They are all the same now. You couldn’t get a version 1 if you tried.

My Convoy L6 thread with XHP70.2, Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil v1.2 ramping firmware (old), lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well.

What’s the CRI of the Nichia 291C LEDs used in the MF01? Are they the 83+ ones or the 90+ ones?

Which order do you think they will be released? MF03, MF05 and “X”?

Base on current progress, my prediction:

  1. X (order starts around end-June/ July)
  2. MF03
  3. MF05

MF03 and MF05 should be at least 3mths apart from each other?

Hello,

are there some protected batteries which fit into MF01 and also Turbo will work or this is not possible at all?
I just ordered it today.

Thanks.

It would be pointless use protected batteries as no u wont be able to use the turbo mode as the protection will kick in pretty fast, these lights need use unprotected high drain batteries only. most flat tops would fit but not all protected but like i said its pointless. IF u have fear in using unprotected then perhaps this light is not for you – with great power comes great responsibility.

Noticed this is on BG 12th anniversary sale at an insane price of US$69.99. Just wondering what people think which LED option is best? 219C or XP-G3?

define “best”
XP-G3 is brighter and gets slower hot, 219C has a way better tint and of course the high CRI

I have the 219C Version and would always go for that.

ssschen if u want as bright as possible get the xp g3 version, if u dont like cool white and want better tint and slightly lower lumens, then nichia version is better but everyone likes different.
