    I am really interested in the 1xAAA version this light but am having a hard time finding the new Preon for sale anywhere.

    BTW, I can't see your images.

    Foursevens is currently owned by Jasin Hui of Prometheus lights. The Preon P1 is in stock on their page.

    I bought one of the double logo (Foursevens and Prometheus) Preons a while back. Very nice light. Everything about Prometheus screams quality.

    I used to hate my preon until i modded with my microstream tailcap button mod i learned from other forum members. Since then i have lost the rubber tailcap button. I now just use the preon without the button at all. I find its a little harder to switch on/off but no accidental activations any more. Still a big fan of this old light

    Does this mean you have converted your Preon to a twisty?

    They have all always been twistys.
    You could get them with the switch as an accessory or already on the light but they always still work as a Twisty.
    The current ones only come with the switch installed and is still a Twisty too if you want to use it that way.

    My preon is still tailcap switch. If you screw apart the tailcap you can remove the plastic button that was the cause for my constant accidental activations. I really liked it swapped out with the rubber microstream button but it eventually fell out. To activate button now i have to dig my finger in slightly but i prefer it to the original plastic button. I can try n send pics if yr still unsure. Let me know how u go indigo_wolf

    And it is also still a twisty right?
    If you press the switch to on then you can operate the light by twisting.

    Sorry, that seems like semantics. I understand that a clicky can operate as a twisty, but if the underlying clicky tail switch is defective, then it's a monkey dance, I don't wish upon anyone.

    Except that these lights were sold both/either way too.
    The switch was an option.
    So these were always a Twisty with an option to give them Clicky function as well.

    The current version is only sold as a Clicky but does still work the same as a Twisty.

    You say Preon ,I say Preon.
