When you put together manufacturing prowess, over a decade of experience in pioneering flashlights, and the latest in flashlight tech, you're bound to get something special. And it's hard to describe the Preon P1 MkIII as anything but, with all the history behind it. Born out of the partnership of Prometheus Lights and Foursevens, the Preon represents a quality tool that only makers of their caliber can produce. Needless to say, it's one of the most refined AAA lights you can buy today.

The Preon P1 MkIII's exterior is a subtle fusion of both companies' design languages. On first glance you see the familiar Foursevens Preon, with its machined ridges and tapered middle barrel to accommodate your preferred grip method. Then there's the Prometheus screw-in titanium clip: a clip so good it sells on its own for other flashlights. Finally there's the materials the Preon comes in: Electroless Nickel plating and CR3 (Tri-Chrome) + PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating over 6061-T6 aluminum, both technical solutions Prometheus have used to give their lights a unique total coating that doesn't mess with the light's rear click switch operation.

In spite of its looks, the Preon P1 MkIII isn't meant to be just pocket candy. It comes with the latest and greatest Nichia 219C LED, rated at 92+ CRI (Color Rendering Index) for the closest approximation to natural light you can currently get. It also allows for a higher current than its 219B predecessor, meaning it can more efficiently produce and hold its 100-lumen output. The Preon also comes with a programmable user interface, letting you pick from 6 configurations that make use of its 7 modes. An included NiMH AAA battery also gives the light a stable and rechargeable power source so you aren't wasting disposable batteries on your light (or harming it in the worst case).

While the Preon P1 MkIII marks the first steps of Prometheus and Foursevens, it's clear that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and shows the clear influence and experience of both its creators.

I’d like to see how it stacks up to the competition. It is a new product, even though it’s backed by Foursevens. Perhaps it’ll be included in the nex top 10 review?
they are currently sold out
No keychain possibility is a no go for me.
