To all of you who has allready recieved your lights here's is a few important notes:

The batteries that comes with the lights are only test/demo batteries.

      I haven't received anything and I no longer want to. Refund please.

    2. Creator Lori Ludwig on July 9, 2014

      Has anyone heard any update on this?

    3. Creator Steven N. on April 17, 2014

      Like many others, I'm still waiting for my lights. Here's hoping that you actually read these comments and respond like a proper business.

    4. Creator Young Song on April 16, 2014

      Where is mine? (California USA) You guys need to notify tracking information if you had shipped. We don't want to waste time to argue its loss of delivery... you can put all status into GoogleDoc and share the link to view only to us, if you don't have time to send individual email with tracking information. That's fine with backers.

    5. Creator Ashanti on April 15, 2014

      From the comments below, I'm guessing only backers in Europe got their lights. Can you give an update to those of us on the other side of the "pond"?

    6. Creator Davy Allen Rudolph on April 9, 2014

      I haven't received my lights either. I have moved since this project started and I sent you my updated address. I'm worried that you guys didn't receive it.

    7. Creator Kurt Lozier on April 8, 2014

      How about an update, I have an email from you saying some have received their lights -- I however have not here in NY. Kindly let us know what is going on.

    8. Creator Richard Wezensky on April 7, 2014

      Can you give us an update. I still haven't received my lights yet.

    9. Creator Margy Waller on April 3, 2014

      No lights in Ohio. No communication about change of address. No response to several inquiries.

    10. Creator Mat Stevens on April 2, 2014

      No lights. No communication from them about change of address requests. Nothing.

    11. Creator Kenneth Marx on April 2, 2014

      I have not received my lights.

    12. Creator Avena on April 2, 2014

      Never got the lights here in California. I wouldn't be able to use them anyway.

    13. Creator Mark Chappell on March 31, 2014

      From the look of it their facebook page isn't being listened to either. Perhaps a time to post on there and see if they reply? https://www.facebook.com/CopenhagenParts

    14. Creator Quyen Le on March 31, 2014

      I have not received my lights. When should I expect to get them?

    15. Creator Thomas Fallaw on March 31, 2014

      No new lights received here in South Carolina.

    16. Creator Helen on March 29, 2014

      I absolutely get the problems you've had. I'm disappointed in the changes to none rechargeable batteries and no constant light meaning they're not legal to use. I was still supportive. But WTF is going on with sending out front lights with the same angled rake as the back lights? Do you even own a bike? You really have a front uprise at that angle? I don't. My handlebar and support shaft are vertical, meaning the light is useless. arse.

    17. Creator Benoît Grogan-Avignon on March 29, 2014

      Wow. After all that, we even have to buy our own batteries to get it to work. I get kickstarter. I get it's not a preorder. But wow. I feel for you guys, it must have been difficult and disappointing. I hope your future projects are more successful.

    18. Creator jan angevine on March 29, 2014

      Hello. I left a message requesting information about delivery. I have not received my bike light. I provided my mailing information of October 23, 2013. I would appreciate it if someone could respond to let me know if the light was mailed or whether it is yet to be sent. Thank you.

    19. Creator William kochi on March 29, 2014

      chalk this one as one of the worse projects on kickstarter that i have pledged for. at this point, i really don't care if i receive it or not.

    20. Creator Steve King on March 28, 2014

      Once again folks I would suggest to all "investors" that Kickstarter is not a store, but rather a forum to invest in what one may deem to be a worthwhile idea. This project is a complete and utter disaster: poor design, misrepresentation of final product, etc. We will be receiving something (or so we've been told) although it may as well have be a box of loose parts given the item's lack of utility.
      This project is just one of many bad investments via KS that prompted the insertion of the Risk and Challenges section on current new project pages/descriptions. It doesn't make the $$ loss any easier but it may be wise to use this experience as a learning exercise that we can now employ when evaluating other project opportunities...

    21. Creator kt gray on March 27, 2014

      i have not received mine, either; in Va, US of A.

    22. Creator jan angevine on March 27, 2014

      Hello, Is everyone supposed to have received their light? I have not received one.

    23. Creator Mark Chappell on March 27, 2014

      Man alive this is another insult. $55 + $15 = $70 in total for a blinking led light and you don't even get a fresh set of batteries. It's bad enough having to wait since December 2012..... but this is a joke and THEN you post a video to show us just how useless the demo batteries are!!! Keep kicking us whilst we are down why don't you.

      These are also useless to attach to your bike during daylight hours as you cant turn the light off AND you cant see the LED's so all you achieve is running the batteries down.

    24. Creator Toni Laukka on March 27, 2014

      Didn't wan't blinking lights. Wanted a refund. Got blinking lights and didn't get refund. Now after a long wait I'm more than disappointed. This just sucks. Copenhagen Parts look in the mirror and ask yourself: How did this project go?

    25. Creator Rick Osman on March 27, 2014

      This is taking the mickey. Waiting for years, expensive postage, poor quality lights, only blinking mode and now not even proper batteries... well Jacob and co you've certainly turned us all over on this one.

    26. Creator Giles Richard Falcon on March 27, 2014

      That's awkward. Test batteries?
      OK, we'll follow through with this one.
      I used the lights and they are satisfactory for what they do, but I must frankly say that even though Kickstarter is not a shopping outlet - so we are chipping in on projects, not buying products - your performance has been euphemistically poor.
      Two years with patchy communication and an idea that has in the meantime "aged".
      No personal hard feelings but you will have to pull a quick winner to convince the crowd to fund another.
      Shipment costs - in Europe to Europe...a total rip off, by the way.

    27. Creator Gernot J. Abel on March 27, 2014

      @R. Nunn jacob@copenhagenparts.com is Jacobs mail. He confirmed that I should have received the lights by tuesday this week but that is not the case.
      No danish dynamite!

    28. Creator Daniel Dean on March 27, 2014

      +1 for shipping confirmation as well - tho reluctant to bother if what I'm reading is 100% accurate!

    29. Creator Matheus Siqueira on March 27, 2014

      Very disappointed with the quality of the lights. My front light doesn't start blinking when I put them on the same frame and the same spot as my rear light!!!! Apparently the button that turns on the light of the front is harder than the rear light and as a result I have a very expensive piece of trash. Would like to get a properly working light, after 2 years that was the least I expected.

    30. Creator Steve King on March 27, 2014

      In re your demonstration on how to disassemble the lights, I have a much simpler method: one that employs a paper bag and a hammer...

    31. Creator Kalle Leskinen on March 27, 2014

      Didn't want blinking lights, wanted a refund. Got no refund, got blinking lights. Funny how the package reminds that it's the users responsibility to ensure that the lights are only used as allowed by law. As it happens, blinking lights are illegal in most civilized countries. Already threw my lights to recycling.

      Nice job Copenhagen Parts - not.

    32. Creator R. Nunn on March 27, 2014

      What is their email address to which they actually reply to?!
      Still no item received. Also, do NOT want the blinking version.

    33. Creator Stewart Birch on March 27, 2014

      Blimey, that takes the biscuit doesn't it?

    34. Creator Brian Friend on March 27, 2014

      +1 shipping confirmation please

    35. Creator Gautam Kaul on March 27, 2014

      Y don't u just trash ur product and ur project... It's ridiculous !!!

    36. Creator Tobias Willhauck on March 27, 2014

      I just received the lights and like them.
      What I don't like is the service you provide and hidden costs you create.

      The mail I sent stating that I don't want the blinking version was ignored.
      Then 20 Euro for shipping a tiny parcel inside of Europe?
      Now another 5 Euros to replace the 'Demo' Batteries?

      I'll file this under starting problems, but you'll need to work on the communication around your customer service.

    37. Creator Aaron Schwartz on March 27, 2014

      I've also messaged with an updated address. Can you confirm? I have to say its pretty shady that you send them without fully charged batteries. These are not cheap for bike lights.

    38. Creator Abe Stanway on March 27, 2014

      +1 for confirming shipping addresses.

    39. Creator Robert Herring on March 27, 2014

      I too am glad to see they're finally being shipped and I also have moved since this campaign started and need conformation that my shipping address is the most current.

    40. Creator Ali on March 27, 2014

      I've messaged you a few times with an update to my shipping address but have not received a response, can you please confirm?

    41. Creator Blake J. Bowyer on March 27, 2014

      Glad people are receiving their lights - that's great.

      Can you confirm update shipping addresses? I've moved lofts over the duration of this project and need to confirm mine was updated as sent.
