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.
