About this 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).

Risks and challenges
Bringing a product from the drawing board to reality is not an easy task. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the funds available to create production ready samples to make sure manufacturing runs smoothly. All that remains is to raise enough money so that we can greenlight the factory and begin production. With that said, there are always unforeseen events that can happen, especially when dealing with a factory that’s half a world away. We wouldn’t bring this to Kickstarter if we weren’t completely confident that we could get our project delivered to backers on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
