Olight I1R II EOS Keychain Twist Flashlight - Chip Scale LED - 150 Lumens - Uses Built-In Battery Pack - Black or Desert Tan
Olight I1R 2 EOS Keychain Light
Upgraded LED offers 115% Brightness in a Compact Design
The I1R 2 EOS is a remake of Olight's beloved I1R, taking keychain lights to an all new level. This ultra-compact light is just .58" wide, no bigger than your pinky finger and just under 1.75" long. Weighing just under half an ounce, this light is virtually weightless on your keychain.
Using an all-new 5-sided glowing CSP LED, the i1R 2 reaches new heights with a 150 lumen turbo (or a 5 lumen low mode for day-to-day tasks).
No Fuss Design, Simple UI
Easily turn on/off your light and swap between modes with the simple head twist function. No need to remove your battery to charge- use the integrated micro-USB port to easily charge the 70mAh li-ion battery in just 75 minutes!

Olight is more and more focused on rechargeability in its products, and has eliminated earlier offerings like the Baton S2 with magnetic base for the Baton S2R and now Baton 3, rechargeable-only. There is a problem with that, in that they eliminate using Lithium Iron primary cells and similar technology that have shelf life over 10 years and operate well below freezing temperatures.
This keychain torch is adequately small for the role, and its two brightness levels are a good fit as well. Its Micro USB rechargeable battery capacity is likely adequate for the role, but the issue will be how long does this Lithium Ion battery retain charge for months. A keychain light might go several months before called upon to work.
Only use will determine if if it does.
It's for this reason that I'd prefer a single AAA light and using a Lithium Iron ("Ultimate") in this role. Olight made a miniature light that was a promotional version of their X9r Marauder. This used a tiny CR425 Lithium pin battery made for fishing bobbers. It was close to perfect for a keychain light.
My primary application is for a small light to hang on my hammock ridge line with an S-biner. In that role it does well given it is charged before heading out, and the trip is only a few days.
For a longer trip, there's always the cell phone recharger along to charge it.
Bottom line - Adequately small, reasonably priced, effective in use. The question is charge shelf life.
