Review: Olight i3E EOS & Giveaway
Small, Affordable, Bright and Light. What more could you want from a AAA keychain light? The answer is not much. This light is by far the smallest and lightest AAA keychain light on the market today, and it’s not a slouch in the lumens department either. Below I’ll outline the technical specs of this great little light and compare it to a few of the popular AAA keychain lights out there in the EDC market today. Let’s see how it stacks up!
Let’s start with the i3’s stats. It runs off of a AAA battery, which is appealing to many people in the EDC market because of how readily available they are. A lot of people are of the mindset that your flashlight should be easy to buy batteries for. This isn’t always the case with lights that use proprietary rechargeable cells, 18650’s , 18630’s , CR123’s and other lithium ion options. It utilizes a twist operation which is very simple. Twist the head of the light down and the contacts make connection and turn the light on. It has a very nice high performance Philips LUXEON TX LED which has a lifespan of 60,000 hours paired with high quality PMMA TIR lens delivering a homogeneous beam maximum output of 90 lumens. The silver model will give you an extra 30 lumens for a 120 lumen output. It has IPX8 waterproof capabilities as well. It boasts a 45 min run time using a plain ol alkaline AAA, and an hour and ten minute run time using a lithium rechargeable battery. It’s 2.38” long and only .55” in diameter. At a mere .66 ounces, you won’t even notice it’s on your keychain. Compared to one of the market favorites , the Maratac AAA Copper light at 1.400 ounces, you can see the vast difference. Every bit counts on your keyring.
At a MAP of $9.99….this light does it all and doesn’t break the bank. It’s the perfect backup to your normal edc. Available in multiple colors. You’ll see on it on my keychain, along with a small knife and pry bar. Even if you forget your regular carry items, always have a small version as a backup. You’ll find you use them more then you realized. This light also makes a great, affordable present for the holidays. Never be caught without a light again!
