Looking through the frosted TIR how many wires do you see? Two or six?

Does the head use torx screws?

It’s v2. Two wires on the MCPCB and torx head fasteners on the driver retaining ring.

I’ll second that the Amazon “MF01” SEEMS to be identical to a Astrolux MF01. I was lucky to get it for 49.99, ordered last night, free same day shipping, got it today. So I got my original MF01 under the original group buy (XPG3) so it is the first version of it. I compared the lux (ceiling bounce test with Samsung S8) with the Amazon MF01 and these were the rough comparisons:

Original Astrolux MF01
Turbo ~3.6k lux
Mode 4 ~ 2.0k lux

Amazon “MF01”
Turbo ~3.3k lux
Mode 4 ~1.0k lux

Moonlight was also a little brighter on the Amazon “MF01”. Other modes seem to be the same.

Sorry, this is all I could add, hope it helps.

How long does it stay in Turbo before it steps down? I noticed both my Nicha and Cree V2 versions step down in under a minute. It’s kinda lame if you ask me. No sure if I need to take them appart and replace the thermal material with some Arctic Cooling MX-4?

You will be “lucky” only if it is good quality.
If it is junk, you will be out $50 and be “unlucky”.

Now that you have it, do you consider yourself lucky or unlucky?

I could have bought it at $47, but chose not to. I would install a new Narsil based driver regardless. What worried me was the rest of the light. What if it used low grade crappy emitters (fake xpg3) or had an aluminum mcpcb? I would not feel so lucky then.

I’m not a big risk taker. Lol

Exactly. If this light indeed takes shortcuts, I imagine that $49.00 would easily cost you more than getting a legit one. You would be spending money on medication needed for the headache you’ve endured. lol.

Now that 911 light is $71. It seems to be slowly creeping up in price. Maybe they are trying to figure out how high they can go before people stop buying it.

It’s like they are evaluating the market. Maybe SM WORLD is Mateminco’s sales department collecting market research? Smile

HAHAH, yes I do feel lucky. Feel bad for some of you guys who couldn’t get it for under $50 Wink Since Amazon has great return policies, there was almost no risk involved.

Ceiling test just done on fully charged LGH2s

911-L1
Turbo – 3580 lx
Mode 4 – 1018 lx
Mode 3 – 573 lx
Mode 2 – 321 lx
Mode 1 – 12lx

MF01
Turbo – 4110 lx
Mode 4 – 2097 lx
Mode 3 – 501 lx
Mode 2 – 209 lx
Mode 1 – 8 lx

To compare with some other lights: (all on Samsung 30Qs)
BLF Q8s (Spring bypassed) couple of them – All within approx. 2000-2250 lx
Sofirn sp32a – 528 lx (Turbo)
BLF A6 (1A) – 497 lx (Turbo)

  • Some quick differences notes, my MF01 has a single driver spring, that is off center, actually looks sloppy. The 911-L1 is a double driver spring that is perfectly centered. My original MF01 came with a scratch on the lens, the 911-L1 is flawless. Also, tail cap on 911-L1 is fully anodized, whereas the MF01 tail cap has the bare aluminum exposed on the inside ring.

Saw the video, They are both basically the same product, Wish I had jumped on the $47 price, it is now $71 and climbing! Will just keep using the Q8 as my flooder…

Maybe if we are lucky the price will go back down after they realize nobody is biting at the $71 price. We’ll see.

Mode 4 and Turbo on the MF-01 mops the floor with the 911.

As far as I know, the mode 4 and turbo specs of the 911 coincides with that of MF01 V2, relative to that of MF01 V1. The “problem” with mode 4 of MF01 V1 is that it’s ~5000 lumens, and is going to step down quite rapidly to ~2000 lumens, even thought the body of the MF01 should handle more heat/lumens.
The mode 4 of MF01 V2 is ~3000 lumens, and the light is able to maintain this output continuously, at least when I tested it a couple of months ago. So specs wise the 911 (or MF01 V2) has lower output in mode 4 than the MF01 V1, but it is a much more usable output.
I have also tested a turbo output of ~9000 lumens for V2 compared to ~10000 lumens for V1 which again is in accordance with the relative specs of the 911 compared to the MF01 V1.

What was your runtimes on max turbo? Does it step down in less than a minute?

Time on turbo depends on cell voltage, as turbo output reduces with cell voltage. All I remember is that it steps down quite quickly, something like a minute or minute and a half. If you really want more precise figures, give me a beep, and I’ll fully charge some cells and do tests on both V1 and V2 of MF01 tomorrow, both with Nichia 219C emitters (I thought XP-G3 runs cooler for longer runtime on turbo).

I’m getting roughly a minute of turbo on fresh Sony VTC6 cells. It sounds as if 1 min is the norm. Really wish I could keep it at turbo but heat.. That light output though… Amazing.

Exactly. If this light indeed takes shortcuts, I imagine that $49.00 would easily cost you more than getting a legit one. You would be spending money on medication needed for the headache you’ve endured. lol.

After chatting with my friend in Mateminco (who also makes all the Astrolux MF series lights) he confirmed that the 911 unbranded version is made by them for a customer who wants to sell in Amazon but decided to take a loss on the first few units he sold at $49 just to bump up pucblicity of his store.

In short, that light in Amazon is a real Mateminco product.

I prefer the modes on the 911 over my Version 1 MF01. And the slight difference in lumens on turbo is very hard to notice with the naked eye when you are already in the 10k+ lumens range.

That’s going to be a slow sale at $109.00 when the group buy is still going on.

Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!
