The Story

About the Maker

The creation of California-based designer and fabricator, Jason Hui, Prometheus Lights has just launched its initial product: the Alpha flashlight. Born in Hong Kong and raised on a ranch in Montana, Hui is a paradox. He can drive on the wrong side of the road in the world’s most densely populated city, but he can also start a one-match campfire and rope from horseback. In his own words, “I’ve lived on both coasts. I like to understand both sides of an argument. I’m a machinist with an MBA.”

My Mission

My goal is simple: create the finest products on the planet...

I'm a product designer, strategist, and custom fabricator. I've spent years developing successful solutions for other people, but now I'm working on my own projects full time. I've designed everything from fly fishing equipment to machine shop tools. I've developed business strategies for start-ups and international companies. I've fabricated everything from classic hot-rods to special effects for film and television. I love making stuff and I just can't stop doing it!

My Videos

Love videos and/or hate reading!? Don't forget to check out my YouTube channel. You'll find things like machining videos, how to's, and various topics on shop tools and life. I also have a full catalog of past Kickstarter campaign and supporting videos. It's a great place to learn more about me and the products we manufacure.

My Blog

You will find lots of additional info about who I am and why I've decided to make custom flashlights full time. The blog is also the main focal point for updates and information ranging from current design problems, contests, polls, requests for help, minor victories, and total failures.

I cover topics on business, design, machining, LED technology and lot's of other "boring to some, fascinating to others" kind of stuff. Once you get there, please sign up for my mailing list! I don't send updates very often but you might get a chance to win a free light or something exciting like that.

In the Press

"This is my first review of an item that was submitted to me for review. After I linked to his site, Dark Sucks noticed an uptick in traffic and contacted me about reviewing his light. Excited to get this beast of a torch in my hand I said "Yes" and about a month later I had one in the mail. I had the light for about ten days and used it as my only light that entire time. I carried in jeans, shorts, and slacks. I used it in the workshop and outside at night. I recharged the battery and I stacked up against my Surefire G2X Pro." - Everyday Commentary


Welcome to "I'm No Expert," the podcast about everything and nothing. Jason Hui and Ben Hardy chew the fat and demonstrate (weekly) their lack of expertise on various topics. Good times!

Jason is the owner of Prometheus Lights and Ben is a freelance content marketer and writer. Fun fact, Jason and Ben were also college room mates, enhancing the quality of their witty repartee.

We recommend starting at Episode 9 (the podcast about podcasting) and then going back to Episode 1 :)
