[in memorial] Old-Lumens ltd. Edition: Astrolux A01

My dear friends!

the community has lost a great member and mentor - Justin (Old Lumens) has died after a long fight against cancer cry


one ofhis last projects was a light which carries his name:


Swi from banggood already sent the commission for 50 Lights upfront (to save PayPal fees) and plans to send the second half asap after she got informed that Justin passed away.

If you want to get one of this lights just order usind the links below or directly on the shop if you prefer!

 

 

--------------------------------
the original thread:


Old-Lumens wrote:

Banggood has now honored their agreement, so if any of you want to buy one of these lights with the Old-Lumens Logo, please feel free to go ahead and purchase knowing that Banggood will honor the payment to me. I received my first paypal payment from them. Only a couple have been sold, but they did honor it. For every one sold, I will get 8% of the sale. Well, Valerie will get 8%.

 

I do not know about any other lights right now, like the F13. I am not doing too good and don't know if I can work any more deals, but get an A01 with my logo if you want. You might want to mention you are a blf member in the notes when buying, but it should not matter. They should honor all sold, no matter what.

 

Thanks to all of you.

 

EDIT:  I mean a HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU

 

i am happy it finally goes the way Neal has discussed with Justin Smile

 

-------------------------------------------------------------

€dit:

i offered Justin to share my account...

 

i will collect the commission made by the light and paypal it to him directly.

the only problem is that it happens that a order is not correctly linked to my account sometimes.
-> if one sends me the ordernumber i can look if it was counted - if not we can find a solution Wink

my promise:
if anyone orderes the light using my link(link is external) i will send the earned money to Justin!

 

the light is available 

what happened since Justin closed the other thread?
(which i am deeply sorry for) 

please do not buy ATM as i am not sure which compensation agreement is between banggood and Old Lumens

Interested! I don´t want to sound picky but isn´t the way they engraved “limited” a bit misleading since the abbreviation “Ltd” they used is normally only used for companies ?!?

I was wondering about that too, that looked like a lot of light for the price and a must buy.

I have absolutely no knowledge about this! I have not been contacted by Banggood! I was supposed to receive 8% of the sales, but it looks like they are just using my logo. Until they contact me, it is bogus, but there is nothing I can do about it.

I agree with the OP then. At least for me, I was on the list for the original GB, and I’ll just wait until we get confirmation from O-L that the deal he HAD is still going to be honored.

More dirty dealings by Banggood. I was going to buy both of the OL lights but I won’t be buying them like this.

Has anyone asked BG what the intention is with this light? They may live up to the 8% deal but forgot to tell OL.

Well, I don’t know who at Banggood is in charge of this. Remember that Neal has been fired a while back.

I would ask if they plan to give him the 8% directly…if not…remove his name from the product.

Awesome Martin! That’s a plan I can get behind, if Justin approves. I’d still like to hear something official from Banggood though.

I am thankful to M4D M4X or anyone who can help work out the situation. I believe that stopping Banggood from using my logo is a thing of the past, so any way to get them to own up to what Neil had promised, is a good thing. I, personally, am just tired of Banggood and do not want to deal with them. I will leave it all up to y'all and if you need something from me, I will try to help, but me and Banggood are done for good, as far as I am concerned.

 

Thank you all for such patience and such support throughout all this time. It has been and continues to be the light in the porch window for me.

I stand by what Old says. Do not buy the light unless he gets what he is owed! Its nice of you M4D M4X to do that thank you. But we may just make the situation worse? I am sure Banggood doesn’t want hundreds of lights they can not sell. So they need to come clean on the deal! Plus they may have the F13 in stock also?

Just to update this. I just received a message from someone at Banggood names Swi, who wants to all of a sudden, be friends and make flashlights with my logo.  I think he might be a little slow on the take, since they already are doing that, without my permission.  I simply told him that when Banggood pays 8% of the sale of every light sold with my logo so far, to me, into my PayPal account, then we can talk, but if he says that it was not ever approved by Banggood, then I will know he is full of it and I will stop communications with them. I can't see this as ever being anything good, but maybe I will be surprised. I could use a good surprise for a change, LOL.

Anyhow, I just wanted to let y'all know what is going on at the moment and I will keep you informed, if you want, that is.

 

Thanks,

Justin

Hello Justin,

Apologize again for our mistakes.

Of course, we will follow what Neal promised you and pay for you seem like we started as agreed.There are few flashlights have already sold.I will ask the colleague to follow up it. Please don’t worry! Wait for a while patiently.

Because I returned maternity leave at the end of Nov and taken over this forum,need time to follow up all things one by one, including yours.Anyway, we will solve this as soon as possible.

On behalf of banggood to apologize to you once again, thank you for understanding!!

Best Regards,
Swi

Thanks to Swi for picking this project up where it was dropped Thumbs Up And to M4DMAX for nudging it along again. I was going to get one of these but finances slowed me and then things went awry, but now that we’re back on track I’m ordering one now.

This thread needs a bump Wink I received mine and am happy to say it looks better than the pics show. I tested it and removed the cell as this light will get it’s place of highest honor in my small collection. It’s truly the nicest light I own.
