    Bit late to this one. I posted on BLF asking to be added to the list. Is this all I need to do for now? It's all very confusing.

    VOB, that really was an amazing video. This is the first time in a long time I've splurged on a purchase. That's the highest praise I could give you.

    Yes, at the moment that is all. Eventually you will get a PM with a coupon code and a link to M4D M4Xs website for the checkout.

    Mad or anyone who knows how does one usually get info or notification on shipped items? I've never done DHL before so I was curious.

    Neal will send you an email with tracking number. Then you can add text notifications, too. Not all have shipped, but progress is fast.

    Mine was "released" by customs today, but I think the light is still in Cincinnati.

    BLF seems to be down, so I'm not up to date on general progress.

    I got a shipping notification on this light a couple days ago along with a DHL tracking number.

    It pulls only 2.5 amps on turbo so pick a battery based on that. (I'm using VTC6 in mine).

    About $40 per set of 8 if ordered with the light.

    I hope to have mine today. I was 59 or so on the list and 311 on the paid list. The light shipped last thursday and was in the state the next day. But was handed off to USPS for my delivery. So after the holiday weekend, it should be here today or tomorrow.

    Exciting times, Fresh Light. I can't wait to have that "I can't wait" feeling.

    So I just got a text saying my GT is on the way via DHL. It says destination is:

    LATHAM, NY -
    BINGHAMTON - USA

    I'm assuming everything is fine but I don't live in Latham but I do in Binghamton. Think it warrants an email to Neal? I don't want to bother him if I don't have to.

    Maybe Latham is a distribution center and then it would go to Binghamton?

    Did it specifically give your address when tracking via DHL?

    Where do you get to choose registered shipping instead of DHL? DHL to the UK will get hammered in fees. Also does the registered shipping come in two parcels?

    I agree. My experience is that the bigger the light the less often I will bring it out. I recently ordered Thrunite TN42, which is big as well and not possible to carry in the jacket pocket. Apart from the size I find 4cells to be the limit for what I am ready to charge. Consequently TN42 is the limit for me. Anyway I appreciate this thread and find BLF GT very interesting light! I just realized it's too big for me.

    I agree. For our uses, just not needed. Fun to read about though.

    For a single emitter spotlight, seems like two batteries is plenty enough capacity for just about everyone's tasks. Supposedly the long handle filled with batteries helps to balance the weight of the reflector better. Guess it would be too expensive to build a host with a dual battery-housing integrated right next to the reflector-housing and doubling as a carry handle, with the user's fingers between the battery pair and the reflector-housing.
