Stenlight Temperature Color Shift

Postby cavefox » Apr 21, 2021 7:13 pm

Hey folks, has anyone had a problem with their Stenlight? It's gone from the usual warm yellow color to orange. And the light is not as bright. Running it now on turbo is like it used to be on medium.
Donno if the light is dying or not . . . suggestions?
Thanks!

My Stenlight is over ten years old. Still going strong! No perceptible color shifts nor decrease in brightness. I had it upgraded by the mfgr in 2015 just before the NSS Convention.

About the only problem I have seen is the connectors tend to corrode. I put a dab of bulb grease on them and that helped.

Guess I should disclose that I got it in 2008.
