I discovered a budget-friendly GT cap in the pantry. Walmart’s ‘Great Value’ brand quick oats, 42 oz size.

It’s a perfect fit, and even creates an air bubble between the cap and lens if you don’t ‘burp’ it. Big Smile

I’ll adhere a circle of soft cloth inside it to further protect the lens from contact with the cap.

That’s awesome! Definitely using it!

I doubt they paid the extra for Sat delivery, but who knows. Really nice of Lumitop to send it so expedited. Going to be a lot of people waiting for the dark. Should be nice and dry air around here since it’s been so cold. It was -20F earlier this week coming into work and as low as -18 this morning. Very dry indeed.

Just got mine! Haven’t opened it yet (I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas)

I received the first text from DHL on Wednesday the 27th at noon, it just got delivered today Friday the 29th around noon. Talk about fast shipping!

Ps, I live in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA.

They are showing up in Houston. I got mine at about 11:30AM here.

I’ve noticed that the beacon modes do a double blink instead of a single blink.

The wrap around feature is very nice, too.

It’s quite warm looking to me even though they call it NW. I’m gonna wait till I test it our at night before I order a cooler temp emitter.

I noticed that the 2 green leds in the switch are not equal in brightness. I plan to swap these out anyway.

Does anyone else’s lense make a “tink” sound every now and then? It’s a bit strange.

How you guys seeing an estimated delivery date? Mine is in a city an hour and a half away. If I can drive out there and pick it up today instead of waiting until next week, I’ll do it. I have other things to do there anyway.

The low mode should be lower.

DHL tracking just changed from “Arrived at delivery facility in Austin – USA” to “Forwarded for delivery”. Googling what “Forwarded for delivery” with DHL means, brought up results saying things like the package has been forwarded to another carrier for delivery. Earlier this year I had an Armytek headlight delivered to me from Canada by a DHL Express courier. Anyone else seeing “Forwarded for delivery” in their tracking results?

I also wondered about this.

I never saw an ‘expected delivery date’ on DHL’s tracking page or in the email updates they sent me.

My updates never included a delivery date either. Last web update says it is with delivery courier. Then I received a text message saying that it would be delivered by end of day, today!

DHL Express has passed my light off to the USPS….are you kidding me! Now I won’t get the light until sometime next week. My opinion of DHL has dropped significantly.

Mine arrived, bigger than I thought and heavier too. There is a lot of dust on the reflector Iam a little disappointed in that.

You ARE in hill country. Maybe DHL thought you were too far for their delivery driver to go?

DHL Express delivered a headlight to me earlier in the year shipped from Canada. So it’s not like they never make it out here to the sticks. But yeah, I’m sure that had something to do with it.

I gave DHL my house address since that’s where I expected delivery, but since the USPS will be delivering the package, they have my wrong address. I get mail at the post office box, not at my home address.

Same here, maybe a little bit more because I was going to get MJ1s for the same price state side. Tired

Still glad they are shipping out LOL

Yeah, all those worry warts on the GT thread. Jeez. It will get to everyone eventually. You just have to be patient. Silly

Maybe SB should close those big threads every now and then. It sure is calm right now. Lol
