Prometheus’s Beta QRv3 Flashlight Returns with Upgraded Brilliance

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 10 years since we reviewed Prometheus’s premiere AAA flashlight, but this year, the Beta shines bright once again. Now on its third iteration since its original Kickstarter launch in 2013, it keeps its key functionality—namely, its twisty activation and quick-release tail system—while tweaking its design and upgrading its output to modern enthusiast sensibilities.

The QRv3’s main titanium body design maintains the signature Prometheus ridges, with the option for a classic or “ICE” design for the head, the latter of which includes a more aggressive knurled pattern. And speaking of the head, it now contains the latest and greatest Nichia 519A 9080 (4000K) LED with 90+ CRI, an incredibly pleasing tint that still has enough power for up to 90 lumens in up to three modes and is powered by an included AAA NiMH rechargeable battery. Last but not least, the Beta QRv3’s quick-release tail not only comes with your option for a clip instead of a split ring attachment but the current version also got re-tooled to be usable as a light work 1/4” bit driver.

The new Beta is on a monthly drop schedule and goes fast, so sign up for notifications and keep an eye on the Prometheus site for updates regarding releases to have the chance to grab your own.
