You can't beat the Preon P1 features and single-AAA battery output, the smaller version of the Preon P2 pen light.
Staying true to the Preon styling, the ultra-compact Preon P1 surprisingly bright. Inspired by the FOURSEVENS MMR-X, it has five configurations to choose from. This gives you versatility for any application without cluttering your flashlight with unneeded modes. Configurations range from a single maximum-output mode to having all six distinct modes ready for quick access. You can set the light to be as simple or as complex as you need it. The default setting is on Configuration 2 (high and low).
The new Preon P1 comes with a clicky tailcap. Re-engineered to have less accidental activations by making it firmer to press, the travel to click it is shorter and the smooth edges of the button have been replaced with a much more angular edge, which limits access to the button until you're ready to use it. Use the clicky tailcap to momentarily turn your light on by partially pressing the button. Lock out the light (when throwing in a EDC kit, go-bag or suitcase) by slightly untwisting the head. It also features the improved stainless-steel pocket clip, which is simplified, streamlined and better for daily use.
Great things do come in small packages. FOURSEVEN's lights are backed by their 10 year, no-hassle warranty on everything but your batteries.
The new Preon P1 takes everything we loved about the original and made it better. The axial micro-cuts make it easy to grip, but leaves the light smooth enough for a clean pocket carry. The updated pocket clip removes one of our biggest frustrations with the Original Preon P1 and is much more substaintial, long lasting and usable. And, taking a commonly available AAA battery leaves us with a great, lightweight, incredibly light flashlight that is a fantastic option for everday carry (EDC)--especially at only 3.35" in length.

To change a configuration, quickly turn it on 10 times with a half press until you see a dim light. The light will then start flashing 1 time for "Configuration 1", 2 times for "Configuration 2" and so on. Once you see the number of flashes for the configuration number you want, turn the light off by doing a full click and the interface is now updated.
