UPDATE:

The replacement fan handle for my Astrolux MF05 from BangGood finally arrived after nearly 2 months of back and forth with BangGood customer services. However, the fan handle slide that’s slides into the slot on the light was damaged. I had to file off the damage portion of the slide to make it fit. And the tail cap spring was detached. I was able to reattach it.

 

Quality control, Quality control, Quality control!!!


All good now. Fan works: 3 quick clicks on, 2 quick clicks to change modes, 1 long click to turn off.


For those of you who have experienced that same issue, here's a video that I used to convince BangGood and Astrolux there was an issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtu9nRiODSk

Just a note, those are not max ratings, those are continuous ratings.

I have a windmill 1 mile away. Visible during day but can’t quite see it at night with mf04. Maybe time to try with binoculars

The MF04 should be able to light up something a mile away. I shined mine on a water tower at that distance and I could see it getting lit up.
If you have a tripod, aim the light at the windmill, and then step to the side so the beam doesn’t block your view. Then use binoculars or a camera with a long exposure to view it like I did for my water tower photos from two miles away.

I will have to take out the binos and try again,I didn’t use a tripod either. the windmill is white colored but may be less visible depending on how its facing . Also wasn’t sure how much humidity would affect my ability to see it.
I’ve tried it at 50%, just thought it would be easier.

I ordered the light two days ago,and it is on its way to me now,so I ask what batteries should I use?
I think the old good 30Qs for the 18650s,but I don’t know which of the 21700 one to buy.
I ask,because the price range is huge,ie in NKON.nl. store,I see the price is between €3.45-€19.95.
Any suggestions please?

Of what I see in 21700, the best value in a high capacity cell is:

The fan battery does not need to be high drain.

Super high drain would be 30T

From what I remember, the fan uses a spring on both ends of the battery tube so a flat top should be fine.
