21 Aug Streamlight Inc. launches Wedge XT
Streamlight Inc – a provider of high-performance lighting, has unveiled its newest product, the USB-C rechargeable Wedge XT.
Delivering up to 500 lumens for two hours when on high, the new light features a flat, low-profile design that makes it suitable for concealed carry in a pocket, as well as a tactical push-button tail switch for each, one-handed operation.
“Like the popular Wedge EDC light, the unique, ergonomic design of the Wedge XT makes it the perfect concealed carry light for patrol duty, tactical manoeuvres, and automotive, industrial, or DIY uses,” explained Michael F Dineen, Streamlight’s Chief Revenue Officer. “It’s also perfect for outdoor uses, including hunting, camping, boating, or just about any activity where you need a dependable light on hand for instant, bright illumination.”
The Five-Tap lockout feature of the switch also prevents the light from turning on inside a pocket or bag, while a handy deep-pocket clip secures the light to any pocket or other places for easy access.
The Wedge XT features an integrated 950 mAh lithium polymer cell battery that can be conveniently recharged in the light by plugging the included USB-C cord into the waterproof USB port. The battery fully recharges in six hours; red and green indicator LEDs above the charge port provide charge status.
The torch balances durability with performance. It is manufactured from rugged anodized aluminium and features a polycarbonate lens. In addition, it is IPX7-rated for waterproof operation to one meter; and impact-resistance tested to one meter.
