to hell; high CRI, high lumens, people who know what they are doing better than I do looking for the best LED bins, double but not triple digit US dollar price:

I’m interested too
(I know it’s early to do specifics, but if it’s possible to forward stock into an EU warehouse and ship from there to EU persons that would be handy, I hate my customs office here, they are very cumbersome)

Edit: getting cold feet now, interest retracted, sorry. (too large, too cumbersome for any of my uses I’m not sure what was I thinking, probably something along the lines of “wow so bright”)

@mortuus, because it would require reworking the body.

Also, I think there should be a limited edition copper plated light.

yes i understand that but times change and it would be good see this kind of lights supporting better batteries 18650 feels kinda old now, wont the runtime not be as good then ? lumens increases alot so should the type of batteries it will support also.

Interested, depending on price.

If this ends up running Anduril (or at least can be flashed via pogo pin holes in the driver like the Emisar D4S), and the price is very similar to it’s direct competitor, the new Emisar D18, then I think the MF01S might just be a no-brainer. Many of us love Anduril, many of us love aux LEDs. These are two features that the D18 doesn’t seem to have. I suppose it does have an advantage of being a little smaller though, however if the MF01S has a higher sustainable output due to its size, then I’m going to have to count that as a win for the MF01S as well.

I suggested this when the project started but they were hard set on keeping the basic size and shape of the first MF01.

I had to beg for them to make it a little longer so it could fit some extra fins and a thicker shelf.

Also, 21700’s in a quad cell light are not something I am supper hip on as the battery tube becomes to big it would be uncomfortable to hold for most people. So in practical terms it would need to step down to a 3 cell light and that would cause complications with the carrier since the light runs in 2S2P.

A special edition copper version of the light is also possible with enough interest, they seemed open to a lot of custom versions if I could prove there was enough interest. They just have not told me how much interest is needed.

okok, i just think keeping the same size while on papers increasing lumens that much isnt maybe so good idea but what do i know xd, i mean that much lumens needs a bigger host imo but ofc this is they who decide, i can only try think a little bigger wouldnt hurt. im sure this will be a bestseller tho like the previous one which i like alot.

I said the same thing, I had to fight for the little change they did allow. This is why the thermal protection is so important. Left unchecked it will get WELL over 100C. I would stop the tests at ~105c but it was still climbing.

I will say it is a potent light as it is. With Narsil ramping it is far more usable then it was in the old version. Plus the parasitic drain is 1/20th of the old light (~200ua vs 5000ua, although that is before the auxled’s which have not been tested yet).
