    Default Is your light... a thrower? Eh? Know what I mean?

    Greetings to the Lumen Leigon! (Is that what we are? Is there a term for us, collectively? Are we <gasp> the Illuminati? )

    As I've recently picked up a few NCR18650GA and don't think either my aging Olight M1X/Thrunite TC12v2/Nitecore HC60 will get close to their 10A discharge current, I was looking for something that might, and would add another type of light to my collection.

    So I decided I might investigate a thrower. Or, at least, a little one. I decided to get a Lumintop GT Mini Pro. Should be here Tuesday.

    It looks like from a datasheet for the INR18650-35E that appears is bundled with the light, it has a 8A maximim discharge current, so I was hoping the 18650GA would be a good match.

    Am I thinking about things correctly? Do you think this light will be a change from what I have so far?

    Any comments appreciated, thanks very much!

    Gt mini pro is more of a flooder. Regular GT mini has about twice the candela.

    Ooh! Never mind!

    I imagine that's what is expected with an OP vs smooth reflector. TIL. Thanks.

    To be honest, for me right now, a flooder probably makes more practical sense.

    And it gives me even more opportunities to learn more and buy more lights. It's all good, right?
