    Default *** Beta Magnetic *** NEW for 2020

    MEET THE BETA MAGNETIC

    A Beta QRv2 with Automatic Magnetic Activation.

    It's not magic. It's science
    .

    2020 needed some good news. After four years on the drawing board and a year in development,
    I am thrilled to introduce you to the latest in the Beta line-up.

    I think you're going to love it.


    In addition to the magnetic activation, this thing pushes the absolute limits on CRI in an
    LED flashlight. I've included the Yuji 95+ Ultra High CRI LED, which delivers a whole new
    level of color rendering.

    So much more to say about this, but I'll let you head over to the product page and see
    more for yourself.

    Want it now?
    The Pre-Order is LIVE, but only for a week. Reserve yours for 25% OFF
    the future retail price.


    PLUS I've thrown in some sweet add-ons with deep discounts that you'll want to check out.
    Link below and don't forget to scroll down and click the big "Pre-Order Now" button (shown here).




    Thank you for your support!

    This is a pretty clever idea. A very quick release mechanism for the light. Automatically turn it on when it's released, because, you know..., you're going to use it. And an alternate way to turn it off or lock it out by untwisting the head. Any plans for releasing this in other metals? Brass in particular?
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    I'd be onboard with that. Copper and Titanium are on my wish list.

    It will work with the Flex arm no problem. The QR end has a magnet in it and the beta body end has switch that turns the light on when dettached from the QR. It stay on unless you twist the head off like the regular beta.
    THe head on the Mule also doesn't have the grooves like the beta classic.

    So is there a magnet in the light itself?

    Correct. The magnet is pressed into the male QR.

    Oh, one more question, does the "reflector cup" thingy glow in the dark?

    This run does not have GITD Led cup. The design opens up modding capabilities.

    That's great news! It's tempting to have that as a feature, but every light that has it has an obnoxious greenness around the beam.

    I think we may have misunderstood each other here. Is There a magnet inside the female half? More importantly, can the light be stuck to ferrous surfaces?

    It's only in the QR bass part. You can see in the picture.

    Yeah, I noticed it on the brass part, but they don't show the tail of the light, so I was not sure. That's disappointing.

    Stay tuned. The non magnetic feature of the tail is compatible with all future QR's .
    I too have wanted a QR insert that sticks the Beta to ferrous surfaces that's pocket friendly.
    I'll look into this and get back to You. This would be cool.

    Thanks for looking into it for me!

    Having a pocket clip with a magnetic QR cap would be great if the magnet didn't keep the light turned off.

    I have tried to activate the reed sensor in the Beta Magnetic light using the Magnet on the Beta Flex arm end, without any effect. I don't think that will stop a magnetic clip cap from working. Nice observation.

    Good evening,

    I just got my light in the mail. Is there anyway to activate the light with the quick disconnect still connected? Like if I use it as a keychain light and want to use it still connected, can I turn it on? Or do I have to disconnect?

    Thanks!

    Just got my light in today. First impressions, the Yuji LED is amazing and I'm really glad they went with a regular lens and white reflector cup, unlike the old Preon P0 or Zebralight's pure flood lights which used an aspheric to focus the light somewhat and had a glow in the dark reflector cup that tinted the beam. I do wish it had a low mode of 4 or 5 lumens though, maybe with a mode memory so you can pick which mode it'll turn on when disconnected from the QR.

    Interesting, is the magnet on the flex arm not that strong? I was able to active it with a couple of different magnets without even making contact with the light and the magnet.

    Probably the only way is to either get the keychain attachment for a regular Beta or remove the magnet. I could be wrong, so maybe wait for someone with a little more knowledge to chime in.

    If You use a QR that does not have a magnet, it will work by twist head for On/Off
