One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Streamlight Scorpion Xenon Flashlight

Here are some detailed photos of the Streamlight Scorpion Xenon Flashlight that I have in the collection. Out of all my high-powered lights, this flashlight doesn't get used much at all. In fact, it's still on its first set of batteries and only turned on to test it out and compare it to other lights in its class. It's a shame too. The Scorpion is a pretty good light and very bright for a compact incandescent flashlight. Like everything these days, new technology seems to take over like LED bulbs...

I actually did a small post about the Streamlight Scorpion. So, I won't go into it much as it slowly becomes obsolete. It only seems most useful for those that need/want that warm tint that incandescent lights put out in their beams instead of the harsh cool white that LEDs do. And because of the warm tint/light, it also seems to perform better in the outdoors. It's much easier on the eyes. Unfortunately, the runtime doesn't last as long as LEDs. Nevertheless, it's a great light to pick up when something goes bump in the night as well as a general purpose flashlight. More photos here...

The body of the Streamlight Scorpion is covered with a rubber sleeve, which helps with the grip. It feels pretty good now, but I have to wonder how long it would last if I gave it some heavy use. I can see it wearing off. If you're one of those people that carry a light in your pockets. This light may not be for you. The rubber body makes it difficult to remove and it would be covered with lint from your pocket. So having a holster should be considered. Also, it has an adjustable beam. And that isn't very common in high-powered incandescent flashlights. I keep it tight and not much on the flood. More photos here...

As you can see, the Streamlight Scorpion is roughly the same size as the Surefire 6PX Pro. It's also similar in size to the Surefire G2 (not pictured), but it's a bit longer for those are familiar with it. Besides being a great general purpose light, it's an awesome light to keep in the car for emergencies because of its compactness and the lithium batteries that it uses.
