While modern lights can be really powerful, they can also be really confusing (that’s why we wrote this beginner’s guide). Sometimes, the latest and greatest features seem like overkill, and what you really want is a light that’s small, bright, and easy to use. In that case, the new Olight i3E might be more up your alley. Olight took their EDC crowd favorite i3S model, shaved off about .38” in length, simplified the user interface to a single mode, and slashed the price in half with the i3E ("E" meaning economic). Its Philips Luxeon TX LED pushes 90 lumens through a TIR lens for a bright, smooth beam. It’s still powered by a single AAA battery, waterproof to IPX8 standard, and constructed from hard anodized aluminum. It makes a great candidate for a simpler EDC and an attractive option for a budget-friendly backup too. Find it in all its five colorways at the link below.
