The problem: I've bought 5 of these now. Two of them: randomly they would not turn on, when they did work, would not shine brightly, and would make a very soft but high pitched noise. These were counterfeit, but by the time I had used them enough to figure this out, many months had passed, could not return. My last purchase 8/28/18 luckily a real streamlight arrived and works great - below is the list of things you have to check right away, and if these are present, then send it back - see attached photos:
Signs of counterfeit Streamlight:
1. ten-tap programming does not work --> counterfeit
2. unscrew the end cap: if O-ring is BLACK (instead of orange) ---> counterfeit
3. take the end cap off, remove battery - if there is NO SPRING in the front end of the flashlight, where it should contact the battery, --->counterfeit
4. end cap with grid texture pattern instead of the "SL" streamlight logo ---> counterfeit
See attached photos.
It has been one year since this review. I have carried this light in my left back pocket daily. A few drops, scuffs and scratches but it is holding up just fine. Wrapped 14" inches of duct tape around the middle because duct tape is always good to have with you. And, it adds a little grip too. It's a great light.

Anyone familiar with military contracts knows that the highest bidder doesn't get the contract. It's often a mix of cheap and reasonably reliable and even then not always. Surefire is not the best light manufacturer. They're great lights to be sure but they're overpriced by 300%. The streamlight is high quality and most LE or civilians won't put this light in military use conditions. Though streamlights likely would survive the same use surefire does. If you're willing to pay the premium to pretend you're Pat Mac then go with surefire. If you're a reasonable and frugal civilian who still wants great weapon accessories then buy this light with confidence.
It takes at least 5 different types of battery that I have found so far. I know that streamlight specifically states not to use Rcr123a rechargeables, but they work fine. Even better is that it runs on 14500 batteries. Now you do lose the low brightness when using rechargeables, it’s more like bright and slightly less bright. Strobe still works fine. But it is brighter than using cr123s for sure. I’ve done some pretty extensive testing with this and have run into no reliability issues yet. So you can run off 1AA, 1AAA, Cr123, Rcr123a, and 14500.
In my testing a 800Mah 14500 will run bright for about an hour. Then it will diminish from about 280 lumens to about 50 lumens (as unscientificly measured against other flashlights of known lumen output) over the next 30 minutes. I stop testing at 1.5 hours, but expect it would just continue to dim and probably give you another 15-30 minutes of useable light. The light gets just as warm as it does with a Cr123 and then cools as the lumens decrease.
The best part is that as compared to my Streamlight 2L-X it has slightly better throw. The 2L-X most likely still puts out more lumens, but it is hard to tell in the dark. They look nearly identical. This light just throws slightly farther and still has great spill.
This light is nice and small and the clip is perfect for a hat brim or a pocket. The emitter is a bit more neutral white, but still a cooler color. Certainly not as yellow as a zebra headlamp in neutral. It is a nice bright neutralish cool white.
I suspect streamlight doesn’t advertise the battery capability because they want to keep selling their Cr123 batteries. That or what I’m doing will kill the emitter quicker. Maybe both. Regardless, I have a bunch of these little lights as they have become my favorite.
Stash them with Cr123s for emergencies, EDC/ use with a 14500 and carry a Cr123 as a back up.
I’ve had luck with this but don’t recommend it since you “could” fry your light. Hasn't happened to me yet. But just to be safe....

This is the most versatile flashlight in terms of battery options, that I know of, without needing any adapter. AAA, AA,(14500), CR123,(16340), there are probably other options that will work to be honest, but these are just what I tried so far... 16mm diameter (maybe16.8mm if you want exact maximum)×38mm, any longer will need be a smaller diameter 14mm ×57mm length are about the maximum dimensions that will fit the lower section. Basically the lower section is tapered a little smaller on the inside diameter, making the AA, AAA center nicely, but just the fact that I can use such a variety of rechargeable, or single use batteries makes this the perfect EDC, at least in my mind... the "ten tap" programming is excellent, I prefer the "low" setting, where I can 2 tap to get the "high" setting when needed.
This is my second "streamlight" my first was well used, dropped, submerged, lost & found a few times, and never failed me in 7 years of daily use (some weekends off). It was pretty scratched up, but worked without fail, in the end, unfortunately it was lost, and I had a few other cheaper ones that I used until now... This is a nice replacement, it's brighter, the "ten tap" is also a nice upgrade, and a better fit in my hand.
I'm ex military, and ever since Streamlight came out with the Sidewinder Compact II that used either CR123A or AA batteries, I'd been hoping they would do the same for an EDC size flashlight. I own several Streamlight products, either for work or outdoors activities they all were one battery type or another. Now I tend to always carry spares, but if you run out, some types are harder to find than others, ex: CR123A.
Now that they offer the ProTac 1L-1AA, it takes care of that problem. It runs on CR123A Lithium, AA Alkaline or AA Lithium batteries. As for those that don't read the info supplied by Streamlight, they DON'T TAKE RECHARGEABLE batteries.
Comes with a 2 way pocket clip. Folks say it comes off easy, to fix that problem get some mini zip ties, and put it around where the clip attaches to the body, won't come off.
Solid construction, great materials, and made in the USA. Lifetime warranty and comes with both CR123A and AA batteries as well as a small belt pouch. All at a great price. Pick one up, you won't regret it!
I decided to pick this light up because it provides more light than the Stylus and only uses 2 AA batteries. I also have a Polytac LED but CRA123 batteries are so darn expensive and I can’t seem to find any high-quality rechargeables.
This really is a great flashlight. Considering the size and the fact that it only uses 2 AA batteries, this thing throws an amazing amount of light. Pair this light with Amazon’s high-capacity rechargeable batteries and you have yourself a very reliable tool.
My profession requires me to use flashlights daily and this is going to be my go-to, regular carry without a doubt.
Ten-Tap makes mode selection fast and easy
Hi & Low provide perfect amounts of light
Momentary on by holding down end cap
SILENT when carried - NO battery rattle
Convenient pocket clip - great for vest-carry
Anti-roll face cap
Serial # (good if colleagues use same light)
None, really. Would be nice if there was a more durable finish (similar to the Polytac) for this light.
Beam is nice and tight, I've had AAA battery pen light from Streamlight and Thrunite and I don't like how much they spread out the beam
The button is flush with the top and accidental actuation is almost impossible. The included sheath is not the greatest but it's not bad.
The 10 tap programmable feature is a plus, as I always like to change them from the factory settings.
I haven't gone through the batteries that came with the light yet but I can't imagine them lasting too long on the high mode.
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a small factor flashlight and you can expect this to work when your life depends on it.
Don't get me wrong; it is a great product but just not for me.
As for the pros, it is brighter and almost has the double candela output (candela is like the "resolution" of the flashlight, it is the thing that controls how far a light could reach, and IMO, it is a way more important than just lumens ) than most surefire counterparts, but it is too long and too big for a spec-ops SBR setup.
I was a contractor and now an instructor who is training a lot under night visions, so for me, I have to run IR aiming lasers on most of my rifles, and it is very important for those rifles to shoot completely ambitious by using both white light and night visions.
Unfortunately, I'd like to put all my accessories in the front of the rail, and because the size and weight, I can not access to the top button of my IR device when shooting left handed, and because I am using the surefire warcomp as my muzzle device, it is no way for me to grab directly on that flashlight as a secondary grip.
So, do I love it? Yes! Would I purchase it again? Probably never.
However, for the most people who is using longer rifles or do not use IR aiming devices, please give it a go!
First it can run out of 3 different battery type(CR123, AA or AAA) makes it the life saver wherever you are. I prefer to use CR123 for the more powerful light output, but with AA Lithium it run well and long.
The switch is just perferct. High output right on then strobe and low output using quick push to cycle, it is really simple. The possibility to change the way the switch operate through the "programmable" function is interesting also, even if i do not use it.
Coming with a belt/mollee pouch is awesome. The 2-way clip allows to carry in a pocket, to attach the light to you cap for hand-free use or like.
All in all, this is the best EDC flashlight you can buy.
This is just an EDC for me. I'm not a first responder, but like to be prepared. My main concern was weight as it is carried in a side pocket on my cargo shorts and it's barely noticeable, if at all, so I know it'll be fine come winter when wearing multi pocket pants.
It feels very sturdy and therefore, hopefully durable.
I bought this based on a lot of other positive reviews and as mentioned, am not disappointed.
- accepts 18650 batteries
- cable on the remote switch tail cap is pivot-able, so you can easily bend it back towards light's body and run it forward if needed
- cheap exterior finish
- remote switch is not as as depicted (toggle button is at the back)
