4k - Astrolux MF01 Mini UVC - Germicidal Flashlight - Best Value 2020

Astrolux MF01 Mini UVC lamp is quite interesting. However, UVC rays will be harmful. If you are not able to use this lamp properly as well as UVC light, you should not buy this product.
At $ 58, it’s great for me to disinfect water when camping if I accidentally use spring water. Or disinfecting masks, phones …

Very interesting light. I would be interested to see if you could confirm the UV-C output.
A simple test shown here:

Could be used to check.
Thank you for your review.
All the Best,
Jeff

Hi vietnamreviews, thanks for the video about the MF01-Mini-UVC, there are almost no reviews of this flashlight on the Internet.

I recently just got this model, but I'm not sure if the unit is faulty or not, mainly because, the flashlight I got is very weak (comparing to other UV lights, such as the Convoy S2+ UV or Sofirn SP31UV = although I understand the MF01-Mini-UVC uses a different UV frequency, so they may not be directly comparable).

 

The included manual lists that there are 3 "levels" for the UV light, Level 1, 2 & 3.

I did not try looking at the light directly, but shine the light on some stuff - there "seem" to be only 2 levels when I click the button.
(I understand it could be the objects I'm shining may not react to the UVC light... so I decided to measure tailcap current.

I got these results using Uni-T UT210E amp meter to measure the tailcap current:
Level 1: 0.17A
Level 2: 0.30A
Level 3: 0.33A

There is basically very little difference between Level 2 and Level 3, which explains why I cannot "see" the difference.

I'm wondering, is Level 3 supposed to be still weak? Or maybe the unit I got is faulty?

Would you be able to check the tailcap current for your MF01-Mini-UVC on Level 1, 2 & 3?
