10440 is all I use in my copper. Loses the moonlight low but runs fine on high, doesn't get super hot.
Thanks! I'm gunna try it!10440 is all I use in my copper. Loses the moonlight low but runs fine on high, doesn't get super hot.
O no! My Trustfire 10440s are too long! Can't tighten it enough to get it to activate. Guess I'll order some Efest 10440s...do they come in button top or just flat top? Want to make sure I order the same ones you have so I know they'll fit.No worries, it's a great light
Thought about that but they're flat top cells so there's really no way to shorten them. Not sure why they're so long, pretty dumb. They work fine in my iTP A3's though which is funny because the Beta is much longer.Maybe you could file the button top down some? Not sure just a idea.
Yes, all three modes are brighter. Low is probably 40-60 lumens and high is probably around 300 lumens (compared to my SC62w @ 300 lumens, QR may be a bit brighter actually). Manages heat quite well on high in the copper version. I'll be running mine on 10440 as I like the higher high and the stock "moonlight" is WAY too bright IMO, I'd much rather ~0.05 lumens so I won't miss it.What is the advantages of the 10440 over the eneloop? Brighter high?
Thanks! Any pics or of examples of what that process of produces?Looks great for sure!! One of my all time fav copper lights. If you want to speed up the process or add some extra flair? Mix up some salt & vinegar and let it set on it a few hours. You can get some real nice corrosion. Or hang it in a jar above some ammonia. The fumes make it look neat. Or do both! Makes for a neat looks on copper. Especially this light which seems to be made of some really pure copper.
And Fenix LD02 head works on the Beta! More on that if anyone wishes.
