Streamlight Inc. has developed the Waypoint, a handheld, pistol-grip searchlight designed to provide extremely bright lighting for a wide variety of low-light applications.
The Waypoint uses a C4 power LED to provide an output of 210 lumens and 115,000-candela peak beam intensity on the high setting over a range of 678 meters. Its housing is constructed of high-impact polycarbonate, and it includes an integrated stand for stationary scene lighting. It provides three lighting settings, high, low and strobe modes.
“Whether used as a handheld mobile searchlight in active situations or set up as stationary lighting to illuminate a scene,” Streamlight President Ray Sharrah said, “the Waypoint is a highly effective tool for those who need a rugged and powerful lighting option.”
The Waypoint, when powered by four “C” alkaline batteries, delivers 8.5 hours of runtime on the high setting and 120 hours on the low and strobe settings. It provides an unlimited run time when using an included 12-volt DC power cord.
The new light’s C4 LED is impervious to shock and features a 50,000-hour lifetime. The Waypoint’s deep-dish parabolic reflector produces a long-range targeting beam while optimizing peripheral illumination. The light has a cushioned handle grip to eliminate user hand fatigue, as well as a high-strength wrist lanyard. It weighs 1.8 pounds, measures 6.75 inches long by 7.14 inches high and conforms to the ANSI/NEMA FL-1 Flashlight Standard.
