NEW USER INTERFACE (UI):
All Preons feature a new interface with six selectable configuration modes so you can customize your MINI specifically to your needs. Other features include the following:
What's up with burst mode? : This feature is ported over from the flagship Prometheus Alpha Flashlights. It allows you to access maximum output at any time without scrolling through other modes. This also allows you to have maximum output when you need it, but conserve battery by using the standard high mode (60% output) for normal use.
Burst mode is activated with two very fast off/on cycles (.2 second spacing) and does not have mode memory. Burst is active for 30 seconds and then ramps down to high mode over the following 30 seconds. This is to prevent the light from overheating and damaging the LED, electronics, or battery wrapper.
All Minis are initially set to Configuration 3 with Medium/High/Burst. They can be reconfigured as often as you'd like.
Entering Configuration Mode:
Just power cycle (on/off) the light 10 times in <3 seconds to enter configuration mode. The light will blink a number of times corresponding to the current configuration. One power cycle will change to the next configuration. Leave the light off for 5 seconds to save the current configuration to memory.
When entering configuration mode you should use a "press" and not a "click."
A button press will activate the light in momentary mode. A click is audible and latches the light in the "on" state. Basically clicking is too slow and pressing allows faster on/off cycling :)
Here are the possible configurations:
ALKALINE BATTERY WARNING
Alkaline battery damage is the #1 cause of failed lights. Alkaline battery damage IS NOT covered under warranty.
Alkaline batteries will power the Preon, but we strongly discourage their use. Alkaline batteries leak and/or produce corrosive gas during use. This will destroy your flashlight. Every Preon ships with an included rechargeable NiMh battery. You can purchase additional batteries and chargers through this link.
