Thread: #3 FOURSEVENS - New Preons P1 and P2!

    Post Re: #3 FOURSEVENS - New Preons P1 and P2!

    You can put it that way if you want. It was a bit disappointing to me that the newest and best Foursevens 1xAAA can't be used in keychain. The attachment point in the old Preon P1 is not good either and I had hoped that the new one had a solid place for a split ring at the end of the body. Not a thin tin add-on on the side, like in the previous model.

    Esko,

    Perhaps an Atom AO Titanium would be just the ticket for your need.

    Merry Christmas,

    The Preon 1 is just too big for carrying with my keys.

    I do have one ss A0 and three titanium ones (CPF Nichia editions). Actually four ti Atoms but one will be gifted this Christmas. One is attached to car keys.

    It is a nice light with advantages but with some disadvantages, too. For keychain, I was hoping for something else.

    Merry Christmas.

    It may not be practical to do, but I imagine it would be possible to put a hole in the stainless steel pocket clip that is very well secured, in order to attach it to a lanyard or keychain.
    I'd love to shed some light on that for you

    aaa light on a lanyard? wow. never heard of such idea before.
    yes pocket clip could have 2 holes for wrist strap attachment but that's more common with aa lights like sc52 or manker t01

    You're right, that would be a little awkward. The main idea was for a split ring through the hole in the clip, but I figured that also might be strange on a keychain, and someone might rather attach it another way.
    I'd love to shed some light on that for you

    I sure wish a reversible clip on the Preon 1 was an option.

    I often clip my Streamlight Microstream on my hat brim, rather than carrying a separate headlamp.

    I wonder if the Microstream reversible clip will fit the Preon 1?

    Other than not having a reversible clip for hat usage, I really like the looks and function of this light.

    I'll likely still buy one, even without the reversible clip.

    Great improvements. I've been using the original Preon 2 in my shirt pocket since they first came out, but never bought the Preon 1, because of the twisty operation.

    I also would be interested in a neutral white option, but I realize that drops the maximum lumen output.

    Near the end of the clip, are those brass P2 and stainless P1/P2, or are those titanium P1/P2?



    Good luck everyone at Show Show 2016!!

    They say titanium and copper, but it looks like brass to me. I wonder if it has the same coating as the Olight S1?

    Does anyone know if the old Preon flat tail caps will work on the new Preons to turn them into twistys?

    Gurdy-

    Short answer is no. I have owned both, and the new Preon has a slightly larger diameter at the tail end than the older Preon.

    Ha! Don't you think it would be cool with a flat tail cap Chance?? I have fallen deeply in love with my toxic green Preon P1 classic. They look so sweet with the flat tail cap and especially sweet with the dark sucks ti clip. This is the one light I have that I have a 2nd copy of because I would flip out if I lost it.

    I have been purposefully rough with this light. In my view if a light is fragile or I have to be overly careful it's not for me. This guy has been dropped, scraped, dragged,dinged, and generally knocked around a lot in a short amount of time. It's passed with flying colors and again that's why I ordered a 2nd one. This light is awesome. Thanks Foursevens! Now please make that flat tail cap for the new Preon.

    I have one of the original P1 lights with a clicky. I run a 10440 in it within reason as its considerably brighter with it. Has anyone tried running a 10440 in these new ones?

    Really disappointed theses don't have LMH as an option, I'll have to stick to the original preon for medical use.

    OK, 3 questions, Why not: 1) Moonlight/firefly mode? 2) Neutral or 219B? 3) 14500 compatibility? Just wondering. Still, can't resist the blue P1.

    1) No
    2) No
    3) No (at least officially, I'll let someone else try 1 x LiIon though, I use Eneloops. For sure 8.4V would kill it) BTW, you would need 10440, 14500 is AA size.

    VOLTAGE RANGE 0.9V-3V

    Whoopsie, yes, I meant 14400. The questions should have been prefaced with: Why not..? As I would prefer to have these features included in the design. But one takes what is offered or not in this case. BTW: 8.4V Li-ion?

    He's saying 2 10440s in a P2.
