I didn’t grab a short battery tube before the Neals Deals section got locked back down in anticipation of this group 3 — is there another way to purchase that, or is it just another case of wait it out?

Anyone that has a missing package, Please send me a PM (I will try to send messages to the people in the survey but I am so busy right now that might take awhile).

I got in contact with someone at lumintop that seems to have a bit more of a handle on things and he says you can email him directly. I will give you his email address via PM.

As I suspected they are tracing the packages and working on each issues on a case by case basis depending on what the package trace returns. I have also been assured that they will get these issues taken care of as quickly as possible.

PM sent. Thanks TA

Yes, I think they had to take that section down to keep the sales from conflicting or something. Martin and Neal will have to sort that out.

Does this mean i dont need to dive into the public sale of the 50 lamps and can hold out for the 4th phase of light shipments?


The public sale is about $300 or so?
Group buy is about $157.
It’s up to you.

It will be as soon as SB has time to run the script, not sure when that will be.

I don’t think you will be included in this batch of PM’s but you will be in the next batch in a month or so.

Up to you if you want to wait or buy now.

I am pretty sure they filed a package trace on your order and are simply waiting for that to come back before they send another. A package trace has around a 30-40% chance of knocking something loose so this makes sense.

I will send you a PM with an email address for someone you can contact about this.

The BLF public discount price sign up sheet is now active!

We have worked a deal with Lumintop to allow BLF members to purchase a public sale GT at a discount from the full $325 retail price.

Simply fill out the form below and you will be contacted with a link to a discounted price. There are still only 50 lights available total for the public at this time.

The discounted price is $250 for these first 50 lights, we do now know what will happen with the next batch.

Don’t worry LM will check everything. IT takes time and time, time and so on… Meanwhile Your PayPal time to open dispute will end, so You become without money and without GT… I filled survey two times – no answer, send PM to Neal – no answer. Now send email to Leo… And clock is ticking. Only information is that LM are checking, tracking etc…

This is completely separate from the group buy. We are still simply waiting for SB to log in and run the script for those PM’s.

This is just for the 50 lights that are for sale to the public.

It should be everyone up to ~a bit over 1400 IIRC. We had to make a few changes to make things simpler for the script and the multiple links/passwords we are using this time. The final numbers go up to a bit over 1400 I think.
