FW3C/FW3T

Hi

I’m very happy with my fw3a but was wondering has anyone compared it with the fw3c’s run times on max? I mean they should be better than the fw3a rigth? but how much am I missing out on.

Also what is the point of fw3t? Is it the look and durability? From What I can google the heat conductor properties don’t reach alu or copper.

copper heats up faster as its normal since its a better heat conductor so its not like u can run turbo highest for any difference vs Alu so u dont miss much really.. and the Ti versions are most for looks only as its a terrible heat conductor..

Are there any real world comparisons (not perse FW3X) with the differences in output/temperature/stepdown on lights made from different materials ?

Have not seen anyone post any differences between the three different versions yet(aluminum, copper and titanium).

You would think the LED and driver would stay cool longer with a copper light so turbo could run longer compared to aluminum or titanium when the starting temp is room temp . A copper light will feel hot faster but do a better job of keeping components cool. Down side to copper being it will take a long time to cool off after use compared to aluminum and titanium.
