Funny how most Chinese manufacturers still don’t know the difference between brass and copper and sometimes they call it red copper or purple copper and just happens to be brass with forced patina… and it’s not like they don’t work with copper, they just don’t care.

Not too enthousiastic about the looks of the ToolTi with brass piece either, the original looks better, more hard-core titanium or however you would say that. I do agree with the decision to use brass instead of copper, brass is stronger, it makes for a structurally more robust flashlight, and the thermal conductivity is plenty.

I have always had good experiences using C14500 Tellurium Copper. It machines fairly easy without gummimg up like pure copper.
It’s harder than pure copper, I think its close to brass. Depends on the alloy of brass I guess.
It machines similar to soft aluminum to me and still has good thermal conductivity. It’s still a soft metal though, just better than pure copper.

I like my Tool AA Ti, and I agree that it needs a better heat transfer path. But that really looks like an afterthought. Perhaps because it is? Copper or not, it looks really out of place.

This.

Call me crazy but I can’t stand the look of it. The “gold” color whatever they used looks tacky to me.

Just seen that Martin M4DM4X has posted a great code for the new Copper Tool AA 2.0 from Nealsgadgets.

 

Are there any codes available for this new revision of the TI Titanium Tool from Banggood or AliExpress?

Preferably AE the official Lumintop shop has choice of emitter tints and can supply with cell.

 

Many thanks!

Got my ti tool yesterday v2 with brass bit. I’m pretty blown away with how nice it is. Glad I’ve got two ally ones to mess about with modding.

Gentlemen. Maybe I am wrong. And I repeat the wrong message. In that case I apologize.

AFAIK there IS NO word for brass in Chinese. At the most it is called yellow copper
And why stating the obvious if everyone can see on the picture that it is yellow.
So what you know to be brass is most of the time just called copper.

Maybe one of you may feel the urge to add a new word to the Chinese language. Be my guest.
And while you’re at it, do bring them on speed regarding beads, bulbs and files. Have fun.

they mean Yellow Copper (brass)

To the Chinese, as the Dutch, brass is yellow Copper, and copper is Red Copper, but I agree Chinese flashlights often dont specify, and just say “copper” for brass.

“Geel koper” (yellow copper) is a bit oldfashioned, more usual is the word “messing”.

I’ve received today “copper” pill for ToolAA and scratched the bottom. It is brass.

Thx for language explenation guys, now i’m sure that yellow copper is not possible.

Is the copper yellow (brass) or red copper ?

If so, why are they using different materials?

from the photo, the AA Copper tool looks like copper not brass
I hope someone (maybe you?) will confirm, when they receive the light

copper = red copper = purple copper

brass = yellow copper = “messing”

So they do know the difference but are calling the New Ti with copper, which it isnt.
But when they are making a New AA copper, they make it of real copper, which sounds a little crazy.

Would it be a cost thing?

Well, i’ll see when they both arrive.

A group I’m on in Facebook someone’s got two coppers if I knew how to post pics on here I could pop one up.

The ‘Full’ Copper Tool is indeed actual (Raw/Red) Copper. No coating, will patina.
The Ti Tool (new edition) has a brass (yellow) section in the head.


 

Not sure if the outer ring is actually Brass or a plated surface as on their clips and Lumintop Prince Mini...

Does the copper head split in two parts like the ti version?

Hi all after speaking with someone from lumintop it turns out it’s not brass. It is a coated red copper piece. Looking closely at mine where the bunny is etched in there’s definitely a hint of copper showing through. Bit hard to capture on a photo as it’s so shiny.

Hard to believe it’s copper with a coating tbh. Looks verry much like brass.
If so maybe someone is willing to polish the coating off.

The link you provided is not working for me PBP, it wants to know my Google-account.
Which I (obviously) don’t have.

probably a sharing issue, you need to set the photo share rights in your Google photo’s
Sometimes BLF just cuts the link somewhere due to the length, if you insert the Link using the insert link button it might work
