[SHOT Show 2020] Streamlight Handheld Spotlights

I’ve reviewed a few Streamlight flashlights here in the past… the Stylus Pro COB, MicroStream USB, and the Polytac X USB Multi-Fuel. At the SHOT Show this year, I looked at a couple of their larger lights.

Waypoint 300 Rechargeable Spotlight

The first new light that caught my eye was the Waypoint 300. This is a good-looking handheld rechargeable spotlight of handy size.

The Waypoint 300 uses power LED technology and a deep-dish parabolic reflector for long-range targeting with optimum peripheral illumination.

This is not to be confused with the “Waypoint LED,” which is a C-cell model with fewer lumens.

Dualie Waypoint

The Dualie Waypoint is a different sort of spotlight, with a horizontal handle instead of a pistol-grip type. This allows for a more natural grip when using the light down low. It also adds a smaller flood light, giving this light a lot of flexibility. Unlike the Waypoint 300, this one is not rechargeable and is fueled by 4 C-cell alkaline batteries.

I can see using the bottom-facing flood light with its “soft, wide beam” to illuminate a path through the woods on your way to or from a deer stand, or hang it up using the handle or D-ring to light up a small area. The spot light can reach up to 548 meters, so that’s good for shining on specific targets. You can run one light at a time, or both at once.

First responders, industrial professionals, and outdoor enthusiasts alike will appreciate the Dualie Waypoint’s flexible options, whether using it for illuminating low-lit pathways or performing close-up tasks. And combining both the spot and flood beams can help users to see what is ahead and around them so they can avoid slips, trips, and falls.

Manufacturer specs:

  • Handheld light with both spot and flood lights
  • Three output modes: spot, flood, spot/flood combo
  • IPX7 waterproof to 1 meter and it floats
  • 2 meter impact resistance tested

  • Handle can be used to hang the light
  • Integrated stand for hands-free scene lighting
  • 1,000 lumens (spot/flood combo) with both forward and downward facing beams
  • Spot light high: 750 lumens/72,000 candela/535 meters
  • Flood light high: 450 lumens/240 candela/31 meters
  • Runtime hours (spot): 125 on low; 3.5 on high
  • Battery Type: Alkaline, 4 C-cells (not included)

Although the Dualie Waypoint isn’t new this year, it’s well worth your consideration.
