Astrolux K1

Just found it in email.
https://www.banggood.com/Astrolux-K1-Stainless-Steel-XP-G3365nm-UVRed-LE...
New keychain light from banggood.
Absorbs previous features (XP-G3+365nm UV+red led) with 500mah battery in SS case.
Seems much more compact than TIP.

And a nicer design IMO, and it has some waterproofness.

But these modes: 250LM,210LM,150LM,40LM (Group1)
Where is the low mode?? Tired

I like design and price… but I miss low mode, I miss lock out option or similar for avoid a disaster….(a long press of 1.5 sec is possible in the pocket,…and Turbo….)
With 2 switch, I do not understand this interface…

Glad they have chosen an alu shell for K1. Color options are pretty nice.

 

I suspect the cover may pop out easily like S42. sealed

Freeme, you seem to have good contacts Smile , can you convince BG/Astrolux to have the UI of this otherwise really attractive and great priced light improved?

Slowly morphing into a Nitecore TIP just not fully there yet (looks wise) lol.

Feature wise it seems great.

I not use the mySGN3 because have not lock out and have led UV, (UV without lock out must be corrected).
I like the design of the previous option Xanes…. but also awful interface without security for the user. Please, I love this and the Xanes design, why not aceptable and security interface for the user?, it should not be so difficult to think a little for manufacturers or creators ….

I love this format matchbox, I have used: SGN3, SGN5, TIP old, TIP new, Manker,…. For a pocket light like this the user interface must allow security of not turn on, or some physical protection. If they implement UV, must be specially carefully for the interfaz, UV is not a joke (yes you will not see the effects at the moment, but please, use with precaution!

It looks very good with all the bells and whistles. Nice colors too. I’m tempted… but i’m really worried about the UI after all the nonsense they have managed to put into the S42. Wont get bitten twice! Waiting for review… Flat Stare

I would not expect those LEDs to be true 365nm more likely 385nm

The title and description both say stainless steel.

well! Usb cover is ok.
UI sucks!
Always starts on high or turbo,no memory .
Lower button long press goes to turbo then every click T-H-M-L, another long press turn off.
Double click start on High then single click H-M-L,long press turn off.
Single click from off does nothing.
long press upper button turn on UV and short click when on switch to red,another long press turn off.

Tint BLUE!!!

Price should be max usd5$!!

Nitecore Tip on flash sale 17,99! Superior light in every way…

Or buy nitecore tube for 5,99 on sale it is smaller lighter and has better UI.

Another fail from Astrolux after s42 fiasco…
