Im a little salty about not knowing when the units with batteries will ship at the same time I’m pretty excited to see all the beam shots and maybe some videos going up this weekend

I was wondering why I hadn’t received any emails regarding the GT, but I ordered eight cells with mine so I assume that’s why. I’m not in a big hurry so no big deal.

I think the GT GB thread reopened. 

See you all over there.

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.

Where in WI are you Lawallac? I live a little north of Eau Claire and it was -16F at my place this morning.

What documentation is included in the box?
A manual and a cheat cheat sheet or only the manual?

That’s weird because one of the delays was for the manual. Maybe for the web manual? Isn’t there a barcode thing to scan inside of tail cap?

You mean a square, crypto currency style, etched inside, yes.

I live just a little north of Marshfield and work out near Wausau. It seems like a real warmup when it’s like -8 or -9 compared to where it has been. When it gets into the really low temps, it’s the dryness in the air that I notice so much.

Did you not get anything? There should be a small manual like I pictured in my recent unboxing included with the light.

Yes that thing, also should be a physical manual in the box. TA just replied now. We’ll let him answer this. Thumbs Up

Nope. But it doesn’t matter, it seems to work similar to the Q8.

My light came with a single sheet of A4 paper printed on both sides, folded into quarters.

Here are two .JPG scans. I reduced the dimensions a bit to allow for printing on letter-sized (8.5×11”) paper.


The first QR code on panel 8 of the manual leads to this thread.

The second QR code on panel 8 of the manual leads to Lumintop’s homepage.

The QR code inside the tailcap also leads to Lumintop’s homepage, although it’s different than the one in the manual.

It even has the Lumintop bunny in the middle! Party

FWIW, Lumintop’s support page doesn’t appear to have a .PDF manual for the GT yet.

Dhl was just here!!!

I got a user manual with it, like 8.5×11 piece of paper folded into a an accordion shape.

CHECK YOUR BATTERY CARRIERS, WHEN I LIFTED THE TOP ONE THERE WAS A SCREW SITTING THERE THAT WAS NOT PUT IN.
I put it in with a 2mm allen wrench and checked the others, the rest were fine and tight.

I GOT NOTHING

Earlier today I received this text message from DHL. (I’m in the US.)

I’m sitting here, one eye on the computer and one eye on the driveway.

@cccpull
Ups, there should be at least a manual.

@TA
is there a link for Gt-owners to download the manual?
Is the support thread for the GT ready?

I got 2 O-rings, which are better than a manual. Thumbs Up

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

Thanks for the heads-up. Had one in the cupboard and it works great as a diffuser.

The manual was posted someplace. I think in Steels thread.

The support thread is not quite ready yet. My getting sick for the last week threw a wrench in those plans. Tom said he was going to finish updating the Narsil manual for the thread soon as well.

Hopefully the support thread should be active in a week or so if all goes well.

I got a text saying it was going to be delivered today around 2pm, no estimated time of delivery, around 3 I got a voicemail from the delivery guy saying he can’t make it up my hill, and to call him back. Called him back, left a message, and called about 4 more times and no answer. Got back into town around 4, and passed the DHL van about 3 miles from my house…

Thanks, you’re right.

User steel_1024 posted a Google Drive .PDF link to the printed manual in this thread.

Someone or two mentioned their package getting forwarded to the post office for final delivery. Add me to that list, and I’ll be waiting until next week too. Maybe Monday since the post office works over the weekend.

The low mode should be lower.

Thanks!

Mine is the XL

The 27th DHL accepted the package in Hong Kong. On my doorstep in Michigan on the 29th. Doesn’t get much better than that.
