LED Failure and New Models of This Light,
This review is from: Streamlight 68202 4-AA Battery 7-LED Flashlight, Yellow (Tools & Home Improvement)
Based on other reviewers' comments, I must have the only faulty example of this flashlight Streamlight has produced. The 4AA performs well indoors, but lacks the light output to be considered adequate for all-around use. Light output diminishes rapidly after only a few hours, and the manufacturer's claims of hundreds of hours of light output are exaggerated. In addition, the LED's in my light began to fail after only about five house of use. First, one LED began blinking and then went out altogether. Finally only three of the seven LED's were burning. I have returned the light to Streamlight with the hopes they would replace this faulty product.
Streamlight promptly repaired and returned the light with no cost to me. It has performed satisfactorily since. Steamlight recently introduced a new, single Luxeon LED version of this light which supposedly has much improved performance. The light is now also available with an incandescent bulb that has received excellent reviews.

This flashlight has been completely redesigned since I wrote this review, and the newer version eliminates all of the negatives I found in the original version. I can highly recommend the newer version!
