Right on the heels of the hot Acebeam E70-AL, Acebeam released the E70-SS. That was a stainless steel version. Now we have the highly anticipated copper version, the E70-CU!
This copper version of the Acebeam E70 still boasts the same 4600 lumen output and 240 meter throw of the Aluminum version. ZeroAir has a review of the aluminum version out already.
The copper externals include a copper head, but the inner sleeve (for the tail e-switch) is still aluminum as with the other versions.
Though the product documentation doesn’t mention it, the pocket clip and toothy bezel are almost certainly stainless. They have a nice coloration to match the copper body.
Acebeam indicates that the E70-CU is not coated copper, and we should see some nice patina forming over time. The blue sleeve peeking through should really pop when the copper begins to patina!
While the aluminum version was fairly light and a reasonable EDC flashlight, this E70-CU weighs in at 214.5g. This weight is actually surprising for a copper 21700 flashlight and likely has a great feeling in hand. The light certainly has a presence!
The specs across the board are the same as other iterations of the E70. One notable exception is that copper will likely manage heat better, and so performance could be improved. Though, the stepdown from the review by ZeroAir does look timed.
The Acebeam E70-CU is available now at acebeam.com.
