If you’re looking to add style to your everyday carry gear, look no further than titanium and copper flashlights. Not only do these mini flashlights keep you prepared with a boost of light at your fingertips, but the distinctive and eye-catching body will set you apart from the crowd. Here are 5 quick reasons why these flashlights deserve a spot in your pocket!
1. Titanium flashlights are extremely durable
Most of the flashlights in our store are made from aluminum — and for good reason. Aluminum provides an excellent balance between weight and durability that makes it a great choice. But if you’re like a lot of our customers who put their gear through the ringer, you might want to consider titanium as an alternative.
With a tensile strength stronger than steel, titanium flashlights will stand up to the test of time better than their aluminum counterparts so your gear will stay in tip top shape for years to come.
2. Enjoy a better hand-feel without adding extra weight with copper flashlights
One complaint we get about keychain and mini flashlights is how dainty they feel to those of you with bigger hands.
If you don’t require the extra strength of titanium (or want to avoid the extra cost), copper flashlights give you a great second option. On par with aluminum for durability, copper bodies will weigh just a little bit more for a heftier feel in your hand without adding even more extra weight. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a huge difference.
3. Copper flashlights are their own works of art
Copper enthusiasts will quickly tell you that one of the best things about copper is the natural patina that develops over time, turning your flashlight into a work of art. The oils on your hands and constant exposure to air begin to transform the finish of your copper EDC flashlight from day one — no two copper flashlights will look the same for long!
4. Avoid germs with copper’s natural antimicrobial properties
If you’re constantly using your mouth as a third hand, you might want to consider a copper flashlight for your carry. Copper is naturally antimicrobial — hospitals often use copper door knobs for this reason — and can help prevent the spread of germs. When you start to think about all the dirt and grime your flashlight is exposed to day in and day out, the benefit here is obvious.
5. Display your unique style with titanium flashlights
Black anodized aluminum is ubiquitous in the world of flashlights, but if you want to set yourself apart from the crowd, picking an alternate metal for your EDC torch is a no-brainer. Between copper which requires no extra finishing and titanium which can be found with a variety of coatings and finishes, there’s a flashlight to fit any style.
