Hello I just received the email to order but first I wanted to ask what the shipping method will be. I don’t want DHL! Their taxes and fees are astronomical after passing through customs. Please tell me it’s regular China Registered Mail!

regular China Registered and priority mail
DHL is too expensive

Thank You Neal!

There’s no replacement for displacement.

I just ordered two NW models. Thank you Martin, Neal, and Lumintop! Thumbs Up

I agree that the ‘GT mini’ engraving looks strange, but the Lumintop logo and bunny look great!


I also wish the driver wasn’t glued, but I’ll deal with it. Wink

First of all… PLEASE go back to your post & resize your picture. Wink

I totally agree with what you say…. the GT Mini logo should be in the same place as the original GT.
BUT, if it has to be on the battery tube flat; the one in this picture looks a thousand times better than what was presented this morning.
As far as I am concerned anyway.

I wonder who comes up with this stuff?? Facepalm

And while we’re at it. I wish more companies (not just Lumentop) would take a tip from SOFIRN & offer a much truer neutral white tint.

The choices here are 4000K & 6500K. Basically ‘Urine Yellow’ & ‘Harsh Blue’.. Facepalm

True Neutral White has been left out & we are left with two crappy choices that both add a lot of color.

And glue the driver in??? Why?? . Shocked . Facepalm

My opinions… yours may vary.

The Lumintop/Bunny logo is probably on one side, GT mini on the other. Wink

Ordered. Big Smile

Thanks Martin, thanks Neal, thanks Lumintop, thanks Samsung Big Smile

M4DM4X…… In the video you did about the GT Mini, was it the 4000K or 6500K emitter??

Which ever it was is what I want to go with. Smile

Yep, I was suggesting Lumintop simply skip the ‘GT mini’ engraving on the other side. Thumbs Up

Probably already done at this point, to be honest… they’re planning on starting shipping next week so the lights are probably already made.

Well… if that’s the case….. I retract my displeasure. I can live with that…. Big Smile

The rest of my above post about tint & glue remains intact. Wink

Man that sucks about the engraving on the side. That text is really awful. And now realizing the driver is glued in…

I said I was interested in 2, but I’m only ordering 1. Hopefully the NW tint isn’t too yellow.

Teacher, can you confirm where you saw these emitter tints at? I can’t seem to find them in any of the threads or reviews.

Does anyone know what emitter bin comes in it?

I ordered CW but of course I’ll change it… Wink

I will, at the very least, change the emitter and flash Anduril to the driver… I might end up putting an XHP-35 in it, who knows?

If the long tube can take it, I’ll probably bore it for a 20700 or 21700, depending of course if it can take either. I have a couple of XP-L HI V3 3A bare emitters and some boards, might even slice an Samsung LH351D like I did yesterday. I’ll figure it out, one way or 3 others…

(Edit: Come to think on it, I DO have another SBT-70 left over…. Wink )

My pleasure Yourrid! That is what I am going with also.

Martin says he thinks that is what he had in the Prototype when he made the GT Mini video.

Does anyone have details about the driver, like the circuit design and ideally also source code? If it’s using NarsilM, there should be code for the GT-Mini version available since it’s a derivative work of a GPL-licensed project.

Code would be the most helpful thing for getting Anduril to run on it. An actual working unit with an unglued driver would help too, but probably isn’t necessary if there is reference code.
