I would be interested in one for around $15.

Looks a lot like this:

I seem to recall that no low voltage protection and a pretty specialised cell made it a non-starter for me then.

May be different this time. I wonder who will be the first to review?

Looks like it’s the exact same internals in a different shell. The Cooyoo SS is $22 with coupon code but $45 full price; this is currently $26. If it stays at $26 as the full price and the Cooyoo coupon ends, it would be a good deal comparatively.

Even that little gem did not turn my better half over to The Bright Side.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Yay to nichia! Astrolux is doing a very good job at shrinking my wallet. Silly

Edit: Actually, I have the same concerns as the MecArmy flashlights I’ve previously seen. Is the battery protected? Does the light protect the 10180 battery from getting overdischarged?

Seems to be $15.99 preorder promotion now. It looks like I am the first preorder. Went for priority direct shipping too.

what differences exists between the xpg2 and the nichia? Same lumen output? Tint? Color temp? Beam??

I hate Banggood… I promised not to buy any flashlights for the next two month.

Preordered one of each Oops

Edit: I already have a Black Water Kite al and it came with a black 10180 battery with 100mAh (I guess it will be the same that you will get with this Astrolux M01). I also ordered some of these and even though they are rated at 70mAh they last longer and the light seems to be a little bit brighter with those. They are cheaper at Gearbest…

I have the CooYoo-something, and there is no protection in that I think, as I’ve ended up with one battery totally flat in that… but then again, I ordered 5 spares for $1.50 each or something like that at Gearbast, so not a huge deal. I’m considering getting one of these with the Nichia… Smile

The batteries are not protected and I’m almost 100% sure that the light won’t have a low voltage protection, too.

About all 10180 that I know: batteries are always not protected and flashlight not low voltage protection. All are the same: DQG, Coyoo, Veleno, Astrolux…. Is not a problem.

For this price, M01; Stainless steel, rechargeable, battery included…. Is a really good offer.

I preordered one anyway for the Nichia. It’s the smallest high CRI light that I’ve come across so far. How can I say no?

Now, if only someone would make a Nichia zoomie flashlight…

It’s very hard for me to say no to a Nichia flashlight. I was wondering, should we make a list of Nichia high CRI flashlights? Or would that cause some of us to spend even more than we need to???

Is it a bad assumption to think that all nichia 219B’s are all high cri .?

Yes.

Wait, then should I be concerned that this Astrolux M01 did NOT advertise the Nichia’s CRI value?

Since the battery is not protected and the flashlight does not cut off below a certain voltage, is there any cue as to when the battery is due to be charged? A noticeable dimming? Or do you take your chances on running the battery down too far and damaging it?

While it is possible that they used one of the lower binned lower CRI versions, I doubt they used it because the main draw of having the 219B is the high CRI version. But without knowing exactly what 219B they used, it is technically possible they used the lower CRI version.

Other lights in this style are pretty dim at about 2.8 volts. This is a good voltage and you will definitely notice when it’s time to recharge… but in case you forget to turn it off, you will probably damage the battery.
