List of all Stainless steel or chrome light's.

I guess you can tell from the title I have a thing for shiny things and it's even better if it shoots forth a beam of light lol!!

I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of all the Stainless or chrome lights out there to make it easyer to find them.

I have a 93mm C3SS and a TrustFire F23 but I must have more shiny torches!!!!

Xeno SS flashlights are beautiful.

Agreed on the Xenos - if they were more affordable I'd own several.

 

Trustfire F22

Trustfire F25

Aurora SH-032

Aurora SH-033

Aurora SH-034

Aurora SH-035 (A C3 SS clone but not as good)

 

There are others.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I seemed to have overlooked this one "UltraFire WF-C6S"

Another I must have! 

Do you have one XRAYBoY? Does it have the donut hole like  in the pic?

The Xeno's are nice but I have no idea where to buy them or how expensive they are but a nice addition to the list anyway.

Thanks for all the comments. Keep 'em coming!

Me too, that looks beautiful.  How do you like it XRAYBoY?

Yes. I have it and has no donut in beam.

Not SS, is made of bronze (good for heat dissipation). It is very good for ECD, but the weight is felt too in the pocket.

Exactly. And in my opinion it looks very cheap. Nothing like SS at all. The same goes for UltraFire A6 Stainless Steel Cree (or Small Sun c72).

This one is sold on KD as Smallsun and they call the material "golden copper" whatever this might be. It's also cheaper there.

Hope you don't mind my two cents about the WF-C6S.

I have one of these too and I have to admit, I bought it for the bling factor. I think it's too heavy in relation to its size to serve as an edc but it really "shines" at more formal occasions.

Can confirm that it has no donut hole (at least my sample from DX).

Current draw in "high" from a fresh CR123A (open voltage 3.28V) is 1.12A and from a used one (ov 2.91V) 1.24A, The eye-metered brightness is about the same, so there seems to exist some proper regulation.

Draw in "low" is 0.12A from either battery and the brightness is very useful. Unfortunately it has visible PWM flicker when in movement.

Memory works well, coming back to the same mode used for >1s before you turned it off.

I believe the light is made of chrome plated brass, not bronze, but then I have no way to tell. My sample came with a pin point sized flaw in the plating and I wonder if that's the spot where the chrome will eventually start to come off, but apart from that it had no faults at all.

 

Despite the PWM issue and the strobe (which on the other hand may makes it an even better party light) I like it.

Regarding WF-C6S, as Don said, it is probably made of brass. Bronce is even more expensive than brass or stainless steel.

Yes, yes, probably brass.My fault.

Anyway notice that scratch easily and is quite heavy for its size.

Do not know if a drop can skip the silver coating...is more like a flashlight to keep in a showcase.Almost like a piece of jewelery

To me it looks more like plastic which was painted to make it look like metal: very cheap and unjewelery. But, well, a matter of taste as always.

I have seen the A6 http://www.priceangels.com/UltraFire_A6_Stainless_Steel_Cree_Q5-WC_120-Lumen_LED_Flashlight_1*10440_1*AAA__p11699.html and it has a very nice and smooth mirror chrome plating. Much much nicer than a chrome plated plastic and way better than the pictures look by far and has some heft to it too! But yes all is a matter of taste Wink

The link I posted has the A6 for less than 13 bucks. Best price I found on that light. Has anyone bought anything from them?
