Copper board + 10440 = buy from me.

Hello Jordan, I hope you are well … I saw that you produce tube 10440 + copper plate for the nano gt. Can you send to Brazil? How much would it all be with shipping included? Thanks.


I think he means that if it had a copper board and a 10440 tube, then it would equal a buy from him. Which would be the same for me also!

Ok… tanks! Vinh is selling a complete one, so I don’t know if it has a copper plate.

A german would have the same difficulty understanding the sentence. We read this as “you could buy something from him”. If I had to write this sentence, it would be “it’s a buy for me.” Maybe wrong.

In this forum I learn something new every day.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

The GT nano in copper… It weighs 120g

Thanks for the link, I think that website does not have correct info. The aluminium model weights 17 grams. My Copper Maratac weighs 29 grams, and that is my guess for the weight of the Copper GT Nano.

maybe email him and ask Smile

also, one page back you can read these reports:

Vihn posted this link in his forum.

Then a member had this experience with the light from the Amazon link.

I was excited to see you post this extension for the Nano, so I quickly ordered one and it came last night. I popped a good 10440 cell in it and turned it on. All was well till I kicked it into turbo. A few seconds after being in turbo the light went very purple. I pulled the body off and the battery was not being popped up via the spring at the tail of the body. Not sure if that was the cause of the issue or not.

Now, when I put the 10180 battery in the output is lower and the overall light is purple with a small tan spot in the middle. Seems like it may have been overdriving the LED somehow… bummer. At least this happened on a fairly cheap light, I guess.

Just a warning to others, but I’m sure it’s an anomaly of bad luck for me

Hello friends of light, my beloved wife wanted to surprise me and at this dealer (SkyLumen.com) a Modified Flashlight Lumintop GT nano, on januar 12, 2021 Bought, ordered and paid with Paypal, because it takes a long time, I asked the dealer, now says it would still take two months, the Paypal Buyer Protection is yes up to 180 days safe.
The package status is In-Transit
January 26, 2021 at 10:18 pmDeparted LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES….

Do you have experience and can tell me if the dealer is good ?

Yes it is normal that packages are taking a long time to move through the USA Postal System

I mailed a package to London on Dec 18, that took more than 30 days to arrive.

Yes, Skylumen is trustworthy. Tracking confirms the USA Post Office has the package.

Dont worry
Be Happy (and patient)

Can anyone help me with the switch backlight? Mine doesn’t appear to work, been trying to get some resolution from banggood but they aren’t super helpful. I am hoping it’s just a firmware setting that’s messed up but so far resetting the firmware hasn’t helped. The process for switching the backlight isn’t super clear so would anyone be able to tell me some clear instructions on how to enable/disable the switch backlight?

Mine doesn’t work either. Seems to be somewhat of a glitch in these. Supposedly the switch backlight is very, very faint even when it does work.

My backlight is all but invisible. You need dark-adapted eyes.

That’s fine-I don’t want the drain.

Weak light is not always the same as low drain unfortunately. The average flashlight firmware is very sloppy and let a lot of current bypass the led at the lowest modes/with switch led on.

In Narsil and Anduril this is sorted because the writers (Tom and Toykeeper) made an affort to reduce parasitic drain as much as possible.

The Nano uses some form of Anduril right?, in that case you may expect low parasitic drain.

Thanks, dk! I have just ordered the GT Nano in brass. They are slowly selling out. Neal’s has already sold out, or have so listed until they receive a shipment. VIP5 coupon code saves you $5 at Lumintop.

Ordered copper, VIP5 did not work for me. I was hoping a 10440 tube for copper and aluminum would be released at the same time, but no. I’ll hope for those in the future. Usually I’ll wait for a better price but I lost out on the GT micro copper that way so paid full price.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Sorry the coupon code did not work. I had clicked on something (Dashboard – at the Lumintop site) that offered discounts at $50, $110 and $400 and clicked on “Get Now”, which is where I got the code VIP5. Apparently it only works through that link. I understand going full price – I too have lost out waiting for a better deal. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. But even at full price it is a nice and unique purchase.

For that coupon code, go to ‘your account’ at: https://lumintoplighting.com/account/
Available coupon codes should pop up. You may need an account. And you may or may not need to click on “Dashboard”. It took me a while to figure out how I did it. Clicking on the $50+, “Get Now”, should give a coupon code, VIP5, saving $5. It says good 10 times. Sorry you didn’t get it for this purchase. That one expires May 31st.

It’s OK, it’s done. You’re right, it is pretty unique. I knew if I didn’t get it I’d probably regret it.

Out of curiosity just checked Lumintop site and the copper/brass GT Nano appears to have been removed. If sold out, items are usually just marked “sold out” but not removed.

I just checked and under “new arrivals” they show 23 and 31, copper and brass, available.

Interesting…I just checked new arrivals and other catagorys again and it’s still gone from the site. Maybe my location?. Weird. Glad I got it yesterday even though I have a hint of buyer’s regret.

Not that I’ve seen. Without that it’s just a toy for showing off occasionally. But it is fun.

I wonder what would be the shortest compatible tube…that tool one looks really out of place.

for black, the Nitefox is the least expensive and as short as other twisty aaa options

for copper, the maratac on the right is shortest:

the Ti light in the picture is a Thrunite that I believe is the same size as the Nitefox, but have not confirmed.

I see, thx. Too bad that this Nitefox tube is $20 when shipped to EU.

The discontinued Thrunite TiHi fits it perfectly too and is short if you have one of those around.

I agree it is not inexpensive to add an AAA black tube to a black GT Nano

I hope you discover you already have an AAA body, that fits the GT Nano head

the copper AAA tube (Maratac) costs even more
but I already have a copper Maratac
what I dont have, is a GT Nano, so I cannot confirm it works

resisting…

Yeah, the Nitefox looks like the way to go. Looks like it was made for the Nano and is now offered at less than $11.00 with the 10% discount on Amazon.
