1. Have you sent them a follow up email?
2. Did they provide a tracking number?
Yes I have heard of the Turtlelight from the Led museum which was also reviewed by Craig. Turtlelight
Good Luck!

I think the Turtlelite 1 is essentially the same as the Dorcy Cool Blue that can still be found at Sears. This was my first LED flashlight. Found it at Walmart at least five years ago.

Does anyone know if Ledcorp is still doing business? There was talk a little while ago that they went under.

Ledcorp drove me crazy. I have ordered from them 4 or 5 times in the last couple of years. They are slow to ship and simply horrible with communications. My last order (last summer) took 3 month till I got it. No one answered the phone in many calls and no responses to about 3 e mails. Yet, one day, months later, my order shows up. They had billed my credit card shortly after I placed my order so they had my money and I waited months. I simply will not do business with them any longer. The only problem is I consider the Turtlelite II to be the finest flashlight in it's category. Oh well. Good luck.

I have a Turtlelite and it was my 4 year old son's favorite light until I gave him a shimmer blue MicroMag.

The Turtlelite is not the brightest but it is the toughest of my bunch. I pulled the Nichia type LEDs and replaced it with an EverLED. The new combination had a much brighter beam. Let me also add that the Turtlelite has a nice faceted reflector. The Turtlelite's rubber and plastic armor plating has seen lots of tumbles; it still works and looks like new.

I think it floats.

The turtle is a classic. One of the original LED flashlights. But at this point it's getting kind of long in the tooth, IMHO. Just too big for a 1 LED light. Still mine gets use around the home.

I think it'd make a great boatlight if it floats. Big, bulky, easy to hold on to. .

Never thought about the Everled, that would be sweet. .

Yes, I'm 99 and 44/100% sure the Turtlelite floats.

My Turtlelite took over 3 months to arrive also. I just figured I had been scammed again (had just lost $$ to the Arc guy).

My Turtlelite has 2 LEDs (a Turtlelite II?) and a faceted reflector. The Dorcy, which I also have, has 1 LED and a smooth reflector.

I have a turtle lite 2 and it is a good match for an everled with the fauceted reflector and still seems to run forever on a set of batteries even with the everled.
