Jason” I don’t think you have to keep up anymore. TA said earlier the GB ended at 12:00 midnight Central Time Friday 1-5-2018.

That was almost 2 hours ago…… Unless he revised his statemeng from earlier.

Jason, you can follow deadline that’s set. This is very successful groupbuy that last for very long. And Lumintop needs to make money too.
Of course that’s your or project team call.

cool i'll see you when you get there

I am waiting to send out anymore PM’s until all the existing orders are (almost) complete. So not to worry, there will not be any cutting in line.

Now the next set of PM’s could be a first come, first served basis if we should happen to sell all 1500 but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

*There are only a few hours left till the GB closes. Say 3 hours so it ends at midnight central standard time.

It’s pretty hard to see with your eyes, but the meter shows it.

yeah its not but a tick brighter, but the meter def shows it
quick snip here with the gt bounced off ceiling, then the tn42 for comparison


Yours is from 183 to 198, it’s also less than 10%. So it confirms it is normal. Just to know more about GT before it reach me.
I am not complaining here. It proves that XHP35 HI is definitely driven very hard and give us 1.2Mcd of throw. Cool

cool i'll see you when you get there

That’s just color commentary. Lol. The last 8 or 10 hours were pretty hectic. Now it seems dead.

I was expecting him or someone to say it’s over. So I don’t know exactly who from the last group of people are in or out. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

I think the group buy has ended. Maybe your names can be added if we have less than 1500 purchases. They will be recorded here if needed.

You guys will be included. It should be about mid January when you’ll get your emails showing where and how to pay.

I think the Group Buy is officially closed

Now we can yap about other stuff. Shipping, etc…

I noticed that Lumintop were nice enough to machine little notches around the switch pcb mount to make it easy to slip it through. No filing needed to add them. They even added grooves to center the leds vertically or horizontaly. That’s classy right there.

I’m hoping…. No DHL notice but looking at my USPS Informed Delivery account, there’s a DHL handoff to USPS. If this is it, I could possibly get it tomorrow but probably Monday.

Order List – 818, 819, 886,
Paid List (556-10xx) – #47
USA
2 with Batts, 1 without

I assume each of my ordered lights should show up separately with separate tracking? Has anyone got multiple lights in one shipment/box?


my 2 came in separate boxes, but same shipment and tracking number

I verified that these are the correct size switch covers for the GT. http://www.kaidomain.com/p/S025149.12mm-D-x-7_5mm-H-Silicone-Tailcaps-Bl...

Now the only problem is finding them in a clear color. I can’t find any!

Anyway, pm me when it is ready (and please, be professional, don’t forget my tracking number Angry )

You don’t have to worry about accidental activation when pocket carrying.

Could you put me down for a second one for my wife if someone backs out or does not pay etc?

I know it probably too late but hope someone backs out so I can get her one.

I am very lucky because my wife likes flashlights as much as I do. I was watching her empty out her purse and was very surprised that she had 8 flashlights in there and even some extra batteries. I think she has the bug worse than me.

I had thought that she probably thought I was crazy because of how much I like flashlights. But was so happy when I found out she likes them as much as I do.
