Over at Amazon, they have “big savings” on Streamlight LED flashlights right now. Is this one of those “up to 40% off” deals that never seem to offer any discount at all? Nope!
I opened the link, bracing for some ho-hum prices on very good products, but to my surprise there are actually great prices right now!
Shown above is the Streamlight Stylus Pro, a fabulous LED penlight, and it’s on sale for just $15.01 at the time of this posting.
Some of the other colors are decent prices too, starting at $18, but $15 is lower than I remember ever seeing a Stylus Pro sell for before.
Should you buy this?
The Streamlight Stylus pro is a nicely built flashlight in a machined aluminum body with Type II mil-spec anodized finish and unbreakable polycarbonate lens. It’s sealed to IPX4 water resistance and can endure drops of up to 2 meters.
Some might complain that it “only” outputs 100 lumens of brightness, but that’s plenty for a flashlight of this size and far more than flashlights were capable of just a few years ago.
This is a fantastic LED flashlight, and $15 is a great price. If you’re not a fan of the silver finish, spend more on one of the other colors. The blue-finish version has the next best price at $18.
There are other Streamlight flashlights on sale right now. I have a couple of ProTac LED flashlights, and they’re amazing as well. Check those out if you want a brighter flashlight from a reputable company that stands by their products.
Update: As John mentions in the comments, the Stylus Pro has a somewhat stiff tailcap button. This is good for preventing accidental activation, but it does require a focused press. If you require an easier-to-activate penlight, I would recommend the Nitecore MT06, priced at $30. It’s a little less expensive if you buy the one with pupil dilation markings.
