Product Details

This concept came to me through observation, research, and conversation. I tried carrying other keychain lights. They were handy to have around, but always got ditched from my key ring...because when I need light I don't want it stuck to a wad of keys. Keychain lights just don't work like I need or want them to, so I came up with something that does.

I launched this light on Kickstarter back in 2012 and it blew up. At the time it was the most funded flashlight project on the platform. The Beta was also the first production flashlight dedicated to High CRI (Color Rendering Index) LEDs. I've been told the Beta was the light that made High CRI a mainstream feature in the flashlight world. I don't know if that's true, but part of our mission is to make High CRI the rule, not the exception. You deserve it.

I started with a "plunger style" quick release because I couln't afford the minimum order quantity for the spring I knew I wanted to use. Enter the QRv2 18 months later: our custom made canted coil spring is the heart of our QR (Quick Release) platform. It just plain works...because that's what it's designed to do. It's also what separates great from good...and all the QR lights that have tried to immitate.

Proprietary canted coil spring
Proprietary canted coil spring
My canted-coil-springs are custom manufactured specifically for the Beta-QRv2 by a US company who specializes in canted coil springs...literally the only product they make. Normally these are found in connectors for military, medical, and aerospace applications. This little beauty is the single most expensive component of the Beta-QRv2. These are manufactured from 302 Stainless Steel: drawn, coiled, cut to length, and the ends are laser welded together. The springs on your screen are about 10x the actual size. It's a ridiculous achievement in manufacturing to make something this tiny...and then weld it together so the diameter of every spring is accurate to within less than the thickness of a sheet of paper.
Color Matching LEDs
Color Matching LEDs
The Nichia 319A is a bit of semiconductor magic that turns the idea of "bad quality LED light" on its head. People hate LEDs for the same reason people used to hate fluorescent bulbs...the light they produce is absolutely horrible. Fluorescent lights have changed, and so have LEDs. It's time to stop living in the dark ages. Yes, that was a flashlight pun.

"TWISTY" INTERFACE AND OPERATION

The Beta lights have a "twisty" user interface – the light is controlled by twisting the head on or off. When the light it twisted clockwise (righty tighty) it will turn on. Unscrewing the head a small amount will turn it off.

MODES AND MEMORY

Your Beta flashlight may have one, two, or three modes. See product sticker for clarification. Beta lights have no mode memory. They will revert to the lowest setting after being off for several seconds. A quick off/on cycle (less than 1 second) changes modes.

  • Where it's Made
The ultimate QR (Quick Release)
Simply push to engage and pull to disengage. The mechanism is engineered to provide 10 lbs. of holding force. Combine this with the snag-free profile of the brass component and accidental disengagement is "virtually" impossible, and engagement is verified by a solid "click" every time! The spring is user-replaceable if that is ever required. 304 Stainless steel cold-forged split rings replace the original carbon steel "round" rings. Carbon steel has better spring tension, but the coating wears off and then they rust.
High CRI (Color Rendering Index)
A "High CRI" LED is designed specifically to work in concert with the human visual system, providing the maximum possible color accuracy when compared to sunlight. Daylight scores a perfect 100. Once you experience High-CRI you won't go back. Seeing colors is the human superpower. Using low CRI lights is like carrying a chunk of Kryptonite in your pocket.
