It won’t, SS doesn’t conduct heat well

If the group buy is in august and nw, I’m in, I love the look of that, as said, a stainless tail cap boot in the brass tail cap would make it perfect.

Looks very nice, I especially like the brass heatsink section. Seems well thought out and I was surprised at the relatively low price point. You’d probably move a few of these over on CPF at almost twice the price..

Any plans for an OP reflector?

It won’t, SS doesn’t conduct heat well

I gave a SS 503B to a friend about three months ago (Giggly-giggly “stainless, me wants! Shiney! Me give!!!”). Although I told him to best use an incandescent bulb for the time being, he insisted on an XM-L dropin (yes, with stomping feet and everything) – so, I got him a SF three-mode XM-L as well. Funny how grown-up men in their late 30s can be, sometimes.

surprisingly, the stainless torch does get hot within minutes, actually.

even more surprisingly, the dropin and emitter have both hold up quite well, so far.

Personally, I’d bore out the head as much as possible, then press in a copper sleeve with a conical bore; for a snug press-fit of the dropin.

Conclusion: While SS might not be the greatest choice for a heatsink, I guess it is still better than, let’s say, composite plastic.

PWM? If it becomes available with an OP reflector and high frequency PWM then I’d be in.

Apex ST6 uses 7135×6 driver. We have no tools to test the PWM for the moment, but 7135 driver is very common and stable.

Though the reflector is SMO, the beam is very nice, no rings around the hotspot.

Build quality is very nice too, surely worth 40+usd. So Group buy price 25usd worth every penny.:)
