Some quick answers to some of you who are wondering about the specs.
We will use a vapour etched injection moulded part and this will diffuse the hot spots on the LED’s.
- The LED´s:
The LED´s are 2 x 5mm super bright white LED, 20mAh, 2.8-3.8V, 23000-25000MCD Size: 5mm (dia.) * 8.6mm (height). 23-25 Candela, 1 candela (1 lm/sr) light source will produce 1 lumen per square meter at the distance of 1 meter.
To begin with the lights will only have a flash mode.
- The Batteries:
The batteries lifetime is at least 10 hours of constant use. The longest test done yet was a full weekend left at the office turned on. They were still blinking on monday. 2 x CR 2032, changeable batteries, will turn them on.
USB charged lights will make the the end price to high - to begin with. We are working on this.
- The lights will not damage the paint on the frame.
- Production is running smoothly with the first batch of 10.000 lights.
We'll be back soon - also with an update on the timeline.
All the best
Cph Parts team
First and foremost, we apologize for the weak communication as of late, but rest assured, we are working hard on finishing production so that we can start to focus on order fulfillment. Please believe us when we say that this was definitely not intended! We all want this product out and running on the streets asap.
We've had some major set backs in the production and actually had to change factories to make sure that we are producing a perfect product for everyone -- our first manufacturing partner was not up to Copenhagen Parts standards.
Just today we recieved the pilot run and are testing this for the next couple of days. This was actually the first promising step we've had in a few months which is why communication has been scarce.
To date, our main issues has been the strength of the magnets which, thankfully, has now been solved. The light turns on as soon as you attatched the frame and smoothly switches off when removed. Within a week or two we'll be able to push the start button on production.
Considering this new timeline, we are approximately 50 days away from shipping the lights to you.
We've attatched pictures and video of the lights from the pilot run and we hope this reassures everyone that progress is being, and has been, made as of late.
Finally, and again, thanks for your enormous amount of patience. We WILL be shipping your lights soon. Considering the delay and knowing that people move, please send any new contact info to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks and sincere apologies,
Cph Parts team
We are so gratefull for your patience...
Our factory are working like crazy to push all the Bike Lights ordered out as quick as possible.
We just recieved this picture of the metal casing - they look amazing!!!
We don't want to produce anything that's not as close as possible to perfection - there for the long production time.
Hang on - we are getting there.
(If you have any changes to shipping address please feel free to send an email via the Kickstarter inbox. We are recieving all your emails and will change your details according to your emails. Thanks)
