First Look: Streamlight Jr. F-STOP Flashlight

posted on February 28, 2018
Designed for compactness and easy use, the Streamlight Jr. F-STOP flashlight is purpose-built to give consumers a durable, easily maintained light for a range of everyday tasks.

“The Streamlight Jr. F-STOP is lightweight, easy to carry and offers versatile spot-to-flood lighting to cover every need, from task lighting such as automotive repairs and equipment checks to area workplace lighting requirements,” said Michael F. Dineen, Streamlight vice president of sales and marketing. "It’s compact, fits into a holster or clips onto your pocket, and uses easily sourced AA batteries.”

One of the highlight features of the Streamlight Jr. light is its adjustable-focus beam, which is designed to enable users to transition easily from a far-reaching, narrow beam to a wide, smooth flood light. To adjust the size and reach of the beam output, the light features a sliding bezel, giving owners the ability to easily tailor their light's output size to fit any unique scenario.

Each Streamlight Jr. F-STOP flashlight is built with an anodized-aluminum housing textured to provide a solid grip in all weather conditions. At the front of the light, the polycarbonate lens protects the company's cutting-edge LED lighting technology, which provides a maximum output of 250 lumens and 360 candela with a wide beam reaching out to 38 meters on the light's flood setting. On the beam setting, the light provides a narrow beam with an output of 220 lumens and 5,600 candela with a maximum distance of 150 meters.

The light can function on two commonly available AA batteries or lithium L91 patteries. Powered by the AA alkaline batteries, the run time on the Streamlight Jr. is 6 hours. With the lithium-cell batteries, run time increases to 10 hours. The light is rated IPX4 water-resistant and is tested to withstand drops from 1 meter. The light weighs 4.4 ounces with two AA batteries installed and measures 6.5 inches in overall length.

The Streamlight Jr. F-STOP flashlight ships with a removable pocket clip and a nylon holster and sells at a suggested retail price of $55.08.
