Review - 4Sevens Preon Flashlights are Awesome!

Well, I had just tested out some 4Sevens Flashlights. The lights that I'd like to review first are the Preon series of flashlights. It is impressive at how they pack so much light in such a small package.

A look at the Preon Series by 4Sevens.
I, like many of you, am constantly searching for a small, yet very bright flashlight, one that I can literally forget that I have with me, but that will light up the night like a car headlight. That's asking for a lot, I know, and I have yet to find such a light, but the Preon series of lights are the best that I have yet seen.

Well, what's the difference between the Preon 1 and the Preon 2?

The Preon 1 and Preon 2 lights both use AAA batteries. The Preon 1 holds 1 battery, while the Preon 2 holds 2. Because of this, the Preon 2 is over twice as bright, maxing out at 160 lumens, while the Preon 1 outputs 70 lumens. That's incredibly bright for flashlights of this size and I was even more amazed at how small these lights were.

The on/off switch on the Preon 1 consists of a twist bezel which you tighten to turn on and loosen to turn off. The modes are also changed by quickly loosening and tightening the bezel. The Preon 2 has a tailcap switch that you click to turn on.  There is no push to turn on like on some tactical flashlights, so the tailcap has to be fully depressed for the light to turn on. However, once the flashlight is on, the modes can be changed by lightly depressing the tailcap.

Both flashlights have the same output modes, but with different output intensities.

The Preon 1's modes are:
Low(1.8 lumens, 23 hours)
Medium(8.5 lumens, 6 hours)
High(70 lumens, 0.8 hours)
Strobe(1.6 hours)
Beacon (High)(8 hours)
Beacon (Low)(40 hours)
S.O.S.(2.4 hours)
The Preon 2's modes are:
Low(2.2 lumens, 23 hours)
Medium(22 lumens, 6 hours)
High(160 lumens, 0.8 hours)
Strobe(1.6 hours)
Beacon (High)(8 hours)
Beacon (Low)(40 hours)
S.O.S.(2.4 hours)


The pocket clips on these flashlights are removable and are very functional. With the light clipped to your pocket, you literally forget that it's there, for both the Preon 1 and Preon 2.

The Preon series of lights have aluminum bodies, which come in many colors (black, blue, red and yellow), all hardcoat anodized. There is also a run of Preon's called "Titanium", which have titanium bodies. I have not tested these out, but I'm sure that they are just as awesome as the aluminum-bodies ones.

Now, let's talk about a very important topic, weight. Weight determines whether you'll have your flashlight with you or whether it'll be sitting at home on your desk. The Preon lights have this area conquered, as in they are incredibly lightweight. The Preon 1 weighs in at only 0.9 oz with 1 AAA Alkaline battery. The Preon 2 weighs in at only 1.5 oz with 2 AAA Alkaline batteries. That's very light, and I'm sure that they would even weigh less with Lithium battery cells. Come on, 1.5 oz for a 160 lumen flashlight? It doesn't get much better than that.

Did I mention that these flashlights are both waterproof to 10 meters! This is just amazing, not that I swim with my flashlights, but if I ever did, I would be prepared.

So, what's not to like about these lights. They're high quality, reasonably priced, bright, small and waterproof. As of today, with current flashlight technologies, which are always changing, the Preon's are some of the best compact flashlights available. Get yours today!
