Review: Astrolux S1 3D Flashlight

You’ll find some YouTube’s review with a guide on how to change modes

Hi, can I know where you bought it from? I bought the S2+ SMO reflector from Simon when I ordered the clear C8, but it hasn’t arrived yet. Hope it’ll fit.

Just received (Banggood) the Astrolux S1 Combo (18650 & 18350) in black. And a Red Astrolux S1 18350 joins my Blue Astrolux S1 18350. All have the A6 firmware and Wight driver. All of mine are XP-L with 3D color temp.

I’m running a VTC6 20amp cell in the 18650 tube and AW IMR 18350 800 mAh 12 amp cells in the 18350 tubes. The performance of the AW 18350 12amp cells is fantastic-equal output level on turbo as when running with the 20A VTC6. Great results with these cells! At $25 for the 18350 versions or $29 for the combo versions, these lights are a steal.

I receive mine this week in blue and a 3d tint, this is crazy cool stuff but I don’t like the clip !

I ordered one recently and have been using it for about a month. I really like this light and wished I bought one sooner. It’s a bit too long for pocket carry, but it has a permanent place in my laptop bag. I just ordered some Efest 18350 V1 IMR 800mAh batteries and if they last a decent amount of time, I may permanently use the shorter tube and leave the NCR18650GA batteries for my other lights.

I like the seven modes and can quickly and easily get to a usable level for any task. The beam is great. Large hotspot and floody beam are just what I like. Neutral white looks very good too.

I agree about the clip being not so great. I’ve got to take the tips to my grinder as they stick out way too far. I’ve got an inexpensive sheath for it from BangGood so it’s not an issue most of the time. I keep the clip on in case I need to quickly clip it to a pocket, but it lives in the sheath most of the time.

I doubt I’ll mod it in any way other than the clip. It’s bright enough for me. It’s floody but throws as far as I’d want it to for my aging eyes. I’m glad that I got it over a Convoy S2. I wasn’t sure which model S2 to get, but don’t have to compromise because I can get this one as bright as the most powerful S2+ but still have a wide variety of steps to suit any situation I’m likely to be in.

I also bought that same part from Simon on Aliexpress. I placed the order on 11/26/2016, still waiting for it. It looks like it should fit.

Guys for a week ive been watching a lot of youtube video of the Olight s1r turboS wish I bought tonight, I also have this astrolux s1 3D and im asking wish one is better , off course by specs the astrolux should beat the olight but dont know why I had to buy the Olight anyway !

Hi, just recently received mine and the emitter and the driver looks exactly like yours. I was under the assumption that a XP-L HI doesn’t have such a domed led? Compare with my C8 clear an the LED is larger and more flat on the C8 compared to the S1?

Could it be that BG sold you fake CREE ?

Oh, really...

Is that why you ruded me, twice?

You are rude. Don’t cry too hard about it

Yeah, I'm really crying hard about your deliberate misuse of the Rude! button...

You might learn something.

Has anyone ever done runtimes for the various levels? I know that it depends on the battery, but just as a general guideline…

This light really punch quite a lot so with a regular cell you can expect about 60 mins of good runtimes

Good deal, do you have a 18650 version :slight_smile:

My astrolux S1 came with the white unmarked star. The LED is really tiny compared to my fake lattice brights.

Is this LED legit? The driver says alex wells but the star does not. It is copper though.

they run out of DTP star:P
it’s XP hd led, so the footprint is smaller than XM-l2 led, same size as XP-g2

So I shouldn’t worry then? I got the brown box and it says “test” in the bar code.

well, if you can, please post the image
i believe there is no astrolux fake yet

Sure, I can post pics.
