I've always liked the color orange so this picture shouldn't surprise me, but it did.  I was quite surprised how many orange Olights I had.  Not pictured are a Perun2 and a Seeker2 in orange, the Seeker2 being my favorite from Olight. 

In the picture new are the Swivel, i3E EOS, i5R.  The iR2 and i3T are from previous orders.

The Swivel is pretty neat as a little work light.  It is quite bright with multiple settings.  It apparently has magnets in the base, but I haven't tried them out.  I have a full halogen work light that is brighter overall, but generates significant heat and obviously requires electrical power.  The Swivel I picked up to have a smaller, cooler, portable work light for doing work at electrical outlets and the like where maybe a different flashlight on the brim of a hat doesn't cut it.  So far I like it a lot.  The magnets make sense and I suspect the intent was to attach to the hood of a car for working on the engine. Haven't tried that out though.

The i3E EOS is fine but from reports by my wife and daughter who had black versions, the top screws itself off in a purse fairly readily from the jostling around.  I replaced their lights with iR2s and no issues at all as a keychain light that way.  I didn't buy this one specifically (don't worry, I understand I still "paid" for it), it was the free gift, otherwise I wouldn't own it as I wouldn't pay for an i3E at this point.

The i5R is now my favorite EDC Olight (Seeker2 is my favorite Olight overall but for my work isn't a suitable size to carry every day).  The rechargeable battery is very nice to have but the fact it will accept any similar sized battery should there be issues with the provided battery has lots of appeal to me.  I have a fair number of i5Ts scattered around the house and they're great too but this change is nice.  Of course I could always use a rechargeable in the i5Ts but I've found the ones I've tried don't last long before needing charging.  To be fair, I haven't owned i5Rs all that long so it remains to be seen how well those batteries perform.

I have never done anything flashlight/ torch related because of all the technical aspects  :ahhh multitools can be technical as well but not as much as anything electronic  :whistle:

Not saying I never will but I am just way more comfortable with multitools or regular tools :D
