You can order now or wait the group-buy discount code.

The discount codes are being PM’d out to people on the interest list in post 4 of this thread in order at the rate of one member every 95 seconds. Since you’re already on the interest list, I recommend waiting until you receive the code. The discount is quite large. It’s well worth waiting for the code to arrive to save some money.

I just received my PM and put in my order for two 3D with priority shipping.

It would take more than 50 hours non stop to send the codes to everyone.

I’ll update the interest list again tomorrow when the privmsg script finishes, then run the script again with the new data.

It looks like there may be quite a few people added.

Sorry for the slow speed in sending messages… the purchase page opened up by surprise, and I want people early on the list to have a chance to order first. So it’s intentionally slow.

Also, it seems things won’t ship until at least May 8, so this doesn’t actually cause any delay in how long it’ll take to receive the lights. But I definitely understand how excruciating it can be to “hurry up and wait”.

It’s currently on message 191 of 1544.

You’re on the PM list as #1300 of 1544. So it’ll probably be tomorrow night.

Thanks for the detailed info. I’ll patiently wait for PM.

Could someone please give me a quickrun down on the difference between the 2 emitter options?
Sorry, very new and have no idea what they mean
TIA!

Edit:
Looks like Cree XP-L HI 3D(NW) and Cree XP-L HI 7A(WW) LED
Neutral white vs warm white, is that the only difference?
Thanks!

it won’t cause a delay you say? Won’t they ship in the order the order was received? Wondering how long it would take to ship out over 1500 lights? Zzzzzzz.

Next time I’ll just put my name at the top of the list regardless if I want to purchase or not – that way I’ll avoid this anxiety

still, very appreciative! Thank you.

Your #2076 on the list, you can do the math.
  • 2076 × 95 = 197,220 seconds
  • 197,220 ÷ 3600 = 54.78 hours

Then take away a few hours for those that ordered multiple lights only receiving one PM…..

  • 1559 × 95 = 148,105 seconds
  • 148,105 ÷ 3600 = 41.14 hours

At number 2076, your looking at “roughly” 39 to 40 hours from the time the Group Buy went live for your PM to arrive.

You’ve got time to relax a bit….. Wink

I think this is a great way to do this. No apology needed. It is clear & straight forward…. even though going live early was a surprise.

Is the inner black sleeve electrical signal meant to be isolated from the body?
That sleeeve carries the switch signal?
Is it only isolated by the black ano finish? What happens if the ano is scratched and it makes electrical contact to the body?

For future emitters, will there be another preorder/discount or should we buy now like the opportunity will not arise again?

Basically, what you said in your edit is correct. I feel 3D is closer to cool white by my perception. I’m going for the 7A which might look a little orange to some, but it’s so much easier on my eyes anyway. It should feel more authentic on candle mode, which I’m looking forward to trying out.

I actually just made my order 5 minutes before this. First Anduril light! Yay! Thx TK!

Yes to your edit.

3D is a very neutral tone, almost like daylight. The color temperature should theoretically be 4875 +/- 125 Kelvin.

7D is a warm tone, similar to halogen lights. The color temperature should theoretically be 3125 +/- 125 Kelvin.

I went to bed at midnight last night. My Spidey sensors must’ve felt a disturbance in the force because I woke up around 4am (about an hour after PM’s started) and found my message Party

Thanks TK. Do you still not have a donation account set up?
