    Default I hates the waiting for my precious....

    Just ordered my first lummi (raw NS)... and now I must wait. I hate the waiting at least I've gotten a lot of new toys lately, but nothing as nice as this light will be

    Yep, I hear you! I'm waiting for mine too. I've heard of some guys getting theirs in less than a week, and others having to wait a while longer . Hang in there, we'll get through this together!

    Oh yeah, It's my first Lummi as well.

    I thought about waiting on blue trits, but that's what I see the most of on here. Plus all my other Trits are green, so I went with that.

    yeah, that's part of the reason I didn't want to wait for blue trits.. I know how I am I'm good with green heh. Hopefully it will only be a couple of weeks instead of a month, but we'll see.

    Blame the tritium manufacturer. Ice-blue has been out of stock everywhere for months.

    welp, talked to robb, just gonna wait til the 10th, when things should be in stock, since he wouldn't be able to get it out til the 6th at the earliest anyway, might as well wait a few more days and get it all at once I hope.

    Ousanas, well, I want to have a variety of trit colours and I feel blue fits the raw nicely.
    It's pretty cool to be able to identify your lights just by looking at the trits.

    where exactly? I'm not in the exact opposite but pretty darn far anyway.

    yeah, I considered getting the white trits for that reason as well. But the only trit stuff I have anymore is my keychain, my watch, and one (of the 3 I put in) in my Spydie D4W... So i'll know exactly what it is

    So THAT's the problem. I was beginning to wonder if it may have been an issue like that, as I wasn't waiting for trits on mine. Oh well, stay tuned I guess.

    I'm sure it will be. I am just too impatient It's worse when I can stop home and check for the mail a few times a day if I want too. Even when I KNOW it's not coming yet, I still keep checking and hoping

    Sigh, for those of you waiting for LUMMI RAW (all kinds):

    "
    Hello,
    Unfortunately the batteries have been further delayed.
    These are now set to dispatch to me on Friday (Tomorrow) this week.
    I expect them to arrive with me by the 6th April.
    Again I apologies for the delays which have been beyond my direct control.
    It will be much appreciated for you to continue to be patient with us at this time.
    Kind Regards
    Rob @ Lummi

    "


    *smacks head*

    Rob's communication has been good, and the torch is going to be amazing, but his website needs to reflect ACTUAL STOCK. I specifically configured my order to ship as soon as possible (white trits instead of blue, NS instead of something more exotic, not that I'm unhappy with those choices).

    You're a crazy man Rob, you sell such amazing products, are very friendly, from what I read generous, you are well liked, but it seems that you really drop the ball on supply lines and ship dates! In my case, it could have all been made easier if I understood the batteries were not in stock, which you knew when I ordered, but didn't mention till I enquired about delays. Same again when the batteries were held up, I had to bug you after another deadline had expired before I found out, leaving this sense that if I DON'T email, I'd never know?

    Fix it and I will personally make it my mission to get 5 of my friends to buy one of your torches, because the torches themselves are an easy sell!

    Au Re: I hates the waiting for my precious....

    koopa.. that is just seriously fked up!

    thanks for informing this. as it seems lummi dont care enough to do it himself.

    as again, i didnt get any email of this delay.

    and i was CERTAIN the light would be shipped this week as there had been already two delays with the batteries.

    and now one more again?

    i am more and more supporting the idea of lummi changing ALL the drivers/lights to work with cr2 or cr123s (primaries and rechargables) -speciality battery is a pain in butt if there is months delay in getting them.

    when i first got the news of original delay (in february) i asked for batteries elsewhere..and they did have them but the shipping time was 6-8 days and Rob promised that he would have them in 10 days and ship the light then.

    so i voided that option in favor of lummi. BIG mistake in retrospect.

    and then came another delay to 25th (yesterday). by the time i heard of that delay (by asking, not by him informing me) the batteries were also sold out from the other location.

    and sold out also in every other location i know that has had them.

    and now its 6th of next month?

    ..and after that has passed it probably changes to 25th april.. or june?

    if im this annoyed waiting this long.. i cant imagine what ichoderso feels like if hes waited since december. i think after 6 months of waiting is full, full refund is in order and free light should be shipped when ever it is finished. HAH


    To Lummi:

    1. update everything in the webpage to the actual status. if something is not available let us know! webpage is updated 20th march and there is still no mention of there is no batteries available. havent been batteries for over month. plenty of time to update that info to the webpage frontpage. dont have people order and pay for things that cannot be shipped within reasonable timeframe. (to me personally, that was 2 weeks)

    2. inform customers of changes of delivery times, delays, etc. automatically.

    3. and consider seriously to change the design to accomodate more common batterytypes if the supply of the special ones is limited or as untrustworthy as it seems to currently be.

    let me know how those emails with rob and aw come out, cuz if I can get my light here faster by having the batteries sent later, I'm down for that. I just ordered a couple extra 14250's from aw anyway to have them so no big deal either way.

    Trits will only be in early next week. So i guess they should be shipping next week for those waiting for trits. Argh. the wait is agonizing.

    allergic to nickel.

    and if you personally like to be red and itchy by using such things that causes that, well thats your personal choice.

    i rather avoid nickel and feel fine, than feel bad. and by doing so i also might be able to avoid getting even more allergic to it.

    and few seconds? umm its in my keys and in my pocket and also it is my edc flashlight.

    few seconds at a time when i need the keys several times day ..all add up.

    and as edc light also minutes a day.

    plus the residue that rubs into my pocket from it.

    Yeah, i rather keep things that make me sick away from me as much as i can. YMMV.

    *stainless.. yeah not bad idea.. might make it bit heavy thou.. i like the AL becasue it weighs nothing ..too bad the camoAL didnt happen.. anodized AL would be nice for scratch resistance.*

    Well, Rob did say he's working on a CR2 light....
    Maybe we can bug him to anodise it.
    Cool to have options in black, grey, olive drab.....
