i've heard of people putting 10440s in the aluminium or copper versions. it can pump out around 300 lumens(with the cree). haven't seen any runtime figures for that high output though. It's important to note that while it CAN run 10440s, it's not designed to, so it could damage it after long periods. that said, i wouldn't risk it with the ti. besides the fact that even at this price it would be a shame to fry it, titanium is much less conductive than copper or aluminium, and i've hear 10440s run quite hot in the aluminium version. not sure if the brass section would outweigh this. and as you said, it might fry the switch too.

You can't run 10440s with Ti. You'll most definitely damage the light. The light overheat on high after roughly 13mins just using NiMH. Grade 5 Ti is horrible at dissipating the heat. You could prevent damage to the light by holding it. You'll know when to let it cool when it's uncomfortable to handle. It's pretty hot after 5mins. They should've made out of grade 2 ti. It'll dissipate heat better.
