GTmini, 4000K... price?

I was asked how much an unused GTmini in 4000K would go for, and I have no idea.

They’re discontinued, I can’t seem to find any for sale to even gauge prices when new to “scale down” for used, so I’m at a loss.

But they at least were a hot item, and vaguely recall most were CW, so maybe 4000K might get a premium over 6500K or whatever was the usual.

No idea if she has the box or goodies or anything, so can’t say anything more about it. All I know is that it’s a working pristine ‘mini with cell.

Guesstimates as to how much one might sell for?

(No, I don’t want it, as nice as it sounds (especially the 4000K part), as I’m hip-deep in C8s and P30s and other throwers, including a coupla my own CW ‘minis.)

Sometimes discontinued is good. It becomes a collector’s piece all of a sudden. Cash

That’s what I was wondering about, if it’d go the way of the RRT or anything.

The ‘mini was The Shiite for so long, the scaled-down li’l brother of the infamous GT. Frankly, I was stunned when I heard it was 4000K, and asked “You sure it’s a GTmini??”. Yep, got a pic, it’s a ‘mini.

(Rancher of sorts, needed a “field light” to see what’s going on over yonder, and I only vaguely recall pointing her at the ‘mini, and only more vaguely recall suggesting picking a lower CT.)

I see Illumn got a ‘mini *pro” for fitty bux, but no regular ‘mini. Big honkin’ XHP50 kinda defeats the throw of whatever’s in the regular ‘mini (XP-L HI?).

4000K? Damn, I’m tempted to take it and sell off one of my CWs instead. LOL

Whaaaat, you still have CWs in your collection??? Wink I like the shape of the mini even though I didn’t get one. Only thing is I think it’s a little big for a keychain light but then again a right size for small/medium coat pockets.

“Keychain”? Sure you’re not thinking of the ‘micro (14500)?

The ‘mini (18650) is about the size of a C8 or P30.

Yeah, I’ve been trying to “research” this, and can’t get any real info, at least not as far as nowadays prices.

That sounds about what I must’ve paid back then.

Goggled the ‘mini on FT, and all that came up was a page like “Lumintop has left the building” or somesuch. Lotta other places have it as discontinued, etc.

Perplexing.

Here's some that are neutral white:

If I wanted something like that, and didn't care about getting cool white, I'd go with the GT Mini Pro.

(I'm a bit of a lumen wh*re.)

I paid Neal $40 for GT Mini NW in Aigust 2018 + $4 for a holster & $4.50 for 30Q BT. 30Q gone up a bit since. Good torch, sharp hotspot

I recall gb was mid 30s. Edit, Neil still has them now at 40 so it’s not rare yet.

At this point I’ll pass it along as between 30-35 should be a good ballpark figure for now.

Seriously? If you could wait ‘til after the weekend, I can trek on down there for a howdy and pick it up.

I’m probably going to be heading like ¾ of the way there, so a little (relatively speaking) farther wouldn’t kill me.

Well depending on condition and all that, yup. I mean I would like to say $35, that would feel better. But either way I'm interested. If it's not scratched up I'm in.

 

also- mbp just sold this exact light a couple weeks ago for $30 I believe. That's the only reference I have. I misses his! So I'd like another shot. Lol

Yeah, first thing I gotta do is find out what’s what (box’n‘goodies or not, etc.), then go see, report back, etc.

Oh, Hell, what did I get myself into… Silly

That's what it seems with neals stuff. He will have something at the "market price". The  offer 15% off which makes it seem awesome, then you realize your discount just covered your shipping costs so it's a little underwhelming .. anyway. All that to say if he lists it at $40 with a 15% discount it ends up still being $40 all said and done.
