Got mine today , it’s tiny , smaller than the jet beam jetu. The tint is nice & white. The included battery is shite. Now I’m getting spammed a few times a day by olight , time to hit the unsubscribe button me thinks.

Lol, spam is not the word 5 times a day!
I did /was going to post this, then I deleted it.
Now I love flashlights as much as the next flashaholic, but 5 emails a day from 1 brand….. – there was a film ‘how to lose friends and alienate people’ maybe Olight should change tact or their tagline will be ‘how to gain customers and lose them immediately’ Big Smile

I don’t think I’m getting hit that bad by them, I was for about 3 days but before and after that I don’t think it was even daily. Now Battery Junction on the other hand hits me at least 1-2 times a day.

I haven’t got hit once yet by them, well, at least not SPAM. The only emails I have received are to confirm my registration, to confirm my order, to tell me when the order was shipped, and one more yesterday to tell me it had been delivered. Party

My Olight i3e has a nice, cool-side-of-neutral tint. Compared to my Astrolux A01, it looks a bit cooler and makes the A01 tint look a bit green in comparison. My A01 is sporting a Nichia 219C. I have the original cell in the i3e right now, but I’ll replace it with a Energizer Ultimate Lithium probably in the next day or so. Or maybe a Eneloop Pro Black AAA. I’m hoping to see a nice boost in output. Right now, the hot spot is the same size as the A01 and to my untrained eye, it seems as bright. The A01 has a larger, brighter, and more defined corona, whereas the Olight i3e fades (nearly) smoothly from hot spot to a faint spill. But the A01 already has a Energizer Ultimate Lithium in it. Since it is made entirely of heavy copper, I’m surprised the i3e competes and especially with an inferior battery!

The threads of the i3e are anodized and seem nice and tight. They don’t have nearly as much play in them as the threads in my A01. I can turn the head of the Olight just a bit past off and never worry about it bumping on. Overall, the light appears to be well engineered and well made, as usual for Olight products (at least products I’ve used). I’m very happy with it, for $5. Cash

Well, that didn’t last long.

In addition to the one I got;  one of our Canadian members was able to get one of these lights in his Olight cart, but Olight wouldn't ship to Canada.  So we worked out a deal.  I did use this opportunity to compare tint between both - they were identical.

So been using this a lot the past few days and I had sent the link to a family member and everyone there is using this little light even though I have given them many flashlights.

The super small size, quality, everything is just easy with this.

I find myself wishing for another version with two aaa, still keeping it as small as possible. It would be smaller and maybe more fun than most other penlights.

Thanks for posting those photos, they look like what I see on mine.

Interesting that you measured within 2 lumens of mine.

The tint also looks like mine. Guess it’s the luck of the draw on what one gets.

SN.40952 checking in.

The light is cute, and that’s about it. I really wish it had a low mode and was able to tail stand. There is some green in the spill area, but not horrible, IMO.

It does. The smartphone camera cannot really capture what I saw. There’s quite a difference.

If you don’t mind losing the key/lanyard ring, you can cut off the nub that holds it to the back of the light, or put a small ring magnet around it, to get tail standing capability. I don’t know of any way to add modes to the driver. But you could change it to a linear/FET driver and use 10440, I guess.

If you don’t want to keep it, I’ll give you $5 for it! Innocent

I don’t really see any green in mine. Compared to my FW3A SST-20 4000K, my Olight I3E EOS is a ‘Creamy White’.

Still waiting for my light to be shipped. The German Olight store seems to be a bit slow.
