That is some good info you posted Jason… thank you. Beer

Did the tracking info for yours ever update before it was delivered?

Any info appreciated my friend….. Wink

For anyone in the USA who has received theirs, has your tracking info worked? Or did it just say processed in China and then show up at your door?

I’m sure all of ours will get here eventually, I’m just curious if I should even bother checking the tracking progress.


Mine was detailed and showed all the steps. The normal box was in another box inside a plastic envelope and was through Flyt Express. From China to Canada to Kentucky to Houston in 7 days. Neal may have chose a slightly faster shipping option for me, I’m not sure.

Thank you Jason…. Thumbs Up

That probably explains it. Mine is thru China EMS ePacket and has a Tracking Number in this format. LY51xxxxx88CN

Yeah, my tracking number started with F and had all numbers. So they will probably start showing up next week to the US.

Here are my measurements from a stock CW GT Mini using a Samsung 30Q.

Tail amps @30s using UT210E:

Top of ramp – 2.85A
Turbo – 5.5A
Parasitic drain normal – 0.18mA
Drain with switch led off- 0.02mA

Candela @30s and 10 meters using LX1330B:

GT Mini – 148kcd = 769m
Convoy C8 xm-l2 CW – 39kcd = 395m
Stock GT – 1.05mcd = 2,049m

Lumens using Texas_Ace Lumen Tube calibrated from Maukka’s S2 plus CW:

GT Mini:
Top of ramp:
turn on 720 lm
@30s 705 lm

Turbo:
turn on 1240 lm,
@30s 1200 lm

Convoy C8 xm-l2 CW
turn on 850 lm,
@30s 785 lm

I managed to measure 4.80-4.81A using the same meter (UT210E) and batt. The batt was around 4.10V before I started the reading. Tint used is also CW (stock config). I used an 11 AWG stranded copper wire to connect the negative terminal to the body.

I think Neal sent mine through a slightly faster shipping service, like 7 day express. The bulk of the US lights are probably using a cheaper, 14 day service like normal.

Well, the bezel isn’t glued in my light, maybe just luck?

Anyhow, I did some tests today, using a 3 year old Efest purple INR2500 (I think the 2500 LG cell is in there).
So, not the latest and greatest cell there is but still!

Measured at 10m for easy calculations using my cheap LX1330B luxmeter I got:

At start @ turbo (double click) 135Kcd
After approx. 30 seconds 130Kcd
After 30 seconds at maximum ramping 78Kcd.

Mind you, using what is certainly not the best cell and my light is “NW”, but I would rather say it’s WW (same as with my GT).
It could very well be that using a truly CW led it does better.
The light gets quite hot very quickly so it looks like the heat transfer is good as well.

Cheers
Nico

As predicted I measured the light again, this time with a fresh and fully charged Sony VTC6.
I got 140Kcd at turbo and 81Kcd at max ramping.

And yes, this time I did deduct 64Lux ambient light in my basement……..

Which means that my previous measurement date should read ad follows:
I got 129Kcd at turbo and 72Kcd at max ramping (with the Efest INR2500)

Cheers,
Nico

It depends on which mode set number you are using.

Modes 1-6 use the top of the ramp as 100%.

Modes 7-12 use full turbo as 100%.

You can download the manual here.

This is the manual that still says it uses a buck driver, just ignore that part.

Sorry Jason,
The GTmini has other modes settings than the big GT.
GTmini has also 50% as top of the ramp whereas a GT has 80%.
The linked manual from Madmax has errors in Modetable, 50% ramp, driver type and some different wording.

@timbuchanan
Yes, 100% in modes equal to TURBO

I think your confused. I did not mention anything about the big GT or its manual.

I also don’t see any errors in my response as it’s straight from the GT manual.

UPDATE TO MANUAL

After trying mode 4 and mode 10 it appears that the groups are reversed.

Modes 1-6 use full turbo as 100% (5A)

Modes 7-12 use the top of the ramp as 100% (2.5A)

We definitely need an updated manual to reflect this.

I’m not saying either. I’ll edit my older post.

At first I went by the online manual for the GT Mini, but it was incorrect. Then I tried out both modes 4 and 10 on my light and found mode 4 used 5A and mode 10 used 2.5A. So something was fishy.

Then TA pointed me to the latest updated manual (v5) and it shows a whole new unique set of mode sets not seen in previous versions of NarsilM v1.2

You can use the link I posted to see the levels.

Is the Aspire cell new? Is that result repeatable?
So far I haven’t seen any evidence of the existence of another cell that would compete with Yong Deli (used by Aspire) when it comes to both capacity and internal resistance.
Now that Shockli actually seems to be something different…but I’m not yet convinced.

Also, the Shockli stated capacity is about what would I expect them to state if they used the YongDeli.

I guess you would need to have a ROT66 to confirm its accuracy.

Some things I notice is that it says you can press and hold to get into the menu. They might have used 16 seconds in ramping, but it’s always best to ramp down to get into the menu. If your in mode sets it only takes about 3 seconds.

Of course, if you are in mode sets the menu is different. So maybe the diagram should be labeled (only in ramping mode) under the “16 seconds”.

There’s no mention of the mode sets menu or all the mode sets brightness level options (1-12). I guess this was on purpose to keep things simple.

Yep… mine says 3rd too. Big Smile . Looks like they are all just sitting around waiting to leave.
