    Sorry to hear that. Perhaps there is a problem with this one - I have one and gave a friend one - neither copper has the issues that you mentioned. The copper should if anything seem the same or even brighter than the red.

    Thanks for the review (with runtimes). Wondering if you ever had a chance to test the silver or bronze versions with the higher output. Very curious about how the extra lumens effects runtime.

    Love the simplicity of this light, my wife has one in her purse. I've squirreled several of these lights, some as future gifts, some for personal use. I also tried a 10440 in one a couple of months ago. It ran much brighter and hotter for about 6 minutes, then it turned off. After that, it was dead. Nothing could revive it. Don't try this experiment unless you're willing to loose one.

    Also, Olight may be in the process of discontinuing this light. Only some of the colors are still available on Olight's website. Furthermore, the silver 120 lumens version is VERY difficult to find anymore. Hasn't been available on Amazon or Ebay for some time. I know where they are still available if someone wants to pm me.

    Though it puts out quite a bit of light, seems like the L3 LO8 does pretty poor on runtime, and the levels don't stick around for long (referencing selfbuilt's review). Money aside, I'd still take the i3e over the LO8.

    More than 3 years since I posted in this thread and I recently ordered a bunch of this light at 60% sale. Only available in black. While I still would wish the output could have been lower(half or so) for better runtime I think it's still a good choice to the keychain. A keychain light is mainly used for short time and it can be long time between the occasions, but for these occasions the light can be very valuable! Therefore I consider a lithium battery is the best choice and I will run it with Energizer L92.

    Same here - purchased my green I3E just about two years ago and went searching for a purple one as a gift. I got lucky and found some old shelf stock but super disappointed these seem to be no longer manufactured. Curiously they're on OLIGHT's product page but not listed in their store.

    I guess I was blessed to buy a couple of blacks on the secondary market a few months ago. Still have one in an unopened package.
