Haikelite Products Upgrade and Improvement Official Announcements

Hi everyone

From many customers’ feedback Haikelite flashlights are getting better and better, but still have some aspects and details to be improved.
We have been trying to summarize all the imperfections and would like to hear the suggestions from end users.

The purpose that We open this thread is to publish the upgrade and improvement for some Haikelite products.

  1. New Batch of MT03 in stock ; White Color available ; A little change with the switch plate. Completed

  1. New batch of MT07 in stock next week ; Changed the reflector to SMO reflector ; Emitter upgrades into XHP70.2. Completed

#3: As to SC01/SC02/MT01 , Clicking too fast or too slow wont turn on the light occasionally. We have improved the switch programing , The occasionally clicking-fail wont happen any more. Completed

Haikelite is too busy with other new products . But we want to keep our mind open to receive all the Criticism and feedback.

So if you have any idea or thought about haikelite, please post here to let us know.

Dear HaikeLite-team,

good to hear, that you make your products better and better ! Thumbs Up

I own or have ordered nearly all of your flashlights ( 10-15 pieces) and I like them a lot.

But many people have problems with the lockout-function (SC01, MT01) and think, that the flashlight is damaged because it`s not working. Maybe you could change the UI for lockout…
This could be a important upgrade.

The other issue i had with my recent MT03 light is that their quality control is bad.

There is a dent on my light which I’m yet to contact banggood.

I also paid for insurance and Im not sure how they going to address this issue.

Can you lend me some money to buy new flashlights?

I’m yet to receive my first HeikeLite light, but I have one complaint already.
Stop inflating your numbers. It’s really disheartening to buy a 150 kcd light and then learn it’s 70kcd. Frankly, I didn’t believe 150 kcd, but nevertheless hoped for much more.

The first batch of MT03 released a year ago had problems with the 4S configuration, so only 2S2P was offered since then. Any chance you could go back to 4S again, just like MT07S?

MT02. 70 kcd is from a review
If I knew the real number, I would consider MT01 instead….and probably get MT02 anyway. But I would be more satisfied with it.

Suggestion: improve your spring soldering. Many people, including myself on my MT02, had springs fall off very early on.

If you upgrade the MT07 to XHP70.2, then it makes sense to upgrade MT03 to XHP70.2 as well? People might be hesitant to purchase MT03, worrying it will be updated to XHP70.2 soon as well.

For customers that bought your earlier versions and can prove it, can you offer a nice discount on the new versions of the same models?  

I really like the looks and general design of your lights, but I quit using my MT03 and MT07 (first version, both) due to parasitic drain (ruined a nice set of 30Q's) and mushy buttons.

I really like your brand and your lights, you guys keep up with the latest styles, but unfortunately I stopped purchasing your lights when you guys removed turbo from the mode sequence. I was able to turn the light off on turbo so that the next time I turn the light on, it will be on the highest mode…turbo.
Now, all your new lights require a double click. And I think, it’s requires another another double click to get to max.
The double click is nice to have, for when I have the light on medium , and want quick access to turbo. But, to require that from off is a pain.
Please put turbo back in the mode sequence and I’m sure you’ll have more buyers.

The problem fixed already,, all springs are soldered by 2-3 solder joints to enhance the stability.

MT03 is a flood light. We have no plan to upgrade it to XHP70.2. So MT03 will still have XHP70 version. and the beam color of MT03 XHP70 is nicer.

Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

How about an MT-G2 option?

All it is a MCPCB LED pad minor redesign

Can I get a replacement driver for my MT01? Can you stop ignoring my emails please and let me know whats going on with the replacement driver that you promised? It would be nice to have a working flashlight instead of a $50 paperweight.

It’s unfortunate there is no neutral white MT02 available. Also, the Haikelite web site is now showing a suspending hosting account.

Got my MT02. Some places for improvement:

  • improve battery choice description, the light needs button top. You don’t mention it, BangGood say straight that flat tops are supported
  • I really dislike the UI:
    • With long waits (especially during mode change) it feels really sluggish
    • There’s no way to reduce brightness w/out destroying night vision by going through high
    • The low mode is much higher than I’d like
    • I prefer ramping to modes
    • I suggest that you rip it off and replace with some open source BLF firmware. A small 1-time cost of porting, yet huge improvement in user experience.
  • It may be just my light, but machining of battery tube interior is the worst that I’ve seen so far. Works OK as there’s nothing sharp in it, it just looks cheaper than the $5 lights I’ve seen so far.
  • I believe a XHP35 HI LED would be a better choice. Now it just doesn’t throw as far as I’d like….though, frankly, I expected so since I learned intensity measurements from a review.

Hello Haikelite,

My first Haikelite lights I bought are two MT02. First one was dead on arrival, and the second one works, but the low voltage protection kicks in at 3.7V, which is way too early.
The MT02 is rated at 800m throw, which means 160k lux. In reality it’s about 60~70k lux. This is just a no go.
I really like Haikelite in terms of looks and specs, but I (still) have my doubts when it comes to reliability of the driver. I’m interested in the silver MT03, but I don’t want similar problems I have with my MT02. I recently got the Atrolux MF01, which is comparable to MT03, and it is so good that I wonder why I’m considering the MT03 at all. I recently also read about a member who received the MT03 not too long ago, and there were several QC issues that reminded me of the first group buy a year ago… I hope you can make improvements, because I do like Haikelite lights a lot.

Thanks!
