if it was ordered that early it should be arriving soon. Do you have a tracking number?

Hey folks I received a round one amazon code with batteries but my wallet wasn’t free enough for me to buy a lantern till today but I can’t seem to find an Amazon listing for the lantern, did I miss my chance to get one?

I still need 7 lanterns but they don’t seem to be available on Amazon. “Limit 1 per Cart”. I have my single use codes for the “with batteries” (I need 2) and for the “without batteries” (I need 5) options but I can’t get them in my cart. Hopefully, Sofirn will get me sorted after CNY.

I was told my codes would be good for 30 days and I received them on 12/27 (with batteries) and 12/29 (without batteries)

^^ Last I heard they were out of LT1s, and would get more in February. That doesn’t really jive with being able to put on in your cart, but just thought I would share. Sorry, no more details.

I went to buy on Amazon other day, I could not find it. I ended up buying on Ali Express, from sofirn store. It may have cost a couple dollars more, but it was in stock

A few prototypes of LT1in stock.

I ordered one of the green prototype LT1 lanterns a couple of weeks ago. At that time, the site said there were only 2 of each color left. I did get an active tracking number so I believe my lantern is on its way, but the site still shows 2 of each color left.
Just a warning for anyone on the fence about ordering a prototype color- don’t trust the quantity shown on the site.

Someone posted a shade on thingiverse for the LT1. I modified it a bit because I wanted to print it in a flexible for packability and durability. "https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4124488":https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4124488 !http://imgur.com/gallery/Vbn9d1G!

Have anyone who ordered off of Amazon near the end of November received their lantern yet?

Order was placed on Nov 25th, shipped a couple days afterwards, and I received a tracking number that hasn’t updated since it was shipped.

I ordered from Amazon on November 26 and received my lantern on December 28. My tracking number was not updated at all after shipment until about 2 days before delivery when the package when through customs in Chicago and full details were available afterward.

I would contact Sofirn as something seems wrong with your order. I ordered after you and have had my lantern for a month Sad .

Some more feedback of how it fares as a nightlamp…another potential for small improvement of future designs.
The top gathers a lot of dust. Which is not a problem by itself. But it’s hard to clean due to all that concave cutout with narrow corners.

Just wanted to say thank you to DBSAR, Sofirn, and others who helped make this lantern possible. It was imminently useful during a recent power outage, is an excellent bedside lamp, and I can’t wait to take it camping.

Bravo! Thumbs Up

Still Haven’t Received My Light!

I think I have waited long enough to see if my light might show up. The estimated delivery date was 3 thru 30 January and it is a no show.

Just sent Sofirn this PM asking them to check my order:

“BLF LT1 Lantern with batteries was purchased on 26 November and shipped by tracking number LW237753463CN on 29 November My BLF LT1.

As of today 30 January I have not received the lantern with batteries. Please check this order and insure I receive my light.

Purchase info:” (not posted here)

Sure hope I receive a positive response soon.

I’m in the exact same boat with ordering an LT1 w/batteries.

Just wait until CNY is over and the reps at Sofirn are back in the office to reply to any inquiries, guaranteed they’ll get in contact to resolve the issue.
