    Preon from 4sevens.

    Non-shiny: check available in matte HAIII
    AAA size: check
    Push button (AKA clicky): check
    Clip fastened to body: check

    It is a GREAT light.

    The Preon is really great!

    I have the kit in black but I use the light mostly in 2xAAA configuration because the output is much higher.

    I have the black kit version as well.

    The reverse-clickie is a bit annoying since the switch cover tends to rotate in place. Also, not a fan of reverse-clickies. Mine is currently set up as a twist model with the 2AAA body in place. Takes a bit of practice, but I find I can turn the light on with one hand. And can even give it three quick twists one-handed to go into high-mode.

    Another Preon kit here as well (mine is blue though :)). I agree with Monocrom that the clicky is a little annoying. The light is machined well enough that I can manipulate it one handed even in a single cell configuration. Plus any light that small is probably going in a pocket and the risk of accidental activation is minimal with the twisty. The kit comes with everything including both clips.
