Mateminco is offering the last pieces of the Mateminco MT07 in purple, pink and orange. If you like these colors and can order on Taobao you should get them now as they are a limited edition / custom colors and Mateminco won’t make any more once they are sold out. The link is: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.4.b2a84f31VAn3Ji&id=6014...

They don’t write the colors but it’s the third option from below ‘custom colors note color’. You would need to contact them, ask what they still have and order with this option then. There are no pictures from the seller just customer reviews.

Oh I see. Thanks for the tips. I’ll see how much I like the light when I receive mine. If it is good, I might by one of those special colors. I really like my purple MF01S. I might buy a purple or pink MT07 for my daughter if the quality is good like the MF01s.

You may want to hurry up because they only have very few pieces left and when they are sold they are gone. I’m not sure if Taobao ships to the US or if you need a Taobao agent to ship it to you.

Anyone having trouble using a coupon code on BG?

It seems they moved the coupon entry field further down the ordering process but cannot find it?

Apologies for going OT but, does anyone know how the tail-spring pcb is held in place in the tailcap?  I'd really like to be able to pop a round magnet in there as all of my other EDC lights have them. 

I just know I'll put this up to a surface and let go expecting it to magically stick without a magnet, right before it plummets to the floor. Facepalm

Are you able to take power consumption (current) measurements for the aux-LED? I’m wondering how high the “parasitic drain” of the aux-LEDs would be when at max brightness.

I will try to measure the parasitic drain later including the current consumption during turbo.

Here are my measurements:

All AUX LEDs at max brightness – 15 to 18mA – it means it will drain the a 5500mAh battery in 305 hours
- if I set the green at max brightness, the blue and purple LED will not turn on at low AUX mode. Green LED need to be adjusted down a bit for the blue and purple LED to light up at low mode.

Max Ramp tail cap current – 7-8 Amperes
Turbo tail cap current – 20 to 21 Amperes on a freshly charged Vapcell 26650 5500mAh battery. This is one of the highest tail cap measurement I have so far.

One thing I noticed is that the battery voltage indicator is off by 0.2 volts. When I placed a 4.2V fully charged battery, it only blinks out 4.0V. I also saw this on my sand and gray colored light. Do you guys also noticed this issue?

Holy Moly, 21amps even at 4 Volts is a lot. How fast does it termo regulate down? Few seconds? Did anyone measure the luminous flux? It could be very nice. If that is SST20 I am looking forward to how the XPL HI will turn out.

Yes, that is crazy. My convoy M3 draws only 10Amps. The step down is gradual, like a very slow ramp. After about 30 seconds it is back to same level as max ramp. Yes, this is sst-20. I wonder how long the turbo will be on the copper version. I have yet to program/change the step down temp settings

I bought a degausser for exactly that reason, My SKX007 was running fast when I bought it and it being magnetised was a possible reason for it, so I got that covered. Silly

I've gone ahead & ordered a bunch of 25x2mm N50's anyway, if it comes to it I'll epoxy it to the outside of the cap, gotta haz me dems magical magnets.  LOL

For those of you like me interested in the silver colour but confused about it’s true shade I found this picture online. Not sure but I feel it may more accurately depict the shade of silver than the Banggood pictures where it is darker.

I tested my MF01 Mini tonight and also got 21A turbo and 7-8A max ramp, on the Vapcell 5500mAh (Big Red) cell. The SST-20 4000K in this light is some of the best I’ve seen. Not even my FW3A or EDC18 SST-20 4000K models have such a good tint.

Excellent light… Will tune the Aux LED’s tomorrow night. That’s about the only thing I will “change” on this light.

Nice. We got the same results. Mine was SST-40 6500K. I’m still waiting for the 4000K Cri 95 version.

Yes, it is easy. I used a small flat head screw driver. First you enable the high settings for the AUX LED, then turn clockwise to increase the brightness.

HI mate, how to enable high settings for the Aux LED? Also, can you help me set my aux to blinkinking mode? The manual did not specifically says how except for 7 clicks on off and 3 clicks on lockout mode. Thank you so much.

With the light off, have you tried 7 fast clicks? I think that should switch the aux lights to the next mode.

I have one of the MF01S and the Mini in Silver.

Where the full size is anodized so it looks light silver gray and expensive the Mini is stark aluminium.

It’s like the difference between a satin and high gloss paint.

It’s even more pronounced than the BLF A6 SE non anodized which I like and still carry. The knurling on the A6 is tighter so less shine.

The Mini in silver looks CHEAP and on mine you can see the grinding / buffing marks. Definitely non anodized aluminium.

Looks like crap, works like a dream except the battery voltage reading is .5v too low. fully charged 4.2 v reads 3.7 v.

Charging circuitry works correctly for the 26650 that comes with which measured 5670 mah on my Opus 3100 V2.2, a Samsung 40T and 30Q.

Mine rides in a Ultrafire holster I picked up at Banggood years ago for my BLF X6 SE/Astrolux S2 which is still in the box.

Mine came with the AUX LEDs set too dim to see on the low mode. Had to take the top off and adjust the trimmers. Just gently turn each one to see what it does then return it the original setting.
Once you know what each does adjust them how you want.
I’m sure there are instructions in here somewhere but they can be hard to find.

I prefer to change the settings in lockout mode at first as it’s easier. Once you know how, do the normal mode.
Off – 4 quick clicks for lockout then 3 quick clicks advances to the next mode each time you do it. That sets the AUX LED mode in lockout.
Off – 7 quick clicks in normal mode advances the AUX LED mode each time you do it. That sets the AUX LED mode in normal operation.

There are trimmers on the board that are labelled, you need to adjust them with a small screwdriver

https://www.taschenlampen-forum.de/threads/astrolux-mf01-mini-mateminco-...

Translation:

“It even says it on the board:

‘Low’ for red
‘High’ for green
D1 blue
D2 pink

Unfortunately Astrolux set the trimmer values far too high and the LED resistance too low, it’s hardly possible to set up ‘bright’.”

That makes me glad that silver was unavailable when I ordered mine, so I just chose plain black, same as my MF01s.

I’d say “If they can’t see you they can’t shoot you” but then I’d have a different flashlight. Actually . . .

Because I prefer the low mode as it’s plenty bright to find the switch. My way, if for some reason I want the high I can choose it.

Wish the AUX LEDs could be off with just the switch lit. High, low, breathe, off.

Life’s about choices. I like all I can get. It’s why I left the USA years ago.

Little freedom left there when I left and none now so I’m told by almost everyone returning from there.

That’s what I hear every time I go to the local VFW for some beers and talk.

Oh no. It looks like I have to cancel my silver order if possible and just go straight to full copper.

I also have same issue with the voltage indicator. Mine is 0.2V off.

Thanks for sharing!!! I have been tempted to go for the Mini in silver as I really liked how it looked in the Banggood pictures where it has a darker, richer look. However another picture online showed it to be much a lighter silver which I too thought looked “cheap”. Your confirming this has saved me the disappointment I think you feel. Hope you find someone you can sell/gift yours to and then pick up a better colour. I’m going to finally pull the trigger on the gun metal grey.

This sounds good news to me! I loved the bare al A6… and was very disappointed by the clear ano L6 which looked like a fake silver plastic toy to me.
