Ps, I don’t remember them saying they wanted a December release. Maybe I forgot. Companies tend to prioritize things based on their competition so it’s normal for projects to get delayed or canceled. It’s just normal business to me.

When freeme started this thread back in November, he put a December release date on there. He has since pushed that date multiple times. I realize projects get delayed. I would have just put the date as TBD until I knew for sure when it would get released. Slipping dates makes the company look bad and causes loss of credibility. I realize we are talking about hobby flashlights and not life saving medical devices here, but still. Smile

I’m interested. Is this supposed to be like a Mini version of the MF04 like the Mini GT is a mini of the BLF GT? If that is the case, this better throw farther than the Mini GT and Emisar D1S that uses 18650 batteries. Hopefully, this performs better than the Thrunite Catapult V6 too.

No, it’s not like it’s a miniature MF04. I think the name they decided on is misleading.

Anyway, this is a unique light. Using a boost driver and xhp35-HI. 21700 battery. I see they mention an xhp50.2 version as well.

There is not a lot known at the moment. No lumen specs, no candela numbers. I think it does have the potential to out throw the GT Mini and D1S, though. Who knows if it will.

In theory this MF04s will have a bigger hotspot than GT MINI.

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

My Supfire L5-S thread with XHP70, Texas Avenger FET driver, NarsilM v1.0 ramping firmware and lighted side switch. My mini L6!

No dimensions yet.

From the CAD rendering, I believe it should be between standard C8 to Emisar D1S.

Couple of weeks ago, i was told that X project met a roadblock. It has never ever happened before for ASTROLUX. cry

Fortunately, Swi said that they are still very keen in making it.
