EU, Slovenia

who should I contact if I want to get info when my GT will be shipped, is this even possible or do I have to silently wait, maybe it will arrive in February, maybe April, maybe….??

kind regards

You live in the “neighborhood”. Smile I live in Hungary. Unfortunately, delivery is still in progress. Maybe we get it now.

I really hope so. I don’t like the fact that all FL were first shipped to US, and smaller countries are on the end. Not the right approach. We paid the same money as everybody else in US…

If only 2 or 3 people from our country ordered this FL, and from US – 350 people, I don’t care. Delivery shold be made acording to GB list. Now people which are on the list 800+ already have this FL, me which was on 116 place still do not know when FL will arrive.

Shipping to US first is probably just to rationalize the process and not surprising given the bulk of orders were from the US, also please do not try to contact anyone with request for shipping info unless absolutely necessary as it will only delay things more, i’m confident everybody will be taken care of even if it takes time

I’m in 134. We have to wait, but it’s a bit unfair. I’m not talking about the Blf team just about Lumintop. If I knew, I would order Dhl. I waited for it all year,I will wait another month or two.

I am in the first 555 paid, registered shipping, no batteries to the UK & have not been posting in this thread just patiently waiting Smile Am I right in thinking that the last of the first 555 DHL shipments have now been made & that next week the first of the non USA non DHL shipments will be sent ?

What, I chose DHL to the UK but haven’t received or even heard anything? Do I need to make a paypal claim? I was patiently waiting too but can’t check everyday so missed DHL UK shipments Facepalm

Teacher your video forced me to imagine Rocky having 2 GT-s, one in each hand, running, punching and lifting weights Big Smile Big Smile

Having two will indeed be nice for exercise and building some muscles Cool

Nope, just wait for it to be shipped to you. Smile

But have I missed the UK DHL? I have had terrible luck recently with post, even internal to the country (the company I work for have recently called police to investigate lots of missing post), I don’t want to just leave it and miss out any chance of a refund.

If it’s coming then that’s fine, no worries I can wait for that, I’m worried the mail has been sent but is missing.

I’m in the US and just got a text from DHL a couple hours ago. Somehow I’m even more impatient now than I was before. I’m so ready to get this light that I don’t need, and don’t have anywhere near by to even see it’s max potential.

Do they just text from the number you provided on the order or do you have to make an account or something? I get notified on FedEx and USPS but never had DHL before.

I got a text via the phone number I included with my order. I did not have to sign up or anything. The text has a link to track. Signature required, so It won’t be left without your knowledge.there is also a link to print a form allowing you to sign in advance. I signed the form and had it taped to my door because Iwill not be home to sign personally

Does anyone know where I can purchase the same XHP35 HI 4000k D4 LED emitters used in the BLF GT? I want to reflow a few into some of my lights. Thanks.

I’m sorry, but it is not available for sale right now. Existing orders are still being fulfilled. Once the light goes for sale to the public, Madmax might have a sale on them.

You can send him a PM, personal message, and ask if he will notify you when he puts them up for sale.

It may be a couple of months, though.

Does this sound accurate? I added it to post #1.

Quote:
Tracking notices are coming in for the 4th shipment saying it will ship on the 20th. So far there are 3 people, all in Singapore, and their lights are expected on the 23rd. They signed up for DHL, but it seems that Neal is sending them by FedEx, instead. There is also one USA order being sent by DHL.
