Ultracompact and incredibly bright, the Preon was the world's first AAA battery powered ulght with a CREE XP-G LED. That means it uses a readily available battery size while achieving surprising brightness. Three brightness levels and four special modes controlled by a twist on the single battery ulghts or push-button tail cap on the dual battery pen ulghts allow you to dial in the type of ulght you need for any situation. Available in satin titanium or a variety of colorful anodized finishes. It's the perfect pocket ulght.FEATURES Pulse-width modulation for optimal battery performance, compact, sleek, simple, intuitive interface, water resistant (IPX-8)DIMENSIONS Length: 5.05 inches/Body diameter: 0.6 inches/Head diameter: 0.6 inches/Weight (without batteries): 0.8 ozLED EMITTER CREE XP-GPOWER & VOLTAGE Two AAA batteries (included) 0.9V-3VSPOT BEAM Angle: 18.2 degrees/Diameter at 3mm: 960mmFLOOD BEAM Angle: 18.2 degrees/Diameter at 3mm: 960mmBRIGHTNESS LEVELS Low (2.2 lumens, 23 hours), Medium (22 lumens, 6 hours), High (160 lumens, 0.8 hours)SPECIAL MODES Strobe, SOS, Beacon Hi, Beacon LoREFLECTOR TexturedBODY MATERIAL Type-III hard-anodized aircraft-grade aluminumBEZEL MATERIAL Type-III hard-anodized aircraft-grade aluminumLENS MATERIAL Optical-grade glass lens with antireflective coating on both sidesINCLUDED ACCESSORIES Battery, spult ring for keychain attachment, spare o-ring
Great EDC Light, But...
This review is from: FOURSEVENS Preon P2 Ultracompact Flashlight, Satin Titanium Finish/Cool White LED
Pros: This is a great EDC flashlight and I love the titanium finish. It is the weight to brightness ratio is fantastic and a big thumbs up for using AAA batteries. Multiple setting are great for conserving battery life, but when you need the full 160 lumen brightness, its there.
Cons: The pocket clip is flimsy. I wear jeans for work everyday, and the thick denim at the edge of the front pockets will stretch the clip out within a few weeks. I now carry it with a braided paracord key-chain on the lanyard ring. The light still sits well in my front pocket and remains vertical, and I can access it easily with the paracord. I would rather have a heavy duty pocket clip, but you can't always get what you want.
Other Thoughts: There is some false advertising here from Newegg. You are not saving $12.50 on this light by purchasing it here, you will be saving $1.50. They are selling the version using the CREE XP-G LED which is priced at $64.00 from the manufacturer. If this was the version using the CREE XP-G2 (Gen 2) LED, then you would indeed be saving the $12.50, but it is not. I paid $62.50 for this exact light (the GEN 1) and I am thrilled with the value, I just don't like it when distributes provide misleading information.
