You might think you don't need a pen or a flashlight in your EDC as much as you do your phone or wallet. But in those crucial times you do, they're absolutely essential. Finding a way to carry both a pen and a light that's actually convenient goes a long way to make sure you get the most use out of them. And that's exactly what Refyne set out to do with the P1 modular pen. It puts a pen and flashlight together in one tough, titanium package so you don't have to worry about making room for two separate tools.
The P1's true advantage is that it's actually two tools that seamlessly fit together. Thanks to a magnetic twist lock, the flashlight module latches onto the pen, combining into a compact length of 4.65”. You can use the pen module's bolt action to engage its Lamy M22 rollerball refill, while twisting the flashlight's head lets you access its two modes for up to 130 lumens of output thanks to a Cree XP-G2 emitter.
The flashlight module is also quite the capable tool on its own. You can charge its 10180 battery directly through a micro USB port built right into the module's threads, with an LED letting you know when it's full. A magnetic tail lets you attach it to surfaces for hands-free operation, and an optional quick-release tailcap makes the module keychain-ready, comfortably sitting in your pocket at 1.95”.
Whether separately or as one, the Refyne P1 adds up to a tool that rounds out your EDC in style. There's plenty of time to pledge for a P1 in your choice of finish and add-ons at the Kickstarter link below.
