[♛ FreemeGB] ASTROLUX MF06 CREE High Power Flashlight with Active Cooling - Not Quite there Yet

That Microfire looks really good. Would be cool if they just update those with modern emitters.

I’m not sure they are still in business. Their website works, but does not seem to be updated since 2017.

Any more info?


Probably after MF05? There are quite a lot of work needed from their prototype.



I know that months ago you told us that the project was put on hold but … could you ask Astrolux if they has made any progress? No matter how small it is. I hope don’t hear that the project has been canceled.


Almost forgot about this. Any updates?

Nothing worth showing at the moment.

Maybe once MF05 starts shipping we will get an update?



Is MF04 body not suitable for some reason? will it ever get a new emitter?
Don’t get why MF02 got sbt90 but they had to change body for MF04 to MF05?

They didn’t change the body they just changed the name only.

Head and body are completely different… MF04 vs MF05

compare to MF04

Oh, you want to know why they went with a bigger head and air cooling for a SBT-90.2 light instead of just putting that led into the existing MF04 body. I got mixed up.

I can only speculate that they wanted to build something better than the GT 90. Something that stood out and got attention.

I suppose a modder could convert an MF04 by swapping the LED in, replacing the driver with a FET unit and converting the carrier to 3 volt.

My assumptions are that the MF04 cant handle a SBT90.2 very well, where a GT is somewhat over dimensioned.
The MF04 is a lot lighter, which means less material, less thermal mass, less fins, less of everything, check the difference

Your thinking the existing MF04 body could not handle the heat for very long?

Astrolux did make a MF02 version which is smaller. Lumintop even made a single 21700 version of the FW3A Pro light. So Astrolux could certainly put it in the MF04 head and it would work. Maybe they talked about their decision in a MF05 thread. It’s not likely to be mentioned here.
