      Yeah, whats the status of the Lightning model? We have all waited a while so good or bad just post regular updates. We all know there are delays but when you post nothing for long periods of time its insulting to those who have stuck with your effort.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year guys. Now that it has been about two months since the last update, may be it is time for another one. Still looking forward to lightning and no longer own anything that requires a 30 pin connector. Last time I wrote was August to ask for more communication, I know there have been several holidays, but they are over and I'm hoping someone is now able to work on this project.

      So today I noticed my phone was not charging anymore. The cord lite still lights up, but will not charge my iPhone 4 or 4s.

      Is this a known issue ? Would you like it back to see what's happened ?

      Is there anyway to tell if I have purchased the lightning cable or original iPod cable? It's been so long and I have not received a cable yet. I was an original backer with 2 cables so I was hoping to get 2 lightning cables. Any way to check this or update to ensure lightning cables are sent?

      Hi Debbie, Thanks for the comment and the feedback. I just sent you a message.

      I have been using my 2 Cordlites for about 5 months now. I like them. They do exactly what I hoped in allowing me to plug in my iPad and iPhone in the dark. I like the extended cord length, too. I would prefer a marking to indicate top, but am able to find the top by the 2 tiny points/holes on top that show up when lit. I have a problem with them coming slightly unplugged very easily, so that sometimes I find it stopped charging after a slight bump. My real problem now, however is that both Cordlites have stopped charging. I don't know why. The cords still light up, so I know they are receiving power. Would love replacements or fix if possible. Thanks.

      Creator Scrap Pile Labs on September 10, 2013

      Hey Alex, sorry about the trouble with your CordLite. I can assure you that the CordLite is not drawing power from the device, but it does sound like you may have a faulty one. I just sent you a message.

    24. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Alex Camacho on September 10, 2013

      Thought the cable was great but it didn't survive long, doesn't charge anything and actually seems to draw power from the ipad or the phone connected to it, the extended plug part where the light is, is very flimsy I think something snap at that point an now it doesn't work.

      Don;t know if it's possible but I would make it so the bulk of the plug is flush with the device when plugged in like a normal plug.

      It's been 2 months since I asked the question about the lightning cord light and I have not received the courtesy of an answer. You suggest that I be "respectful and considerate." I ask no more of you than you do the same.

      Sorry, but I haven't really been keeping up with what's going on because I opted to wait for the lightning connection. Could I just have some sense of what's going on in that area?

      Class act, Scrap Pile. Thank you for replacing my faulty cord. I really like the product.

      Creator MR.THEERAPON PHUETTHANYAKIJ on May 8, 2013

      Sorry but i haven't receive the product yet, worst i don't know where's my reward because you won't provide the tracking number which is considered really really needed.

      I'd rather pay a liitle price more for the tracking number! Every project i've funded in Kickstarter with the need to delivery of rewards always provide tracking number, so that I as the backer (and also the owner of project) could rely on. Don't just offer less bucks (for less price) and risk for the delivery (which can be lost easily and to make sure it's on its way)

      The project is already late enough for me to waiting (8 months!) and now i owned iPhone 5, which i have to give the reward to someone else anyway.

      I must say, this is the worst thing in Kickstarter i've ever met. Moreover, i've seen some comments from other backers relating the product quality issues (poor QA)... I'm really disapointed :(

      Sorry that i have to be straight, i've just hoping for more than this.

      I actually got my chord and it works. Been using it for a couple of days now. I guess I'll shut up and eat some crow. As far as the rest of you that had issues with yours, well, you got yours way before mine, so suck it.

    37. Profile.small

      Creator Scrap Pile Labs on May 7, 2013

      Thank you all for the feedback. We have seen that a few people have experienced quality issues and we are addressing those individually.
      Gus- In reference to the 2 amp concern, I just wanted to clarify that the light portion of the device is in parallel and basically independent of the charge and data function. That means that the cable will deliver the power (current) of the transformer. You may have one with an issue, so we will message you with the details to get a replacement. Thank you all for your comments.

      Creator Gus Smedstad on May 5, 2013

      I'm pretty unhappy with my two cords. My wife was using a Cordlite with her iPad, and it ran out of power and shut down. The cord is clearly not delivering the full 2 amps.

      The build quality is terrible. One of my cords has a crooked 30 pin connector, and when I tried to unplug it from the charger, the shroud on the USB A connector came off. This was _not_ the cord my wife was using. I suppose this shouldn't be surprising, given some of the weird manufacturing issues mentioned in the updates.

    39. Missing_small

      Creator Brad Ladner on May 1, 2013

      I did not get my chord lite today. It didn't have scratches, or not have scratches. It wasn't an ugly or pretty color, or a color of any kind. There was no box to open, or package to unwrap. My only problem was plugging it into my phone, which involved holding the phone and one hand, and nothing but combinations of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide in the other.

    40. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Robin Howorth on May 1, 2013

      Cordlite arrived today at my office in the UK and I have to say really disappointed with the finish of the item. The sliver moulding round the 30 pin end is all scratched (I can provide photos if needs be)

      The wait for the product has no real relevance to be honest I've funded a few projects and I take the gamble as to the likelihood of a timeline/delivery date. What I'm not so used to is the low rent quality of the build if this device. In all honesty I think the packaging is the best thing about this product. Not impressed.

    41. 001.small

      Creator Shane Zehnder on April 30, 2013

      Cord"lite" only works for about 2 weeks. I've had mine about 2 weeks now and it no longer lights up. Feel like I've been "had." After such a long wait to end up with a sub par product is a HUGE disappointment.

      Thanks for all the feedback everyone! It's been overwhelmingly positive. We are very focused on delivering a high quality product, but every once in a while a faulty/sub-par CordLite will slip through. If this does happen, we promise to make it right.

      Received my Cordlite...months late. It's scratched, it's bent, but it does work. Who knows how long. Everything involved with Kickstarter is a nightmare. I'm done with this website, I'm done with
      pebble, I'm done with Cordlite...it's all a joke.

      Just received my pair of CordLites and the are better than I expected. The quality of the cords is excellent - I look forward to getting the Lightening cables when I upgrade my device. I do have one comment for future generations of the cable - on all of the Apple or other 30 pin cables I have the indicator symbols always refer to the top of the device (this goes for my Samsung tablet as well) - the indicator lights for the CordLite go toward the back of the device. Not a big deal - but I did try to insert them the wrong way on my first use. Thanks again for the great product.

      Creator Dan Corkill on April 23, 2013

      Update: I just noticed the orientation indicators. Perhaps I should be less excited to try my CordLite and actually look at the info printed on the box...!

    47. Corkill-08-eyes.small

      Creator Dan Corkill on April 23, 2013

      Lovin' my black CordLite. I'm often connecting my iPhone or iPad at night, and the illumination is great.

      Minor suggestion: CordLite would be even better with a "top" indicator (like the mark on the original Apple cable connector). A tiny cutout in the metal case or some other way that the "top" could be easily seen when illuminated would be fantastic!

      My first supported Kickstarter project, and I'm very pleased...

      Based on the last update, it looks like I have to wait EVEN LONGER for the laser etched one I originally backed. Is it possible to just receive a black or white CordLite instead? I don't care about the price difference, I am just tired of waiting...

      Creator Brad Ladner on April 20, 2013

      When my chord arrives, will it work for my Iphone 7, or will it need an adapter? Just kidding. It has been a loooonnnnnngggg time though. In a few months I think it'll have been a full year.
