What’s So Great About Titanium Flashlights?
Titanium is a material that makes a flashlight look phenomenal. The beautiful style alone often causes flashlight enthusiasts to flock to titanium flashlights. However, looks alone are not the only reason that titanium is so great. Titanium is actually quite a bit tougher than aluminum making your LED flashlight even stronger. It’s even resistant to corrosion!
High quality aluminum flashlights will typically have a hard anodized coating on the outside. This coating will give the flashlight a matte look and often will make the flashlights wear resistant. However, with time and use aluminum flashlights will start to show the wear and the hard anodized finish may start to chip away. This finish helps to prevent the aluminum from rusting and protects the flashlight. With a titanium flashlight you don’t need to worry about this. Titanium is resistant to rust and doesn’t need a hard anodized finish for extra protection so you won’t see any finish chipping away throughout the years you use it.
Titanium is an excellent material, but there are some things you should know about it. First, which you may already know, is that a titanium flashlight is quite a bit more expensive than an aluminum flashlight.. It also doesn’t dissipate heat as well as an aluminum flashlights though it still does have good heat dissipation. Finally, it’s typically heavier than an aluminum flashlight, though not too much heavier. Whether the pros outweigh the cons is up to you. Titanium is so strong, beautiful, and ages fairly well that many users love it.
