    Default Holiday Mini and Preon MKIII Pre-Order Sale

















    We tried our best to get all of our new stock in for the holiday season. Looks like that isn't going to work out, so we are running a pre-order at a deep discount.


    All pre-order items are marked 20% OFF and will ship (fingers crossed) in January.


    Click the link below to open the Pre-Order Store page on darksucks.com and be sure to read the instructions for pre-ordering carefully!








    Delta Timascus Auction is LIVE




    We're auctioning off another Delta Timascus one-off flashlight for all you collectors out there. As many of you know, the Delta is the newest Prometheus Lights flashlight. It features all the power of the Alpha in a smaller body.


    This auction light comes with our brand new solid metal tailcap button, but if you win the auction you can always request a standard rubber button.


    Good luck! Bid well.

    Do the solid copper Preons have a raw finish?

    Yes they are raw. They ship in a sealed bag to prevent patina from forming. I use the Sunshine cloth to bring it back my P1 copper to that bright raw look every now and then. You can polish them as any other copper items.

    New Quarks are just a mist in the air if I understand properly.

    I'm pretty sure the new Quarks won't be offered until sometime in 2019. -#5

    I took a break from the Bamboo Fountain Pen Kickstarter project a little ways back to put blade to backyard bamboo and try my hand at making a real bamboo fountain pen. The old way fashioned way.


    Fortunately my backyard is filled with bamboo and the Internet is filled with videos of brave pioneers who came before. It is while standing upon their shoulders that I humbly submit my own chronicled attempt at this writing tool of yesteryear.


    Give a shot on your own. It's surprisingly simple and thoroughly satisfying.

    @ J C S - Thanks for your support!

    Quarks are coming in March-ish. Probably (definitely) certainly (maybe) launching via Kickstarter.

    You guys should follow Foursevens on instagram or FB so you don't miss all the teaser pics! Relaunching the 2xAA and a new 16650 model...can also take 2x(R)CR123 for those of you who prefer lights that potentially explode during

    Both lights will have the hexagon die Nichia 319A with 80+ CRI, 5000K and 650 lumens for the 16650 model and 450 for the 2xAA...that's a 25% increase in output for the 2xAA!

    Also, all Foursevens lights are henceforth shipping with rechargeable batteries included. Finally, all Foursevens lights will have the exact same UI going forward, so you can pick up any Foursevens light and know how to use it without being sent to a week long training seminar.

    Just a quick “Thank You” to Jason. I had placed a couple pre-orders and found out that my PayPal Credit card(that I used to place the order) and PayPal Credit account are not linked. I have to scramble to make arrangements, but received a personal email response to confirm my Preorders would be processed. I really enjoy doing business with Prometheus Lights/Dark Sucks/Four Sevens-everything about the business is professional and yet personal too. I Love my Prometheus Flashlights, Beads and expect to love my soon to arrive new Four Sevens Lights. Thanks to Jason, who is truly “one of us” and treats people with honesty and integrity.

    But I was looking forward to the seminar!

    No, seriously, does this mean that the Quarks will just be larger versions of the Mini? I was hoping that they would get an interface more like the Icarus. Not saying the Mini interface is not cool, but I like to be able to have the most possible customization options.

    Some day they might get a fully programmable interface, but it will require writing totally new software since the MCU and hardware are totally different than the Icarus. Quarks will be newer versions of the old Quarks

    Does Sold Out mean that pre-orders are still available but none are in stock?

    When I go to the linked page and click on a product, I can not add to cart.
    If I go to the link, then go to the pre-order store, then click on a product I can add to cart.

    From darksucks.com -


    1. Please ignore the "sold out" signs below. This means they are not stocked in inventory, but the pre-order is still open.
    2. Peruse the links below for the standard product pages and relevant information. We have not duplicated this information on the pre-order page.
    3. When you are ready to order, click the link above. You MUST use the link above.
    4. The link will open a new window to BackerKit. We have used BackerKit for fulfilling all 6 of our Kickstarter projects, so we trust it and know it works.
    5. You cannot log back into BackerKit and change your pre-order once you place it; however, you can come back and place a separate pre-order as long as it's still open.
    6. You'll need to leave your CC info, but you won't get charged until closer to the shipping date.

    Is there any update on when Backerkit will charge for the pre-orders ("Your credit card will be charged when the project decides to collect funds." was mentioned in my pre-order confirmation email)?
    I would also like to get an idea on when the flashlights may ship.
    Thanks.
