History of Foursevens Flashlights
Foursevens flashlights started out at an online shop that sold all different types of flashlights. After many reviews and seeing a countless number of flashlights they started their own flashlight brand. Foursevens LLC (4sevens) was founded in 2008. The founders were not satisfied with the products that were available in the high-performance LED flashlight field so they entered the market to establish a new norm. Their desire to make the best flashlight in the market has let to many technological innovations. Some of their many innovations includes their headlamp system that fits one of their smaller flashlights and the ability to expand lights with larger battery tubes. From using the newest and brightest LED technology, creating smarter user interfaces or making high end performance flashlights more affordable.
