    Hi Vinh,

    Does that mean we have to wait a while before receiving more MT90vn+'s?

    I ordered enough for all of the pendings orders so if you placed an order they should be build and ship soon.

    I am going to order another batch after this but I haev to get caught up first. This light takes forever to build.

    All pending orders should be shipped Saturday or Monday at the latest :-)
    With my vision mostly back I am working around the clock to catch up.

    By the way. This is definitely one of those rare light that i want two for myself. One I am going to bring around in my truck just to show off and another I am going to stack away for SBT100.

    I just ordered a second Mateminco MT90vn+, since it is such an amazing light.

    When I have been walking around the neighborhood with it, a couple people said I looked like Rambo. Others thought it was a military device of some type.

    By the way, what is the SBT100 (SBT-100)? I am assuming it is an upcoming LED, but can't find any matches on CandlePowerForums.

    MT90vn+ just broke the 3Mcd mark. Now I can call this a 3Mcd light! :-)

    Larger shorter wires + a bad ass battery carrier is mandatory!

    Are those custom made or just updated battery carriers from Mateminco?

    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    As promised I should be able to finish and ship all the MT90vn+ today and ship them tomorrow. These lights are soem of the most time consuming lights to build. I take every measure I can to get the most performance out of each. I hope it will be an enjoyable collectible for all.


    My visions has gotten rapidly better. Things from afar are very sharp. I would say 90% there. But things upclose are still blurry. May be 80%. The more I use it the more blurry my eyes becomes. I have to take quite a few breaks nowadays. If I forget to drink lots of water the next morning opening my eyes is like rubbing the lids on sand paper. Real painful...I was told from other PRK patients that this is all normal. I will just drink much more water than thirsts demand for now hahaha. Hopefully I will get use to this new habit.

Gotta step down when the light is not even warm is not fun and does not fittting for the size of the light. With a light this big its nice to be able to run Turbo for as long as the battery allows.
    No flashlight manufacturer ever says Turbo duration, especially when it's just about 1-2 minutes. Mateminco is no exception, in fact in the MT90+ the duration of the turbo is just 90 seconds, after which the thermal protection reduces abruptly the output in order to protect the driver and the LED. Of course a longer Turbo would be more appealing to customers but then why does the manufacturer limit it to such a short time? The only reason is that the manufacturer does not want excessive heat to damage the flashlight.

    MT90vn+ Spec 3 allows for continuous turbo. Also, Vihn states: "With a light this big its nice to be able to run Turbo for as long as the battery allows." I think this is a chimera! You can run Turbo for as long as the flashlight temperature allows you to hold the light! And this time is not that longer than the Turbo runtime of the stock driver.

    Since the Acebeam K75 has a turbo of just 90 secs, I bought the K75vn with the driver VNX2 which allows to the Turbo to run continuously. Good, but after only 150 secs of the turbo, the light is so hot that you cannot hold it! So I spent an extra $110 just to gain 60 seconds! Bah... continuous Turbo is just a dream with high output lights.

    You pay $110 for:
    - 60s additional seconds of turbo until light is too hot from room temp. Could be longer if you are outside in colder environmental or if the light was used the in the rain which searchlights are intended for. The stock light step down to protect the driver. VNX2 allow you to decide when you want to step down to protect yourself. The electronics can in fact run NONSTOP without damage.

    - Sky Lumen Warranty with USA service

    - 500 Lumen and 200Kcd increased in peak performance (These specs are without De-Lens which could add another 5% on top)

    - User programmable interface

    - The ability to run 1, 2, 3 or 4 cells

    - Safest battery configuration possible

    Fan instruction from the factory. They claim there are no FOREVER lock out.


    The fan UI: 3 clicks to turn on, long press to turn off.


    4 clicks to battery check, 5 clicks to lockout and unlock


    6 clicks to lockout, only physically power off to exit like unscrew the tailcap

    Vinh,

    Are there instructions on how to set the fan speed?

    I now have two Mateminco MT90vn+'s. The fan speed is low on the first one, and high on the second one. So I suspect there is a way to change the fan speed.

    Vinh,

    The fan in the Mateminco fan handle blows harder (with much more air and sound) than the fan in the Astrolux.
