Astrolux FT01 Review

I’m not really keen on rear clicky “tactical” lights and this is no exception.

Thanks for another well-made video. I love the way you show the beam and levels in a variety of situations. Well done.

I also don’t care for the dual switch design. Some might, but I’d prefer something simpler and easier to manipulate with one hand in one position.

This one seems like a burly light that handles heat well for extended turbo time. Maybe you’re right in suggesting more output. I wonder if this would be a good candidate for an XHP70.2.

I think mine might be glitching, double clicking is going to high instead of Turbo.

Nice video, thank you for making. In my line of work I love the two switch setup. That tail tapping is going to be the same modes every time. If I’m searching a large or small building I’m not going to want mode changing as I turn on and off the light rapidly. More than a few good weapon handling technique with tail tapping. I also like the second physical switch to stop parasitic electronic switch drains. Also to note a slight tail twist and the light is locked out. This was built as a First responders light and I think they did everything right for what we need in the field.

The light pulls 7 amps on turbo with a fresh battery. If your battery dips too much with the drain it won’t change to turbo. I’ve had good luck with the Samsung 21700-40T, 21700-50E and the Sanyo NCR20700B.

My Sony VTC5A can handle well over 20 Amps.

Weird thing is I’m currently reviewing a rear clicky Klarus light at the moment and that struggles make Turbo!!!!
