    Default Streamlight - Tactical Xenon - 3 lithiums

    Hi,

    I'm UK newbie who is usually more interested in luxeon
    flashlights than incandescents.

    However the above torch is meant to be very good value
    and very bright (10000 lux), with a nice adjustable
    focus. Its also quite compact at about 6".

    What I would like to know is whether it can run
    on 2 rechargeable 150S Pila batteries, because
    at a run time of an hour it will eat up CR123A's.

    Also, does anyone know the best/most reasonable place
    to order one from?

    I've seen that they retail in brightguy.com for $59=00
    but I've seen them for even less somewhere else when searching.

    TIA.

    Before you buy, check out thr StreamLight XT-HP. Nice rechargeable and 40,000 CP. Clikey switch end and real nice weight and feel. I really like mine. Turbo head and nice sharp beam.

    No batteries to replace.....

    I am not sure of UK but BrightGuy.com in USA has good price, prompt shipping, and fiendly service. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grinser2.gif[/img]

    Size 15s - checked with Joe at outdoorsupplies

    He charges $90-00 - seems a bit steep compared to some
    of the US sites I found, although I know shipping will
    be extra. He also didn't know whether 150S Pilas would
    fit and suggested I ask in CPF.

    Nikola, thanks for the heads up about the XT-HP.

    Is there a review about this anywhere? What does 40,000
    CP translate to in terms of lux?

    I might try brightguy.com.

    Thanks,
    D/

    erm - as nice a light as the stinger hp or xthp is - they arent that significant improvement over the standard stinger - although for total throw they probably would kick its arse
