Streamlight Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting devices, have launched the Waypoint ® 300, a rechargeable high lumen, pistol grip spotlight with enhanced down-range lighting capability. Featuring 270,000 candela, the lightweight and portable Waypoint ® 300 shines bright, producing 1,000 lumens on high with a powerful long-range targeting beam of 1,039 metres! The ultra-bright, long-distance beam of the Waypoint ® 300 can be used as a spotlight to illuminate far-off objects whilst its portability and long runtime (3.75 to 87 hours on high, medium, low, respectively) makes it perfect for a variety of applications, including search and rescue, law enforcement, and outdoor recreation. It even features an IPX8-rated design for waterproof operation to 2 metres and is impact-resistant to 1 metre, enabling it to float if dropped into the water. “The Waypoint ® 300 not only features extreme brightness, but also includes a beam that reaches over 1,000 metres,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “It can be used as either a handheld mobile searchlight, or, with its integrated stand, as a hands-free scene light to illuminate a scene. It’s the ideal spotlight for boating, camping and other outdoor pursuits, as well as for first responder and law enforcement applications.” The Waypoint ® 300 uses power LED technology and a deep-dish parabolic reflector for long-range targeting with optimum peripheral illumination. On the medium setting, the light offers 550 lumens, 135,000 candela, and a 735-metre beam distance. On low, the light provides 35 lumens and 10,000 candela, with a beam distance of 200 metres. The new light uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery that fully charges in four hours. A convenient LED charging indicator provides charging status.
The rugged Waypoint ® 300 features an unbreakable polycarbonate lens and is O-ring sealed. With a trigger-style switch for momentary or click on/off operation, the light boasts a cushioned handle grip that eliminates user hand fatigue. The light includes an adjustable, high-strength wrist lanyard, and features an integrated stand for hands-free lighting
