Thread: Preon P1 MKIII

    One shouldn't expect a dramatic increase from 60 to 100 lumens. The runtime of 1 hr for Burst needs to be changed on the website.

    Brightness Levels (With 1xAAA NiMH battery)
    Low: 1 lumen, 45 hrs
    Medium: 15 lumens, 5 hrs
    High: 60 lumens, 1.2 hrs
    Max: 100 lumens, 1 hr-
    Burst: 100 lumens, 1 hr

    CG is right. Let's not forget everyone's eyes are also different. Without tools the easiest way to view it is by focusing on the brightness of the spill of the beam, and not the hotspot.

    Thanks for the info guys. I understand now. I guess initially I was looking for a greater difference between the two settings. But finally realized its there just a minor change.

    Iím still enjoying the light. Itís hard sometimes to not want crazy lumens. I carried a olight sr2 for quite some time. But I always seem to come back to a AAA light because of the ability they have to disappear in the pocket. And 100 lumens is more than enough light for every day use. But again.....itís hard not to crave the Big lumens of a larger light sometimes.

    Very nice. I had one of those when 4sevens first came out with them. Canít remember what happened to it. I almost ordered one but decided on the preon.

    Did the mode memory problem on the P1 MKIII ever get fixed?

I was surprised by just how well the P2 disappears into a pocket. I will probably buy one sometime, when either the silver or copper is on sale. (Black doesn't appeal to me, or I would have bought one at 20% off the other day. Why only black?...) Longer review with pictures to follow.

    Well the iinevitable finally happened and my P1 fell out of my pocket somewhere. I should have learned my lesson not to EDC it anymore after a bunch of close calls.

    Sorry, but until this flaw is fixed, I have no intention on buying another Preon.

    What did you not clip it correctly to yourself?
    I have NEVER had problems losing the light.

    I've lost lights. They've gotten snagged on my seatbelt . Found one, a preon1 I dropped in the fall on a gravel driveway that next spring. Changed the cell and worked fine, just a little dinged up.

    Yeah, that's probably what happened, I must have forgotten how to use these high tech, fancy pants clip doohickeys.

    It's the ONLY light I have had this much trouble with staying clipped to a pocket.

    Anyone know where you can find the copper one? Prometheus gave me the lovely answer of "we don't when our own items will ever be in stock"and I can't find it anywhere else.

    I haven't, I'd rather wait for them to be in stock vs getting someone's used light. Just wish there was any sort of ETA at all.

    Thanks for this. Grabbed one of each. These are great lights to scatter around the house. I have a black one already.
