Thanks, buddy. This is what I found. There’s no form though.

Nevermind, it works in gmail, but not in Mac Mail.

Thanks, added to the OP as well.

Can you upload new pictures to the same link by chance? If so then you could simply upload updated pictures and it would automatically update the OP as well.

 Ok, it seems that the server, where I keep my images on, assigns random directories. I uploaded a test image from my computer and then uploaded a different version of the image by the same name and it didn't overwrite the initial uploaded image.  I guess they do this so that people don't leech other images out of the entire directory.  Not sure if the forum allows multiple Admins but if granted to me I could upload the images directly if you want and if not, I'll just keep posting them in the thread.  My pleasure either way.smile

I figured that is what would happen but it was worth a shot.

Do you know how to use FTP?

Great, thanks for that.

I do not use Social media so anyone else that wants to spread it around is more then welcome to link to this thread or even copy/paste if needed (although linking is preferred so people can stay updated).

I hope to get an update on the XHP70.2 LED next week, I know that Neal had some requests in for options but does not expect a response until after the weekend.

Filled in the form for 1 conversion kit.
I really want to have a extra gt but can’t justify it.. So with this conversion kit i have already the option to go with more throw or more flood.

Yes, I know how to use FTP.  I use FileZilla. Not much use for it these days though.  I ran a Bulletin boards back when the internet was not even the rage on a IBM PC 8088!  I set up FTP with all Sysops in the country to exchange files/data.  We were the internet that were accessed via phone lines.

Tried to sign up July 3 by filling out the form in Firefox but had problems (submit button didn’t appear to do anything) so I switched to Chrome. It appeared to submit that time but I have not received a confirmation email (checked junk & spam) and I don’t show up on the list in post #7.

Attempted signup was for one BLF GT 70 NW and 8 Samsung 30Q Batteries (would have signed up for a case & strap if that option was available).

What should I do, try again?

Neutral White conversion kit, heck yes!

Will the neutral tint be closer to 5000k-5500k instead of the warmer end of the spectrum? While I love the 4000k tint of the stock xhp35 I think I’d enjoy a cooler neutral tint on the xhp70.2

Ultrafire C12 XHP70 2S 18650 Mtn Elec 6V Zener mod driver (super donut beam!)
Ultrafire C12 XPL-HI BLF-A6 FET driver
Convoy L6 Mtn Elec D4 UI driver, XHP70.2
Utorch UT02 NW
BLF Q8
BLF A6 NW
BLF GT XHP35
BLF GT (GT70 CONVERSION CW(SOON))
Skilhunt H03 NW
Astrolux MF02 NW
Astrolux MF01 XP-G3
Sofirn SF14
Sofirn SP32A
Emisar D4 XP-L HI CW
SK68 knockoff
Mini Mag Lite 2X AAA

I just checked and do not see a response from your user name, so it does not look like it went through. So only real option is to try again.

Strange that you are having issues even on chrome.

The goal is 3D and 1A but we will have to see what they can find before we will know for sure.

I totally agree. Thumbs Up Something that adds as little tint (warmer or cooler) to True Neutral White as possible.

TA… I’m confused. Is that 1A a typo? This was about NW, was the 1A you typed supposed to be 3A??

Thanks, just curious & a bit confused. Smile

Not a typeo, just not well worded.

We are looking for both a 3D and 1A tint in a perfect world so people can choose between NW and CW.

In the real world we are at the mercy of what is available in a P2 bin and a reasonable tint. We will see how close we can get to the goal.

Hopefully I will get an update next week.
