Is the MF02 also based on a Mateminco design?

Who owns the Astrolux name? I know Manker made some Astrolux lights now Mateminco. It’s confusing. Lol

A little digging shows it may be a Banggood house brand. They contract other companies to make a light and use their Astrolux name on it.

Interesting how success of MF02 depends a lot on how well the MF01 is going to be received in the next couple of weeks, perhaps month or so…

Does anyone have any knowledge of Mateminco’s reliability and quality of prior models? I have zero knowledge of the company, but these MF01’s seem to be really well made. Especially for the price range they are in.

That part is not accurate. Manker has built some Astrolux models as well.

It’s a mixed bag. Typically innovative design, but not always so stellar QA/QC. They have also made lights for Manker.

Please add me to the interest list for this MF.

I am also very interested in the MF01, which I think is rather more of a technical challenge, and much more costly in materials (leds and driver). Anxiously awaiting feedback from early adopters before taking the plunge and requesting a code for that.

I suppose that technically the MF02 is not very complicated, provided the reflector is optimal, and the driver adequate, it ought to be great.

Hmmm, Mateminco makes the S01 which looks just like the Manker E14 which looks just like the Astrolux S41. Maybe Manker didn’t make the Astrolux S41? Maybe all 3 lights where made by Mateminco?

Dear friends,


First of all, thank you for your attention to this brand. We need to clarify that Mateminco is a brand that we only sell domestically. Thank you!


 


Best Regards,

Its owned by Banggood as there house brand.
They had an argument with Manker and then Manker said they will stop building lights for them. Bad QC on our old BLF builds i can see a few reason behind this.

I also had an argument with Manker thus i do not but there lights lol.

So I guess we don’t really know who Mateminco is. Banggood has “someone” build lights for them and they label it Mateminco for the Asian market and Astrolux for the international market.

Whew, making me dizzy here. Lol

It wouldn’t be uncommon for companies to get different parts from different places and get some to assemble it or assemble the lights them selves. So technically Astrolux could company and assembles the lights them selves?

+1

I like many models but since its quality control is a lottery I do not buy in the first wave, I wait until I see that there are no faults

I have many model Astrolux and I like

About Astrolux, Mateminco, Manker: that each draw its own conclusions http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1071543#comment-1071543, I have mine but I reserve it
