Those last two are pretty close. I wonder why the Mini beats your last one? It seems like a beast.

Maybe it’s the reflector? It’s slightly wider, 39mm to 33mm and about 9mm deeper. The mini has an AR lens, my C8 doesn’t. This might give it a definite advantage.


It is definitely the reflector diameter that counts. But the last two has AR coated lens. Forgot to mention.
My Emisar D1S with XP-L HI has 124.1 kcd and 704m stock
but with the same dedomed SST40 what was in the C8 I got 160.6 kcd and 801m

Ah, was your D1S CW or NW? If NW, that might explain why it read 124 kcd and the CW read 148kcd.

I know the sst40 is CW and it’s a powerful led with low forward voltage. I would expect it to get above 148kcd.

No, of course, I did not! Do you think if I received an order, would I ask so many questions? Martin sent me another’s track number, promised to send the present and is silent as a fish on the ice for three days already)))

I got confused when you said you “already received goods”.

I would not worry about 3 days. That is a very short for a Group Buy.

Did you send Neal the email address that is linked to your PayPal account? This is how he can find your order. I don’t know if a phone number will work. Maybe Martin uses the phone number, I don’t know.

Anyway, I think Neal can help you out.

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.

Edit: And here it is.

I’ll still order from you however.

That is for one simple reason: you can include cells inside of lights.

And Neal also gets money from us. He deserves it. Along with you.

Neal is faster to Australia too, by my experience. Neals Deals GT mini has arrived before a few of my Bang good orders, that shipped 2-4 days earlier, have even hit the country Smile

Wow, this is all due to the reflector size? That’s a bigger difference than I imagined. It certainly explains the Mini’s extra range.

I compare d it to my Emisar D1S.
D1S 3C made 124100 cd
GT mini 4000K made 124500 cd
The D1S beam is great and no complains but the mini’s beam is one step even better. So throw distance and lumens almost same. Beam pattern difference only noticable when white wall hunting. So the decision is up to what design and firmware do you prefer. I like the mini feel in the hand more and the crenelated bezel and design. Also like the lighted button feature so for me the mini is the winner a little bit.

My mini GT finally arrived. I thought it was without a rubber button, but it remained in the box … How do I put it in there? The steel ring are very tight. I did not buy a DIY flashlight. Anyone had a similar situation?

Forever beginner.

Hmmm, very strange. I believe the metal ring just pushes into place. You would need to get a metal tool and pry the ring out. Then put the rubber switch in the hole and push the metal ring back in.

You would need to make sure the button is rotated so the led can shine through. See this picture.

I’m sure it’s possible to just push the rubber button in its place without removing the steel ring

The metal ring needs to press down on the lip of the rubber button in order to make a watertight seal. This is also what holds it into place.

I would like to do it even with a screwdriver, but I’m afraid that I will scratch anodisation. I do not have a flashlight in the collection without even one scratch.
I am also wondering if I already pulled out a ring it would be possible to push it again. I mean, it can be loose. This ring is probably a one-off.

I think so too, Jason.

I tried to push the edge of rubber button under the ring, but it’s too tight.
