Streamlight, Inc. (Eagleville, PA) has launched the USB-C rechargeable Wedge XT, the latest in its line of high-performance everyday carry (EDC) lights. Delivering up to 500 lumens for two hours on high, and measuring just 4.25 inches, the new light features a flat, low-profile design that allows for concealed carry in either pocket, and a tactical push-button tail switch for easy, one-handed use.
The new light features:
- An intuitive tail switch that provides tactile control over the light’s momentary or constant-on operation.
- A Five-Tap lockout feature of the switch, which also prevents the light from turning on inside a pocket or bag.
- A handy deep-pocket clip that secures the light to any pocket or other places for easy access.
The Wedge XT uses power LED technology to provide two output levels: On High, it offers 500 lumens, 1,900 candela, an 87-meter beam distance and a run time of two hours. The Low setting provides 50 lumens, 200 candela, a 28-meter beam distance and a run time of 11 hours. A TEN-TAP programmable switch allows users to select from two different programs: high/low or low/high.
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.
