Ordered on June 13; got an email a few days ago saying it was shipped but the tracking code was recognized only today. In fact it was posted today in spite of the email.

Tracking codes from China post (like mine) usually track fine. It takes about 2 weeks to arrive here.

I ordered it with XPL Hi 5000k emitters and the beam is well focused and a pleasant pattern. I enjoy the aux LEDs, and it is a pretty hefty light.

I’m really interested to see if a copper e07 can hold a higher sustained output than the aluminum version or not.

I have a TA lumen tube and I could test it, do you know of a posted graph for the aluminum version?

The only way to compare it accurately is to have both copper and aluminum versions with the same emitters and with thermal limit set to exactly the same. Unfortunately, I heard all Anduril lights have a rather random preset thermal limit. Maybe a ceiling bounce app would make it easier to compare thermal performance. This would be a very interesting test.

I was hoping the bezel would be copper as well. Like in the pics on their website. And kinda sucks they deleted the pocket clip.

So Flashaholics has a review posted on YouTube and we both have the same emitters XPL Hi V3 and he tested stepdown with the default thermal config. I don't know what cells he used. His flashlight stepped down around 15 seconds, mine steps down at around 28 seconds.

For those who have one, what are your impressions of the copper and copper-titanium E07?

I ended up not getting one, because I figured it would be really heavy and the discount wasn’t that big.

For the full copper version it is really heavy, I would never EDC this light. The machining on the flashlight is quite good, and the fins are chamfered nicely. They did a pretty good job at polishing. Holding it in your hands it does feel nicely balanced and well made.

I like the stainless steel bezel. If the light were to fall, it’d most likely fall on the bezel. Wouldn’t want the copper bezel to have a huge ding in it.

I can’t wait to feel how heavy this thing is. I like dense things.

My copper came in but it has an aluminum bezel. I thought it was all copper? I bought it thinking it was going to get all copper. I wouldn’t have bought it with the aluminum bezel Sad Displeased recipient.

Description states “FULL COPPER
I’d be a bit disappointed too.
I’d be on the horn to FF to get that copper bezel as shown in the photos.

One nice change from looking at your picture: They got rid of the deep slot for the clip in the body tube.

One of the criticisms of the aluminum E07 was that slot was too deep and resulted in an extremely thing battery tube at that point. With the thought that the tube might crack if you dropped the light (though I have not ready any posts from anyone saying it actually did break).

We paid for “full copper” not “mostly copper”. Especially at the price point.

Edit: i would have been pleasantly happy with a brass bezel instead of some crap bezel.

I emailed fireflies and they said the copper bezel was too soft to protect the light. Then they said the stainless steel bezel would be ( gold colored) whatever that means. Their going to be pissing of a lot of people. Not too happy with fireflies.

Yeah this was a shiesty move, they could have sent emails or replied here stating the issue and if we still wanted to go forward with the purchase or get a full refund!

At the very least … FF could put on a Ti bezel for everyone!
I had one in my cart until I read about, and saw no copper bezels.
I’ll save my $110 for something else.

Agreed as they already were making them. They saved a few bucks at the cost of losing sales and customers

I’m starting to think I should have just saved myself $50 and bought the aluminum version.

Now that I think about this. Unless its titanium, i seriously doubt aluminum or steel will “protect” a copper slug falling on the ground!

@fireflies

I’m sure they changed it to stainless steel not for the reason to save a few bucks. The cost difference is pennies. I’m sure they decided on stainless steel for the added protection from drops. However, they should have seeked the input from the community or at least informed us. The stainless steel bezel does look good on the copper though.

Jacky reached out. He has offered to provide a copper bezel for which I am thankful for and has restored my love for fireflies Smile
