      Still have my Lil Kikr in the original box. Anyone interested in buying it off me?

      I need to replace the charger cable in my Lil Kikr as the cabling got damaged.
      I am having some concerns aboutextracting the 30-pin connector from the base (red aluminum).
      Given that the old cable is going to be trashed, getting the old one out is not a worry - if it breaks, it's dead anyway, but I am concerned that getting a new connector in may be a problem as it appears to be an incredibly tight fit.

      Any suggestions?

      I use my Lil Kikr every day. Works great and looks great. I'd like to buy another one. Is the Lil Kikr available for sale somewhere? Any chance of an update for the lightning connector?

      Just wanted to update you -- been using the Lil Kikr ceramic for about 4 months now. The build quality is solid and it still gets attention at work, sitting on my desk.

      Sorry to see all the unexpected shipping issues--that just sucks. But let's not forget the whole purpose of Kickstarter--it's a great means to get innovative products started.

      Good luck to you on the next project.

      Hi Mike,
      My iPhone 3GS worked perfectly fine on the lil likr until a recent upgrade a little while back to iOS 6.0 and then today to iOS 6.1. When the phone is docked (and connected to my computer) it says "Charging is not supported with this accessory". Any thoughts?

      Would anyone like to buy my LIL KIKR? With an iPhone 5 and no sign of compatibility on the horizon, it serves me no purpose. Mine is still in the package, unopened.

      Message me with an offer.

      I'm still waiting.

      Sent an email to both mikes and addresses on december 12. And a message via Kickstarter on january 10. Still no reply.

      I got a Paypal transfer that might been for the chargers, but declined it because I couldn't verify what is was for (never got a reply from the sender).

      Did the european orders ship with a tracking number?

      Did anyone else never receive their Lil Kikr? I've contacted Mike through kickstarter and through his website listed but not heard anything. How many of us haven't receive it?

    12. Benni Klomfass on January 1, 2013

      got it yesterday, finally. at least i wasn't charged more as some people here reported that they had to pay.

      looks cool and feels sturdy - i like it and will use it - maybe more that the Elevation Dock as my phone fits with my case/bumper in the LIL Kikr and not in the Elevation Dock.

      Great quality , but for future products/ideas please make sure to rethink about delivery date carefully as almost no one here has ever shipped anyhing within one month to someone (from the design category)

    13. Benni Klomfass on December 19, 2012

      another week has passed - not quite an answer -so - when will i receive it ?

    14. Benni Klomfass on December 12, 2012

      haven't received any message / mail or whatsoever within the last month - please let me know when will i receive mine !?

    15. Marcelo Nuñez on December 7, 2012

      I just got mine, after weeks of waiting, and when I received I get charged 20 dollars!!! for fees of DHL, I dont know why he used that company I end up paying more for shipping.

      I think mike got screwed around by his shipper, mine had the wrong phone number printed on it so it was almost abandoned by purolator (ups does not deliver here, they contract it to another shipping company) because they could not contact me for pick-up. I also never received a tracking number that they supposedly sent out.

    17. Benni Klomfass on November 29, 2012

      i've sent a message over 2 weeks ago but got no answer- would like to know when will i receive the lil kikr . .

      also - i hope there won't be any customs to pay as the price is already premium (rewards should be sent out as gifts imho ... )

    18. Iaan Kim on November 26, 2012

      Hi, Mike....
      I'd like to know when you sent the charger to South Korea.
      I haven't received mine yet.
      Keep me posted. Thanks.

      I finally recived my lil kikr, last Friday, and I love it, can't believe ups charged 36 in brokerage fees.

    20. Asterion on November 13, 2012

      Hi Mike,

      Thanks for the info. I managed to remove the 30 pin connector, and now use my lovely LK as a (power free) speaker stand in my kitchen. Sorry to hear you've had a tough time with this development. I for one really like the LK concept—with or without the 30 pin connector! Unfortunately, the tone of some of the comments here seem to suggest people are missing the point of Kickstarter somewhat. It's not an online store—it's for people who want to contribute to bringing creative and cool ideas to the world. It's a "learning experience" for everyone!
      I hope any negativity has not put you off crowdsourcing in general (and Kickstarter in particular), and if you ever think of doing an iPhone5 / Lightning connector version of LK, count me in.

      Best of luck with any future ventures,

      A :)

    21. Marcelo Nuñez on November 12, 2012

      if you haven't receive it, its not my fault, I just sent a 3rd email confirming my address which is the same as the one in the survey!

      I'm glad to hear you finally received your KIKR!

    23. Nikolay Chebotarev on November 12, 2012

      I got my LIL KIKR, I am very happy that finally got it and I can use it. Well executed and proper weight. The only bit of the 30-pin usb cable is not exactly loaded, but it can be solved.
      It made sense to wait so long :)
      Thank you!

      Hi Marcelo,

      I don't think I ever received your address.

      Hi Mike. I know this has to suck for you having all of these problems with your project and the unhappy backers commenting here. I honestly hate to join the bandwagon, but I feel that I have to say something. I was a $140 backer and ordered 3 of the devices with chargers. I got the $2 refund for 2 of them, not 3. Whatever, we have chargers. One of the lil kikrs came with the plastic backing piece broken off, leaving spiky shards that I couldn't remove. And like many others, we all ordered the iphone 5 during the time delay of your project, making them instantly useless to us. It's really a bummer. My 16 year old son was the one who brought your project to my attention. He loved its simplicity and beauty. We're all kind of bummed and were hoping you'd have an adapter for the 5. That all being said, I honestly wish you the best. I know it has to be NOT fun to have so many people not happy with something you put so much into.

      @mike kemery

      Thank You ! Have a Great Day and I hope than you will get more succes in futur project

      Sorry for my attitude.
      I can be unsatisfied but I certainly can't be mean toward you and your team.

    31. mike kemery Creator on November 3, 2012

      Hi Howard,

      In an earlier update we explained how the factory had failed to find us an acceptable charger. So rather than send you a bad one we have gifted you funds for you to put towards a new one. This would have been sent via PayPal. Please look in your inbox.

      Kind Regards,

      - mike

    32. Howard Thaw on November 3, 2012

      I received my unit today, minus the electrical adapter which was supposed to be included.
      Kindly advise how to get this matter rectified.


    33. James Nakatsu on November 2, 2012

      USB plug starting to show signs of fail...
      Is there a way to swap out a cable? Is it glued/fused in?

    34. mike kemery Creator on October 31, 2012


      We really hate to hear that type of attitude. I know you're upset but that type of bad mouthing is uncalled for.
      My obligation to you is to ensure you receive what you have ordered. You're complete order has shipped today (including a replacement for your blemished paint)

      3) Dont want them, rembourse me!!!
      4) I will never charge my phone with an uncertified wallcharger

      LIL KIRK it's a LIL SCAM
      LIL KIRK definitely not worth 50$
      misleading labeling is a Crime

      3)the Shipping/remboursement of the "bundle of 3 Kirk" - It will be shipped out in the next couple days.
