a furry tale…

veröffentlicht am 10. January 2015 in Allgemein, Coupons und Codes von

n a cold winter day the postman brought me a wooden box:



a nice, tiny box



i opened it and found a light and some accessories


i got distracted for a short time – because the chippie must have small hands…


pretty angles and nicely cut


hardly to see where it opens


but i wated to tell the story of a little light i got for christmas:


i putted the box away and here is what it contained:

a Olight i7r – a charging dock with USB cable – a magnetic holder

a carabiner – a manual – two O-rings


together with the dock comes a sticky foil to fix it somewhere

(due to magnets in the light in any position)


the magnetic cap with a plastic pin


the cara“s-biner”



if you turn the middle bar you get why its name is “slidelock”



the Olight i7r EOS


hard to get the real color with a mobilephone…


perfect finish – but a bit slippery tough


since the surface is not only hard and scratch resistant but also electrically conductive there is only a second rear contact


this contact is spring loaded to connect the negative side from the battery to the lights body



when standing in the charging dock the middle (negative pin) opens this contact and the outer ring is positive via the body.

to enable charging the light has to ON  (why is it not mentioned in the manual??)


the head also have a soft knurling and some grooves for better grip


the clear lens is made from polycarbonate (should be scratch resistant)


inside the orange peel reflector you find the LED


Olight used a Cree XP-G2


the light connected to the mgnetic holder connected to the s-biner


unscrewing the head gives access to the battery


Olight delivers a own brand 10440 LiIon battery with 320mAh


there are two O-rings to achieve IPX-7


in the head there is also a spring loaded contact


in the back of the battery tube there is a PCB with the negative pin


since i am a curious man – i had to get the pill out



custom PCB


looks copper-ish


the plastic ring has to go also




and without the positive contact you can see the principle of this 2 mode driver

only contact to the spring -> LOW

full closed contacts the outer ring -> HIGH

the beam is quite floody with a wide angle


some wite walls i hunted…

a short video to show a little how it works

and i made pictures from the manual for you also

some numbers…

the official specs:

Product name:

Olight i7R Ti EOS EDC LED Flashlight





Emitter Brand


Emitter Type:



Titanium alloy





Battery Configurations:

1 x 3.7v AAA/10440 lithium battery(included)

Switch Type:


Switch Location:

body side

Impact Resistant

1.5 meters

Peak beam intensity:



120 lumens






IPX-7 Waterproof 1 meters




23.7g without battery


68mm x 14mm (length x body diameter)

i measured:

0.005 A on LOW and 3 Lux@1m (LiIon)

0.007 A on LOW and 3 Lux@1m (Alkaleak)

0.570 A on HIGH and 280 Lux@1m (LiIon)

0.950 A on HIGH and 260 Lux@1m (Alkaleak)

Amps on HIGH drop ~ 20% in 30 sec with pill only

(maybe due to the thermal safety sensor)



my conclusion:


when i got the light i was not happy with it…

the battery rattles when the light is OFF and the charger did not work!


sure – its a wonderful looking, very lightweight little light in a beautiful wooden(ish) box…

and everything you need is in there also…

and its bright with a simple UI (close for LOW and full close for HIGH)…


but – rattling batteries are a NO GO for me!
i gave away my nitecore sens because of that – and i love the acebeam L10 because it has some foam to prevent ratling…

but when i found out that the pin in the magnetic holder works as a tail switch to open the circuit (you can leave it ON)

and i figured out that the light has to be on to be carged my opinion turned 180°


all my cons are gone and i am happy now with my gift.


you can get yours here: link to banggood.com


maybe banggood likes my review and we get a Code…

stay tuned!
