I really like the shorty variant…but at the same time I don’t have enough use for it to justify the expense.

This has considerably more throw than a Kronos X6. It’s very closely comparable to an Emisar D1S.

This size is almost the same as Manker U22. Any possibility to have an optional 21700 tube? A descent high capacity 21700 can provide at least 40% more runtime than a 18650, while the diameter is only 3mm larger! This tube diameter difference is almost negligible given that head size.

As I watch the photo it’s comparable with the UT02. Is it better? I already have the Utorch, so I am only interested if it’s a better thrower.

Based on the specs, the Mini-GT will likely out-throw the UT02, and will have a nicer UI. Also hopefully a better button, as I found the button on my UT02 awfully mushy. Beyond that, it will come down to which type of driver is being used. If the Mini-GT uses a FET+1 driver like the Emisar D1S, then the UT02 will have the advantage of more stable output over time due to its boost driver as well as greater efficiency at mid-levels. But if the Mini-GT uses a boost driver, or even just a buck driver, then the UT02 might lose that advantage.

There’s also the difference of whether you prefer 18650s for compatibility with other lights, or the longer runtimes of 26650s combined with micro-USB charging.

They seem pretty comparable as far as output and distance. I seem to remember some people getting really low output from the UT02 after Utorch adjusted the drivers down to increase reliability. I can’t remember if they were measuring 1000 or 1200, though. It was pretty low for a xhp35-HI.

The mini GT seems to have a 9mm smaller diameter head combined with a slightly smaller die size emitter so my guess was the mini GT would have a little bit tighter hot spot giving it more throw, but the pictures show them with a similar sized hotspot. Oh well, I guess the differences equal out.

I think the big selling point on the mini GT is the styling and UI. It’s also much smaller and lighter than the UT02.

If the driver is a FET, the XPL-HI can handle higher amps. At 7A it might be doing 1700 lumen which would definitely beat the UT02. In stock form they appear to have similar throw.

“MT” pronounced “empty”? … I think “mini GT” sounds better.

If 18650 is ‘mini’ and 18350 is ‘micro,’ then how about ‘pico’ for the AAA model? Party

As far as I can tell, that’s the point. Same size and performance as a D1S, but with a different look and feel. Also, an optional 18350 version.
