After nearly a year of research and development, the first of the Maelstrom series is ready to storm the market!
The Maelstrom G5 follows 4Seven's design philosophy of "function over
form." From the start, the G5 was conceived with these basic goals:
Typical Output and Runtimes
The G5 features a unique 4-point switch engagement in the head of the
flashlight that lets you select the different outputs smoothly and
silently by simply loosening or tightening the head. Every quarter-turn
(approximately 90 degrees) of the head selects a different output. As
you loosen or tighten the head, you change modes as follows (in order of
Loosened to Tightened): Off, Auxiliary 2, Auxiliary 1, Secondary,
The G5's 7 total modes of output are split into 2 sets, Regular and
Special. The following are the modes in order from Auxiliary 2 to
Primary (Loosened to Tightened):
As you can see, switching between the modes in a set is very simple -
you just tighten or loosen the head to get to your desired mode.
Switching between sets is also simple. Fully tighten the head of the
flashlight so that you are in the Primary mode. Then, quickly loosen
and tighten the head (switching between Secondary and Primary) 4 times
to change to the alternative set of modes.
