Operating your Preon 2 is simple. Make sure its batteries are inserted with the positive side (+) toward the head. Ensure the tailcap is tightened. To turn the Preon on, tighten the bezel (the ‘head’ of the light) fully down and click the tailcap 'on'.

Selecting Regular Outputs

To select a different level of constant output, click the Preon 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 Preon is turned off for 2 seconds or longer, it will revert back to Low.

Selecting Special Outputs

The Preon has 4 special output modes: Strobe, S.O.S., Beacon (Hi), and Beacon (Lo). 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 (Lo) mode, the output reverts back to Regular Low. Both Beacon modes will first flash 5 times and then once every 10 seconds.

Soft Press

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 you want.
