It’s been almost a couple years now for the GT MICRO, Is there any plans for a possible GT MICRO PRO? I love my MICRO but it would be amazing to have this in the PRO lineup as well. Any thoughts Big Smile

What changes would you expect for the PRO version (regarding emitter and driver as well)?

I would like to see the OSRAM KW CSLNM1.TG with the same Texas Avenger FET driver. I am not a builder so whatever the pros think but the OSRAM would give it a concordable increase in throw and output, it is a micro thrower. Big Smile

It seems my switch started acting up. Usually need two clicks to shut off, even five once, but sometimes it works ok. Any repair for this?

I just received the Lumintop GT Micro Osram with the Vapecell H10 and am having switch issues as well. I emailed the vendor and waiting on a reply for the return. My light will come on by itself and changing modes the LED will blink sometimes and then change modes, other times it will go from high to low by itself. Other anomalies happen as well, it really is so inconsistent its impossible to write down everything that happens. My original GT micro has been rock solid.

The GT Micro has a 90 deg board mount switch, so one of the things that can go wrong is the switch tilts back, pulling off the PCB. It's happened to me with other lights, similar switches. This one looks pretty well secured but hard to tell, and hard to tell of the quality of the switch. The GT Micro is not cheap for it's size, so I would expect higher quality.

If it feels like the switch boot has to be pressed harder to make contact, then this may be the problem. I've seen it still function, just harder to press - taken apart, and the switch was tilted back.

Hello, this is my first post (but I am long time reader of the forum :D) so welcome everybody. I recently bought Micro GT (with osram led) and I tried to use it with purple efest 14500 imr 6.5A unprotected cell, flat top. When I screw down tail cap it gives 2 blinks (so connection is good?) but after that it is non responding to any clicks – I tried 1x short, 4x short (to unlock), 1x long, 1x extra long 16s, several short ones… Nothing happens any ideas what’s wrong? Maybe I need to use different cell?

Edit : after many tries it finally turned on but then again I needed to press several times and it turned off, looks like button switch is not making contact when I press for most times. Is that hardware problem and I should return it / send for warranty or is there a way to easily fix that?

GT Micro has a very slightly raised button at driver end. Maybe you’re not getting good contact?
Edit: Where did you buy it from?

Get a decent size cable, remove tail cap, touch 1 end to neg of battery and other end to end of tube. Tap on edge of tube see if anything happens

It was second hand buy (but new) so I don’t know the store, I did a try what you described and same thing happens – when I close cirtuit there are 2 blinks (so circuit is closed) but still button doesn’t work, looks like a faulty button switch…

In most cases pressing button does nothing, only after several tries it sometimes works (turn on) and then it takes another several tries to turn off or sometimes it doesn’t and I need to unscrew tail cap
