I finally had to recharge my LT1, after plenty of use. I enjoyed finally seeing the various LED colours for myself.

However, since charging, when the lantern is off, it is doing a strange two-level flash with the orange LED in the button: off, low, off, high. I can’t find any reference to what this means. Battcheck says 4.2v. is there something I overlooked?

Have you done a 7x click? On Ardúril lights with AUX LEDs, this changes the LEDs from low > high > beacon > off, and it also affects the switch backlight.

not sure why this would have changed from before charging, but if you press the on-off switch 7 times, starting with the LT1 from the off position, the behavior of the switch LED will change to next off, 7 clicks again will make the backlight low, 7 more clicks to the backlight on high, then 7 more clicks to the state you described above.

Looks like ^^ I came in 2nd place here . . . Facepalm

Thank you both for your help. I have not clicked it seven times, however I can easily imagine my son doing exactly that. Thanks for the lightning fast responses!

There are two versions – one is too short, the other may work but is a little wide.

I got a code from Sofirn on Nov 21, I bought one on or near that day, it shipped out (reached China Post) 12/5, and is in route. I believe this would be the 2nd batch, but not 100% sure. the message I got from Sofirn with my code was
Quote:
1. This is preorder sale, all orders will be shipped in the end of November. And usually it arrives in 3 weeks. You might be lucky enough to receive it before Christmas but there is not guarantee. Thank you for your patience.

Since I bought my first lantern in October, I’m guessing this is batch 2.

I held back so someone with more desire to get one before Christmas would have a better chance. Then I decided I’d waited enough.

My Amazon order on Dec 3 says it shipped Dec 4, and to expect delivery between Jan 9 and Feb 5. As of today, Neither Amazon nor 17 Track have any information on my order. I hope to see some movement data by the end of the week, but I’m not holding my breath.

Tracking won’t update, it will show up at your address some random day, and tracking will still never update. I’m sure it’s in transit.

I think the wait for the small resistors I ordered will take longer to arrive than my light did. Hopefully before end of month. I’ve been waiting for 3-weeks on that with no track-able status. Already received two sizes of enamel wire from China via eBay, for the usb-c cable charging mod posted earlier.

Is the possibility of colored versions still alive, possible dates?

I’m trying to decide on my purchasing strategy.

Thanks,

It sounds like colors are possible, but there’s no estimate of when. The anodizing contractor is wrapped up in legal issues and it seems Sofirn will either have to wait indefinitely or find another anodizing company.

So the black lanterns are available now, but colorful ones could be delayed for a long time.

Barry is working pretty hard on finding solutions, but for now it’s like an original Ford Model T — you can have it in any color you want… as long as it’s black.

If other colors are produced, Sofirn will send new coupon codes for it. The coupons for the black version won’t work for other colors.

That makes sense,
I just received my code today as well, are these codes good for 30 days only still? I really wanted to get a colored one I am unsure whether or not to buy now as well, or wait a few weeks ago and see what happens

Mine was dispatched on 3rd of December but 17track says only “This number can’t be found at this moment. It’s not available in the carrier’s system yet. Please check back later.”. No information on amazon’s side either.

The first movement of my package was on 30/11 when it left the distribution center GuangDongShengGuangZhouShi 51016508 before being sent overseas via airmail after reaching the second distribution center GuangDongShengGuangZhouShi 51040034 on 06/12. Now I’m just waiting for it to enter the Royal Mail system where it can be reliably tracked. Based on previous orders I have placed I expect it to arrive here sometime during the next week.

Received a code and ordered my second from amazon.de today. Was #2562 for it, so they must be nearing the end of the list.

No second code for me at 1597. I have 5 additional reservations. Are we to buy all remaining lanterns with the next code or is it still one per code?

Sorry if it has been asked and answered already…there’s just soooo many posts to sort thru.

Just got my 2nd code today. My question…if I don’t use that code within 30 days because I prefer to wait for a colored version…do I give up the opportunity to purchase at GB price??

You should ask Sofirn. PM back to them. The production and sales is their game, I believe. And the colors could be a long time coming. Maybe black is best?

20 times per person or 20 times total for all orders?

Yes. Wink

Actually, it doesn’t look as if the code stacks in the same order. I’m wondering if he means a total of 20 times, so first come first served.

I think it means total of 20 times. I am not familiar with the setting so far.

Is there any issue in the whole process?
