Okay, freshly charged Windyfire. It ran on Turbo right at 3:30 then stepped down in brightness. It was quite hot. I went back to Turbo and it stepped down after 30 seconds. So thermal management is doing it’s job.

Battery showed to be at 3.81 volts. 4 minutes of Turbo really puts a whooping on this 14500! Lol. It’s probably best to use the Top of Ramp instead of Turbo if you want much longer run times and cooler temps.

I decided to film it since I don’t think there’s many videos of the Micro. Why not?

I guess my Micro's bezel is glued up - can't budge it through normal means, like with a good pair of sticky gloves. Anyone else try yet?

Anyone know if they all have the bezels glued? It was supposed to be the same as the Mini - at least what Martin said here: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1464753#comment-1464753

I got 2 Mini's - both not glued at the bezel.

Both versions should have glued bezels. Unfortunately.

Now you guys got me think'n - did I break the seals on the 2 minis and clean them up? Maybe I should check my notes. Right now, the 2 minis are hand tightened and threads clean. One I bought from Neal - not sure bout the other one, so maybe that was a sample?

There's no way I can remember... frown

I received my GT Mini CW last week and the bezel is unglued, thankfully because the gasket around the LED was out of place giving a little off-center hot-spot…

For statistics…
I have two Mini, both NW.
The first, from Neal, bought on 16.07.2018.
The second, from BG, 14.09.2018.
None has the bezel glued (very tight but no glue).

Maybe some of the assembly people ran out of threadlocker, but still needed to keep working? Maybe it is just random.

Huh, we are talking about threadlocker on bezel.

Wait, are you saying the bezel was unglued but still extremely tight?

Yes… No glue on bezel. I was shocked actually b3cause with all the reports that the bezels were glued I thought I’d wreck the light.

In my Mini (both) it was necessary to use strap wrenches but the threads were free of glue.
They were as tight as in the BLF GT (the “Giggles”).

Oddly I was able to open up my GT70 bezel with no problems either.

I did just get my GT Micro from the DHL truck this morning. I ordered it with the KeepPower 1000mAh cell from Neal’s; pretty quick shipping from confirmation to delivery. Have the cell charging now; can’t wait to try it out!

Ordered and payed feb23 from Neal, nothing happened since, no light sent out for a month Sad
As one of the very first enthousiasts for this light it is a bit more difficult than normal to stick to my motto with chinese purchases “it comes when it comes”.

I ordered mine a few days later than you. I sent him an email 2 days ago asking if my order had gone through, I received an email from him the next day saying it had and a shipping email not long after.

I’m happy for you that yours is shipped but should not take an email to get the ball rolling of course. When the gtmicro was announced available and I bought one, they should have been really available, this is not how it should be.

This is bad... Mine was ordered the same day and have had it for almost a week now.

I just mentioned your order to Neal - hope to hear back, maybe not til this eve.

Very weird… I ordered the day Martin announced they were ready for sale at Neal’s. Really wasn’t in a rush to get it, so I was pleasantly surprised when I got the confirmation email last week. I was also expecting snail mail, until I got a DHL notification. Possible issues fulfilling orders or just getting them produced?

Started playing around with mine. I do like the ramping UI a lot, as I was introduced to it with the GT and GT70 and then Mini. Must resist the temptation to tinker with it, as I end up doing with all my lights….

As usual there is no pattern in which order they were sent out. That is fine with me, I know no better after 6 years on the forum. Thanks Tom for mentioning my order to Neal, that is good for me, Neal may have a look into it and make sure I’m on the next batch. Smile But not good for someone else who did not complain and will move one spot down the list.

Well, it could be argued that they were not meant to be as high on the list as they were anyway, if you ordered before them.

Neal emailed me about the mixup, asked about specifics on the E07 I got in place of my two GT Micro’s. He never said anything back to me after I gave him the Fireflies light specifics but I have a notification that I have a DHL from Hong Kong which is almost certainly these replacements. Due here tomorrow. I suppose when Neal gets more pertinent information he will share some of it with me as to what to do with this E07…

My email confirmation of the order is also dated Feb 23rd…
