Best Copper Keychain Flashlight
RovyVon Aurora A9 CU
|Max output||450 lumens|
|Max beam intensity/distance||90 meters|
|LED type||Nichia 219C|
If there is 1 type of flashlight that fit everybody, it is likely a keychain flashlight. We reviewed many flashlight, and the RovyVon Aurora A9 was one of them. It’s a copper keychain light with a maximum output of 450 lumens with a Nichia 219C emitter. There is another version with the XPG3 emitter, which can get up to 650 lumens, but you can see from our test, this output is only short lived.
All modes last longer than 1 hour, which is nice. Some high power keychain lights don’t last longer than 30-40 minutes. The lowest mode can run for about 26 hours, which is great, but the output is low, as can be expected. Interested in knowing all the details? Read our full RovyVon Aurora A9 review.
Best copper AA flashlight (EDC)
Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 Copper
|Max output||650 lumens|
|LED type||CREE XPL2 HD|
|Battery configuration||1*AA / 14500 lithium ion|
If you want something brighter than a regular keychain flashlight, you can step it up and get the Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 CU as your EDC flashlight. This is one of the very popular Lumintop flashlights out there. We reviewed 3 different Lumintop Tools on our site, and this copper is one of them.
Using copper materials is especially useful with high power flashlights because copper transfers heat much better and quicker than aluminum or titanium. Therefore a copper flashlight can be especially useful. The Tool AA cu outperforms its specifications. Lumintop only claims an output of up to 650 lumens, in reality, it almost reaches 1000 lumens with a 14500 lithium-ion battery. On AA batteries, the output is about 140 lumens. (with the XP-L HD LED, Nichia LEDs won’t be able to reach this). Read our in-depth review of the Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 copper for more details.

Best copper EDC (18650)
|Max output||2,800 lumens|
|Max beam intensity||10,000 cd|
|LED type||3* XPL-HI|
One of the most popular flashlights in the past years is the Lumintop FW3A (read the review). Since it was announced about 1-2 years ago, many improvements had been made, including a variety of different materials. The Lumintop FW3 is also available in Titanium, Stainless steel, Brass, Aluminum and even Mokume.
It is one of the shortest 18650 flashlights in production. At the heart of the flashlight are 3*Cree XPL LED emitters that can produce up to 2,800 lumens, albeit for a short time. It is fully programmable because of the Anduril firmware that is used.
Best copper 18650 thrower
Astrolux FT03 Mini
|Max output||4,200 lumens|
|Max beam intensity||51,000 cd|
|LED type||CREE XHP 50.2|
There aren’t many large copper flashlights, and the Astrolux FT03 cu Mini is just a tad bigger than most of the other flashlights available, but still not too big. It’s a mini thrower as we would call it. It’s very powerful, but the output will only last for a few minutes.
That being said, you really need a high-amp battery like the Sony VTC 6, VTC 5A, or the Samsung 30Q. Without a proper battery, you won’t be able to reach its max potential, and in some case the light will turn off because of a low quality battery.
Please read our in-depth review of the Astrolux FT03 CU Mini for all the interesting details. The flashlight can only be bought at Banggood.
Best copper thrower
Astrolux FT03s copper (SBT90.2)
|Max output||4,500 lumens|
|Max beam intensity/distance||1,428 meters|
The Astrolux FT03s is a high power thrower with the popular Luminus SBT90.2 LED. This particular emitter can produce about 5000 lumens with the right battery. The FT03s runs on 26650 batteries, but you can use an adapter to use a 21700 or 18650 Lithium-Ion battery. If you’re looking for a high power copper LED flashlight, with great throw.. have a look at this one.

What’s the best copper keychain flashlight
We tested the RovyVon Aurora A9 CU which is a great little flashlight.
Why would you prefer a copper flashlight over an aluminum flashlight?
Copper transfers heat much faster and better than aluminum. Having a copper LED emitter board, shelf and body, the output could be considerably brighter for a longer period of time.
Can I keep my copper flashlights shiny?
When you buy a copper flashlight, it’s likely sent in a vacuum bag. Once you open that bag, the copper color will slowly lose its shininess, and in the long run will change to a darker red, and eventually can turn green (copper patina). Keychain copper flashlights usually don’t get that far, because of the constant touching of your pockets.
