    July 26... I emailed Rob that I hadn't yet received the Raw Ti; the previous order had only taken about 10 days. I also asked if the batteries and charger had shipped. Rob replied that we should wait a total of 4 weeks before deciding the shipment had been lost. He didn't mention the batteries or charger.

    August 11... I emailed Rob telling him I was going on holiday through the end of August and if the Raw Ti hadn't shown up by my return I'd like a Raw Ti resent. I also asked about the batteries. He replied that he'd resend the shipment at that point if I hadn't received it, and that he hadn't shipped the batteries until he had heard from me.

    August 30... No package, so I requested the order be resent, with batteries, charger and clip as ordered. Rob said he'd mail it "during this week".

    September 7... I finally give up and ask that Rob refund my payment if he is unable to send the package by the end of this week.

    September 11... Rob emails me that he dispatched the order. I replied asking if the batteries, charger and clip was included. Rob replies that the whole order was included, except for the Raw SS clip which is "due in soon". That makes me want to weep.

    September 22... I received the Raw Ti (absolutely beautiful) and emailed Rob that I had received it. I asked about when the Raw clip would ship and received an auto-response that Rob was on vacation.

    Rob also informed me my first delivery was lost. And I'm still waiting for him to send my redelivery (Raw AL & Wee Ti). I think I'll wait till end of Oct.

    I received my despatch email last night and my Wee Ti was delivered this morning.

    Very pleased with it - it's beautiful.

    Cheers Rob

    Wow, I am glad to see I was not alone. I had to wait 5 months for the battery portion of my Raw NS order. Rob said mine was lost in mail and he would resend. This happened 3 more times until I finally got my battery.

    Is it because of the strike that mails are lost?

    It's not a great time for postal services here.

    This morning 48,000 postal workers walked out! Can't tell if either side will cave in any time soon - apparently a very large backlog has built up which will take weeks to sort out in certain areas.

    Sad for them they're not getting what they desire and sad for those who are waiting for stuff and very sad for those whose business relies on the smooth running of the mail carriers. Couriers are much more expensive!

    Sheesh! Merry Christmas everyone - get your cards out now!

    How about Fedex/DHL/UPS?

    Not as far as I know. They are going to do well in the next couple of weeks! Never sent anything by courier myself. But people say it is much more for International - 30-40 pounds as opposed to less than a tenner!

    I'll stick with the Post Office where I can.

    Off topic - how come Tom Hanks didn't find a single torch in all the packages on his desert Island, with all the number of Flashaholics in the world?

    But the chances of that girl being a flashaholic are tiny! Sculptress yes, flashaholic?

    Unless she was buying it for someone!

    Even if he had opened it, it would probably need rechargeables - Doh!

    happy to see people are getting their lil precious toys..

    so rob, how many orders are still waiting for delivery? is the backlog now about to be completely solved and in the past..? do we/i dare to order a new one soon and get it in reasonable timetable/ couple weeks too?

    will you start to update your webpage to represent the actual state of flashlights available for speedy dispatch.. to that "in stock" actually means that they are just waiting for putting together. and also include notion there, at the moment you notice if you are running out of batteries or leds or anything that possibly slows down shipping times?

    i havent dared to order one from you since summer as it seemed that you are swamped with orders and back orders.. and your delays kept getting bigger and bigger. and me adding a new order on top of all the old delayed ones would just add up on the sum. and wait for delivery would of been long anyway as old orders would be the 1st to go out to customers.

    the problems you have had with delivery times have actually caused me to seize carrying my raw in keychain. i am bit afraid of loosing it. and now that there havent been any guarantee that i could get it replaced with ease. i just couldnt take a chance on it. now its standing on my nightstand.

    when i will hear that your troubles are in the past, and the flashlights are flying out the door in steady pace.. i can take it back to use knowing i can buy another later.

    *Flashaholism: DeeP DaRK HoLe im falling into, glad that I have my flashlights to light the way.*

    Wow--lucky you. I've been waiting since mid-April--over 6 months. Wonder why the difference? Although only a few more days left in October, I'm cautiously optimistic.
