The Streamlight Stylus Pro is an ideal flashlight for EDC (Every Day Carry) as well as for smaller kits. At a hair more than five inches long, and a touch thicker than a half inch, it isn’t much larger than a stick pen or marker.
The on/off for the Streamlight Stylus Pro is a push button on the butt end. A half-press will turn the light on and keep it on until you let up on the button. A full-press, until it clicks, turns it on completely until you click it off again.
I found the button to be a little stiff right out of the box but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I have little concern this light will turn on accidentally in a pouch kit or in my pocket.
The white C4 LED bulb delivers 65 lumens, powered by 2 AAA batteries. For a flashlight this small, that’s an awful lot of light. It is plenty bright enough to find your way through a dark building during a power outage or keep you from stumbling on branches during a night time hike.
The bulb is protected by an unbreakable, scratch resistant polycarbonate lens.
The Streamlight Stylus Pro is constructed of Type II MIL-SPEC abrasion and corrosion-resistant anodized aircraft aluminum. Though lightweight at just a couple of ounces, it feels solid and well-crafted. The interior of the light is sealed by rubber O rings, making the unit very water resistant.
It has a removable pocket clip, making it easy to keep secure however you choose to carry it. The clip also serves to keep the light from rolling off the table or wherever you’ve set it down.
The Streamlight Stylus Pro comes with a belt holster as well as the 2 AAA batteries needed for the light.
What I really like about the Streamlight Stylus Pro:
–It packs a lot of light into a small package.
–It uses common AAA batteries, so you don’t have to hunt around to find them. It has a run time of 6-7 hours per set of batteries.
–It is a penlight that is actually the size of a pen, rather than too bulky for comfortable EDC.
–At around twenty bucks on Amazon and elsewhere, it is an affordable, yet very high-quality, flashlight.
