Thanks. I doubt optics could be printed, usually injection moulded for the required smooth surfaces.

Maybe one could flame-polish it after printing? Smile

As to the build – superb, as always. Any data on how does the jacket extend turbo time?

LOL

Yeah I did a little run time test for five minutes with the bare brass then with the aluminium sleeve at 100% power (no step down timer)
The jacket gives around 30 seconds extra holding time here.

Then I did another run with both options and the step down timer set to 15 seconds to 50% which will be the normal operating setup for the light.

I ran the light in all four cases until the heat was too much to bear, maybe 65-75°C except in the last test with the timer set and the jacket on, the light was bearable to hold continuously.
I used a lesser capable Nitecore IMR 18350 for the tests and charged to full before each run.

Note the highly accurate temperature readings here Big Smile

So it does work somewhat but would be more effective if it had fins.
