Astrolux MF04S vs The BLFGT!

Hi all,

Hope you enjoy the show Smile

In Him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Great video! I wonder how it measures up to your GT with XHP70.2.

I left mine with the cells in for about 2 days, and didn’t get a noticeable drop in cell voltage. I will leave it for a long time and see what happens. I don’t get an led flicker in the actual low mode (30 lumen). Once in a while if I mess with it enough I get an “extra” mode that looks like a fire fly but mimics the on/off flow of the switch. I was going to mention that in the video but I forgot. Also I cannot force it to repeat the behavior even after trying several times.

I've used my MF04S extensively and no glitches.  After reading about the mf02 massive parasitic drain, I keep the mf04 tail cap always unscrewed as it's probably the same.

Does the MF04S tube fits the MF02 or MF01? dual head would be awesome.

For dual head, you probably also would like to know if they share the same battery holder configuration ? Wink

Very nice video “Matt” and I like your setup and workshop. I have watched several of your video’s and they are very helpful and educational, especially for us newbie’s. I probably would not be doing the mod on the MF04 if I had seen your video on the MF04S a few months ago, LOL but we are committed to it now.
