And to think the mfo4s I paid for from bangOK almost a month ago is still wandering around the earth.

THANKS NEAL! And Ace, and everyone else who played a part in this

You’re lucky, Neal doesn’t reply emails about shipping of my GT90.

here we go again…

Today, I’ve sent my last email to Neal. After this, I’ll request to paypal for full refund.

PS: Neal just answered to my email.

People should keep in mind that not all sellers check their emails often. I’ve bought a bunch of stuff from Neal and everything always arrive so just have some patience. If I were impatient like many folks here and expect replies within a few days, I would have filed paypal complaints for half of my purchases. I learned that buying from bargain outlets in China, most are one-man shops that don’t check emails once they get busy. That’s just the way it works and what I expect in exchange for bargain deals. Otherwise just buy from Illumn.com (though they don’t carry this yet).

I talked to Neal today, he said that he replied to all emails.

He has been doing better recently for me anyways, normally takes a few days but he has been getting back to me within a week in most cases. Not ideal by any means but for a newlywed Dad running a 1 man shop international business, I can’t say I can judge him too hard.

Anyone going into this should indeed be aware that there will more then likely be delays in communication from him and possibly shipping, although thus far he seems to be shipping them out basically as fast as lumintop gets them to him.

I have felt like that since I first got into flashlights over 10 years ago. I managed to break away from them for awhile, but they just keep pulling me back in…

Update: Neal just let me know that the factory went on vacation for the China New years celebration this weekend, so all orders will be delayed until after the factory opens back up. He did not have an exact date but based on past experiences I expect end of Jan or early Feb to be when things start moving again.

Neal just got an update on when the factory plans to re-open. They told him they will be starting production again on Feb 12th.

You can still place orders in the mean time of course but shipping will be delayed until mid-Feb.

Good news, Neal just had a final shipment of assembled GT90’s from before the factory closed show up, he thinks it will be enough to complete most of the existing orders right now. He said there is another package from lumintop that is supposed to be delivered tomorrow but he is not sure what is in it.

I will update with more info when I know more.

Anyone know if lumintop will release a conversion kit? I have no need to have two GT’s.

There was some discussion of conversion kits earlier in this thread, and or in the GT4 thread. Summary: probably not.

I am not sure what you are asking? This is the group buy for the GT90?

yes but he means probably that the first batch is sold out, and then the price will increase or will it not change once they get new stock in ?

As I understand it right now, there is not truly a “batch”, I think that is just a translation error. As I understand it they simply made all they can make before the holiday and will make the rest when the factory opens back up.

So far as I know we have not sold out of the GB lights yet, although I am not sure how many are left.

As long as the promo code works when checking out, the price is in effect. He will disable the code when the GB is over. When that will be I simply can’t say at this point.

$61 or that charger plus 8 VTC6 cells is a pretty good deal. Makes this a bargain. Sick
