I’d like if many more lights came with an external battery pack option. It’d have to be optional though, with a plug to eliminate most of the space the battery tube used. It’d be even better if that battery tube had 3 tapped holes for mounting on a tripod and on a bumper or roll cage. It’d be awesome if we could slap a suction cup mount next to the a-pillar of our vehicle and attach the head from our huge flashlights to use like a police searchlight. It’d be an expensive option though, so it’d have to be marketed as tacticool, err, tactical.

The low mode should be lower.

I really like the concept of the X70, but it (and this) will probably be too expensive, and wouldn’t a fan cause some highly excessive battery drain? The MF03 sounds good enough for me, I hope that one comes to life.

No. It should be insignificant.

I’m really into the concept of the MF03, since it isn’t active cooling I’m assuming speculating this will have more emitters or more power.
But again MF03 looks good enough, for me anyhow.

You shouldn’t assume anything about the MF05 because we have no idea what kind of light it’s going to be.

It could be a medium sized light designed to do a constant 10k to 12k lumen. Or maybe a giant light like the MF03 that can do higher outputs, but not continuously. We don’t know, yet.

Maybe “assuming” was the wrong term to use so I changed it.

I wasn’t referring to the physical size, only that I assume speculate it will be multi-emitter and probably more emitters/more power than the MF03 (which I think is the general consensus?) And reinforcing that theory is the fact that Astrolux didn’t think the MF03 needed active cooling.

I guess OTOH it could actually be only a single emitter, but I highly doubt it.

I am mainly interested because I very much like the idea that a Chinese manufacturer might be trying out the concept of a light wiht active cooling.

I’ll wait and see what idea(s) come(s) out of it.

As long as they do not glue everything together with red locktite………….

Completely agree.

Very curious what they will come up with.

Way interested! Especially if it rocks a tripod mount.

Interested, depending on whether the pocket clip is for head-up or head-down carry. Silly

Given mf01 is already 12k lumens and mf02(gorgeous looks)/4 is already ultra throwers, mf05 must be a beast with 7x xhp70.2 using the same tube thats fits 2 similar battery carriers 4×18650 ,which needs massive heatsinky thus the active cooling fan built in. hopefully its a budget ~30k lumens class budget light with great quality and looks so it can be a keeper. m thinking this could be the budget rival to the legendary but ulgy dx80 which is out of budget for most……….. for now……….

Are you guessing that the MF05 will be a fan cooled version of the MF03?
Maybe, but it seems a bit redundant.

(Btw, it’s 8x xhp70.2, not 7.)

i was wondering where mf03 went and i just checked it out and boy what a waste of reflector space and thus low light reflected efficiency. Yea i thought 7x big well spaced reflectors light like a typical skyrayking will make it repectable a semi thrower provided the head needs to be Massive…. like bigger than a mf04 to fit in big enough reflectors for the 7leds because xhp70 is big by itself. 4.5k lumens x7 can be great brute throwers if the individual reflectors are decent sized. this means the head needs to be 120cm at least.
