That’s why I am asking now, so I can be prepared. I got my little play money budget in PayPal that is funded by selling off other toys. If I know now, I’ll make sure it’s there.
And my wife typically doesn’t cook meals on the regular since.

As far as I know the fees will be included in the price but if the final payment system changes, it is possible that could change as well.

I am thinking that a far better system, will be needed for the final payment but that doesn’t necessarily mean any extra fees.

Kind of expect Neal to pass along the information to LT and them sending a PayPal invoice of $97/$146 for the base scenario.

Funny how much life the money has brought into this thread, it has never been so active as now, not even at the beginning when the GT project was announced, or when we discussed the design or the reflector Big Smile

BTW, is there any estimated time or date when this light will be available?

Sent payment. Providing 5 days was a good idea. I left for the mountains right after getting off work, just got back home, and fortunately there’s plenty of time to spare rather than losing out because I’m not glued to my phone.

People dropping out must have put me on the first group. I didn’t expect that, and wrote off my chances of being on this group buy. Thanks for being on the ball with a current list.

The low mode should be lower.

It might be a good idea just to plan on the 6.85% PayPal fee on the second payment of $97 also. Then no problems.
That will be an additional $6.65.

Then if LT does not charge it…. all the better.
If they do charge it, ya’ got it covered.

They likely aren’t going to bother removing people/editing the list other than to add names at this point. If you don’t want the light, just don’t pay the $14.

I had a typo in the PayPal comment. I wrote, I`m number 73, but I`m 76. Is that a problem?

Yes we leave the lists as they are during this phase
However it is good to read if somebody wants out, makes it clear thus helps.

In case of typos and such, please reply to the PM so Neal has the best overview to add 1 and 1.

Do we have any preliminary results of this first-round payment? I have a feeling that maybe 80% of 555 made a reservation with 15$…..

Just to be clear if I did not get a PM I do not need to send anything yet? Because I did not receive a PM.

Sorry, you just missed out. In post #3, I found your name as # 575 in the list, so you just missed the top 555 frown

Bummer. Oh well. I still want to get one somehow if I can when they hit the market.

Well, you have a legit shot at making it in the top 555. The top 555 is  about price and delivery time (I assume) - that's it. It's $111 for the top 555, 1 per person, or $150 after the top 555. Between those dropping out or not responding in the top 555, a bunch more, I think, will be getting pm's, but we have to wait a few days.

I'm hoping this is the way I understand it - that if, for example, only 500 of the 555 reply, then 55 more slots will be open, then 556 to 610 will get pm's. It's all about the order in post #3.

Actually you got lucky being bumped well up on the list. Believe me, I'm one of those who got messed up when it changed to only one piece per person, because I signed up for 1 for a friend early on, and now I or the friend will have to pay the extra money frown Might ask him if we can split the difference, so ~$130 each.

I’m 557 so I gues I have really big chance to get one of first 555.
Or am I wrong?
