any news on registered package ?

I haven’t heard anything. The shipments from the 27th and 3rd where just DHL because they where on pallets. This shipment on the 9th seems to have a wide variety of destinations. All we have to go by is people posting here about their orders.

Add a Joshi to make the BLF looks small, and perspective

With Joshi on top, it looks half as big Silly

I have some news on emitter swaps.

I talked to Richard at Mountain Electronics (RMM on these forums and a sponsor here) and told him there might be more than a few guys with GT’S interested in swapping to a cooler tint. He says that if you send in your stock mcpcb to him and buy one of his new XHP35-HI emitters, he will reflow it for free! He has 2 choices right now, 5,000k and 5700k tint. They are both the same D4 brightness bin as the stock GT 4000k emitter.

The cost of both are under $8, plus the shipping cost there and back. I’m in Texas and shipping a small package from him is usually $2 to $3. So I would estimate the entire cost at under $15.

From his store:

Quote:
BLF GT LED SWAP

​Don’t like the tint of your BLF GT XHP35 HI?  Send us your MCPCB and we’ll swap it for this one. 

Please ship your BLF GT MCPCB to us and we will swap it, test it, clean it, and send it back to you.

Your entire order will not ship until we receive the LED and get it ready to ship.

Ship to:

Mountain Electronics LLC
8076 S. Box Canyon Rd.
West Jordan, UT 84081

Here is the link to the 5000k.

Here is the link to the 5700k.

If your outside of the USA, then I’m not sure what shipping would be or if he even does international shipping. You’d have to contact him for details.

That is awesome, Richard is the best! Not an option for us in the rest of the world because of expense I’d say (but yes, he does do international shipping usually), but then again, I’d much rather have a warmish neutral than a coldish one… Smile
Wouldn’t mind 5000k, but doubt I’ll think it’s worth the trouble to change the LED when the light arrives.

@DB Custom and lawallac
thanks, but no result. Switch cover is definitely not opaque, I unscrewed it.
It must be lighted, at least after successfull factory reset.

Let me see if I can understand.

You never saw any green light from the switch, even though the main led works fine?

You were able to unscrew the switch cover, but it is or isn’t opaque?

Opaque meaning solid, so no light gets through.

It should look like this:

If light does NOT go through your switch cover then send a PM to Texas_Ace and he will see you get a new one.

Ps, do your green leds light up?

They are a lot weaker than on the Q8.


.


My switch cover looks exactly the same. Green leds do not light up.

I am not new to flashlights. So I could remove the driver and see if there are any issues. But it would void the warranty.


I don’t think it would void the warranty.

It should be pretty easy to check for power on the led. Just set your DMM to DC volts and probe the rear of the switch pcb on the black and white wires. You should see 2.18v. The white wire is ground and the black wire is for the switch leds. (The red wire is for the e-switch and has 5v to it)

If you see no voltage, then it’s possible your black wire to the switch came loose or the firmware is not sending the signal out. Maybe yours is set to off by default? You could make sure the settings are turned ON. You can see on the bottom of page 6 in the GT manual that there are 3 options.

If you DO see voltage, the software is working fine and it might be your tiny resistor by the leds not making good contact.

Here are some pics.

If you don’t feel up to checking it, I would PM Texas_Ace about getting it fixed (assuming it bothers you).

Black cable was not connected to the driver. Problem solved.
Thank you so much BLF GT Team, for this beautifull monster Smile

Did the wire break loose or was it not soldered? If it looks like a manufacturing issue we should let Neal know about it.

I’m glad it was an easy fix.

Probably an isolated case.
Not really something to worry about at this point.

Glad it was just a loose wire.

I’d say it is still better to let them know rather than let it slip.
Sure it could be a very isolated case but I’d rather know than not.

I’m didn’t receive the GT at this moment. It’s my brother Megabassie. I hope mine will arrive today. Keep you updated. We can conclude that the European shipment of Saturday has reached Europe, but not all addresses.

Interesting. I think these drivers arrive at Lumintop with the switch already soldered.

I wonder why this wasn’t caught when they did the testing on it? It’s possible they are in a brightly lit area and can’t really see the green leds.

Anyway, I’ll pass this info on to TA.

Added.

Did they go through DHL? The paid list has them as registered, but I know a lot of folks changed it after paying.

I think black wire is not for switch.
It is for LED (XHP 35 HI), or not???

i think you are referring to the Negative Led wire on the right of the above photo. if this wasnt connected the Led (XHP35 HI) would not work.

there is also a smaller black wire that leads to the switch. you can see it on the left under the red and white wires, im guessing this is the one in question.

Quality before quantity!

I will have no problem in waiting some weeks longer, as long as quality is high!

If the light was delivered by Banggood,I would have already it via priority mail,(half the time of the registered mail), with the bonus of neither had been inspecting it by Customs nor paying a penny in taxes and fees.
I tried to pass the information to several guys of the GT team plus Neal,but I couldn’t succeed in getting this option. Sad

Yay! #123 on the list finally shipped and delivered to Canada. I was very impressed with DHL shipping. I had to pay $20CAD to customs but the light shipped Tuesday and delivered Wednesday so I am still happy to go with DHL.

My reflector has an orange peel texture.
