Its a great light, uses AA batteries, very bright but not blinding. Im an industrial electrical and these lights work great for working in cabinets, under machines and any general use. Small and convenient to carry, I dont use the holster, just clip in pants pocket.
Only 3 stars due to I purchased these for 16.99, just a week after purchasing I received an email around black friday for 10% off and free shipping. I went to purchase several more for coworkers. Only to find the price jacked up more than 10% to 18.99. Unacceptable and due to that, I dont plan any future purchases.
started good but went down hill
Reviewer: Keith Summers | De Pere, WI
THIS WAS A NICE LIGHT TO BEGIN WITH. HOWEVER, AFTER NOT A LOT OF USE, IT GOT TO A POINT WHERE IT WOULDN'T STAY ON. IT WAS NOT A BATTERY ISSUE. iT WOULD JUST RANDOMLY SHUT OFF. POSSIBLY A SWITCH ISSUE.
Decent light for the money, except...
Reviewer: JAL | Warrensburg, MO
The good: Overall, this is a decent little gadget. It's really bright, super efficient, and runs on AAA batteries you can get anywhere. Of course, it's not a spotlight or anything, but I would certainly say this flashlight holds its own against the Minimag's brightness. I would probably recommend this light if you are absolutely strapped for cash and need a pen light (but see below).
The bad: Well for starters, this light is not particularly well built. It's hard to explain, but it just feels hulky and cheap. The cap has a squeakyness to it that attests to this. Also, the clicky switch on the back is difficult to depress, requiring you to really dig in with your thumb to turn on the light. It's not the end of the world, but if you want a user friendly, well built light, the Stylus Pro may not be for you.
My second issue is that while running this light for approximately 15 minutes consecutively, one of the original Duracell batteries that it came with exploded. The battery was not expired, and was in the light for about a month prior, with intermittent use. It is entirely possible that the battery was the culprit, but I suspect it has something to do with the design of the flashlight since I have never had an issue with Duracells before.
I sent the light to Streamlight, and they promptly remitted a (supposedly) brand new replacement, which was DOA. At first, I couldn't even swap out the batteries since they were stuck firmly in the light. To make a long story short, I managed to pry them out using a screw and I found they were wrapped in cellphane, which caused them to become stuck inside. In any event, I tried new batteries -- to no avail. I also noticed that the reflector appears to have been warped and wavy.
Light weight, very bright, reliable.

I carry this flashlight with me almost always. Because I have difficulty seeing in low light situations, I frequently can benefit from an additional light source. I have tried many other small flashlights. They are either too big, too heavy, not bright enough, or go through batteries too fast. The Stylus Pro is perfect. I am retired, but still work as an EMT. I use this flashlight all the time. After 2 months, I am still using the original batteries, and it is still amazingly bright. I intend to buy another Stylus Pro Penlight as a back-up. It is an excellent buy. And no, I do not work for the company!
Light weight, compact, can't feel it while carrying
Reviewer: getandyc | CA
This is by far the best every-day carry flashlight I've seen. Light weight, compact, almost can't feel it while in pocket. Great lumen output for such a small light(24 lumen)
intense, tight, high output, beam . . .
Reviewer: trebe | Westport, CT
Recent developments in LED technology are very promising. LED's are an economical, super bright light source, that draw less power, and have a much longer life than incandescent lamps. Although LED's do degrade slowly over time, they will still produce decent output for a long, long time.
This Streamlight 66118 flashlight utilizes a single high output LED as the light source, and powered by two AAA batteries, produces a very bright and intense beam of light. Beam spread is rather narrow, and not adjustable. The flashlight provides good general illumination for short distances, and has the kick to reach quite far.
The housing is weather resistant anodized aluminum, with a rubber sealed on/off switch at the top. Gently pushing the switch, temporarily turns the light on. There is a metal clip which is attached to the screw on cap with the switch. As has been noted in another review, if you are not careful, the clip can scrape the finish of the housing when the cap is screwed off or on. Putting a layer of tape around the housing, where the clip touches the housing should help prevent damage. A serviceable nylon holster is also included.
Excellent little light
Reviewer: Archon313 "Dusty" | Spokane, WA
I've been carrying the Streamlight Stylus Pro and the Streamlight Microstream for a couple of years now, and I think I can safely say that these are excellent lights. I never leave home without one of them.
I compared them to my 4 C cell Maglight (non LED) and promptly got rid of my Maglight. The light cast by both the Stylus Pro and the Microstream were very comparable to the Maglight, but at an obvious weight advantage (not to mention battery consumption).
I started out carrying the Stylus Pro in my pocket, next to my trusty pocket knife, but, after about a year I bought myself a Microstream, since is fits so much better. Now the Stylus Pro sits on my night stand for when I need to check on noises or anything like that.
My wife liked the Stylus Pro so much that I bought her one too.
One other very positive note: One day at work I brushed by a pallet of boxes and caught the pocket clip of my Stylus Pro on one of them and it bent out really bad. It eventually broke. I called up Streamlight and told them what happened and they sent me two pocket clips free of charge (attached to two tail caps!). This is an awesome company and they provide excellent customer service.
I would STRONGLY suggest that if you're looking for a nice little flashlight, get yourself either one of these lights... Or heck, get one of each :-)
love my streamlight stylus
Reviewer: mrfixit | Minnesota
Totally impressed with this little flashlight. Small size fits and clips easily into pants pocket. Surprisingly bright beam shines much farther than I expected. Aluminum housing is very durable, and I've gotten it wet several times with no problems. The light has been used quite a bit and is still using the original batteries. One hand operation makes it very handy.
Super bright, low cost, high quality
Reviewer: James | Afghanistan
Unbelievable flashlight for the money. Small diameter fits along with multitool in 5.11 tactical pants pocket or in the shirt pocket. I have since ordered two more.
Great light Great price
Reviewer: Everyman | Everywhere
Lightweight, intense light, easy to operate with one hand- this would be an incredible tool for law enforcement or an emergency responder. I'm buying a few more immediately I doubt one could ask for a more versatile hand held light. The beam is very intense- might even do well as a self-defense item as it is blinding if shone directly in the eyes. Money well spent!
size, weight, durability and great brightness
Reviewer: gizmo fan | OR
Great light for the money. The 4sevens might be the ultimate pen light but is pretty pricey. The streamlight gets the job done at a great price.
Reviewer: B---- | Houston, Texas
Never owned a better light!
Super bright, easy to get batteries, tough construction and even a holster with a lifetime guaranty.
I also bought the Streamlight Ulta Stinger and it too is wonderful.
Streamlight has turned me into a light junkie.
I'm spoiled and will never buy another Maglite nor anything else.
Brightest pocket light I've ever owned
Reviewer: Eddie | Chula Vista
I need a bright pocket light for my work. I originally purchased UK Pen Light S. That was a good light (4 Lumen)with great battery life. I saw a review on this Stylus Pro and was impressed with it's brightness (up to 24 Lumens). Both use 2 AAA batteries. Now I have to see how long the batteries last. When I receive my order I was so pleased that I ordered 4 more for friends and co-workers.
Cost, light output, battery life, durability
Reviewer: Greg | PA
I bought this light for myself to 'pad' up an order (free shipping) and was amazingly surprised! As a self-prescribed flash-light nut, this has to be one of my favorite all-around flashlights. For it's size, the light output is amazing - it rivals much more expensive 2AA LED lights. I liked this so much I purchased one for my father to use at work, who is a service technician. He's always lugging a huge 3C mag light. Although skeptical at first, I've noticed that he began bringing it everywhere! Work, the camp ground, their kitchen table. Anytime I ask 'you have a flashlight handy?', he pulls this out. It's cost is probably the best part - cheap enough that you can use it for work and if it gets lost (or stolen - which I could easily see happen with this light), you're not out a billion bucks like some of the other brands. The size is perfect in my mind for a work/inspection light - it can easily slip into a pocket without lugging you down, yet large enough to find in a toolbag.
