please avoid ordering from phones (most issues) and "special" browsers

 

if you have strange problems try and start with a new session "private window" to avoid cookie monsters Wink 

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being
maybe M4D M4X will return one day, but until then:

THANK YOU FOR YEARS OF YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDLY CONTACTS!

Quick battery question: anyone using the LG MJ1’s for this light? They seem to have identical specs to the Samsung 35E cells, 10A continuous discharge and 3500mAh capacity.

LG MJ1 has a positive flat top that doesn’t protrude and won’t make contact because of the reverse polarity protection of the battery carrier. But an LG MJ1 would be fine with button top.

This was probably answered earlier but this thread is already getting massive. They are still doing another batch for everyone over 1450 correct?

Flat tops won’t bother me since I can just solder blob them and call it good.

We will see if that needs to be implemented in about 5 to 6 weeks.
No worries… there is a lot to remember. Wink No way for any one person to remember it all.

Contrary to Teachers response, I would have to say No, there is not a guaranteed supply for people on the group buy list at the level your currently listed (fourth batch of PM’s, #1426 and higher)

Of the 710 people waiting to buy lights, there are only 650 lights available. TA and I believe that there will be a fair number of people that decide not to purchase and/or drop out.

In 2 weeks we will see what the drop out rate is for the 3rd batch. There could be enough for everyone in batch #4 or it might be close.

Then in 4 weeks the last PM’s will go out and it will be a first come, first serve basis. I think everyone that orders in the first few days or week will get one, but if demand is still higher than supply, the people that try to order a week or two after the last PM’s arrive might miss out.

Again, we really don’t know for sure the drop out rate.

If there is not enough supply for fourth batch as a whole, I think it would be fair enough to limit all remaining orders to just one light per order. I’m sure it wouldn’t help much but keeping bunch of people waiting for their light’s and then after months of waiting say “No, sorry. There is not enough for you.” is quite unfortunate. A week ago I was waiting to receive my PM “any day” and then I saw that this third batch was cut off just before my order. It was painful enough, so I can only imagine how painfully it would be to be cut off completely. I know that team promised nothing but still…

Just my two (Euro) cents Smile

Do contact Neal about changing shipping address? I checked the shipping then to change my billing address and when I ordered my shipping address is wrong. I could prob still get the light at the address it’s being sent but I’ll just pay the fine to correct it. Can someone please let me know who to contact thanks! So glad to finally order too bad I did it at midnight on my cell phone and messed it up haha

It’s been a month since my BLF was dispatched and there are no updates. I might be okay with that but the tracking shows that it has been dispatched to another country (Indonesia) instead of my current country (India).

I’ve shot a mail to Neal but haven’t got a reply in a week.


Make sure you fill out the survey to Neal on post #1. Hopefully it is going to the correct address. If not, he needs to check into it.

I still haven’t got any reply on that. I know all the people involved are busy but I really hope they can find some time in the near future to reply to our queries.

edit: came across TA’s reply asking us to PM him so I’ve shot him a PM.

Not that I have the answer to your problem, however, given that this is coming from another country, is it possible that it's getting delayed in Customs?  Realistically, if this would be X-rayed, I could see this getting pulled out of the shipment to make sure that its not a harmful thing.  Additionally, some countries have tariffs on things and if this has to be pulled out of shipping to send a tariff notice this could be the cause.  I have had this happen to me with other things that I have imported into the country and I received a notice to come to the local Customs office and personally sign for the item.  Bureaucratic red tape at its best.  Good luck though.
