That works, but it is still difficult to see, the material below the lumintop engraving might be real copper

It works for me.

Looks like copper indeed, which is a pity because I like brass better for this purpose (structurally stronger, while still having good heat conductance). I ordered one (from Fasttech, they are cheap, and you can use code BLF for a bit less even) but not sure I would have done that if I knew it was copper.

Well, it’s not that you did not know, since they kept advertising with copper head Cool

does that work?

Works for me (L.J.Gibbs).

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Looks like copper indeed, strange. Is the coating silver? Looked like brass in earlier pictures.

The sun was quite bright and I had used a bit of metal polish to make the copper come out more which I think has lightened the “brass”.

I paid 46 doll hairs posted to the uk. Your mileage may vary.

the above photo looks like nickel plated brass

different than the advertised info:

gold plated:

.

(yellow) “copper” (aka brass, aka “messing”):

Im not sure which version(s) are actually shipping..
maybe more people will post photos of the actual light they receive.

Do all Tool AA Ti use XP-L2 LED (I understand specs indicate XPL-HD, but actual based on some reports appear to be XP-L2) , or are there variants with XPL-HD or Nichia 219C?

I’ve bought some with Nichia before. Not sure if they’re still available anywhere.

Edit: I was being absent minded. I was thinking of the aluminum Tool AA, not the Ti version.

They have a 219C version as well.

Another interesting thing is that Lumintop assured me it is real-RED copper (just as the complete new copper Tool) with a gold colored paint coating on it to match the color of the clip.
