I bet that is the last time he allows a “friend” to use his account. With friends like that, you don’t need any enemies.


Hopefully the friend was the one who paid the $2500.

Hope that Lumintop decide soon and i can order the mcpcb together in next batch of GT.

I don’t think it will be ready that soon sadly (I am getting a prototype this week), although there will be an add-on to this next batch that I think some people will be excited about.

The add-on price will be $10 if purchased with the GT.

So, who can guess what it is?


It’s a shorty tube.

Sadly he did not pay for all of it, Neal is out of pocket a fair amount himself.

Short tube?

That doesn’t make much sense, to me at least. Maybe they are offering it due to the Astrolux light being short tube as well? Maybe Lumintop wants to Strike Back at them? Flashlight Wars! Lol

Yeah, I didn’t say I was going to get one but I know some people have been begging for it, so now they have it.

I still say it is just as silly now as when it was first suggested lol.

What a fat tube. Now GT becomes a fatty flashlight, might be the fattest flashlight in the world now. TA, How many world record GT wants to break? Big Smile
And people can put two GT in one bag. Should be useful for some people. I think I will still get one just in case I need it.

cool i'll see you when you get there

I think the price is fair, $10 if purchased with a GT, $15 if purchased separately.

TA posted the below, so it seems to imply there are plenty. And there seemed to indeed be a lot of them in boxes in a picture somewhere above. So… hopefully there will be. Thumbs Up

Yes it will fit all GT’s made. They have all used the same threads.

Also yes, if you have a light in the last 2 batches you can order the short tubes at $10 and there is no limit at this time.

Far as there being enough, I do not know how many were made but the minimum order for something like this is generally a few hundred. So I assume there are enough to go around. If not you can bet they will make more.

Have you sent Neal a message about this? Please do that, we are trying to get all of these type of issues fixed before the next batch.
