I've been a volunteer firefighter for more that 15 years. I've bought many Streamlights. I also work in the restaurant repair field, doing HVAC, refrigeration and cooking equipment repairs. Yesterday, I was checking on a freezer, using my flashlight to help me in this process. I sat my flashlight down on the freezer, as I have many times, to make notes. Then it all went wrong (or so I thought).
A cook bumped into the freezer and knocked my flashlight off. It slid into a fryer, which had just cooked a batch of French fries. 350-degree fry oil was consuming my flashlight! I grabbed a towel and retrieved the light. It was TOO HOT to touch. Cooling it down in a bed of ice, I then picked it up in fear it wouldn't work!
I pushed the button, and BAM it came on. I tried each setting and it worked just like always. You guys are the best flashlight builders ever!
