Given mf01 is already 12k lumens and mf02(gorgeous looks)/4 is already ultra throwers, mf05 must be a beast with 7x xhp70.2 using the same tube thats fits 2 similar battery carriers 4×18650 ,which needs massive heatsinky thus the active cooling fan built in. hopefully its a budget ~30k lumens class budget light with great quality and looks so it can be a keeper. m thinking this could be the budget rival to the legendary but ulgy dx80 which is out of budget for most……….. for now……….

Are you guessing that the MF05 will be a fan cooled version of the MF03?
Maybe, but it seems a bit redundant.

(Btw, it’s 8x xhp70.2, not 7.)

JasonWW look at the first post.

I’ve known that since the thread started.

I still don’t understand the point you’re trying to make.

We must have some type of communication problem.

The first post doesn’t tell us anything, really. A “high powered” flashlight literally could be anything. It could be 10,000, 20,000, 30,000, 40,000, maybe even 50,000 lumen. It might have a bunch of 70.2 or it might have a bunch of 50.2. You could even have a bunch of xhp35.

It does seem highly unlikely that Astrolux would make two different versions of the same light, one with active cooling and one without. They will rob each other of sales. Ideally, they should be different enough that people will want to buy both. Not just one.

Is it my PC, or does this thread does not have a single pic showing the flashlight, prototype or something?

Astrolux announced this very early. My guess is to possibly hurt the sales of its competitor* the Acebeam X70 which might be released this month.

*Assuming the MF05 is going to be similar size and power.

But Acebeam confirmed that there will be Neutral White version of the X70 this time and not just cool white like all the other super bright flashlights! LOL

I do hope Astrolux offer a HI CRI version with the XHP70.2 4000k 80+CRI, which has perfect neutral tint that is nearly indistinguishable from the legendary Nichia NVSL219BT. Their MF01 219c 90+ CRI version seems to be super popular

Interested also. The 4500K tint gives the best balance of color discrimination and least blue bounce. I’d like to see that. 5000K produces a bluish reflection off of plants that makes it hard to see past them. 4000 makes it hard to distinguish among brown objects.

By putting “interested” does that mean I am in for the group buy?

Is there a difference between saying “interested” vs. “want one?”

I am interested and I want one.

XHP70.2 4000k 80+CRI Just wondering do you have a light with this, or did you read about that somewhere?

And do you know where we can buy this “perfect tint” emitter?

I have the Haikelite MT09R with the XHP70.2 4000k 80+ CRI. It actually looks very neutral white with no yellow, green, magenta, blue. I compared it with the triple Nichia NVSL219BT 4000k 90+CRI that every body likes and I can hardly tell the difference between the two tint.
https://www.pflexpro.com/Nichia-219-Triple-Flashlight-p/s2-219b-3up-3.8a...

In comparison, the tint on my flashlights with the XP-L HD 4000k, XP-L HI 4000k, and Nichia 219C 4000k looks completely different.
