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.
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.
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.
Inside each of the NanoLeaf bulb box, you will discover 2 NanoLeaf stickers. Feel free to represent your NanoLeaf pride!
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.
An example of the type of picture we are looking for:
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!
