Rufus, I should have the box in the mail by tomorrow. Smile I can’t remember what was decided, do we need to get tracking, or just the standard delivery confirmation?

Tracking would be helpful as I’m not home everyday and don’t want it to sit on the porch but not everyone wanted to pay for tracking. My personal experience with tracking is it’s not worth it since half the time something marked as delivered didn’t show up for another day or two and I wasted a special trip home. That might have been due to a particular employee who has since been let go but I don’t have any recent deliveries to compare.

Hi James,

If its not to late I would like to join in too. I am happy to receive the light from EU/UK and send it off again to another continent if that helps?

I’m fixing up a TP4056 to go with the small one on the right. A chopped 10180 Solitaire with a Nichia 219

Driving home across one of the other SF Bay Area bridges.

Lucy says “Hi!”

So does Woodstock.

And Marcie likes to read BLF posts.

TP 4056 charger modded by RMM with 15k resistor to reduce output current to ~40-50mA and by me to add 10180 contacts.
It will get potted in JB weld except over the red/blue LEDs which get covered in clear epoxy. The fujik will keep the epoxy from infiltrating the micro USB port.

I haven’t heard from koyotee.

I think we’re better off sticking with the order of the list, or it might get messy! Haha, of the next person on the list isn’t avaliable just skip them, easier to keep track that way

Just kidding. I guess it’s going to Jos, I have his address. Just waiting for the last layer of epoxy to cure over the LEDs.
