I got mine today.
It came DHL, though I dont think I selected that option?
Anyway, initial thoughts are outstanding !
Charging batteries for full effect now.
I did not notice any change from ramped max, then double click for turbo.. that is 80 up to 100% …?
I shall try fresh batteries

Again, thanks guys!


Going from 2 to 2.5 amps the difference is going be be hard to see with the eye. Going to have to look at something on the fringes of the GT’s range to see a difference with the naked eye.

He obviously didn’t charge batteries that came with GT , at 3,5V you cant really see any difference….

Not sure if i should fork the cash & order a second one in case the first one i ordered don’t arrive.

Why would you think it won’t arrive? Is it sarcasm that your waiting too long or do you think it might get lost in shipping?

If it gets lost I’m sure Neal will make it right.

Thank you very much! Can’t wait for my new toy!

There’s no replacement for displacement.

stinks to see all these new people still signing up for their first light last min.

Why? It seems like a good thing to me. Not everyone will stick around, but some will.

Are you saying they should have done it sooner?

I’m confused by what you said.

I noticed a slight change.

But I agree it would be really hard to see if you aren’t looking for it, well if you were looking for it and expect more of a change then it really is, then it could be hard to miss.

This was with only 4 30Q batteries at 3.9v. The 8 35E are still charging. Sad

I tried a ceiling bounce.
Ramped all the way, 160 lumen.
Turbo, 175 lumen.
It’s pretty hard to see with your eyes, but the meter shows it.

Coyotehawk will add your names to his sign up list. You’ll see your name when he does the next update. It will be sometime mid January when you are emailed with the details of where to go and how to order. (Uses PayPal, btw)

You can also buy 8 of the Samsung 35E batteries for $40 at the same time as you buy the light. No sign up necessary for those. There are plenty of batteries in stock. Just add them at checkout.

Welcome to BLF, new members.

Ps, for everyone else, THE GROUP BUY IS STILL OPEN, BUT CLOSES TONIGHT! If you want one, say so in this thread so you will be included. Price is $157 shipping included. After that it could be $250 or whatever price Lumintop decides on.

All the latest updates are in post #1.

Just so people are aware, if we should happen to run out of the first 1500 lights (I doubt that will happen, but it is possible), there will be no guarantees for those over 1500. Although we will try to get lumintop to honor them with the next batch they are under no obligation to do so.

At the current rate of drop-outs we can except around 200-250 people to drop out (so the list could get to 1700-1750 people and still have enough, in theory), so this should not be a problem but I want to give fair warning since so many people are singing up here on the last day.

The alternative option is I close the GB right now and no one even gets a shot at the cheaper price. I figured people would at least like a shot at the GB price.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but please add me to the list. I’ve been enjoying my Q8 way too much, so hopefully I’ll find a use for this one. Besides introducing everyone in the neighborhood to BLF.

Along with many others, I’m sure, I do have a slight feeling of apprehension. I found myself at #1280 on the list and waited patiently. A couple of weeks went by and got an email saying to pay. Did so, got the reply from PayPal and a note from Neal asking for BLF name and phone number. Sent those in with the PayPal transaction number. I have not seen a PM to me at all during the entire time I’ve been waiting and lurking, and no further emails at all.

With the group buy closing and so many new orders, are there those that have paid as I have but have no forum PM to back up their claim? Will we get passed by?

Nearly biting my nails, here!

Just got my light today.01/02/18 thank you,thank you,thank you.I’m number 1036 on the list and payed on December 15th.No batteries and shipped DHL.Did not get a email to confirm order or any thing from DHL about shipping.It just showed up.I live in Iowa center of USA.Just putting this out there to show every one even if you don’t hear anything as long as your payment goes threw pay pal,they are working on it and you will get one.

I’m #261, paid 12/1, and still haven’t received anything. I’m in Portland Oregon/West coast…

Purchased with 8 cells.

No lights have been shipped with batteries yet AFAIK

Came home, GT was sitting at front door. Works great!

Not comfortable using it in the neighborhood – people may think they have prowlers immediately outside their windows if the beam hits a house. Beam reminds me of using a magnifying glass on the sun – quite bright against the surroundings!

It may not get used as much as my other lights, but this is my favorite.
