Sometimes the next big thing in EDC actually turns out to be tiny. In fact, Olight's new I1R EOS keychain light is their smallest to date at just an inch and a half long. But despite its impressively compact footprint, it offers innovative features and power you'd expect from a brand like Olight, all in a considered, easy-to-use design. If you've been looking for a powerful, no-frills EDC light on a budget, don't miss this one.

The I1R EOS takes a “less is more” approach to its design and operation, keeping things refreshingly simple for a modern flashlight. It just takes a simple twist to turn the light on. To make that easier, ribbed “knurling” provides ample grip along most of the IPX8 waterproof, anodized aluminum body of the light. Once on, the light starts at its 5-lumen Low mode. Twist further to reach its high mode, which puts out an impressive 130 lumens out to 54 meters. Low mode usage will get you about 7 hours of runtime, while the I3R runs on High for about 20 minutes. No extra modes to navigate here — just a practical, 2-stage interface with well-spaced brightnesses for general day-to-day use.

The I1R uses unconventional components for both the business end as well as its internals. A Philips LUXEON TX serves as its LED paired with TIR (total internal reflection) optics at the lens to provide a wide, smooth beam that's well-suited for general close range work you'd want out of a keychain light. For added convenience, the I1R's included Li-ion battery recharges via an included microUSB cable and integrated charging port built right into the body of the light.

With a barely-there weight of 0.42 ounces and an integrated lanyard attachment point, the I1R is especially easy to add to your EDC. It won't set you back too much, either, with a sticker price of about $20. Check it out and grab one for your own keychain at the link below.

Just got that little fella yesterday and I really dig it. I used to carry an Olight S10 Baton / I3E EOS but especially in the summer heat and for someone living in the city, the I1R is light and bright enough to not be a burden to carry.

1st paragraph (and link) - I think you mean I1R, not I3R.
