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

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

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

Oh OK…. Thumbs Up .. The 1A is the goal for the CW (Cool White).
That was why I was confused. I though you were just answering the Neutral White question td1042k asked…..

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?

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.

Thanks, I just resubmitted using Chrome again and this time got an immediate online confirmation I don’t remember seeing last time, followed-up by an email slot reservation confirmation as expected. I must have just got too excited and screwed something up on the first try.

Yes, there is a “kit” for $55. I’m not sure how you missed it.

Hi

I’m in for a conversion kit.i just filled the informations.

It is very good to see a “mass” upgrade kit as many people like to mod their lights.

Very good job from the giggle team.

Incredible forum.

Keep going

Looking at the list in the video above,I saw some huge numbers in the last line.Is it possible to duplicate these numbers in the new GT 70.2 light for which we talk?Because 600Kcd is something,but 1,380,880 is something else…

No, I would go with what TA measured on the actual light which is about 500kcd dome on and maybe 780kcd dome off.

It’s possible a CW emitter will bump up both numbers, but I’m not sure TA has measured this combo yet. If he has tested it, I’m sure he will mention that later. (He might take a day off on Sunday)

Submitted for one conversion kit in CW Beer
Thanks guys.

Ps: Is there any plans for multi emitter GT with 4-5 xhp70.2?

It was either TA or DB Custom (one of these Texas outlaws) that was planning to make a 4 emitter version using 4 C8 reflectors. I have not heard anything about it recently, though.

Requesting 1 GT70, batteries (price dependent), & 2 lenses. I assume GT70 is delivered with battery carriers installed & extra carriers would not be needed to make light functional? Thanks team.

I haven’t heard the official price on the batteries as it’s still early days, but they should be about the same price as the 35E from the GT group buy which is $40 for 8 button top 30Q. Later on I’m sure we will get more exact info.

Yes, the GT70 comes with two battery carriers and the long battery tube. If the batteries are bought at the same time as the light (and they need to be) they will ship inside the light. If they are bought seperately they may not be able to be shipped to the USA. This is a newer development. It used to be easy for Lumintop to ship batteries seperate, but not any more.

Kind of.

Technically this light will be the same as the video you saw minus the exact LED used. So it could in theory give you the same type of numbers if you de-domed the LED.

I have not tested a P2 emitter dedomed yet so I am not sure what it will do, the 750-800kcd is a conservative guess because it is always easy to raise the numbers later but very hard to lower them.

This applies to all the official ratings right now, they are all quite conservative compared to what I have personally measured even.

Until we find the production LED it is just impossible to know for sure what the numbers will be.

All of that said, if you swapped the LED for the same one VOB used (think he got it from kaidomain.com), then it would be exactly the same as his light.

At this pace we will need battery tube couplers in no time. Especially if there are real plans to make a GT with four or five xhp70.2s Evil Will there be a poll how many emitters will be used in the next BLF GT project? Crazy

Why limit yourself to 12 cells if you can have 16 cells ? Multiple xhp70.2s are hungry Big Smile

All I can say is that a “more extreme” light is in the works. Far to early for anything more then that at this point.

16 cells? Definitely should get super long runtime.
