Agreed, and even if you wanted copper, they’re no longer available unless someone organizes another batch to be made.

BTW: i did not apply any thermal paste when installing the copper heat sinks on my lights…

Should any be applied and where?

It is recommended to do so. Check about halfway down the first post. There’s a description and some pictures.

Sorry… long gone. If enough people express interest again, I may be able to organize another batch. We’d need another 15+ pieces of demand.

I know I`m tardy to the party but if there`s another list going for those interested I`d be down for 2.

And 1 here even if the shipping will be ridiculous. Has anyone tried to get the brass plate from Mateminco? Sorry if this has already been covered in the thread.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Ok, at this point I think there’s been at least 7 pieces requested. Maybe I need to check into doing another batch. Let me check on pricing again.

Hello!

I’m also interested in two.

Edit: I received my Mateminco and there was a heatsink already mounted. So i do not need it anymore.

Ok, just keep in mind that shipping from the US is like $13-14. Last time I did this, a member in the EU volunteered to receive a bulk shipment and split it out to reduce shipping costs. Maybe something like that can be arranged again.

I’m pretty sure I’ll do another batch so if anyone is interested and hasn’t spoken up yet, please do so now so I can order the correct amount.

I just checked with the place I ordered these from before and now the price is almost double. Tired I sent the design to a couple more places for quoting.

I am very interested in 1, just sent you a PM.

I’m continuing (possibly futile) attempts to at least partially work around the sudden drop from turbo. Tonight’s experience was a bit puzzling. Using a timer and a fully charged Shockli 5500 I clicked “full” turbo and waited. After 1 minute there was no apparent dimming. After 1:50 minutes I thought perhaps there had been slight dimming, though I wasn’t sure. I double clicked and there was full turbo again, but the difference was relatively small.

So, instead of a nearly immediate very noticeable drop there was (to the eye) a barely perceptible dimming after almost 2 minutes run. Why hadn’t the sudden drop occurred? Does using fully charged batteries affect the results? I’m assuming this was a fluke and I was just lucky.

I’ll continue with these attempts later.

Sorry, brightnorm… all of these were gone a long time ago. I have checked several times about buying more, but the manufacturing costs have increased considerably. To the point that each heatsink kit would probably cost $25 + shipping if not more. And that’s assuming an order quantity of 20 or so. If I could get them made for what I bought them previously, I’d gladly organize another batch.

Does the standard MF01S (not the MINI) have the issue of plastic vs copper plate?

It doesn’t not have this issue as it doesn’t have 7135 chips. The MF01 mini now comes with a brass plate so it no longer has the stepdown issue.

Vinh hasn’t seen those. Do you know who sells them?
