That’s what i’ve been thinking about. 4*18650 will be always enough for a XHP35 Hi.

I think 8 cells are kind of waste.


You don’t need to use 8 cells in the GT.
The long battery tube is for balance as i understand.
I plan to leave one carrier empty.

8 cells were never about the need for them with an xhp35. It was about balance. The short tube version is horribly unblanced and literally hurts your wrist to hold for any length of time.

Not to mention it looks silly.

I see. That’s what the long tube for.

I agree. The only have experience with the long tube but the short seems like it would torque the wrist a good bit.

Definitely Mateminco/Astrolux, same tube and head machining as MF02.

So it’s module design too. There must be dual heads for this one.

Can’t wait to see the dual heads of two big heads.

i was told they planned to stay quiet until the gt groupbuy is finished because they do not want to interfere.

I have known it for over 2 weeks just that this light will come

Same for me I was told not to tell anyone else about BG/Matemineco is going to bring a GT pendant

You can likely put a MF01 head on the other end for balance

Different/better led – more output… more throw…? Just a question…

Better LED is relative.

Toss a Flat black in the GT and it should do around 2Mcd.

Or toss an XHP70.2 and it does ~8000 lumens with ~1200m of throw.

The only real option that will net you gains in both throw and lumens is the sst-90 or whatever it is. BUT that LED costs around $150 for the LED alone. So gonna guess they are not using that lol.

$150 for an LED ? That is nuts.

There is plenty of racism to find in our world today, there is no need to concoct a reason to be offended here.

I don’t see anyone accusing m4dm4x as racist here. I think you overreacted. It is offensive to Chineses to be called chin or cina, but i think it’s over reacted for this case too.
I don’t intend to start any arguments or debate here, just to explain so that people understand. The reason is related to WW2 and Japanese when Chinese were called cina or sound like that.

But i think it was simply a short form by M4DM4X. Definitely overreacted if anyone find it offensive. Unless M4DM4X is Japanese. Cool

cool i'll see you when you get there

IMHO, I don’t think Joey over-reacted. Joey was merely pointing out that there are members here that are over-reacting from innocent typo. I saw the post directed at m4dm4x suggesting that he shouldn’t use such word. I was the first one to jump to his defense as it was clearly a typo on Martin’s part. From memory, instead of typing out the whole word “Chinese New Year”, he typed it as “Chin. New Year”. The Chin. that was used in that context was clearly an abbreviation, and had no malice in it whatsoever.

Joey is right to say that we are all here for this hobby, and people ought not to suggest anyone is being racist from simple typo, and I will add that it should be irrespective of their race.

The correct abbreviation is ‘Chi’, however it’s an easy mistake to make. As an Engl & Ger speaker I would have guessed ‘Chin’ myself.

Since we are sidetracking a bit, and talking about abbreviations, it is easiest to use the acronym CNY to refer to Chinese New Year. I use it myself all the time Big Smile

That would make my life so much easier these last few weeks, sadly I was afraid I would just get questions of what CYN was and then spend more time explaining it lol.

Ya, CNY is the right abbreviation. I use that to save typing.
Chin or Cina is history burden for Chineses and those invaded China before, and there were places with signboard “Cina and dogs not allowed” in China during those time. It’s complicated. I believe many other races dislike certain name calling of their race too.

cool i'll see you when you get there
