Payment sent, I’m 131 on the list but 123 in the PM.. 123 seems like a placeholder… I wasn’t sure so I put “123(131?)” in my message to Neal, haha.

Is there a list of person to PM for the second group buy? Wish I had jumped into the first one now… kinda kicking myself. I have absolutely ZERO use for a light like this… but I want it like I can’t even explain! lol. It would fulfill all desires for a thrower light for almost all time.

I’ve never spent more than $30 on a flashlight…. this would be unprecedented.


Please do not feel any pressure, it is just another light Wink you’ll survive without it Wink
Only when you feel comfortable do it, no problem not getting this, it is not cheap.

Yes will update list later, also removal requests Wink
See above Wink

I also had that question, Sp5it. I’ve sent a PM to the Miller, but he hasn’t replied yet.

Yes sorry, I am enjoying a pleasant evening with friends from the USA and we have just finished our second bottle of high end Bordeaux Grand Cru. The phone is buzzing with emails for PMs and 100 new posts here, I had to excuse myself to respond in the thread, will do the PMs tomorrow Wink

What if i pay the first payment and for some reasons i pay the second or last payment late?

If no second payment ia made you’ll be refunded minus the fees.

Wow thanks all, TA and others for answering questions and all for general positive vibe.
It sure is exciting to see this strange payment stuff unfold. Thanks for kind words and trust!

89 is half of 118? Must be some Chicago math in there somewhere… just sayin.

89 and 118 are just diameters.
The area of the reflector is calculated by pi*r^2 – center circle.
The GT has a reflector approximately twice as big as the TN42, this is how we did theoretical lux estimates before we even had the light.

This is pretty cool……. Thumbs Up

Two questions…..

  • 1. Is this payment due within 5 days of receiving PM?
  • 2. Is GT list now closed for 1st request lights at $111 price?

Couldn’t be easier. From my perspective it worked fine! Kudus!

Tip: print out the first page of the PM and go over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything required is in the paypal message. Those who can’t print stuff out, so sad, use pen and paper.

Yes, if you do not want to loose your spot then you need to pay the down payment within the next 5 days.

The first 555 will most assuredly be filled with people on the list so the chances of getting one for $111 are behind us but anyone can still get as many as they want for $150.

The GB is still open until we say otherwise, as far as I know the GB will remain active until Giggles is officially for sale and shipping.

So tell your friends! They can all still get a Giggles for themselves!

I forgot to write my real name in the address at the paypal comment. Is it OK to send to somebody of the GT team in a PM?

I wound not worry about the number discrepancy at this point people. Just use the number from the PM, Miller and Neal both got the same PM’s you did and should be able to figure it out from there.

As long as your user name is correct in the payment they can cross referance things fairly easy. Plus the really important payment will be later when the orders are actually made, this is kind of a first test of the entire process and getting the list numbers correct is something to be addressed for sure.

That should be ok at this point, you will be sending your address again for the final payment I am sure anyways.

We are using this down payment as a bit of a test for the final payment. Obviously there are some things that will need to be reworked before then so it is a good thing we are doing this!

Yup, it didn’t ask for name and address only address.
