Hi Freeme,

 

I seem to remember something about the aluminum black GT Nano with the extension tube and a possible issue with damaging the LED when running in turbo too long. Do you know if the GT Nano 3 will have the same issue?

That happened in the (early) batch(es) that had a thinner PCB.
The later/current batches have a thicker DTP MCPCB (1.8mm), which is much better handling higher currents.

The GT Nano also had that issue because of the led used (osram) which is more sensitive to higher Amps. I am sure that the GT Nano 3 won’t have that issue, unless a paper thin PCB is used…

yes ok understand but 10180 is even worse battery to use.. so small capacity and hard find spares

I don't know about Sweden but, my normal sources in the USA have 10180 batteries for ~$3 each.  With 50~70mah, I tend to think these are a one-trick pony.  The AAA size 10440 to me is a lot more attractive.  Sure it is a bit longer so, maybe not as impressive to non-flashaholics and may be a bit more troublesome on a keychain but, I still find the AAA size about as small as I want to go.

It is already approaching end of the year period, new projects would probably have to take a back seat while manufacturers are busy with holiday sales shipments.

The 10180 tube makes this light… “adorably cute”, like a real miniaturized larger flashlight. But 10180 is best relegated for keychain EDC, which means infrequent. A backup. 10440 makes the GT Nano much more usable… but I’d really like to see a 14500 tube made for it. 16340 is just too fat and there are already plenty of flashlights available with that cell supported.

Is this new triple head GT Nano having about the same optic diameter as the FW3A? Carclo optics used?
