The Streamlight WEDGE is a small, waterproof EDC flashlight that pushes up to 1,000 lumens on its momentary THRO (Temporary Heightened Regulated Output) mode. When used in a more measured fashion the everyday carry light produces a 300-lumen constant-on beam with 3 hours of run time.
The USB-C rechargeable Streamlight Wedge, introduced at the virtual 2021 SHOT Show, has an anodized aluminum body with a reversible pocket clip for pocket-carry on either side and runs on a Lithium-Ion battery and weighs less than 18 oz. It’s thin, compact, and utilizes what describe as an “intuitive” rotating thumb switch to rotate between the constant-on and THRO modes.
It’s not designed as a “tactical light”, though it would likely serve well in that capacity. As indicated by our EDC description, this flashlight — much like the Surefire Stiletto it was almost certainly designed to compete with — is streamlined in such a way as to make it a handy and easy to carry task light.
Streamlight is available at a number of online locations, including:
On the THRO momentary setting, the Wedge delivers a 35-second burst of 1,000 lumens and 3,000 candela over a 110-meter beam distance. In Constant On mode, it provides 300 lumens, 1,200 candela, a beam distance of 69 meters and a 3-hour run time.
The Wedge uses a 1500 mAh Lithium Polymer cell battery that recharges by plugging a USB-C cord into the light’s waterproof rear socket. Red and green LEDs indicate charging status.
The Wedge is IPX-7 rated for waterproof operation to one meter and has been impact-tested to the same distance.
