    Default Guess my weight!?

    I could probably google this, but I think it's more fun to hear from the experts here. Which of Mac's lights weigh the most/least?

    If I had to place them in the following order - heaviest to lightest - my guess would be:

    1. Brass
    2. Copper
    3. Ti
    4. Aluminum

    Am I right? If you own all of Mac's metals, feel free to post the exact weight of each. This is an important aspect for pocket carry for me.

    Thanks!
    ...and He separated the light from darkness. Check out my lights.

    Assuming all the lights you're comparing have the same amount of metal, the order would be: (densities in kilograms per cubic meter)
    copper 8940
    brass 8400-8700
    titanium 4500
    aluminum 2712

    Nice.

    Let's just assume the Tri EDC for this one. Anybody have exact weights, by chance?

    Copper is denser than brass. Assuming all the internal parts are the same (e.g. single-use batteries weigh less than rechargeables), the order will be Copper, Brass, Titanium, Aluminum. However, with the big chunk of brass in the light engine pill, and a fairly dense RCR18350 battery in the tube, the difference in the weight of the thin hollow shell alone is not going to be as significant as you think. Better to make the choice based on durability and appearance.

    I put together a bunch of information on different flashlight metals here.
