Olight i3S EOS

Olight
i3s eos

 

One of the best light I've ever owned! I have been using this one for a few weeks, so it's not brand new as date of  this mini review.

There's really not much to say about Olight  i3s eos, current controlled driver, no PWM for any modes, hidden strobe, tiny, has a clip, easy to carry,  perfectly priced and has color options,  it is a perfect gift choice. I did every torture test to the driver and it did not fail, dropped a few times to the floor and nothing happened working like before. For everybody this light is a perfect EDC.
