Yeah, a GT Collector’s Pack , such as DavidEF mentioned; with “a nice collectable store/display/carry case” would probably be Way “North of 4 Benji’s”. . Cash . Wink

Most companies now days seem opposed to actual names for things, I don’t understand it at all. Like you I prefer real names for things.

As crazy as things are in the world today, they probably fear offending someone or something. . Facepalm

That’s sad in my book….. Sad

I don't think it's about offending anyone, more like trademarks, copyrights, and the associated BS. How many names can you come up with for a flashlight, and can you re-use something that went away 10 years ago? I don't know the legalize of the matter but it's a pain for sure.

The MBI HF uses this small cell, it gives a direct drive high level at just over 3A, falls fast of course but it IS a viable emergency option. Wink

Actually, I think it would be a great marketing tool to first offer those ONLY in the Collector’s Pack. Then wait a while before opening them up for individual sale. That way, the Collector’s Pack gets pushed more, because it will be the only way to get the whole set! (for a while) Wink

Uh, yeah I forgot to insert an emoji… Although I’m sure interest for GT Femto would be rather high…

As a lurker before joining, I never understood GigaThrower (which I assume GT came from) as that would assume 1 billion candela. Mega Thrower (MT) probably would be the more appropriate name! The Carlisle Finch 2500W searchlight does 177 million candela; even that wouldn’t be a true GigaThrower! The Luxor SkyBeam is about 40 billion candela – a true giga-thrower! Maybe we could develop the TeraThrower (BLF-TT!)

At least we know the naming protocol has a lot of headroom! Big Smile

As far as the “scale…” I’m < joking, but > serious…

To note, past Femto we have Atto. and past Tera we have Peta and Exa, guaranteeing at least 6 more names in the series!

Sounds like the potential for at least 400,000 more arguments as to which emitter to put in them, amongst other things… Facepalm

I just got my prototype GT micro in yesterday and I have to say, I like it. A nice little pocket thrower.

The throw ratings they gave are spot on what I got, I got 52kcd and 457m of throw on my sample.

Although the lumens are a bit lower, I got 900 lumens dropping to ~800. They are using VERY thin LED wires right now though and the tailcap springs could be a bit lower resistance.

I told them to use 24awg wire on the LED, that should bump the output up some so it could be rated at 850-900 lumens (technically it could now but that is not how I do things).

The thermals are surprisingly good as well, Took quite some time for it to heat up enough to thermal throttle and by that point the cell was at the point of LVP, so not sure which one it was that caused it to step down but think it might of been the LVP.

I have to say, it looks pretty good for a prototype.

Nice news. I did hope for a bit better than 52 kcd, but I did not base that on anything precise. What is the (used) reflector diameter?

And a few pictures are always welcome Smile

I will measure the reflector in a bit.

Yeah, I am going to take some pictures, just not on the right computer to edit/upload them right now.
