Can I join with my Olight 3E EOS? I really like the simplicity of this light - much brighter than my Solitaire LED.

I'm impressed so far. Carried an LED Solitaire for years, but while buying my daughter an Olight I was tempted. Now my wife has the Solitaire! I much prefer the smaller size and the extra shine.

Any pics of yours?

Sweet! Is that the Brass or silver one? Can't see it on my work laptop and my phone is too small for my old eyes.

Its the silver one.

I just looked at my pics again and noticed I'd taken them with the head just about unscrewed, yet never noticed when taking or posting them  :facepalm: First time it's done that rolling around in the pouch.

My AAA Olight keeps unscrewing in my pocket. It’s happened multiple times now so it’s getting the boot which is a shame because I really like that light for my keychain. Thinking I will run the Thrunite for a while.

Yeah I think so. I probably did a full twist off instead of just past the off position

How long have you had it?  Is it just the o-ring wearing perhaps?

It is a weak point of the i3 range, it's noticeably worse on the silver variants,  most likely to do with the finish that seems to offer less friction.

Had it for a year I would say. It’s the copper version. I may try putting a new o-ring on but I’m already committed to switching it up to a new light. I have a bunch of aaa lights that need some pocket time anyways.

Yeah, I've got 4 i3 variants and none of them are great, one of the problems is when the light is off the o-ring is barely in contact thus making it ineffective when the light is off. If it was moved forward by 1.5 to 2mm it would solve the problem.

In any case, I use a 50:50 mix of beeswax and vaseline for my torches... seems to increase the torque required to take the head/cap off the torch noticeably while providing a goodly amount of friction reduction.
