Like the PT™ series, the WayPoint™ had a much anticipated arrival. I took the opportunity to open the first package and inspect for myself this unique new light. My first reaction was one of surprise regarding the overall size of the WayPoint™. It is smaller than I had imagined it to be based upon the pre-launch information and pictures released from Streamlight®. It has a very comfortable natural grip, void of any raised seams or mold lines that could cause hand irritation after holding on to it for an extended amount of time.
Overall it is a nice solid product and is well made. The WayPoint™ has a Lumen output rating of 210 and a run time of over 8 hours. What is important to note here is that the lumen output will decrease proportionate to time used. This is a good example of the major difference in performance between alkaline vs. lithium batteries.
One feature of the WayPoint™ that should be noted is that it has an integrated ratcheting stand on the top of the light. All you have to do is rotate the stand and flip over the light to aim it where you need the light. A good hands free feature, especially if you are stuck on the side of the road changing a tire.


PT™ Series lights are here!

After a long awaited arrival, the all new PT™ series from Streamlight® has finally arrived. I have to say, they are well worth the wait! All four versions of this little light are an example of the innovative skills of the Streamlight® design and technology team. Smaller in length and diameter than other lights offered by Streamlight with a comparable output, these lights are a true blend of form and function.
Take for example the PT™ 2L, my personal favorite. It has an overall length of 4.68 inches and a diameter of .9 and weighs just 2.8 oz. The best part is that it has a lumen output of 180! All I can say is Wow. If you have not ordered one of these, you should. They are going fast.
