isnt brass a very bad heat conductor for a light this much lumens ?

If it is red brass, its thermal conductivity is as good as or very close to aluminum alloy.
Yellow brass is not as good, but it is not really bad.
Can’t tell Haikelite is using which type of brass.

cool i'll see you when you get there

Pictures shown in this thread are more reddish which looks more likely red brass, but pictures shown on aliexpress are very yellow.

A (ballpark) comparison of heat conductivity is:

(Yellow) Brass – Aluminum – Copper = 1 – 2 – 3 (translation: copper is >3x better conductor than brass)

EDIT:
Typically red brass consists of at least 85 percent copper.
Yellow brass typically has 60 percent or less copper makeup.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

That’s a very pretty light but when I bought my MT03 pop can the first thing that came to my mind wasn’t, now that this thing just fits in my jacket pocket how can I make it 4x heavier so it weighs more than my DX80. Wink

Love the look as a shelf queen but anything larger than an edc made out of lead-like material isn’t something I’d ever invest in.

That said, she sure is pretty though!
