Getting the same results. DNS error as if the domain is invalid. Yikes.

I hope everything is alright.

I checked my past sales receipts and unfortunately there is no contact phone number listed. If anyone has it please give them a call to see how things are.

Last I remember was back in April when the 26650 lights were about to drop but they were facing a bunch of problems.

Their address is known by those who have purchased from them. What about their social media presence? Any recent activity there?

Anyone willing to send a letter saying something nice, asking about their status?

I know there were reports of UFO activity near them. Certainly it would explain a lot.😁

Stainless available. Seems a QT-L 18350 can be had with a stainless tailcap (Need to be careful not to crush batteries by adjusting improperly for length?)

Speckacuda was kind enough to take time responding to my email. Things are moving along, given all the elements involved in their life.

Talk of Tiny Tank, and the further evolution of Lumenite II. Looking forward to that.

I sent an image of some non human members of our family, she sent an image of this gorgeous cutie pie:

Hey FL fam, we are still here and the micro-factory is still chugging along!! I have a few updates, and will be back to answer questions in a bit.

Rumors are true, the Tiny Tank is coming back in a totally redesigned form. This explains our absence, as we are still cranking out QT Nuggets while prototyping (which means all new fixturing that matches the new parts, all on one Tormach 770M mill). A few parts have been harmed, but the Haimer is still safe!! I'll be back with photos and measurements, but I can tell you that the engine is totally new, more efficient, and a cleaner design that we think everyone will love. The bezel wall thickness is more akin to the old Tiny Tank, with a 1.4" diameter. We'll start off with aluminum versions, and may head toward stainless later if there's interest.

Lumenites are still on hold, no one has missed the drop because it hasn't happened yet. More details there soon!!

Also, thank you all SO much for checking in - it means a lot to the both of us that anyone outside of our parents would worry when they can't find us, much less offer to write letters. I also love that @KITROBASKIN shared a photo of the shop cat, Khatgar. If anyone gets a random hair in their package, it's her fault. We love you all, every one of you made our day, and we appreciate each one of you taking time out to be concerned for two folks you've never met (but, maybe one day?). We are kicking around the idea of having some sort of live chat, if that's something anyone would like to do?

We are still planning on getting some of our old prototypes out into y'alls hands. This will happen in a couple different ways - one will be on eBay as a donation to the place that let us learn to manufacture flashlights on machines we didn't own, A-State Innovate in Jonesboro, Arkansas and their "Thrown To The Wolves" program (a Shark Tank sort of competition for high schoolers). The second way will be on our website, on a hidden page that is NOT available yet but will be soon. I'll post here when it's live, but I maaaay not post the exact page. These will be a mix of old tech that should probably be shelf queens (talking about the OG Qzark, I'll let someone like geisto tell you how fun it was to change out the QTC in that very first model) and old body styles that will be retrofitted to accommodate the new engine design. All will be covered with the lifetime warranty, and will probably come with some extras that won't be listed in photos. This will be really fun for everyone!!

Again, y'all all are incredible and we love the support. We made these can cleaners as a free download for everyone who has access to a 3d printer (if you don't and you want one, let me know and I'll help you find a way to make it happen), and I'll throw one in all the orders that put a request in the memo box. Use it to clean the nasties from your can rim, and the other end will save your nails when opening the tab. Then, you're a step closer to having a beer (for MuscarellaDan and the rest of the heatherns, cokes for the rest of y'all) with us!!
