1. 57
2. M3XS-UT ( only one)
3. by default - M3XS-UT
4. Gearbest
5. Blew me away at first. Everyone wants one when they see it. Just wish the tint wasn't so green, but it doesn't impact when used real world. 
6. Family forum so I have to be careful. I have seen both blue and stainless accents. Both equally appealing. Recently found a new fondness for lights of this size with available short tubes. The S1 moved way up on my list of "wants". Black ano was nice, now copper and titanium (wipes drool from right corner of my mouth). 
7. If/when I get one, it will speak for itself. 
8. Personnel opinion - Olight seems to be innovative in design and appearance. This will keep me interested in your offerings. I just wish the offerings were more in my price range so I can have more "O's" in my collection.

6. What impression does S1 Copper have on you? love copper, love patina and love the S1 already
7. Would you like to suggest S1 Copper to your friend? Why? unique beautiful, well priced and near perfect edc flashlight
8. What is your suggestion for Olight brand in general? for the titanium series, i would prefer a satin or brushed finish as oppose to the beadblast, as that tends to rub off over time. purely for looks would be nice if the bezels can be changed to different material or color. the lanyard hole can be better, keyrings can’t be extended parallel to the light. utilize the benefits of the imr batteries similar to nitecore which allows powers of up to 900+ lumens with the same led and battery config. lastly i really like the AAA size, but find the i3s lacking compared to the S line.

1. About 40
2. T10, i3, T15
3. My old T10
4. Purchases from Amazon and batteryjunction
5. I’ve thought them well built, simple, but useful
6. The color is very eye catching in an arena full of black and gray anodized lights.
7. That’s hard to say. I would rather handle a light myself first before making any recommendations. But, since there have been numerous reviews of the other S1 iterations, I’m sure this would be a great little light.
8. Continue to produce quality lights and don’t cut corners – consumers notice, and loyalties change as a result. I would love to see a high output 18350 light from Olight – that’s something I think many would be interested in.

I’m not entering but this may be the kind of feedback you ask for :

I’m not buying any Olight (or sister company 4sevens) anymore because of the possibility/risk of finding awfull greenish led tints inside, i really think you are by large the worst offender in this domain among the big players (i’ll add that i’ve had better tint with dirt cheap gearbest etc lights than Olight/4sevens).
