Have you ordered your BLF LT1 yet?

Hello,

Just curious has anyone else placed their order(s) for the BLF LT1 yet? I just placed it about 30 min. ago, the provided code works. Got the one w/o batteries.

Listing says this;
Get it as soon as Nov. 6 – 29

Pretty much One month + delivery time possible, just be sure your are OK with them holding your money for that long.
We get so used to seeing something with the word Amazon and think, Great! 2 days, but not in this case.

Will order one but not yet.
Later,

I waited awhile before pulling the trigger. I am really hoping the first batch doesn’t have glitches. Sending it back to China for repair is a PITA.

I made an offer on eBay like they said since I wanted the ones with batteries.

Yep, have not been very active the last couple years and I looked up Kronological and it looks like he has been gone for 1 year 7 months. Lots of crap been going on in my life. Think I have 6 or 8 reserved and was planning on buying them all unless there is some kind of limit now as happened with the BLG GT. Since I got you in this, if there is anything I can do let me know.

Ordered one off eBay using the make offer successfully, however they rejected my second attempt to buy one.

If we are being limited to one per person this is very frustrating, and seems to go against the group buy philosophy as this was not stated up front.

They did limit it to 1 per order, and 3000 total for the group buy. I sent my # on the list as well as my user ID when I ordered mine. Hopefully I can still use my other list# for my second, but not sure at this time.

Does anybody know how we will be able to know when to order to be sure we are getting a second run unit?

Anxiously awaiting codes here lol. My astrolux mfo1s is taking forever to get here as well. Must be a slow boat. Anyone notice eBay listing is 30 bucks more than Amazon?

Something I have noticed is that there appear to be very few photos of completed production run LT1s….even on their own listing they are using old photos. Do you think they are waiting for orders before actually starting to manufacture? Shipping mid november would give them enough lead time to produce them once orders are received.

Good thread, if people use it well it filters a lot of noise out of the lantern thread.

Just ordered one on Aliexpress. I’m not in the first 500 on the list but I anticipated on some first500people to want to wait for the 2nd batch Innocent . I ordered but stopped just before paying, then the order appeared in my order history as unpayed. From the order history I contacted the seller for a discount mentioning my BLF name. An hour later the price appeared adjusted and I finished payment.

Aliexpress rules dictate the item to be shipped within 5 days, so I assume that Sofirn has stock at the moment.

I haven’t ordered mine yet , I have to get a code for the lantern with batteries, I guess it is a different code.
On another note, I have been getting emails since Wednesday from Coast to buy their lantern the EAL22.
In my opinion the BLF LT1 wins hands down.

I’m getting dizzy and confused with everything… Tired Sorry if I’m being dumb but just can’t figure out what is happening.

What should I do if I’m on the list (3x) but want them with battery ?

My first one is within the 500 first.

Do I order only one for now and then wait for the second batch ?

Do I need to wait for a code ?

Buy it on ebay,ca ? Amazon,ca ?

My old and tired brain is melting…

Wait for the code, Sofirn are sending the codes manually , it will take some time to get the code, also I believe the code is good for one unit. You may not be able to buy more than one with given code at the group buy price, this is my observations based on what I read.

Great questions. It’s not very clear. It sounds like you can just submit an offer on eBay.com with your BLF name and get one for $49.99 (USD) regardless of your position on the list. It also seems like you can only buy one for now.
