    I vote for olson led to go into mini gt vn.. 1st.. reflector is very good and clean.. 2nd. Cheaper host.. 3rd. Runtime will be great using lg mj1 3500 mah/ sony vtc6 protected ... this led doesnt need too much amp.

    Since the olson version is in a temporary hiatus, ended up going with SST40 6500K: 2000 Lumen, 140Kcd, 748m Throw

    I likely wont revive the GTvn Mini Oslon versions. The build takes too long to get right. I migh tbuild a couple sometime down the road as ONE-OFFs just for fun but that's it.

    Aww man, I bought the samsung hi cri version and love it. I was about to buy the oslon version as well, but oh well. If you do decide to make another oslon version could you let me know? I would snatch it up real quick, lol.

    another alternative is the d1svn. Very similar in size and performance and same ui. Oslon is $20 more expensive tho.

    All Oslon lights are pain the the butt LOL
    Most lights has reflector glued. LED can never be replaced. Good thing this LED is quite reliable.

    the GT mini has the form factor Iím attracted to more than larger lights. You mentioned countless mods are possible here. Would it be possible to hit over 500-600Kcd with any LED? Is that something you could try here since this is a very popular host and wonít be going away any time soon?

    Black Flat is the highest known luminance of any LED on market, will have to wait several years for the tech to advance for something to double the lux in this host.

    What type of technology do you think is needed to double or triple led output?

    I don't think it will happen soon. HID has many problems. But they still are orders of magnitude ahead in luminous intensity.

    HIDs are a niche and for good reasons. Lasers will certainly take a piece of their cake by being good enough yet much cheaper. But the high-end HIDs? I don't think they are threatened.

    May be super high end HID flashlights will survive but most of customers arent buying HIDs anymore....in higher end cars or at least as an upscale option LED is replacing HID now.

    Citizen CLU058-3618C4-50AL7M4-F1 has 20% larger size than CXB3590 and 3.5 times higher output. Not a thrower either, but nearly 3 times more intense than CXB3590.

    Does anyone know what firmware rev they're up to on the GT Mini? I just bought a 1.2 NW GT Mini on Nealsgadgets.com and was wondering if I got old stock. It was only $40. so I'm not complaining, jus wonderin'.

    What comparably sized (50mm or less headsize) oslon/sst led throwers do you guys prefer over the GTmini? Other than the D1S emisar... that thing is so ugly haha.

    If you want small and throw donít overlook considering the Skylumen Delta. I have some size comparison shots in the preorder thread. I think he only has a couple left. It puts both those you mention to shame.

    Thanks but Iíve already purchased (and gifted to a friend) my u21vn. It was just too big and heavy to carry in a jacket pocket on a regular basis, Iím looking for something significantly lighter / 45-50mm Head, 21700 or 18650... something between the Emisar D1 and GTmini size, geared entirely for throw to size ratio. (Bigger / better looking than the Emisar D1, basically a 21700 version w/oslon)

    Any suggestions? Budget is 120$.

    Don't think you can get better than the D1S or Mini GT at their respective sizes. V6 is actually a decently bit smaller than U21, but it has the same width head, and can only take the XHP 35 HI, since the reflector is so shallow.
