Update #27

All items shipped

1 comment

Good day all,

To date all items shipped. 

We did run into some issues with manufacturing the curley coiled cables. So all orders with that cable will receive a substitute 6' cable. Additionally, all LEDs are bright white. We had some many fun hurdles to overcome for this kickstarter project, including the USPS raised their rates 2xs. 

So much was learned about manufacturing and bringing a product to life. Thank you all for this learning experience. Going forward should you need to contact me you can do so at usbmicrolight@gmail.com

Warmest Regards,

D

Good day,

Production and Testing Completed in China
Production and Testing Completed in China


I am expecting to receive the cables from overseas tomorrow (via dhl). We will process and send them out as soon as they come in. All of the LEDs are white. We will be shipping out all straight 3 foot and 6 foot cables. Because of a manufacturing snafu China can not produce these cables in coiled (curly) format, therefore I will be sending a 6 foot cable in it's place (as a substitute). 

Thank you all for the opportunity to work with you in bringing this project to life. 

Working cross borders, with language barriers, time barriers, 12 hour time difference (night here is morning there), defective products, and the shifts in economy has been an eye opening, learning lesson. Since the end of the Kickstarter campaign I worked hard to bring this project to life and get these units delivered to all of you (my backers). 

Some backers indicated that their cables are not performing properly. Please email me directly at snazzygadgets@gmail.com 

I am sorry it has taken so long. I really am grateful that you all have been understanding and patient. Thank you all for helping to bring this project to life. 

Cheers,

D


Update #25

Mould 2 is completed - assembly begins this week

4 comments

Hey All, Sorry this has taken such a long time. 

We have completed the 2nd mould (out of pocket). Attached are the picture of the mould. This mould was design using the plastic injection moulding technique. (the first mould was for low pressure over-moulding). This week we plan to squirt out all of the plastics, and assemble the cables. 

Note: If you have a new address please send me an email to snazzygadgets@gmail.com . I'll get it updated so I can make sure to send the cable without delay to your new location. 

Thank you all so much for your support. It has taken much longer than I ever anticipated to create and bring this project to life. There were many modifications that were necessary before we could continue production. It is my goal to offer you guys all a really nice product. 

Warmest Regards,

D

Update #24

New steel moulds :/

Great news, We are making new steel moulds for the plastic injection process. I didn't plan to revise the pcb 4 times and make the steel mould again, but at least we are moving forward. Cheers, D

Hi Folks, I am told the circuit boards are completed and the revised moulds were finished yesterday. It's time to marry the 2 together and see if the 2 components along with the cable actually fit into the mould. I'm anxious!!

Through my normal day job I will be travelling to China next week (specifically Shenzhen). I have already planned a pit stop at the moulding factory. True be told..they should be finished by the time I arrive. Either way I get to see what is happening and will take pictures and push them for a completed product.

Many Thanks,

D
