Application

The high-performance Wedge XT shines a powerful light into spaces an overhead light cannot reach. Auto professionals can simply reach into their pocket for quick access to bright light for inspecting under a chassis, hood, or dashboard.  It’s handy for times when searching for a dropped screw or part on the floor, or for pinpointing trouble deep within an engine. 

Selling points 

  • Measuring just 4.25", it features a flat, ergonomic design for concealed placement in pockets and a comfortable fit in hands. 
  • Its tactical push-button tail switch provides easy, one-handed control over the light’s momentary or constant-on operation. 
  • Comes with two lighting modes: 
    • High: 500 lm; 1,900 candela, 87m beam distance; runtime two hours. 
    • Low: 50 lm; 200 candela; 28m beam distance; runtime 11 hours. 
  • The integrated USB-C lithium polymer cell battery can be conveniently recharged in the light by plugging the included USB-C cord into the waterproof USB port. 
  • Its TEN-TAP programmable switch allows users to select from high/low or low/high; a FIVE-TAPTM lockout feature also prevents the light from turning on inside a pocket or a bag. 

Features and benefits 

  • The Wedge XT is a compact everyday carry light that fits easily in pockets or attaches to clothing items via its pocket clip.  
  • The handy tail switch and ergonomic design allow technicians to operate the light with just one hand. 
  • Because its USB rechargeable battery can be conveniently charged within the light, the Wedge XT will be ready to illuminate a space when needed. Red and green indicator LEDs above the charge port provide charge status. 

Origin

Modeled after the popular Wedge EDC light from Streamlight, the more compact, ergonomic design of the Wedge XT provides comfortable deep pocket carry for automotive technicians. The Wedge XT replaces the rotary side switch with a tactical push-button tail switch for even easier one-handed operation in an automotive setting. Overall, providing the form, fit, and function requested by customers.  

Manufacturing/engineering specifications

Made from rugged anodized aluminum and featuring a polycarbonate lens, the Wedge XT balances durability with performance. Measuring 4.25" long and 1" high, it weighs 2.62 oz. with the battery. It is IPX7-rated for waterproof operation to one meter; it's also impact-resistance tested to 1m. 

Storage and display

The light ships in corrugated master cartons containing six units per master pack. Streamlight recommends hanging the blister-boxed packages on pegs.
