The perfect EDC flashlight that your friends probably won’t steal.
We got an early release model from Olight to test their new i3T EOS Donut flashlight. Honestly, we would have liked to try any of the other Olight colors of the i3T EOS flashlight, but we got the new Donut color and the good news is, I know none of my friends are going to steal this flashlight from me, but they probably should. . It’s a great EDC flashlight and this one in particular will make a mom incredibly happy on Mother’s Day.
The Olight i3t EOS Donut is a slim tail-switch flashlight powered by a single AAA battery with a maximum output of 180 lumens and two basic modes. Bright and not so bright. The tail switch works extremely well and there is no chance this light will ever turn on in your pocket. The anodized aluminum body feels great in your hands and is extremely small and light and always ready when you need it. The flashlight is waterproof allowing you to use it in all types of weather and with the dual direction pocket clip you can wear this flashlight clipped to your pocket, on your lapel, on the brim of your hat or even on your backpack strap. . It’s such a simple light and heck if you love pink it’s the best light in the world. Of course, you can order the i3T EOS in 16 different colors, including a Titanium Damascus and a Black Carbon Fiber.
The i3T Dual Direction Pocket Clip is truly outstanding with this light and I can’t say enough about how great it is. I had this light on a recent trip and being able to quickly drop it onto my hat brim and not have to worry about breaking my headlamp saved me a lot of time. EDC lights are only as good as your will to carry them and the Olight Donut is about the width of a AA battery and a little more. It’s 3.5 inches, which fits nicely in my hand and isn’t as imposing or heavy, so it feels good next to my keys in my front pocket. On a solid battery, with a max output of 180 lumens in mode 1, it’ll run for about 21 minutes straight, but honestly, it probably won’t. In mode 2 it will run at 5 lumens and last for about 16 hours which is enough to give you some light at about 12 meters, enough to make your way through a forest or around a dark building or out of a building without energy.
The beauty of this light is that they are extremely well priced depending on which model you get and if you like the color of the donut you can get your hands on one by ordering quickly. I’m all for having the best in EDC tools and I have some extremely good flashlights in my arsenal of lights, but the true test of an EDC tool is whether you’ll carry it with you every day and the i3T EOS is a light. I’m pretty sure it will more times than not in my pocket and on my body when I need it.
