FourSevens New Preon
FourSevens have been making cutting edge flashlights for years. Their AAA light, the Preon, was a technical step above other lights in its class. The newly updated Preon is even better, boasting several user feedback-based upgrades. Firstly, it features textured screw-cut grooves for a beautiful yet functional tactile grippiness. Its tail cap has been completely redesigned to help prevent unwanted button presses, so it's less likely to accidentally turn on in your pocket. A new, high-tension stainless steel pocket clip adds new carry options for the light. FourSevens also made updates to the internals of the light, including customizable interfaces and more modes for loads of versatility. Rounding out the improvements is a new CREE XP-L emitter that pushes an impressive 220 lumens in the 2xAAA Preon P2, and a capable 100 lumens in the Preon P1. If you've been searching for an EDC light with tons of performance from a single AAA battery, the new Preon is an intriguing option.
Editor's Note: This post has been updated for accuracy. The original post incorrectly suggested a 220 lumen output from the Preon P1, when it is in fact from the 2xAAA Preon P2.
