View Full Discussion Here are some pictures of the different models. Only the black aluminium uses a CREE led, the others have a Nichia led...
what is that black cased light? I really like the look of that
The black one is the regular aluminium Lumintop Tool AAA with a Cree XP-G2 R5 LED which delivers a 110 lumen max output.
With the tailcap switch you can simply cycle through the modes (M-L-H) by half pressing it.
How do you like it compares yo the massdrop exclusive one?
The Massdrop Brass one feels more exclusive with the premium materials, which gives the light a bit more weight to it. Besides the materials used, the most important difference would be the tailcap switch. Operation the Brass or Ti version is a bit different because you have to switch the light on and off every time you want to switch between modes. Personally I like the tailcap switch on the Copper and Aluminium version a bit more because I can switch between modes by half-press the button.
There are also some complaints about the tailcap switch on the Brass Massdrop version. So it's a personal preference what will fit your needs the best. For me that would be the Copper version.
how did you prevent a patina from forming on the brass?
At the moment I took this pictures, they all were pretty new out of the box ;-)
I don't know if you can prevent the patina all the way, but sure you can try by maintaining your gear and cleaning it with the proper cleaning products.
The fact that patina will appear is just a natural phenomenon which comes with this material.
Hey doctor, which tailcap are you preferring the most? I'm really liking the Ti tailcap w/capacitor because of its sleek looks + fact it's a button, but changing intensity requires multiple presses (no half-presses). The twisty is good for not having unintentional activations in the pocket and it looks as sleek as capacitor button, but it's very annoying for one handed use (which is 100% of my use). The best in practical use is the rubber button one because you can switch the mode with half presses and it's super easy for one handed use, but it's noisy and doesn't look as sleek as the former two, plus no standing on the tailcap and it also makes the torch longer.
I'm really partial to the capacitor button because of its looks and silent operation, but I want to hear from other torch nuts.
There all the same light.... But the black one is only about $15
