Not that exact tr20 thingy— that looks like a ginormous 26650 thrower. But borrow some of the millwork concept, thin fins 1/16(1.6mm) or so thick, spaced the same on a ~1.5+ inch head they couldnt be very deep maybe 3/16”, or so. Yeah, and do it in copper. There was an astrolux i remember seeing a few years back— sc ? Maybe a bit like that form factor wise but slightly deeper on the fin milling. But narrow 1/16” fins and spacing. This, as opposed to the e07 cad drawing with 3 fins at approx 3/16 – 1/4” thick.

I think this is what you’re looking for. That’s the best finning I’ve seen for a light of that size and it’s actually done in copper.

Ha. Thats perty. Lot of work went into making that i’d guess. Practically speaking yes. Aesthetically, it is a little blingy—too many angles and jags milled into the fins. Looks like the fins are a mm or so thick with about 3-4mm spaced apart, sacrificing alot of mass that way, seems the trade off is more air flow to each individual fin. I liked the trj20 spacing and more conservative look (edit: but like dale has mentioned —pointless having all those precious fins without the insides being right.) But i guess if you want copper for heat you really gotta show it off cause its gonna cost. I dont know that it will fit with their toned down look. I’d want to frame it and hang it on a wall somewhere. Is this in your collection or did you find a pic? It sure does seem to fit the bill—with the deeper fins, though. Kind of looks like they belly a bit in the middle i’d guess top+bottom ~3/32-1/8” up to 7/32-1/4” deep at the belly? That’d be awesome.

Pretty little light. Looks like jewelry. Most of my lights are used in the field so i dont really want to carry something that pretty —i’d be afraid to use it.

I like the design, any renderings how the front looks with 7 LEDs? Otherwise great idea, I would consider it.

BTW, aside from lung cancer and price is there a reason there are no flashlights made from conductivity-optimized beryllium copper alloys? They seem much superior to regulars ones and I would expect that some would take the cost and do the precautions and actually use it.

Looking at how massive it looks and that thick shelf, we are probably looking at 130+ grams of pure awesomeness.

Edit: Not a copper shelf. Was wrong, sorry.

135g? Not bad. Wouldn’t called that lightweight, but it’s not bad. Smile
The thought of 300g has really scared me for a moment.

BTW a copper variant would be interesting as well. Not for EDC, not for backpacking but there would be uses as well. Smile

It looks really nice except the rounded “triangle” cut where the button sits, IMO.

EDIT : the button area of the first proto was much better and the button could be recessed a bit more.

Very nice design! I like the styling better than the Emisar lights.

I like everything about it except that it uses small TIR’s. I like the TIR in my small EDC but for larger lights I’m a reflector fan. This flashlight with a quad reflector (even though it would add a few mm to the size and produce less light) would make it perfect.

LOVE IT!

What they said, above me… where do I pay?

Can I please Please PLEASE get one in RAW aluminum like that one pictured? Or bare, as machined, with clear anodizing? Please?

Love it right down to the purple lights in the switch! Big Smile

10mm shelf Thumbs Up Fins look great too. I guess 135g is the max you can pack in a light this small. Are you going to sell a clear anodized version? This looks much better than the black and champagne color. Also a copper version would be fantastic.

I can see that finned head section being copper, with bare anodized aluminum tube and tail cap and SS or Ti bezel. What an epic little light this would make!

Copper head with clear anodized aluminum tube would be perfect since the head is most important for thermal performance. Don’t mind the bezel being in copper though for more thermal mass.
