Preview: Streamlight Wedge

posted on July 13, 2021

The new Wedge from Streamlight is a lightweight flashlight ideally shaped for daily pocket carry. Featuring aluminum construction and IPX7 weatherproofing the rechargeable EDC light weighs 3.3 ozs. with a flat profile that is just 0.6” thick and 5.5” long.

The light features a three-hour, constant-on runtime from its internal 1500-mAh battery. Streamlight includes a USB-C-style power cord. An indication LED is provided within the activation switch signifying charge status—red indicates charging and green notifies users that the unit is fully charged and ready for operation.

Wedge operates with two brightness settings; rotating the thumb switch to its constant-on detent produces a 300-lumen/1,200-candela beam, while rotating the switch further and holding it forward activates the light’s 1,000-lumen/3,000-candela Temporarily Heightened Regulated Output (THRO) momentary mode.

The rugged aluminum construction allows for color options—either anodized black or coyote tan—and IPX7 waterproof capability up to one meter. A tempered glass lens comes standard on Wedge. Streamlight includes serrations and contours designed to help improve user purchase. A reversible deep-carry pocket clip is supplied along with a wrist lanyard. MSRP is set for $150.
