is this diagramm for the GTmini or ROT66?

- describes only RAMPING no MODES
- everything starts from OFF. But you have also access to everything when the lamp is ON
- can be difficult to read when printed in black and white?

- Not everything is in the diagram. I think it needs some text to explain it to a NarsilM beginner.

I actually thought I was in the ROT66 thread when I mentioned it earlier. I edited it out.

I’m guessing that diagram is for the GT Mini.

not sure - I was thinking it's for the GT Mini 

 

also I belive 90% of the narsil users will find more information than needed and for playing with the new light once to set it up its ma be a good way to visualize how it works. 

 

any better way to help muggles to use the potential of narsil is highly appreciated Smile

I have just received my 2 GTminis but there is something wrong with one of them. It has no turbo mode! After a double click the output power is the same as in high, only the color temperature gets a little cooler. Also the defective one has worse centered LED in the reflector.
Both lights were ordered NW and they are the same color temperature all the way through ramping, both powered with freshly charged sanyo 18650GA

A little Cooler or Bluer? Wonder if your LED is not on the star correctly?

My thoughts, if instead of more light you get blue, it looks like your turbo mode is fine but your led heatsinking is wrong.

This is very possible, I just noticed some white smoke inside the ref. The beam was not exactly blue, something like the 3A tint of convoy c8

If the ramp ceiling and a double click Turbo appear to be the same output, the cell choice could be the culprit. Some cells, especially protected cells, can’t deliver the higher Turbo amperage requirement.

I guess the $2 extra shipping I paid was for an extra trip around the parking lot at the Guangzhou航站 Guangdong shipping center—it seems it has been there since the 1st but finally has been accepted—-

Just received my mini GT. At first I kept measuring about 500 lumens with every battery I had and freaked out. Then I wiped down the springs with alcohol and got 1,140 turn on lumens using the TA lumen sphere. In comparison, my D1S measures 862 turn on lumens. I don’t know why it measured so low even after I wiped the springs with alcohol. The hotspot on the D1S is smaller than the Mini GT though. The Mini GT NW tint is actually as warm and rosier than the 5D D1S so it is definitely a 5D tint. Looks great.

Thank you Neal for quick dispatch, my NW just arrived in Melbourne, Australia. No trips around the car park for this one. It’s beaten some Bang good orders placed the week before I ordered the GT mini.

Tested with 3500mAh protected battery, nice little hotspot in well lit office, included 30Q is charging for after dark.

Ah, yours is NW, that’s why it’s reading a little less than my CW.

yea I’m guessing it is the same XP-L HI 5D v2 bin used in the Emisar D1S. Yours is probably the 1A v3 bin.

Javisst! Will have to charge up my old Canon G3 and take some snaps. Was lighting up some eucalyptus trees earlier this evening, comparing GT mini NW to ThorFire C8s which is quite cool. The NW brings out the browns and greens very nicely. Also received 4x VTC6 for Q8 to replace Imalent MRB-186P30. 750lux to 970lux with my Samsung phone ceiling bounce test

Mine still says: “Your item has been processed through a facility in GUANGZHOU EMS, CHINA at 6:33 am on August 1, 2018.”

But I’ll give it another 6 days before I start asking Martin where my package is. Deliveries from China via post office take forever sometimes.

My Mini GT arrived in Canada yesterday and is in customs in Mississauga. It will hopefully be released and arrive in the next few days.

Received my order in the mail today. It’s great!

Quick question: I’m trying to set the moonlight mode to “1”. When I click to set “1” as the desired moonlight level, the light starts up brighter than the “default 3” level. When I click to set moonlight to “2,” it is noticeably dimmer than “3”. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for the help and putting this buy together!

Are you in ramping mode? Are you pressing and holding from off to get to moonlight? You have to release the button as soon as the light turns on otherwise it starts ramping up. It just stays at moonlight for maybe 0.5 second.

The bottom of the ramp seems to be about moonlight 4 brightness level.

I checked moonlight levels 1-4 and all seemed to work as they should. Moonlight 1 just barely had the led glowing. I had to turn off the room light just to see if it was on or not.
