Streamlight MicroStream – Item of the Day — 4 Comments

  1. I use this daily. It clips inside of my button up shirt or shirt pocket if I have a pullover on. It is bright enough to illuminate the way to my vehicle at night, or shine in someone’s eyes with my left hand while my other hand is free to, well, do whatever needs doing.

  2. I have carried the Microstream daily for 5+ years. I have lost two of them in that time but they are so inexpensive that it is not a big deal to replace them.

    I am currently carrying the rechargeable one and, honestly, I love it. Because it only requires a USB cable to charge I can charge it at home, work, in the car, anywhere. Micro USB cables are everywhere now because of cell phones and cell phone accessories. I have used this light for EDC as well as backpacking and I have yet to run into a problem with a dead battery. The proprietary battery lasts longer than a AAA and it alows the light to put out over 100 lumens. That being said, when I bought the light I also spent about 6 bucks on another rechargeable battery which I keep in the fold of my wallet so I always have a backup if the one in the light dies.

    Also, I have the Olight as a backup just in case, though I dont carry it with me.

    I have used both versions of the Microstream and they are both excellent.
