March Shipping Updates!

Posted by Made In College (Creator)


Gold and Black Lightning Complete!

Our factory finished the first batch of lightning cables a few weeks ago (black and gold colors). These have made their way to our fulfillment facility and they have processed and shipped them! Yay! For the orders they were able to fulfill, you should receive a tracking number via email. You can track the status of this order at 

This should put us at about 40% shipped!!

Additional Color Manufacturing

We started with black and gold because they were the most ordered colors. The remaining colors are now in manufacturing. The factory has promised by March 14th to have the rest of the colors complete. We're a little skeptical based on their track record, but we'll remain optimistic and continue communicating with them day by day to keep them on track. If they finish them on March 14 as promised, they'll deliver them to our fulfillment center on that Monday, the 17th. Then they will be processed and will ship them that week. Shipping will take between 10-20 days to be delivered. You will each get an email with tracking for those orders via your kickstarter registered email address!

We're probably more anxious to get these cables out than you guys are to receive them! It's been a long time coming and it seems like we're constantly chasing supply chain management issues and excuses from manufacturers. We really appreciate your patience and understanding in the delays! We're still getting emails every day from thoughtful backers cheering us on. What an amazing community! <3! 

Backup plan!

As we mentioned in our previous update, we have enlisted the help of a second factory to produce additional lightning cables for us. We did this as a backup for the first factory's delays and to make sure we're producing these as quickly as possible and not getting strung along. Those cables will be complete on March 31st, and will then be ready for shipping at our fulfillment center. That is our backup plan for the tardiness of the first factory. 


So, to recap! First factory has promised to have everything complete by March 14th. We will receive and ship those the following week. You'll get an email tracking number, check that tracking number at !

With Love!

      It's April 11, and I've tried emailing, but have still heard nothing. I realize that there have been production problems, but would like to hear something definite about my order, not just a general comment about when you expect to ship items. If they aren't coming this week, then I'd like my money back.

    5. Arthur Crook on

      This is now April 10, and I have not received any email telling me that they have shipped. Please inform me as to the status of my order. Thank you.

      I received my cables yesterday and i like them ;) but i notice that 3 of them with out magnetic keeper ?

    9. Damian on

      I am disappointed that only one of my cables has the magnetic keeper and the other cable has a bit of plastic cable twist. I would of liked a choice over which cable got the keeper as the 'keeperless' cable is going to travel a lot more than the other cable.

    10. Peter Charrington on

      Although I'm not quite used to not having to worry which way to plug the USB in My cables work fine for charging My Iphone 5S when connected to both a Windows computer and to the mains outlet using the plug provided with my Phone with no problems at all syncing to Itunes.

    11. Gordon on

      Same here, slightly disappointed that one of my cables had the keeper and the other a bit of plastic cable twist rather than what was promised, especially after waiting so long for them.

      I also never got an email saying cables were on there way, just arrived out of the blue this afternoon.

    12. John Luker

      Like Sally, I too was expecting a keeper for each BelayCord. Alas, only one was included.

      I think I figured out why we both thought that:

      "You all requested it! To add a free Magnetic Keeper to your BelayCord purchase, just share our project on twitter or facebook from the buttons below our video! Then comment to let us know how you shared! [BOLD]Every BelayCord you buy will include it's own Magnetic Keeper.[/BOLD] Patent pending.

      I hate when people rant BS. I just emailed couple of hours to Belay Cord and they responded quick!!
      Yup! If you read the faq it says they are mfi certified

      Hi Got my cords yesterday and I love, love, love them :) I wanted to ask why I only received 1 magnet cable holder? I thought I was getting 2. I would have preferred the holder on my silver cord. Please let me know if I am mistaken, and if so, can I order one? Thanks so much.

      So I finally received notification that my cords had shipped with a tracking number a week ago. The tracking number gave no information until today when it was finally updated to say it was posted *today*. Wondering what it has been doing for the last week? No chance of it reaching me before Easter then.

      @Zdenek, Do standard Apple cables work when you connect them through the Thunderbolt display? Do the Belay cables work when you connect them to a wall charger?

    17. Zdenek Hornych on

      Folks do your cables work when you connect them thru Apple Thunderbolt display? Mine not (I have too and I both don't work). I'd like to know if all have the same failure...

      My shipping notice was in my junk mail so if you have not received your, check there. Hope to see them in my mail when I get back in town next week.

    19. Bob Jouy on

      Rémi :
      Je suis en France et j'ai reçu le mail disant que ça a été envoyé aujourd'hui. T'inquiète ça arrive.

    20. Mark Smith II on

      Finally received my cords! yay. Very nice quality. The fit and finish is very impressive. It took a little longer than I would have liked but at the end of the day I'm glad I backed the project. Also I did not get any email or tracking number like the update said but found the cords in the mail today so for hose of you still waiting maybe you will get lucky and find your Belay cords in the mail in the next few days as well.

    21. Johnny Salami on

      This campaign is a total joke. Belay is proving to be dishonorable and they are in violation of their own terms and conditions of campaign owners. I live in the USA, ordered my lightning cables six months ago, and I still have no idea of when to expect them. The updates are hollow and inaccurate and they never reply to emails. Rip-Off!

      Waiting...... Waiting .......waiting about 5 month. How long that we have to wait

    23. Alan Barrington-Hughes on

      Five months and no shipping notification from DelayCords. I do hope this finishes soon. Very tired of waiting...

    24. Nawee Sribhadung on

      My order is for 1 black and 1 gold but i have not received the email with the tracking number

      No any Shipping notification (((

      I don't receive E-mail.

    30. Shiki Matsuri on

      I'm going to assume that I chose gold when I set the color of my cable. I was wondering how long it takes for the email for shipping to be sent? I still haven't gotten mine yet.

      Yay! Shipping notification popped up in the afternoon. I almost forgot about this project but I'm excited now. I really hope the shipment will not disappear halfway.

      @peter cartwright You should try to help people instead of assuming like you always do.

      @Sharon Kasey I am sorry you are having trouble with your "Mamba cable" Unfortunately you have been contacting the wrong kickstarter. Please contact Awesome Cable aka "A/C"

      This info is based off of your previous posts.

      "I have written twice before and received no answer. I received my cord in January. The second time I used it on my iPhone, when unplugging it from phone the lightening pins stay in phone with only the black housing (printed with A/C on it) coming out! Very disappointed! More disappointed that I have received no response! Can this be fixed or exchanged! Expected more from Kickstarter participants. Ordered 2 meter kickstarted green....."

      @Sharon, when you say you emailed Belay, what address did you use? Have you tried sending a PM using the blue Contact Me link at the top right of this page?

      Another suggestion. I think you're better off posting any Kickstarter comment in the main Comment page rather than as a comment on this Update page. I hope you get your problem resolved. So much for the lifetime guarantee!

    35. Ollie 'Reach' Denning on

      Still being only 40% shipped is pretty fucking abysmal

    36. Thomas Ott on

      nothing here in germany either

    37. Sharon Kasey on

      Got my cord in January. It broke 2nd time I used it! Plugged it into my phone and when pulling cord from phone the pins stayed in phone and the rest came off!! This is my 4th message (emailed belay & kickstarter) and have received NO reply from ANYONE. Very disappointed in Kickstarter and Belay. Don't know what else I can do. Any suggestions??

      Are they MFI? I'm going to assume not as you would have mentioned it.

      Jim L on

      Great news! I ordered two black (1 standard and 1 long) but haven't received a shipping email yet. I checked my spam folder. The update said they shipped or are shipping? When can we expect this shipping email? Thanks for all the hard work!

    41. Tanner Matthews on

      Anjay, they sent me a msg and said that MFI is good to go

    42. ポール ウェッブ on

      I've also experienced excuses and incompetence from an overseas manufacturer recently as well, so I understand. I forget what color I chose, but am looking forward to getting it.

    43. Bob Jouy on

      Awesome guys ! Can't wait to plug those in !
      Cheers from France.
