Can someone clarify for me, what’s the purpose of the interest list when you can order the Mini directly on the sofirn website?

As with the LT those on the list are supposed to get a discount code when production begins. I actually asked Barry yesterday how they’re going to handle that process. Hopefully he’ll respond to that PM.

The same colors as the full-size LT1 will be available for the LT1M. Big Smile We are awaiting for the group-buy code now as Sofirn gets it into production.

Cool, thank you! I guess I better read from the top and see what I am in for, still waiting on my LT1 from China.

Been using my LT1 Mini for a little while now, and I’m impressed with it.

I really like how it feels in hand. It’s much nicer to grab and use around the house due to it’s weight compared to a full-sized LT1, and the button is the same satisfying button and boot used on the LT1, Q8, etc.

I don’t like how blindingly bright blue they chose to make the charge/powerbank indicator light, but it otherwise doesn’t matter in day to day use where the light isn’t plugged in. Surely an easy modification with a resistor swap at some point.

At this size a magnetic bottom or optional tail cap would have been wonderful, this size of lantern is practically begging for one.

All in all, absolutely love it.

The last email from Barry was on 5/5 regarding how the codes would be sent out. I just sent him a pm asking what the status was on the production run. Hopefully he’ll respond shortly.

Barry just replied and said that they are waiting on parts production and that assembly will begin soon.

I will be sending PM’s for those on the interest list with buying info and the discount code very shorty (basically as soon as Barry gives me the go-ahead). Once I do that I won’t be adding to the interest list so if you’ve been thinking about signing up you should do so soon.

This will be mentioned in the PM but the first batch is only black. According to Barry there will be other colors in the future but he didn’t say when that would be. There will not be an interest list for colored version’s unless someone else wants to maintain it Silly

As of today 796 active users have signed up for a total of 1,376 mini’s.
