Neal has sorted, and provided a new tracking number-with FedEx…very quickly too in all fairness.

Probably worth dropping him a message if you’ve had a similar issue,
I know there was at least one other person who mentioned it earlier.


This is interesting news. I wonder why it’s not DHL? Does it say delivery will be within a few days?

Jason the UK have really strict restrictions at the moment in lithium cells. The single cells from banggood all seem to go snail mail and go across land. The air freight has bigger restrictions in place.

I know many people who have had issues legitimately shipping cells.

Are you telling me this in response to something that I said or asked? Because I’m a little confused by your statement.

ordering page is being checked by neal and shipping info added – i hope to send the mails to the participants tomorrow…

Looks good! Smile
Do you know whether the lens hood has a protective disc inside it like the LensCoat ones, or is it just the neoprene?
I already got the OpTech hoodie, which is very good. But if I get another I’d like the insert.
Will still get this for the bag. Great price and looks like a perfect snug fit.

Maybe DHL is too expensive for some countries,so they changed to FedEx only them.
If that is the case, it would be nice to know what countries will be diverted to FedEx?

Thanks
Nikola

I’m not sure what your asking, but each GT includes one of these screw in lanyard rings.

Lots of places sell similar items.

After reading some of the posts concerning the tint can anyone do a comparison of the 4000K XHP35 in the GT and a 4000K XPL HI V2 in say, an Emisar D1/D1S? For extra internet respect, maybe a beamshot comparison? Thanks in advance

Hi guys, I pre ordered the light and batteries, I need the paypal address to pay for my order. Can someone point it out or pm me? Thanks.

Fusion,

See post #5 on the first page. You are slated for the 3rd round of PMs.

Names Request 2017-12-01 PMs 2017-12-09 PMs 3rd round PMs
fusion_m8 1065 0 0 1

The 3rd round of PMs has not gone out yet, and probably won’t until the lights from the first two rounds have shipped. Last I heard the 3rd round of PMs may go out in February.

The PM will give you a link to a web page and password for the web page, not a paypal address.

chrisc must have missed quoting your post here:

Tuigali is in the United Kingdom hence chrisc’s reply.

———————————————————————————————

I had a look and here’s a few UK orders on the first paid list and the options selected:
chrisc 86 DHL no batteries
Jinx/Jeansy 62 DHL no batteries
Dydi92 418 DHL with batteries
Tuigali 591 DHL with batteries
bella-headlight 496 Registered no batteries
gravelmonkey 308 Registered no batteries
G0OSE 47 Registered no batteries
Essexman 412 Registered with batteries

If batteries are going to be an issue, am I better paying the extra $2.50 shipping and ordering them separately from M4DM4X?

UK buyers – please let us know how it goes with customs fees!

Yeah thanks I was getting annoyed at multi quote not working how it does on other forums.

You commented it being odd about it not being DHL
I commented that DHL is a bit iffy with cells in the UK

I messaged Neal about changing my shipping from registered to DHL yesterday morning. A few hours ago he responded that all US order should have shipped. Not sure if my shipping was changed, but at least all the US people still waiting (including me) at least have theirs on the way.

Comparing a 4000K tint in an XP-L to one in the XHP-35 wouldn’t be an apples to apples comparison as the binning is done differently.

With the 4 die XHP-35 the McAdams curve is used so with the 35 there is a blending of tints from the 4 dies. Hence, the binning would cover a broad range from 5A to 5D, including 5B and 5C.

With the XP-L, you would buy a specific bin, so the actual output tint would then be more purely based on one’s bin selection.

EDIT: Also worthy to note that the 4000K is only available, as indicated by the chart, in a 5-step binning, where the warmer 80 and 90 CRI emitters have a tighter 3-step offering that keeps the bin closer to the black body line.

They are trying to get all lights shipped. Seems to me they are trying pretty hard. I’m very glad it’s not MY nightmare, much much easier for me to sit on this side of the globe and mod lights. Big Smile
