Can Massdrop do a version without the clicky back? I had combined the high CRI head with the old style twisty back from maratac and I prefer that UI over the switch, mainly because it's a bit smaller and sticks out of my pocket less. But it's also a lot faster to get to the alternate settings.
Well, I couldn’t resist. Had to order the Brass one to add to the Copper and Titanium models that I already had. 🤗

These are gorgeous little lights. I’m not crazy about patina, so I occasionally dip these, my spinners, and tops, in Tarn-X, followed by a rinse, and they remain as bright as the day they arrived.

In 5 different flavors!!!!😀😀
What ABOUT the aluminum version?
yep - no cree, no sale.

Nichia for life man. That high CRI is what I love for.
When will the cree be back in stock?
I've lost my pocket clip. Can anyone recommend a replacement?

Ray, this Maratac clip will fit. It’s not Brass like the original clip, but it’s the one I’ve come across so far.

I have some spare clips in black, silver and gold. I can send you one if you like!
Enjoying the light so far but one minor gripe: the switch cycles through low/off/medium/off/high/off, so if you want a high beam that takes 5 clicks, which can get annoying, especially when you're not certain if you're starting in low or medium. I have another light where a long press on the switch automatically boosts to the high setting, then reverts back to whatever setting it was on when you release the switch -- if this had that feature it would be ideal. At least it's a nice button to press, but I sure wish it wasn't necessary to press it so many times to find the setting I want each time I use the light.
Would have got one if the white led version wasn't sold out!
Does it throw a uniform beam circle, or are there hot spots in the beam?
Can anyone tell me if the lens of the light is glass or plastic?...need one that is glass.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
This is such a great flashlight. It patinas very well. And now, I need one in Copper, just do. 😊
I love patina, and my EDC's are mostly Brass and Copper. So, when it's pocket time for my lovely brass stuff, it's with me. So, for my copper edc's, I just need one, ore, I could find another.... We'll see. Much goodies here at Massdrop.
I've had my brass Cree version for a year now without any issues. I use it nightly and it lives on my bedside table. It's been slowly developing a beautiful patina and I'm very happy with the purchase. I use it almost exclusively in low mode, which is perfect for navigating around a dark room without waking a significant other. The gently glowing ring behind the glass makes it easy to locate after you've turned it off and set it down (plus, it just looks cool).

After reading all of the issues people are having with this light, I wonder if there is a quality control issue, since it seems to be hit or miss - or maybe I just got lucky. I would still highly recommend the light, based on my own experience, especially with the warranty that is provided.
HAS YOUR ELECTRONIC BUTTON STOPPED WORKING?

Several posts have reported that the electron button on these MassDrop/Lumintop flashlights stopped working. I have encountered this a couple of times now with the Blue Titanium AAA flashlight that I just received and have discovered why it’s happening.

The seals on the light are so good that if the battery you use experiences any off-gassing, pressure will build up inside the light to a point where you can’t push the button down to turn the light ON. In fact, it feels like the button has broken entirely.

However, I unscrewed the button end just a bit, heard a “Pffttt!” sound, and suddenly the button works again. Apparently, high pressure inside the light can prevent the button from being pushed down at all. Thought this might be helpful to those who have reported button issues.

It’s an older Duracell. You know, the ones with the pinch tester on the side of them? Had a handful that I am “burning“ through until they die. Then I’ll go back to my Eneloops
Only use eneloops and it hasn't been a problem.
