I have not gotten a final sample yet to measure for myself. Nor have the final LED’s been selected yet. So it is impossible to say.

This was in the plans early on but the lumen output was not much better then the XP-G3 / SST-20 and the cost would have to be higher with XP-L HI, so they scrapped that idea.

It is possible to swap the LED’s yourself but considering the cost of 18 xp-l LED’s I can understand why they decided to not do it.

I do have one here with the XP-L HI setup and it works good but honestly I prefer the SST-20 version and have been using it for almost everything recently.

@mortuus, because it would require reworking the body.

Also, I think there should be a limited edition copper plated light.

A special edition copper version of the light is also possible with enough interest, they seemed open to a lot of custom versions if I could prove there was enough interest. They just have not told me how much interest is needed.


I’m imagining an MF01S that weighs about the same as a BLF GT Smile Secondary uses – house demolition, holding small children down, etc

Lexel, will the aux LEDs be adjustable or be able to be completely disabled from the main firmware, or only from the trimmers on the aux board? And if it’s just the aux board, they better make sure not to glue it!

Yeah, the MT18 and MF01 are the same light, just a different logo. I just call it an MT18 as that was the working name when the project was started last year.

Size wise, it should be the same size as the MF01, just a little taller so we could fit the extra fins. I think the hand is just small and makes the light look larger.

Clear version looks about 10 times nicer than the silver one.

A clear version with some bezel selections or even set! I want Orange!

Can these batteries be used with this light? I know performance will be reduced but I want an every day option with some safety. I am limmited by local tax limit:

They’ll either trip, or it won’t go anywhere near max.

edit:: actually, even samsung 30Qs were a squeeze into the MF01; I don’t think they’ll even fit. I’ll let someone more knowledgeable than I answer that fully.

Here are some comparison shots between the old MF01 and the new MF01S. I had actually not seen a side by side before, The new version is actually a little shorter.
