I was recently involved in a GB (of similar cost) where a significant number of lights were delivered with 1/3 or more less lumens then spec, “NW” that looked blue, battery carrier issues, flickering, or just plain DOA. And the claimed 55 deg thermal management was absent on all, lights hit 100C in short order. I’ll take extended wait times over that crap anyday.

Sounds like Haikelite MT09R. I didn’t pull trigger on it because the GB was such a hurry and the review sample of XHP35 HI went missing like act of GOD, ya, right! But I still think the 15000 lumens for XHP70.2 is very good performance.

cool i'll see you when you get there

Me neither, because it seemed somewhat a bit overvalued and I can not forget the problems with the previous GB organized by the same factory http://budgetlightforum.com/node/50791
Following what is happening in the MT09R, I am very happy that I did not pull trigger

Sorry for my bad English (gogole transtorla)

Not that I have received any tracking number for my GT, anyone sends their GT to Vinh to be modded into CFT90 beast?
I wonder how much it cost if send him our own GT? Vinh is selling USD675 for complete light though.
Vinh himself is still impressed with his own mod. That is one badass self endorsement that everyone believes and it is selling like hot cakes now.

cool i'll see you when you get there

I’m still waiting for my second battery carrier that was missing from my order… Hope Neal will reply (I even offered to pay a bit more to solve this quickly). Sucks to have an incomplete GT, I want to play with it while the nights are still completely dark over here.

If you want to use it without the 2nd battery carrier, you could probably make a dummy carrier with cardboard cut and rolled long enough to push the first carrier to make contact with the head. Positive and negative contacts are on the same side of the carrier.

Or you can ask for a short tube.
Perhaps a short tube and second carrier for compensation.

No email or PM but I just received a text message that a DHL package was picked in HK today. I do not think it could be anything but the GT so there is some hope.

Current Favorites:

BLF Q8, Thrunite TC20, Convoy L6

Thanks!

I just sent him a mail
I hope he answers and that the answer is coherent
The last one I received when asked to verify the DHL AWB because the one I received was delivered in Dayton, OH – US (my address is in Uruguay) was unacceptable

If you send in your light the cost is $490 shipped (If you live in the USA).

Tracking number received – and it’s a Royal Mail number, so should be easily trackable once it’s in the system.

EDIT: Just appeared on Packageradar a minute ago

G.sintornillos that reply from Neal is almost as bad as the guy who’s customer service rep reply was something like: Dear all, could you mind to keep wrong flashlight?” That is a classic lol.

Sorry man it appears that it costs way to much money to send a flashlight to your country so we just sent it to a stranger in the United States. Cheers!!!

You deserve some good luck finding its way to you, I really hope you get it!

Ah. Packageradar. A new one for me. Mine has just appeared too, and it’s also a Royal Mail number. It’s finally making its way here!

If I filled out Neal’s survey a couple weeks ago, should I fill it out again? Just wondering if they’re two separate surveys.

Thanks for taking care of everyone, Team Giggles. Thumbs Up

G sintornillos I think you need to leave Neal’s original message to you in your last post. It’s funny and deserves to be laughed. The situation isn’t funny, but his explanation to you sure as heck was.

Probably not a good idea to post people’s email addresses in a public forum. But I agree, it would be worth archiving the reply for posterity, just with personal information blurred out.

i have not received tracking information from the last batch - asking me will give you no answers Wink

 

also repeatedly sending the same mail for 3 weeks nearly every day “where is my gt?!“ does not ease neals work (and blocks my inbox as well)

 

Neals PayPal is still blocked, Lumintop want to get rid of the stock ...(https://m.de.aliexpress.com/item/32857004396.html?trace=storeDetail2msiteDetail&spm=a2g0x.12010611.0.0.58b91c17zMdI0r)

every alternative to Neal would cause a significant higher price Sad

he is desperate to find a way for the remaining groupbuy participants to get their Light for the  nice price.

Your patience saves you $$ Wink

So that was my last Neal’s Deal’s, nothing more with neal and lumintop for me….

I maybe lost the first payment but I found better to lost the first payment than receive a damaged flashlight Sick
