I suggested this when the project started but they were hard set on keeping the basic size and shape of the first MF01.
I had to beg for them to make it a little longer so it could fit some extra fins and a thicker shelf.
Also, 21700’s in a quad cell light are not something I am supper hip on as the battery tube becomes to big it would be uncomfortable to hold for most people. So in practical terms it would need to step down to a 3 cell light and that would cause complications with the carrier since the light runs in 2S2P.
A special edition copper version of the light is also possible with enough interest, they seemed open to a lot of custom versions if I could prove there was enough interest. They just have not told me how much interest is needed.
okok, i just think keeping the same size while on papers increasing lumens that much isnt maybe so good idea but what do i know xd, i mean that much lumens needs a bigger host imo but ofc this is they who decide, i can only try think a little bigger wouldnt hurt. im sure this will be a bestseller tho like the previous one which i like alot.
I said the same thing, I had to fight for the little change they did allow. This is why the thermal protection is so important. Left unchecked it will get WELL over 100C. I would stop the tests at ~105c but it was still climbing.
I will say it is a potent light as it is. With Narsil ramping it is far more usable then it was in the old version. Plus the parasitic drain is 1/20th of the old light (~200ua vs 5000ua, although that is before the auxled’s which have not been tested yet).
