My status says turnover whatever that means. No Email saying it is shipped though.

It looks like they all say “turnover”.

Edit: Except for several “Cancelled”.

It’s been saying ‘turnover’ for a while now, not sure when it changed, but I’m starting to get pretty anxious.

RIC, on the "other" forum said (12 April):

First 100 pieces has been shipped out today.

Singapore Registered post

Will inform the tracking number soon.

The rest back orders will be shipped on Sunday or Monday.

 

Now, let's hope he did shipped them, we 'll soon find out

I just got the email that says it is shipped Smile

The mail came with an extra remark that it has HAIII-anodizing now.

I just got shipping notice for one of the ones I pre-ordered! Nothing on the 2nd one yet, though…

Edit: BTW, from the tracking #, it’s shipping from Singapore.

Still waiting on shipment here too. This is my first order with them and not impressed. Emails to their sales address have bounced, they haven’t answered questions about this light or shipping in a timely manner, and they over-promise and under-deliver on timetables.

I still have not received a tracking number… emailed Ric yesterday… I’m assuming they are swamped with the roll-out… fingers crossed everything is ok…

What exactly is HA-III ?

It’s a type of Anodizing.

Anodizing is a process which increases the thickness of the protective oxide layer on the top of the aluminum. Dyes are then added into this oxide layer. This is what you see on the surface of most aluminum flashlights.

Most budget flashlights use Type II anodizing. It’s relatively thin and will scuff easily. When it scuffs, the oxide and dye layer is scraped off revealing the bare metal beneath. As the anodizing is usually a different color from bare aluminum these scuffs can make a new flashlight look like an antique pretty fast.

Type III hard anodizing (HA-III) produces a thicker oxide layer than Type II. As such, it is more resistant to scratches and scuffs. Type III anodizing is considered higher quality than Type II. Most of the non-budget high-end flashlights have Type III.

I got my email notice for one of them, with tracking # yesterday, but the tracking # is still not working on USPS.com…. I know that it sometimes take a couple of days to be visible at USPS.com.

Hi,

Do you know approx. when you bought it? If so, they include the dates on that list on the page where they show the people who bought, so maybe check there to confirm that you’re on there. I was on there twice, because I bought twice, at two different times. Earlier, RIC said they shipped the 1st 100, and one of mine was in the 1st 100, but then I also got the 2nd email, so they must be almost done shipping (or at least shipped more than the 1st 100).
