Learn About Our Project:

 

The P1 is a bold, modular design that reduces the amount you carry by combining two commonly used items, a pen and flashlight, into a single functional and innovative package.

The body is grade 5 titanium, offering a modern, element resistant shell that houses the internal components. It comes in two finishes, polished or a matte, bead blast, each giving the P1 its own distinct appearance.

Though the flashlight is tiny, it pumps out an amazing amount of light for its size. At 130 lumens on high and 9 lumens on low it's the perfect day to day backup light.

 

 

Overall dimensions are a compact 4.65” (118mm) in length, with a diameter of 0.55” (14mm) and weight of 1.7 oz (48g). This makes the P1 a perfect fit for every day carry. 

 

 

The pen retracts using an intuitive, bolt action mechanism. Moving the bolt over presents the pen tip and a small red dot indicates the P1 is live and ready to write.

The P1 ships with a waterproof fine, black Lamy M22 rollerball insert. The refill is readily available and comes in different tip sizes as well as blue. The conical end of the pen has a long thread to ensure it securely holds the components in place. Thin grooves have been machined into the body to provide comfort and grip.

The water resistant flashlight module is fastened to the body with a combined magnet and twist lock feature, allowing it to be used both as a single piece or on its own.

 

The circuit is based around a CREE XP-G2 emitter, chosen for its small yet powerful specifications. There are two modes available by a twist interface. Turning the grippy, knurled bezel, step-cycles through a low, 9 lumen mode and up to a high 130 lumen mode.

 

A single 10180 battery powers the light. It is is fully removable and rechargeable via a micro USB port. The port is cleverly hidden beneath the head cap and recessed below the threads where it is protected from liquid or impact damage when not in use. The charging port has a small led that indicates a full charge by turning from red to green.

 

Extending the light’s functionality, the magnet can be attached to metal surfaces for hands-free operation. The optional quick release cap allows the light to be carried on a keychain.

 

If carrying the light only, the overall length is 1.95" (49.5mm) including the removable cap with a weight of 0.78 oz (22g).

New Samples, Stretch Goal Winner, and More
4 months ago – Tue, Mar 14, 2017 at 12:10:18 AM

Hello All,

Stretch Goal Winner - Extra Battery

We apologize for not announcing this sooner, but the landslide winner for the stretch goal was an extra free battery. So everyone will be receiving an extra battery!

New Sample Update - Pocket Clip mod

Thanks to your feedback, we've made a slight modification by adding small clip supports to the light head for a more secure clip and to ensure strength and durability overtime. This also allows you to put the clip in two positions if you prefer a deeper carry. 

Pen Cap

Here is a photo of the pen cap. Since just about everybody shared, everyone will be receiving the free pen cap! It does not show up in BackerKit but rest assured it will be included in your package.

Thank You! Preliminary Production Survey
4 months ago – Fri, Mar 03, 2017 at 08:21:35 PM

Thank You

Wow, we finished over 300% funded! All thanks to you. We couldn't have made it this far without your continued support and feedback. Thank you again for making this project possible.

Matte and/or Polish Finish Survey 

*Important Response Needed*

We're preparing to start production right away. In order for us to get a quick count of the number of pens and their finish, we ask that you please fill out the quick survey below as soon as possible. This will help us start production.

Please select the number of pens you plan on ordering under the corresponding finish you'd like. There will also be a question for refills and extra batteries if you plan on ordering extra. Keep in mind that you will have the option to add on more pens and other items once we send out the BackerKit survey.

TAKE THE SURVEY HERE

Stretch Goal Update

We understood your concern on the stretch goal and agree that an extra battery might be a better option instead of a usb cable (since they are not as common). We still want to make sure this as beneficial for everyone so we've also included a poll in the above survey so you guys will be able to vote on which you prefer. We will post an update with the results as soon as we can.

What's next?

In about two weeks, we will be sending out a BackerKit survey. This is the official survey where you will be filling out your information, making your finish selections and also purchase add ons if you'd like. The BackerKit survey invite will be sent to the email address you use with your Kickstarter account. Once these surveys go out, we'll post another update.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks again,

Alan and Justin
