It's a bad battery, the person that sold you that light may have sold you an old flashlight. Every strealight battery has a manufactured date code, four digit on most. Check that out and send it for evaluation before you go ahead and purchase parts you may not even need. The switches are covered under a lifetime warranty just so you know ;)

If the charger indicator works i would buy the battery and the bulb and replace them at the same time, as you don't know the exact condition of either. Say you bought the battery and it worked fine for a week or so and the life of the bulb ran out ?. Tricky buys on e-bay.........

When hooked up to charger red light blinks. Light will not come on without charger hooked to it.



  • Hi, i can help.
  • When the lights just blink like that on the charger it is saying that the battery is bad and will no longer take a charge.
  • These flashlight are real impressive but there have also been reports of the charging unit failing.
  • Make sure to clean the contacts well with rubbing alcohol.
  • I had one time that was a real pain if it was not set just perfect on the charger.
  • So there are a couple things to try but I think you just need to get a new set of rechargeable. Lithium batteries like the ones this flashlight uses can't be overcharged or over discharged of they malfunction.
  • CR123A Lithium rechargeables are cheap these days. spring on a new pair and you should be fine.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

My stinger light will not take charge,if i use my other light i can charge the battery. what it can be the problem


All batteries go bad eventually. Heat is bad for them, as well as freezing. Slow charging is better than fast charging. Often if I take the built in batteries in to a electronics place, I can get cheap replacements that can easily be soldered in. Hobby shops are good for this, because they go through batteries so quickly on radio controlled toys.

My streamlight stinger xt flashlight won't charge in the holder, however, the second battery does charge in the "piggyback"


Could be a lamp holder or charger problem. I suggest going to Streamlight's website and find an authorized service center in your area or send it to the factory for repair.

Light does not come on. It flickers on and off.


If the flickering is constant and is not affected by bumping etc then it probably is in some type of mode. maybe you can change this mode by slightly pressing and relaeasing the power button when it is on. On the other hand maybe the battery terminals are abit lose.

streamlights have lifetime warranties. Contact them to find a dealer that can fix it. They might even let you send it in to get fixed.

Rechargable Stinger new bulb is dim orange


Could possibly be a bad switch, I would also get that battery tested out also. If you still have a receipt it should be covered under warranty. If not try sending it in anyway. Limited lifetime warranty does not include bulb, or batteries but, anything else on that Stinger should have a lifetime warranty. Of course that excludes abuse. Check out the website www.streamlight.com and go to FAQ for a nearest Authorized Service Center or send it directly to Streamlight. Address also listed on the website. Hope that helps ;)

Streamlight stinger not bright


No! the last thing you want to do is get another light, if this light is still in top shape I suggest you send it back to Streamlight for warranty repair. Lifetime warranty on the light alone as far as the battery goes if you're getting an authentic Streamlight Rechargeable battery there shouldn't be a problem. If it's a knock-off battery you're on your own. Check this website out www.streamlight.com send it back to the address in contact or find an Authorized service center in your area. From what you're telling me here I honestly think it's a bad battery, I could be wrong it may be a bad switch. The switch is covered under a lifetime warranty. So take advatange of it while you can! ;) hope that helps.

Light will not come on


How long have you had this light until it was defective. I believe you're having a switch failure. You should send the light in for evaluation, switches are covered under a lifetime warranty. ;)
