GP PAPS v2.5 LUX Edition
Well, went ahead and ordered the first batch of GP PAPS LUX. It was tough, many days of lurking on their Facebook page, then taking day-off on Thursday, May-16th/2013, the sale day, site opened @ 4pm local time (it was 11pm in Athens-Greece), their website nearly crashing (overloaded) and finally getting thru the checkout process in 45minutes... man it was tough. However, as the Paypal confirmation came thru - it seemed so worth it.
Basic features: 22mm x 60mm in 18350 mode, which is the serialized main unit. The tubes are made of aluminium-bronze, while the caps (top & bottom) being SS. All contacts and the adjustable centre post are gold over silver plated brass. And now the locking ring has 4 x 1mm ridges, which enables the LUX to stand upright even in it's unlocked state.
Price: The Mod, €120 EUR. Shipping, €15 EUR (by DHL to Canada). Total €135 EUR, which works to $181.79 CAD.
