 Ti Cu looks very nice.. are you happy with the thermal properties? Im loving my Cu Cu.. tempted to get a Ti Ti then I could lego a Ti Cu and a Cu Ti Too (why be normal?)... Wink should I get shiny or sandblasted?... hmmm
 

 

 

Thermal properties…head will get hot fast like on CuCu but the rest of the body won’t. Thermal regulation then adjust brightness (just a tad faster than on CuCu but negligeable in real life).

Why TiCu? Front and back end of the flashlight will survive much more torture without being damaged where Cu driver section will absorb massive heat and also regulate it via driver much better than “it’s not that hot” full Ti. And it’s not so heavy as full Cu.

thanks for your thoughts
I set my Cu Cu to 40C thermal limit
not too hot to Hold on Turbo Smile

really like the smooth, predictable, heat spread on the Cu Cu

you make good points about the Ti being less likely to dent than Cu.. a Ti bezel cant be bad.. but I dont drop my lights, they get babied.. and I dont use Turbo.. Im happy with a 400 lumen ceiling (78/150).. I do not keep the stock 150/150 ceiling setting in Simple Mode.

the only Turbo access is from off in Advanced, and Im usually in Simple, set to 12 stepped modes..

I know your use is different, and you like Turbo.. I dont like 4C lockout, so I set low ceilings instead.

fun lights, very versatile

When it comes to my copper lights, I always treat them with “kid gloves.” Very good about not dropping. I love the clean look of the fresh copper, but there’s also something nice about the mottled tarnished copper look. I cleaned up mine twice already and find this particular grade of copper tarnishes a little faster than my other long term owned copper light (an Olight i3e-Cu). The Astrolux A01 I have is coated, but I find that it develops some tarnish underneath.
