Location: This is not a real account. Contact Neal for support instead.

Private messages are going out now, with coupon codes and information about how to make a purchase.

Since the process is spread out over time, it has a delay between each message. It looks like it’ll probably finish going through the list in about 41 hours.

These messages are sent in the same order as the interest list, so if you’re near the top you should get a message soon. If you’re near the bottom, it’ll probably be tomorrow.

To give people a bit more time to sign up, I plan to update the list again tomorrow and run a second batch of messages after the first one finishes.

DrafterDan, I don’t see your name on the list. Did you order at full price or something?

Got my account setup at Neal’s Gadgets. Now I just need the email! Silly

How big is the delay between each email?

If it is not too late, I am in for ONE light with the higher CRI leds (not the on with xpl-HI it is launching with).
If I can order one with no bunnies or other animals, then that would be perfect.

If I got more than 2, I’d have to build a bigger doghouse so I could sleep in it once my wife noticed. If we are still adding to the list, I guess the appropriate thing to do would be to add me on the list for a second one, and I will wait for that notification before I purchase the second.

I hope the button is still bunny-less by the time high CRI options are available Blushing

That’s ‘interesting’ since this was your first post in this thread & your not even on the list. Unless of course you ordered at full price??

If you didn’t pay full price…. how’d you pull it off?? Get someone to tell you the code??

EDIT: Paid full price, congrats on getting one. Beer

I’m excited that the time is here for them. Smile Thanks TK and team for all the work you’ve done!

I hope the SST-20s come out soon for the light as well. The high CRI has really grown on me when out running with my D4S even though the color temperature is slightly warmer than I wanted (I really like the ~4750K of my Foursevens Mini MKII). It helps quite a bit distinguishing items on the ground when running. Thanks again everyone!

Put me down for 2.
(An XPL and a Hi-CRI)
These look fantastic.

Also, I thought I was already a member here. Thanks for motivating me to finally register. Been coming here for years.

@ToyKeeper, thanks so much for all your work on this. And of course also to Neal & FW3A Team.

So is this first batch with the BLF discount only going to be XP-L HI, and that SST-20 will be at a higher price?
Also, if the only branding to be added is the bunny on the tail switch, is that etched into the metal or painted on?

First batch is XPL HI only. Hopefully later there will be an SST-20 version at a lower price. SST-20s are cheaper so should cost less.

Got my code, ordered right after.
XP-L HI 3D will do, until I swap the LEDs

Yes, the SST-20 will be cheaper - says in the pm what that price is. Dunno if I'm allowed to post... laughing

I need to talk to Neal about yours, actually. You were part of the project originally, so you should get at least one light free.

It looks like about 95 seconds each.

Also, the PM list isn’t identical to the interest list. It’s still in the same order, but with duplicates removed. One person can have many entries on the interest list, but can only appear once in the PM list. So the PM list is in order of first appearance on the interest list.

In practice, this means your PM number is lower than the request number.

I think the SST-20 version will probably be $30. Hopefully soon, since it’s easy to get those emitters in FB4 tint. Removing the FA/FD tint requirement allows things to happen much faster.

About the Lumintop-branded version, the bunny is etched into the tail.

The TLF/BLF group buy version has no logo or other markings on the light. It is completely blank.

So there is no guarantee that there will be HI-cri leds ever in this light and no guarantee that the codes will or won’t expire while we are waiting?

Thanks for this info.

My guess is I should get my my PM code in 3-5 hours. I’m around number 200 on the list. Innocent
