12110 lux

30700 lux
Measuring done at approximately 10 meter distance at switch on.
Must say it is a quite a big difference in lux reading between my new flashlight and my old BLF GT cool white.

So you measured:

  • BLF GT:  1211 kcd (2201 meters)
  • MF05:     3070 kcd (3504 meters)

Not bad for the MF05!

It reminds me of Discovery One, bound for Jupiter. 

"Aim the MF05 at the pod bay doors, Hal." 

"I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."

“He has a light!!!”
“Ha nah that’s not a light, this is a light!!”

Freeme would it be possible to buy some reflectors? I would build a quad with 4 of these.

I just got mine, order #28 from  the freeme Banggood group buy. Thank you, freeme, Astrolux and Bangood!

Now for the hard part: Waiting nine hours for the dawn of the flashlight day.

What was your order and shipped dates? Mine was ordered on Jul 9th and shipped out on Aug 4th but tracking info shows nothing since then.

    The exact same thing happened with our MF05 as well. We got an update stating that it was preparing for shipment on August 8th, but no more updates after that.

We are the Light Commanders

My MF05 shipped on 12.08 and was 8 days later here in Germany. Tracking worked after five days and then it was real fast. China to Belgium to Germany.

Also no updates since the 7th for me (Processed Through Facility GUANGZHOU EMS, CHINA), hoping something pops up somewhere…

There was no updates on mine. Then I searched the tracking on my local post service it was at my local one.

Order submit: July 17, 2020.

Warehouse packed item: August 5, 2020.

Packaged sterilized and shipped out: August 6. Handed over to airlines: August 9. In and out of Customs in San Francisco: Aug 20 and 21.

Delivered to my door: August 24.

 

Also, please check to find the plastic lens protective cover and remove the plastic lens cover. There is a little tab that can be pulled to remove. There is no marking on it, so it took me a few moments to realize that it was there.

Please be sure to observe correct cell carrier polarity. Cells of like polarity are positioned adjacent, not opposite, as in some other battery carriers.

Tint on mine is not CW. Mine is definitely warm. I am not a tint issue person, but people who do not like CW should be pleased with the tint that came with my flashlight.

Seven more hours until flashlight time!

If i remember correctly, MF05 delivery date is actually faster than MF04. It was like over 2 months for second batch of MF04. cool

At a target 750 meters away, this light puts significantly more light on the target than the K75. It put a smile on my face.  Reflector diameter is larger, and the deeper reflector is a plus, too. Add additional power supply and additional heat sinking and heat dissipation, etc, and now my K75 is a Mini version of the new led throw standard. Thanks again, to everyone who made this landmark light a reality!

Furthest ridge is around 1.6km this light will compete with the lemax LX70 superpower.
