Rechargable Stinger new bulb is dim orange

After a year or so my Rechargable Stinger bulb died down to dim orange. I have been good about running the batteries down and recharging. So I replaced the bulb with a new Stinger bulb. No change, still orange and dim. What to do next?

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 ;)

Do I have to change the whole headlight or can I just change the bulb?


Typically lights don't just go dim. If your headlights are dim, you could actually have a alternator/battery charging problem. I would have your battery and alternator tested ASAP! Because if your alternator is bad, your car will die when the battery runs out of juice, which could leave you stranded.

Why would running lamps quit, left headlight is very dim DRL light on dash flashing?


Have your alternator checked yet? Your alternator is what actually powers all of your devices and lights when the car is running. When it is failing it will cause lights to dim. Checking connections, fuses and your alternator should lead you to a good start! Good luck!

My black 360 controller with a rechargable battery, has been having 4 major problems, 1. It started disconnecting while playing Halo Reach and after. 2. My controller was not able to charge any...


Rechargeable batteries will only hold so many charges before they finally die. The controller should be fine, but your battery pack has finally died. You can get new rechargeable packs on Amazon pretty cheap, but don't buy any that seem too good to be true (like the $0.01 ones) because they are old inventory and have lost the ability to charge as well.
I think they run about $15-$20 for a new one, but it's still a better deal than needing new batteries every time your controller dies since the rechargeable ones can last for at least a couple years.

Low beam lights not working the other lights do. want to replace the headlight relay


First check that your headlights are not burned out. You may have been running on one bulb for a while then it feels like the switch or relay died when it was only the other bulb burning out.

it is fairly cheap fix. If the bulbs are old anyhow (more than 7 years), it is worth replacing them because they are fairly dim compared to new ones.

Good luck.

Headlight one side works on bright the other side works on dim


Try swapping the headlight bulbs or buying a known good bulb and testing that way. Sounds like a shorted bulb filament issue.

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.

Battry dies


I would try either buying a new battery or cycling the battery that you have now, before spending the $200. Run the battery completely dead before re-charging it. I've seen handheld phones (this was years ago) that would shut down once the battery reached a specific voltage, which would not be low enough for the battery to lose enough charge to deplete its charge 'memory.' Many batteries will hold a charge for less and less time every charge cycle, simply because they aren't run down. When we encountered this problem, the manufacturers suggested that we hook a light bulb to the battery (we'd use a 12-volt car turn-signal bulb) and when the bulb would go out, we'd re-charge the battery, and then when it was fully charged, run it down with the bulb again. We'd do this three times, and the battery would be good for say another year or so. Hope this helps. If not, let us know.
