Lumintop GT Micro 1000lm In-depth review, Pros and Cons
The Lumintop GT Micro (GTMICRO) released in 2019. It uses Cree XP-L HI LED, SMO reflector and 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 1000 lm output, 40000 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 400 m.
The GT Micro is an impressive flashlight that offers both power and reliability. Its robust build and outstanding illumination make it a versatile lighting instrument. Instead of having to cycle through multiple modes to find the desired setting, mode memory of GT Micro ensures that the flashlight starts in the mode you prefer or need. The strobe function of GT Micro produces a high-frequency flashing light pattern that is designed to disorient or distract potential threats or aggressors.

Lumintop GT Micro (GTMICRO) specifications
The GT Micro flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Head diameter||36 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The GT Micro is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of GT Micro has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.
Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The GT Micro flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Cree XP-L HI LED|
|Color temperature||5000 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector of the GT Micro, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications.
The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the GT Micro flashlight. The GT Micro has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.
With 1000 lm, the GT Micro flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The GT Micro flashlight with 40000 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
NarsilM firmware includes thermal regulation to monitor and adjust the flashlight's output based on temperature. This helps prevent overheating and ensures optimal performance and longevity of the flashlight. The GT Micro has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The advantage of the ramping mode is that it offers precise control over the amount of light emitted by the flashlight.
Strobe mode on GT Micro flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the GT Micro produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.
|Battery||1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery|
The GT Micro flashlight utilizes 1 x 14500 Li-Ion or 1 x AA NiMH battery as its power source. The GT Micro has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The GT Micro cannot charge batteries directly. You may need an external charger to keep your battery going.
LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the GT Micro flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||2 x spare o-rings|
When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it provides a more secure and stable hold. Instead of searching for compatible O-rings or waiting for replacements to arrive, having spare O-rings readily available allows for convenient and immediate repairs or replacements.
The performance of the Lumintop GT Micro flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
