Even if the IOS means Intl-Outdoor Store, I’d think that would be a major conflict with the Apple iOS we are all so familiar with. Interesting… one would think Apple would be all over that… when I was starting my business I consulted a trademark lawyer and the rules of engagement there are very difficult to meet. I wanted to call my photography business TIME, Digitally Remasterd. I was told I would be sued by TIME magazine. Get’s to be a real pita when you’re global, like Apple.

Hmmm, ToyKeeper calls it RampingIOS, but Richard at MTN E calls it the D4 UI.

Geez, thanks Robert… one more thing to worry about. Would a ti plate with 6 screws on my spine qualify for that or is more related to joint replacement issues?

Mostly knees and hips from what i’ve seen. Infections can occur with any surgery, but I think you’re in the clear by now. A good friend of mine had both knee replacements done 5 yrs apart. Both got infected, and was hooked up to picc lines for a month+ each time. Not a lot of blood flow in those joint areas, so it’s difficult to kill off infections. Complications during surgery exponentially increase risk, ie: the longer the incisions are open, the more risk. They try and work as fast as possible for this reason. We would do extra scrub downs with the C-Arm (x-ray and fluoroscope machine) prior to entering OR, then install a sterile jacket cover over the entire piece of equipment similar to this

I sent a message to Lumintop and they did respond but at their direction I have to go through Neal.

Neal promised me to send a new replacement head so im waiting for that hopefully they will honor their word so i can actually use the light which i bought to use. For me its the first time a lights switch ever died or whatever, i think for sure they have certain issues with this model hard to deny that..

I was told anything under 10% is considered acceptable. So right now the current lights can be fixed without much problem.

To me if this is acceptable ratio then it was my last Lumintop light also if thats the kind of quality the offer then no thanks, feels like the replacement head wont come either, been 3 weeks now almost but i will wait a little more, then i will just pack the light in its box and it will collect dust i guess and 40$ wasted on crap…
You guys are cracking me up…. Big Smile

From what I read Jason never said he was told this by Lumintop. So why all the ‘speculation’ that he was??

Why all the declarations & announcements that you “will never buy another Lumintop light”??
In the big scheme of things, who cares if you do or not?? Especially for the somewhat silly reasons you have mentioned.

Stuff happens….Many times things don’t work as they should. That’s life.

My switch is screwed up on my GT Mini also… So what, no big deal; this is not life & death. In time it will get sorted out & replaced…. simple as that.

Is there really any need to keep posting about it over & over? Is that going to magically fix the problem or speed the process? Personally, I think not.

I have not received my replacement head either. And I really do not expect to receive it for at least another 3 weeks, minium. Remember…. China ‘shuts down’ 1- 7 October this year, and that time is just about upon us.

But my replacement head will come. I certainly am not going to put my Mini GT back in the box to collect dust. Wink And if I did I sure would not post about it. Big Smile

I think many times we BLF’ers must think we deserve preferential treatment & are somehow entitled to it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We reap the benefits of great products at super great prices. Yet if there is a problem, shipping is delayed (for whatever reason), a PM or email is not replied to in what we consider a timely manner or at all, or something doesn’t work as it should…. we have a proverbial fit & meltdown first thing.

Save the fit’s & meltdowns for the last resort after other channels have failed.

Take a ‘chill pill’ & relax.
You’ll get a more harmonious outcome & not run your blood pressure up.

In other words, all these little annoyances usually work out in time. Thumbs Up

Just my .02, YMMV……

Thanks Robert, Teacher, appreciate the vote of confidence. My wife worked in the OR with the Instrument Processing department and has seen all that too.

I think it would be neat to buy up 4 of the defective heads and build a Mini GT quad out of em. Big Smile That would make me get the 6” 4 jaw chuck out of the box and figure out how to use it, something will make me do that some time or another…

My bad, I shouldn’t have assumed that. Who said it then? Banggood? Is yes then it makes much more sense, and is even very optimistic looking at amount of crap they’re selling in general Smile

Cause I won’t? It’s not really big declaration for me but I do understand your point of view.

In the big scheme of things, what matters in general? Is it a reason to close this (or any) forum?
Don’t talk to me like this please, especially about sillines because at the end of the day we’re both discussing flashlights on the internet, so no-one really cares Wink

I’m happy for you. I expressed my dissapointment because I’m not lucky enough to get any sort of reply from Lumintop and dealers customer service was also not too helpful at the begining.
In general I don’t like buying damaged stuff and I do beleve that feedback, especially negative is very powerful tool for all parties involved. As long as it’s constructive naturally.
Just to be clear I’m not saying that siting and waiting for things to sort themeselves out is any worse approach. In the big scheme of things, it doesn’t matter.

Just recently joined the forum so can’t say I did got used to any kind of special treatment yet. I’m just a regular guy who gets obsessed with flashlights every 2 years or so Big Smile
I have to say that I do pay attencion to how communicative companies are, especially when I’m a customer. Would’t call commenting on that a meltdown though Wink

I suggested there might be some problems to M4D M4X. He is the one who said “anything below 10% is okay for a chinese manufacturer”. I was kind of surprised, too.

teacher im not made out of money, will you buy me a new light then? if no then u shouldnt talk like its ok for a 40$ light to go bad and like if i should have known better or something. i dont really understand your reasoning on that….

cant say its fun to have a light that got a few weeks use and gone bad, thats just frustrating u have to wait and wait now for replacements , i bought a brand new light not a used one so it should work alot longer then one month is that too much ask today? perhaps it is best to stick to blf only lights…

I’m NOT saying “it is OK for a $40 light to go bad”.

I am saying that ‘stuff happens’ and moaning, groaning, & whining about it is not going to get it fixed.

Neal has already told you mortuus he is sending you a ‘replacement head’. Why not just wait to receive it??

Yeah, it can be “frustrating” when something breaks or does not work as it should. Then one must wait on a replacement or warranty work… that may be frustrating also. BUT….. that is just the way it goes, the way the cookie crumbles.

It would be wonderful if everything always worked as it should. That IS NOT to much to ask………
But sadly, that is not reality. Stuff happens, things break. We must deal with it….

UPDATE

Today a replacement head for my GT Mini also came in my mail! Very happy, the switch now works like it should, it’s night and day compared to the old one. Also as mortuus said the switch backlight is better. Check pictures of old head and new head(left one is new). https://photos.app.goo.gl/5mi9brTG8FmX9UjG9

Thank’s to Neal for resolving my problem!

Glad you received yours mortuus! Thumbs Up . The switch in my ‘new’ head is crisp when clicked, compared to the wimpy feel of the faulty one.

Thanks again Neal….. Thumbs Up

EDIT: . Oh yeah, I won the ‘battery tube index lottery’ on this one! A tube flat lines up perfectly with the switch. Luck of the draw… but I’ll take it. Wink

The switch light is working & has been for about 24 hours now!! So far, so good on that. It is not lined up correctly, it looks like a smile from a stroke victim…. but no big deal on that front. At least it is working & hopefully will continue to do so. Thumbs Up

I wonder if rotating the original button cover would fix the light?

It probably would, but how can it be easily rotated??

Okay, mine goes worse and worse… I can’t be sure that it will light ON when I press the switch, and I don’t even think of ramping…
BG just answered my request and they want to refund me 10€ to “repair it locally” Facepalm
Come on, do you even know a shop that would fix it ? For 10€ ? Ughh
Naw, not gonna happen… So I asked a spare driver or a whole new head assembly… We’ll see

wow that sucks, maybe ask Neal after holidays if he can sell you a new spare head instead? banggood always screws customers over when it comes to faulty lights..
Its obvious they rushed the production of this light, its not just a few issues, i think there are alot more those from banggood that dont hang and post in here so they must know by now lumintop that it has some issues with switch etc and the problem is not just 10 people.. its more.

I just dont understand banggood should just contact lumintop since they buy from them directly? and ask how solve it, its obvious it should go under warranty brand new lights and switch issues etc..

I paid via PayPal, if BG refuses to handle this on a correct manner I’ll open a dispute…

X3 you got a response from BG recently? I haven’t heard back since I sent the video / photos they requested about 10ish days ago. Figured they were on holiday but if they’ve recently replied to you I need to email again.
