    I can hardly wait to get mine. Is the magnet removable? The Ramble Iotas can come out.

    I may have over stated the green tint. It is just the outside edge that looks green to me. The rest of the beam is very cool to me. I would prefer a nice neutral, warm or HCRI, but I would still by another one even if a special run is never done. But I do hope to see it in one of the above stated flavors.

    I've found all types of places to use this light with the magnet. The shelve supports in my room the curtain rod in the shower, even right next to me in bed I've attached it to my spoon on my coffee. The flow powder was still shining well enough to locate the light after 4hours. I'm really liking this light.

    Got my P0s today and I'm pretty impressed. Exactly the kind of light I was expecting and waiting for for years! Low low is very low and the nice even flood is perfect. As said before, it is TINY and even though I saw the size comparison to a AAA battery, it is much smaller once you see it in person! The bead blast is nice and the glow in the dark in the bezel is a nice touch. For the price this is a no brainer! FOURSEVENS knocked it out of the park with this one!

    EDIT: Not sure if the Thrunite Ti is correct with the quoted 60 lumen high as the 25 lumen high on the P0 (maybe due to the flood nature of the beam) seems to the eye just as bright as the Thrunite. I'll try to get comparison beamshots in an hour or so. Maybe David REALLY underspec'ed the high lumens on this as it does seem much brighter than 25 lumens.

    Wow, this should send those potential buyers that were sitting on the fence scurrying to 4 Sevens website to order. LOL

    Beacon of Light, how is the mode changing? One reviewer here said sometimes the Hi would come on first unexpectedly. Some sort of "mode bouncing" as he termed it.

    My personal experience is mode changing is very consistent.

    Flying Turtle,
    Can the magnet be removed if wanted to?

    I went ahead and ordered one. For the price, why not? That would be great if the magnet is removable, it would make it a whole lot more versatile to me. If not, it should at least be a good nightstand light.

    I noticed this at first but that was only when I didn't discern how hard to twist to turn it on. Once you know the threshold it is fine. But if you turn it on and it is in low if you tighten further it flashes on high intermittenly. Once it turns on low just don't further tighten. Problem solved.

    Are the threads fairly snug? Sounds like these will be great sellers...but I'm still hoping for a neutral version.

    I bet it won't be long before someone tries to get into the head.

    I don't expect the magnet to come out again, but it did once. It seems to be just press fit in its seat. I didn't see evidence of glue. Probably should have put a dab of superglue in there when I had a chance. I would be careful to not leave your magnet behind. Maybe to rock it off a real solid attachment instead of pulling straight, as I did when the magnet came out.

    After playing with this light in the dark a few hours I'm very pleased. Wouldn't call the tint green, except up real close and only on the edge, like Viper mentioned.

    I think you are so right. I would definitely do the same.

    On the other hand, there are a few here that will be happy now that they know it can be removed.

    How strong is the magnet? Is it neodymium?

    My UI was a bit wonky, but after a drop of Deoxit, it is working as it should. Also, after a light coating of fluorinated grease, threads are very smooth and one handed operation is no problem. I really like this pure flood light and can't stop playing with it.

    The magnets are very strong. I think they are.

    A few pictures. 1 with my Victorinox SD Alox, 1 with the Preon 1 and clicky, 1 with mini AA, 1 with Surefire L1. Lastly a beam shot not a good one but both the Preon 1 HCRI and the P0 are on low.

    Thanks Viper,
    Wow! The P0 is really small! The beam tint does not look that terrible. Waiting for mine to come Saturday.
    And also waiting for the NW and HCRI P0 limited runs

    Hey Pete, I tried to do something a little different glad you enjoyed it. I'm really liking this light. I just need neutral now and maybe a lower low. LOL.

    I have to ask anyone try a 10440? Just kidding!

    I would suspect that will happen Vinny with the cost of it much less than the 123s.
    But I dunno. 3V-4.2V vs. 1.5V-4.2V in this... It might not work for long, or at all.
    I won't be trying it on the only one I have coming. Are you planning on trying it?
    I too would like to know the results also.

    Edit: I am trying HCRI MiniAA with a AA-2 body when this one comes in with it.

    DO NOT RUN YOUR PREON 0 ON 10440!!! Here is why:





    The XPE is mounted directed onto the Driver and then the driver is pressed into the aluminum pill with no heat transfer to the body at all! So if we assume that the driver can handle the 4.2V Li-ion like the ITP A3 then LED will still burn in matters of seconds due to no heat relieve! :-)

    how easy is it to operate the light one-handed? Does the lack of knurling and smooth surfaces make it difficult to use?

    Looks like it uses even the same circuit as DQG.

    Looks like the same driver, but hope that they didn't do the same mistake like in DQG, and protect the driver. This was the weak point of DQG. Using eneloops, i had 2 fails from DQG and one of a friend of mine!
    If they did not protect the driver, they will have dozens of rma with all the classic consequences...

    Wow! Thanks for the disassembly vinhnguyen54. Is the glow powder glued to the same board as the LED? I hope not. I assume the LED is surface mounted which might make it tricky to swap out without desoldering the components on the other side of the board.
