NanoLeaf bulbs are shipping out!

Hi Backers,

After several months of hard work, we're proud to announce that we have shipped out our very first KickStarter reward! We will be shipping out orders non-stop for the next few days to get our first set of NanoLeaf bulbs on their way to their new owners.

Shipping

The NanoLeaf bulbs will be travelling via Swiss Post. To make tracking your reward easier, we are setting up a system that will email you an automated email with the tracking number of your NanoLeaf package upon shipment. 

Once the orders are shipped out, if there are any issues with the delivery, we would recommend you first try contacting Swiss Post directly. If it is something beyond their control, simply send us a message via KickStarter and we would be happy to help.

Packaging

The NanoLeaf bulbs will be delivered to you in our eco-friendly packaging. To facilitate easy recognition of what's in the box, 3 colors are used on the packaging to denote the 3 different models of bulbs (from least brightest to brightest, the colors are blue, green, and yellow). A window is cut in the box so that you can see the actual light bulb. To distinguish the voltage version of the bulb, the appropriate voltage will be checked on the printed checkbox on the packaging.

When your NanoLeaf bulb arrives, please double check that you have received the correct voltage and design as per your order. Although plugging a 220V version into a 120V socket will not hurt the bulb, the brightness will not reach the optimum level. On the other hand, plugging a 120V version into 220V socket will quickly end the life of the bulb (we have tried this). Do not hesitate to contact us if you run into any problems with your order.

Free Swag!

Inside each of the NanoLeaf bulb box, you will discover 2 NanoLeaf stickers. Feel free to represent your NanoLeaf pride!

Photo Contest

We haven't forgotten about the contest that we announced in an earlier update. We are printing a reminder about it onto the NanoLeaf packaging box. Contest winners will receive prizes in the form of free NanoLeaf bulbs and other goodies! 

To enter the contest, all you need to do is take a photo of your NanoLeaf light bulb in its new home. There are two ways to enter the contest:

1) You can follow us on Twitter, then tweet up to 5 unique and original photos using #mynanoleaf, and tag us @theNanoLeaf.

2) You can 'Like us' on Facebook, then upload it onto your Facebook page and tag us in the photo .

We also accept drawings / paintings / artworks that depict the NanoLeaf bulb in some interesting/creative way.

The contest details will be posted on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/theNanoLeaf, and our website: http://thenanoleaf.com. We will send out a Kickstarter update notifying you once we do. 

An example of the type of picture we are looking for: 

Warning Label

We have put a lot of work into ensuring that the NanoLeaf light bulb is safe to use. However, we strongly urge everyone to read the warning before operating the NanoLeaf bulb. We have printed all the relevant warnings onto the box itself in an amusing and entertaining way. PLEASE READ IT before connecting your new light bulb. Thanks in advance for taking safety very seriously.

July Batch of NanoLeaf Rewards

We have started the production of our next batch of bulbs! We'll be sending out the surveys for the July batch in the next few weeks. Please make sure to return your survey as soon as possible upon receiving it.

Thank you all for your patience and support, we couldn't have done it without you. And we've included some photos for your enjoyment. :)

Until next time, live green Kickstarters!

      I got my bulb a couple weeks ago, and shipping information after I already received it. Very happy with the quality of the bulb! Works great and is VERY bright despite being the lower W model. One thing I'm not entirely crazy about is the colour temperature, would have preferred it to be a little more warm like a traditional light bulb. :)

    2. Creator Mike Bounds on August 22, 2013

      Same as many other posters - looking for updates on July delivery as I have not received bulb or tracking info. Looks line I am not going to get mine for a while if people in May batch haven't got there's so I don't understand why I got an email on 27th June saying estimated delivery was still July when there are still May batch deliveries outstanding. I don't mind bulb being late - just want an update of the status of deliveries.

    3. Creator greezer on August 21, 2013

      your last login was today, so don't mess with us please!

    4. Creator Robert hirsch on August 19, 2013

      May delivery???? It's August an I still don't have one

    5. Creator Arnold A Burgemeister on August 17, 2013

      My estimated May delivery bulbs have arrived. Look and function beautifully. Came registered mail through the post office. Thanks, Nanoleaf!

    6. Creator Duncan Joseph on August 16, 2013

      Hey haven't seen anything delivered and thought it would have been in July. Please let me know what is going on. Thanks

    7. Creator Kelvin Leong on August 15, 2013

      I'm in the July batch, but not a word nor anything delivered yet.

      Can you guys at least send out a message rather than keep us in the "dark"?

    8. Creator Rand Chua TL on August 12, 2013

      Just got the bulb today!

    9. Creator John Madigan on August 11, 2013

      No info here either....

    10. Creator Dirk Faust on August 10, 2013

      Received mine now. But without any tracking# or info before.
      Despite the silence here and from their shipping dpt - the bulb is great!

    11. Creator Jonathan Russell on August 10, 2013

      Rather ironical that a company selling light bulbs would leave its backers in the dark. Come on guys this is not the only post asking for updates - please give us all some info on whats happening.

    12. Creator Matthew L on August 7, 2013

      More than a month since the last comment or update... not a good sign. Glad I only ordered one.

    13. Creator Joey Salyer on August 6, 2013

      Should I be worried if I have not received my light yet?

    14. Creator Stuart on August 6, 2013

      Didn't get a tracking number but I did get my nanolight today. Quite suprising!

    15. Creator David Borg on August 6, 2013

    32. Creator lars lassen skrydstrup on July 1, 2013

      Dear KickStarter and nanoLeaf team. Two days ago I received an email with a response link for my address etc. But this link leads to a 404 error.
      Is it a temporary thing, or is a dead link?
      Thougth I should let you kniw.
      Kind regards, Lars

    33. Creator Gimmy Chu, Tom Rodinger, Christian Yan on June 30, 2013

      Hey Guys, we apologize for the confusion but we have not yet started sending out tracking numbers. We'll post a comment once we do.

    34. Creator N.H. on June 29, 2013

      I'm in the May batch as well and have not received an email to state that it has shipped with a tracking number. Can you clarify if they have all shipped yet? Thanks.

    39. Creator Kraftwurm on June 23, 2013

      Swiss Post?? Are these Updates individualized or what? Very confusing.

      Jimmy (from Switzerland)

    40. Creator Gimmy Chu, Tom Rodinger, Christian Yan on June 23, 2013

      Hi Backers, we had a few different Estimated Delivery dates being offered for different batches of NanoLeaf lights. The first batch was scheduled for May and that is what has just started being shipped out. Our next few batches are scheduled for July, Sept, October. If you look at the details of your pledge, you should be able to see which batch you are part of.

      As we get closer to the shipping date of your batch, we will send out a survey via KickStarter to confirm your order and gather your shipping address information.

      Aleksander Bergan, Chris Westermann, Murvan Lai - I checked your names and you all pledged for the September batch of bulbs. We are ahead of schedule for the September batch so we hope to have it sent out before then. We will send you an email collecting your details soon.

      Thanks!

    41. Creator Aleksander Bergan on June 23, 2013

      What is this survey you speak of?

    42. Creator Chris Westermann (deleted) on June 23, 2013

      I also need to change shipping address. I remember something about a survey. I have not seen this yet.

    43. Creator Murvin Lai on June 23, 2013

      ?? I don't think I have received any survey from you. Please check what mailing address you are going to send to me. Thank you

    44. Creator Berta Devant Pintado on June 23, 2013

      Hi, I need to change my shipping adress, how do I do this?

    45. Creator Carlos Zepeda on June 23, 2013

      Thanks for the update. Can't wait for my bulbs to arrive.
