Haikelite MT03 Pure Copper (?) Flashlight

Haikelite has a new pure copper MT03 on taobao, priced at 2580 yuan (USD 374)! Looks interesting.

Looks like Brass to me. Imagine how heavy it would be if it were copper. Still awesome.

If you copy the enlarged and highlighted word “纯铜” in the description and paste in google translate, it translates to pure copper.

That has to be brass, copper is never that gold unless it’s plated. Priced like it’s gold plated though isn’t it? lol

And for what it’s worth, brass is so close to the same weight as copper you’d not likely be able to tell a difference by the weight of that light. Wink

Tend to agree with Dale (I really, really hate that Wink ).

Have heard more than once that Chinese use same word for red copper (copper) and yellow copper (brass).

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

And most Chinese manufacturers prefer calling Beryllium Copper, Beryllium Bronze.

While not false, it can lead to confusions.

If I’m not mistaken an MT03 made of pure silver would be even better in terms of heat dissipation. Love

Well yes, but the difference would be small, and not really too useful.

The problem with making an entire light out of a high thermal conductive material is that the heat from the emitters is spread virtually instantly throughout the entire light, surrounding the Li-ion cells in this heat and making it difficult to actually hold.

Heating up your cells may not be the best of ideas…
