The Preon 2 by 4Sevens makes it possible to carry 120 lumens of light with you wherever you go. Larger and brighter than the Preon 1, the Preon 2 is a significant step up in brightness. Like its smaller version, clipped on a pocket, it is very easy to forget that you have it with you. In case you feel like taking a swim, intentionally or accidentally, the Preon 2 is waterproof to IPX-8 standards (10 meters for 30 minutes).
Powered by only two AAA batteries, the Preon 2 has three primary levels of output and three special modes of output, a feature not normally found on a flashlight of this size.
Low (3 lumens, 23 hours) Medium (26 lumens, 6 hours) High (120 lumens, 0.8 hours) Strobe (1.6 hours) Beacon (High) (8 hours) Beacon (Low) (40 hours) S.O.S. (2.4 hours)
The Preon 2 comes in many stylish colors, each hard-anodized on a high quality aircraft-grade aluminum body. It also comes with a removable pocket clip that can be taken off, or switched with a keychain/lanyard ring, a split keyring, along with two AAA batteries and a spare set of o-rings. The Preon 2's lens is made of optical-grade glass, ensuring good light transmission.
If you like carrying bright lights (who doesn't?) and want one of the smallest available, the Preon 2 is one to consider. It can easily become part of your every day carry gear, due to its smaller size and slender build. Purchase one and have bright flashlight with you wherever you go.

Operating your Preon 2 is simple. Make sure its batteries are inserted with the positive side (+) toward the head. Ensure that the tailcap is tightened. To turn the Preon 2 on, tighten the bezel (the "head" of the light) fully down and click the tailcap "on".
To select a different level of constant output, click the Preon 2 off and then on again within 1 second (you can also "soft press" - see description at end). This will select the next level of constant output in the following sequence:
Low » Medium » High
If the light is turned off for 2 seconds or longer, it will revert back to Low.
The Preon 2 has 4 special output modes: Strobe, S.O.S., Beacon (High), and Beacon (Low). To access these modes, quickly switch through two full "cycles" of the regular outputs, starting with Low. These two full cycles must be completed within 3 seconds:
Low » Medium » High » Low » Medium » High » Special Outputs
You can continue to cycle through the special outputs in the following sequence:
Strobe » S.O.S. » Beacon (High) » Beacon (Low)
After Beacon (Low) mode, the output reverts back to Regular Low. Both Beacon modes will first flash 5 times and then once every 10 seconds.
A soft press is just as it sounds - a soft press on the tailcap to momentarily turn the Preon 2 off. You won't need to "click" it fully off; you can simply soft press and release and the Preon 2 will change modes. This allows you to rapidly switch to the mode that you want.
