Dear backers!

As you are all desperately waiting for your WakaWaka Power to arrive (I can imagine why, the first prototypes are awesome), we are getting close to shipping the more than 7.000 packages containing your WakaWaka Powers. Getting there was quite an operation, but we can now confirm we will be making the promised shipping date next month!

To make sure these packages arrive on time, at the right address and with the right content, we have sent you a confirmation e-mail this week (3rd of April). For those of you who haven't done so already, please check it out and follow the instructions.

Have a great weekend!

Warm wishes,


PS. Here's a sneak preview of one of the first WakaWaka-customized waterproof pouches!

      I did pay 06.01.2013 - now we have neary 06.05.2013 - 5 (five) month later!
      Up to now I did only receive "mails" with "promises"
      - sorry - wait a bit more - it´s so difficult for us ........ and so on!
      But not my "WakaWaka" Will I ever get it? I do not know!
      If I will get it it will be too late because I´m leaving for my Ethiopia-trip on 13.05.2013
      I would like to give it away to some children there.
      You write here: "be respectful and considerate"
      I am! But i also very dissapointed in deed! And frustrated!
      5 month waiting - and nothing but mails ....
      Can´t you understand me?
      And I´m sure: I´m not the only on! )-: ))-: )))-:

      I also did not receive the confirmation e-mail. Please resend......... TO all of us perhaps? :) Thanks.

    26. Erwin Smole on

      no confirmation email received, please send again. Thanks

    27. Jon Uzel on

      No confirmation mail here either. Here's an idea, post an email that those of us who are missing it can respond to with our correct info, instead of spamming the comments here with generic "I didn't get it" responses.

    28. Alexander on

      Sooooo is the e-mail coming in the third week of April or is it lost in my mailbox somewhere?

    29. Alex Newlon on

      I'm super excited to get both of mine. I'm an Eagle Scout and will be using this on all my future hikes and I'll be testing it at Bonnaroo 2013!!

    30. Harmen de Ruiter on

      How is this arranged for the WakaWaka backers who backed the charge option? (The first WakaWaka kickstarter project...) I'm one of those backers and did not get an address confirmation email. :-) No problem if this will be a little bit later, but of course I'm curious as all WakaWaka power backers and eager to get one...

    31. Alan Robertson on

      That waterproof pouch looks great! Can't wait to get the ste!

    32. pcahiwat

      i think i deleted that e-mail. all the info in it was correct though. do i need to do anything further if everything was correct?

    33. J on

      I got no confirmation email from you guys, but I get the newsletters...

      My address is the same as on the survey I sent you guys. Thanks.

    34. Sean O'Hara on

      I haven't received the email, my facebook account which I used to auth my kickstarter account used an old email I don't have access to (old college email)

      Do you guys have a support email I can reach out to for confirmation of my order and my address?

    35. Kelvin Tong on

      Looking awesome! I want it now! But next month works too :D
