OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR STREAMLIGHT LITEBOX
Thank you for selecting the Streamlight LiteBox,
reasonable care and maintenance of this product will provide years of dependable service. Please read this
manual before using your Streamlight. It includes important safety and operating instructions and should be
saved. Charge the LiteBox overnight before first use.
The LiteBox is available in three basic systems, each available in regular and dual lamp versions: the
Standard model, the Vehicle model and the Power Failure model. All come with convenient recharging racks
that do not require LiteBox disassembly for charging. The battery is rated at a nominal 10 ampere-hours and
is capable of being recharged up to 500 times and will power the lamp options for various run times
described in Table 2.
The Standard and Vehicle systems use the same basic lantern with different charging racks. For Standard
use, the LiteBox comes complete with both AC 120 volt and DC 12 volt cigarette lighter power cords and
Standard type charge racks, which will accept these cords. The Vehicle model version comes complete with
a truck mountable hardware rack, and an 8 watt spot lamp standard. The Power Failure lantern itself differs
electronically from the other model, but uses the same charge rack as the Standard model. Both AC and DC
cords are included, but only the AC works in the power failure mode. The power failure feature of this unit
provides emerging lighting automatically when the power fails. It is one of the few units available anywhere
that gives you total portability in an emergency type light.
A. BEFORE USING YOUR LITEBOX AND CHARGER, READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS MANUAL AND
ALL CAUTIONARY MARKINGS ON THE CHARGER.
: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, DO NOT attempt to recharge
the LiteBox with any other chargers than those supplied by Streamlight. Likewise, do not attempt to
charge any other product with Streamlight chargers.
: Never leave your LiteBox with its lamp face against any surface including skin while in oper-
ation. The resultant heat build-up can cause a fire or burns.
D. Careful observation of the lantern LED's serves as an important warning of possible charge circuit mal-
function which may cause battery overcharging. The green LED should turn "on" steadily and the red LED
should turn "off" completely within 24 hours of charging time. If the red LED stays "on" past this time,
remove the light from service and return it immediately to the Streamlight factory at 1030 W.
Germantown Pike, Norristown, PA 19403 for free evaluation and repair. In extremely rare circum-
stances, an overcharged battery may release a flammable hydrogen gas mixture. In the unlikely event
that this mixture should ignite, bodily injury could result.
E. The LiteBox should not be switched on and off during charging unless only the green LED is lighted.
Remove the LiteBox from the charger holder (rack) before attempting any cleaning or routine mainte-
nance. Do not try to repair the lantern or charger yourself. Take it to a qualified repair facility or return it
to the Streamlight factory.
G. Recycle the battery responsibly when no longer serviceable. DO NOT INCINERATE THE BATTERY
EVEN IF IT IS SEVERELY DAMAGED OR COMPLETELY WORN OUT. The battery can explode in a
fire. Recycle properly.
H. Handle the battery carefully and never allow it to short circuit. A shorted battery can deliver hundreds of
amperes of current which can easily start a fire.
CHARGING AND OPERATION
To release the light from the rack, push the black bar down, slide the light forward and lift up. The LiteBox
will only fit one (1) way into the rack.
The on/off switch is on the left side of the handle, covered with a black rubber boot. A pair of charging
indicators are on the opposite side underneath the information label. The red LED means that the light is
charging. The green LED means it is fully charged and ready for use.
It is important to understand that a battery can take from only minutes to a maximum of 24 hours to fully
charge depending on the battery's residual charge and other factors. When fully charged, the red LED
should turn "off" completely and the green LED should turn "on" steadily.
a truly remarkable portable light. As with any fine instrument,
