OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR STREAMLIGHT STINGER,
Thank you for selecting the Stinger, a new concept in portable lights. As with any fine tool, reasonable care
and maintenance of this product will provide years of dependable service.
Please read this manual before using your Stinger. It includes important safety and operating instructions and
should be saved. Flashlight must be charged overnight before first use.
A. The UltraStinger, Stinger XT, Stinger HP and Stinger XT HP are not approved for use in hazardous atmos-
pheres. DO NOT attempt to use these in areas requiring explosion proof lighting.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. This manual contains important safety, operating and maintenance infor-
mation for your Stinger and charger.
C. Before using the charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on the charger.
: To reduce risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, do not attempt to use this charger to
recharge any other product. Likewise, do not attempt to charge the Stinger with any other charger.
Don't abuse the cord. Never carry charger by the cord or yank the cord to disconnect it from a receptacle.
Plug AC charger directly into an electrical outlet. Do not use an extension cord.
G. Do not use a damaged charger. Have damaged cords or plugs replaced immediately.
H. Do not put any metal objects onto the charging terminals located in the charger holder. Although there is
no electrical shock hazard, this action could cause a burn injury.
Remove Stinger from charger holder before attempting any routine cleaning or maintenance. Do not try to
repair the unit or charger yourself. Take it to a qualified service facility or return it to the factory.
Use only battery #75175 or #77175 (see parts list). The contact arrangement in the Stinger precludes
the use of other batteries. Dispose of worn out or damaged batteries properly. Do not attempt to inciner-
ate the battery as it may explode in a fire. Handle the battery carefully and never allow it to short circuit.
A small leakage of liquid from the battery cells may occur under extreme usage or high temperature. This
does not necessarily indicate a failure. However, if the outer case seal is broken and liquid gets on your skin:
1) Wash promptly with soap and water.
2) Neutralize with a mild acid, such as lemon juice or vinegar.
3) If battery liquid gets into your eyes, flush them with clear water for a minimum of ten (10)
minutes and seek immediate medical attention. (Medical note: The liquid is a 25-35%
solution of potassium hydroxide.)
: The Stinger's xenon bulb is pressurized. Wearing safety glasses is recommended during bulb
replacement. The bulb gets extremely hot. Do not touch a lighted bulb with your bare fingers.
M. Use of this product for other than a lighting device is not recommended. Streamlight specifically disclaims
liability for other than recommended use.
The Stinger charger should never be mounted against vinyl or any other heat sensitive surface.
While the charger is designed to hold the Stinger in virtually any orientation, the most secure position is with
the light vertical and the head up. It is not recommended to mount the light completely upside down in mobile
applications. Although the charger is designed to allow the Stinger to be inserted or removed with zero clear-
ance at the ends of the light, for maximum ease of insertion and removal try to leave a minimum of 1 3/4"
clearance from the face cap when the Stinger is in the charger. Two (2) self-tapping #8 x 2" screws are includ-
ed to mount the charger to a variety of surfaces. The correct size hole for these screws in sheet metal is 1/8."
The charger has four interchangeable power cords:
#22050 12V DC Direct Wire cord (DC2)
#22311 120V AC 60 Hz cord with wall transformer
#22051 12V DC cord with cigarette lighter plug (DCI)
#21725 230V AC 50-60 Hz cord with wall transformer
A triangular plate with two recessed contacts is located on the head of the Stinger opposite the switch button.
This plate fits into a mating recess in the charger. The Stinger may be inserted into the charger in two basic
ways. You may either place the barrel between the charger arms with the switch facing out, and pull the
Stinger head between the arms until it locks into place, or simply press the Stinger head (switch out) into the
gap in the arms. This will force the arms apart and allow the head to enter into its proper position. This inser-
tion method allows the Stinger to be mounted with almost zero clearance at its ends.
