The ultra-compact preon collection is AAA battery powered and surprisingly bright. With a simple two-mode interface, the new preon gives you versatility without cluttering your flashlight with unneeded modes. Want more options? The new preon has five re-configurable user interfaces ranging from a single maximum-output mode to having all seven distinct modes ready for quick access. You can set the light to be as simple or as complex as you need it. The new preons are initially set to configuration 2 with high and low. They can be reconfigured as often as you'd like. Here are the possible configurations: Config. 1: High . Config. 2: High - low . Config. 3: High - strobe . Config. 4: Low - med - high - strobe . Config. 5: Low - med - high - strobe - sos - beacon (hi) - beacon (lo).

Update 10/12/16, the tail cap switch is beginning to go bad, really difficult to select between high and low power and I suspect I'll eventually not have that option at all. It's a shame as I've really grown to like this little light. I'd buy another but at this price point there are better options.
(Can you get an ultra strong spring replacement for the button?)
I cannot use this pretty little thing anywhere because it seems to turn on just by looking at it. I know if I put this in my pocket (where it belongs) or in my daypack it will be dead when I need it, so I don't.
It sits in a med-kit where the tail switch is carefully protected from accidentally being turned on & almost Never gets used.
Super bummed cause of cost & how wonderfully it is machined. Terrible tail switch protection & design.
Want a badass tiny edc light that's 1/4 the cost:

(ThorFire PF01)- I own 2 of these & 1 of the 2xAAA versions. Excellent, small, very bright, tough build, tail switch doesn't turn on way to easily.
In multiple senarios the clip had been good enough to grab onto my hat or clothing when I don't happen to have my headlight.
Everywhere I go they go, Every Day.
This leads to my only gripe: the configuration and brightness settings. It's picky but I stand by it. By default, the light is configured to switch between "low" and "high" brightness settings. The "low" brightness setting is barely visible if you're in a lighted room, and the "high" setting is max output, 200 lumens, which will drain the battery in 1 hour of use according to the manual.
The "medium" brightness setting is 90 lumens (can see it in a lit room) and the manual claims it will drain the battery in 3 hours, and this is the mode I prefer to keep the light in most of the time. But to get access to "medium" brightness, I had to reconfigure the light to a more complex configuration that has all 3 brightness settings and 1 (maybe 2 I don't remember) strobe functions in it.
I hate to drop a whole star for that, but to me the medium setting is the most practical. It bothers me that I have to introduce complexity (more modes to toggle through) to use it.
Don't let the length of that gripe throw you off. This is a well built, bright light in a perfect form factor for carrying every day. The extra modes, while potentially complex, are a nice feature over other similar lights like my old Stylus Pro.
UPDATE: Earlier today, I wrote this review saying I had never had the Preon accidentally turn on. Many reviewers referenced this being a common problem, and I hadn't experienced it in about 3 weeks of ownership.
Apparently the Preon heard me, and was worried about its reputation, because I just discovered it was turned on in my pocket, and had been for so long that the housing was hot to the touch. Please be aware that the tail cap is, in fact, a little sensitive.
Update 2: After about a year of ownership and daily carry, the Preon has started to change modes at random when I'm holding it. I think the batteries aren't 100% secure in the tube and disconnecting off and on. Changing or re-enclosing the batteries doesn't help the problem. At this point the light isn't reliable enough to be of use to me, and I'm going back to the Stylus Pro.
I have the first generation of the Preon 2, but this seems to be a better version.
1. First noticeable difference is the upgraded textured feel on the barrel of the pen light. The first generation had a slick surface which seemed slippery when trying to hold onto the light. This new version has grooves all along the barrel for a better grip.
2. Though I cannot confirm the true maximum output of lumens on thispenlight, the highest setting seems to be brighter than the original version. In contrast, I also have another penlight by the company THRUNITE. Model TI4. That penlight has a lot of great reviews, but unfortunately it does not compare when it comes to the maximum output of brightness. This new Preon 2 version Cool White version exceeds the brightnes of that penlight and the original Preon 2.
3. First negative noticeable difference is the clicker on/off feature. The design of the button is relatively the same to the original version. There have been many complaints on how easy the penlight can turn on if it's in your pocket and possibly draining the batteries. I've already had the penlight clipped on the inside pocket of my jeans, and while driving, the light had accidentally clicked on while moving around in my seat. This is always something to consider.
4. The $50 price point might seem pretty steep for some, but the performance of this compact light might outweigh the cost. Just don't lose it!
Overall, this penlight is a great addition for professionals and just EDC carry.
