Thanks for posting those images. Have you compared the beamshots with the GT? How is the tint on this?

Tnx for posting the images Steel_1024!

Good to read that this light is easy to open/modify and just look at that gigantic DTP copper board! Thumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up

I like the design of the light, anxious waiting for throw measurements.

Cheers,
Nico

Thanks for the beamshots! Beautiful pictures! I like the GT neutral white tint more because you can see the details easier.

Thank you for the beamshots. I like the cooler white tint on the mt35s. I can’t wait to get one.

Thanks for the beautiful beamshots!

So, the Astrolux is at least on par with the GT (at least, comparing the two lights in these pics), so all we need to know now is…………the price.

BTW Yes, the GT has better color and detail rendering due to the led tint, but mine is very NW, even tends towards warm white.
I wonder if the latest bin cooler white would not give it more throw. (1.142.000Cd at this time, with four 30Q cells)

Wait, could you point to the link of the Mateminco MT35 Plus?

I want to see the info Evil

Also, wow! The much warmer tint of the BLF GT does make things much easier to see at long distances.

This is why the 4000k choice for the XHP35HI was a great one.

Very nice pics, thanks.   Is it safe to assume the MT35 Plus will have around 30% less lumens than advertised just like the MF02?

The latest MF02 seem to be pulling 2.5A to 3A at the emitter. I guess it was recently bumped up to this. I don’t think you can get any more out of the xhp35-HI. 3A might even be too much. I think this is about 2,000 to 2,200 otf. Somewhere around there.

I would expect the MF04 to match this. It can’t be any higher and I doubt they would dial it lower.

So that’s about 27% to 33% less than 3,000 lumen. So yes, about 30% less.

If you look at the ads for the MT35 Plus, you will see they list it at 2700 lumen. That’s still exaggerated. Actual output should be about 18% to 26% less for that advertised spec.

Still, we won’t know for sure until it’s actually measured.
