I ordered only the conversion kit because the coupon does not work with the cell carriers, not even in separate orders.

When the cell carriers are at the offered price I will buy them.

Hmmmm…. that is strange. It worked for me. The Code knocked $20 off the price of the carriers….. making them $28 for a set of two.

Oh yeah, it seems they are just sold in pairs… no singles.

I deleted the cookies and… it worked!
Thanks!

They appear to be selling 3 different items on this one page.

1. CW conversion kit
2. NW conversion kit
3. Carriers x 2

Yes… that would be correct. And only 1 item per order for the discount code to work properly for each item. Wink

It is a puzzle that works great…. when it is figured out. Big Smile

I think TA will need to ask them why the coupon is not working for the carriers. Lumintop may not even be aware of the problem.

It seems they have several glitches in their website. It might take a day or so for them to get it all working smoothly.

The Discount Code is working for the Battery Carriers Jason.

Just keep in mind the blf gt is very difficult to open and shaving the xhp70.2 will result in green tint..

Slicing the NW led might very well have some green in it since it is a tint code C. The B and C leds are towards the green side of the Black Body Locus (BBL).

The CW is right on top of the BBL, so it probably won’t have much green or pink in it. It should have a more neutral tint, not to be confused with the neutral white color temperature.

Got my NW BLF GT70 ordered with discount.
My workaround to get my order in with discount.
- followed the email link
- logged into my account
- did a search for blf gt70
- clicked on blf gt70
- choosed NW as my LED
- NONE on Battery option
- added Lens cover accsessory
- ADDED to Cart
- clicked on secure checkout
- added Coupon Code from Email
- Clicked on Determine Order tab
- completed purchase with PayPal
- final price fot GT70 and Lens cover $225.00

I had to create two separate orders for conversion kits in order to get the dicount for each.

I created an account prior to ordering.
got email confirmation for my orders
-

Yep, this is the process^

Ok everyone, finally back online, they always seem to send these emails out when I am away from the computer.

It looks like people had some issues with the links in the email at first. They changed the links after the email text was put together and combined them into the same link as you figured out.

You are correct that you now follow the CW link and just select the NW tint in the options, this is how I asked them to do it at first but they put a separate page up for some reason and now apparently put them all in a single page.

You also must order the conversion kits separately for the code to work I am afraid.

For the conversion kits, they do not include the carriers, that is a mistake on the website, you can buy them separately though. I will ask about the single carrier price but my guess is since I can’t think of a reason to only buy one, we would be better off not complicating things by trying to get another code for a single carrier.

The $28 for 2x is working correct?

Anyone that has not gotten the email send me or JasonWW PM and we will get you a copy of the email.

Anything else I missed that needs to be addressed?

Now to update the OP.

QUESTIONS:


1) When will we see a demonstration of the comparison between the CW and NW?


2) I submitted my interest in the NW. Can I change my mind and order the CW instead?


 


thanks in advance.


 

1: Not sure when someone will have both side by side to compare.

2: Yes, you are welcome to order whatever tint you want. The tint poll in the form was simply a poll to get an idea of how many of each tint to make.

Worked fine for me too, I think that’s an excellent price for a pair a carriers, even if the are in fact different than the ones in the original GT.

What’s the purpose of a spare set of carriers?

They are not needed, purely optional.

It is hard to find carriers for custom mods to lights or in case something went wrong and you needed a replacement so some people are getting them while they can.

I couldn’t get any of the discounts to come through. I prob should have tried manually typing. But it went to PP and said after hitting continue it would go back to the Lumitop site to finish. But after hitting continue on PP it is ordered, unlike any other transaction I have done. Luckily I had only ordered just a conversion kit. The site doesn’t allow you to cancel paid orders so I emailed them and Leo with the discount email. I’d like to get this fixed so I could order the rest of my stuff.

Yes, you need to manually type the code in if it does not give you the discount (or try backspacing 1 letter and typing it again first). You can add the next item to your cart and try it now if you want.

Leo should get you taken care of.

ok, so i try to open the http://www.lumintoponline.com/lumintop-gt70-conversion-kits-p1523919.html website, but nothing works properly.. all i get is a bunch of text, and can’t add to my cart, or purchase the GT70conversion kit. is their site a joke or for real? there is no images or formatting, and none of the add to cart of buy option buttons work.
Try another browser, your link works fine for me. Only problem being the apparent “Discount glitch” I mentioned above.

I got the same results with Chrome & Firefox.

Try clearing your cookies and cache, they updated the website and your browser may still have the old page cached and that would cause an issue.

Got my nw conversion kit ordered using chrome on my phone and selecting “request desktop site” in the browser settings. To make the code work, I pasted it in, and just clicked on the “order notes” text box, and the page updated with the discount. Weird. But hey it worked. Thanks everyone!

Cree XHP70.2 – Neutral White is a 5000k P2 3C.
Cool White is a 6500K P2 1A

What are the theoretical lumen differences between these two?

And about how many lumens will I lose by using the normal GT battery carriers?

Thanks

On paper they should be the same lumens bu they also have a 14% tolerance range, so rarely are they the same.

Also the tint bias on most meters will cause the CW to read higher.

To the human eye though, you will hardly be able to tell, get whatever tint you prefer over worrying about paper numbers.

The springs on the new carriers appear to be the same as the GT carriers, so the difference should be minor if at all.

Ok thanks for the info. I was planning on dedoming and thus was originally wanting CW, but I’m thinking the domed version throws far enough, and I really love the tint on my Q8 which is close to 4500-5000k from what I remember. So I may end up ordering NW.

I prefer the domed version myself, I don’t like the tint shift when it is dedomed.

After a couple of weeks with my GT70, I can say that I’m 99% happy with this monster. The minus 1% is due to the lanyard holes do not line up. Not the end of the world. It is heavy and I need to get a shoulder strap for it. Any recommendations?

You do know that the tail lanyard hole is on a ring that can rotate, although somewhat stiff?

The tailcap should spin to allow the holes to line up. A few said that there was a burr on it that needed to be cleaned off. You can remove it from the inside with a pair of needle nose pliers. the center section unscrews from the outside.

There is a full breakdown of the tailcap with pictures in this link. Unfortunately, I can’t copy the post here.

Just use it as a spare carriers, or in the future, some machine shop will make a coupler which you can run 12 cells.
