    TEEJ it just worked for me on iPhone, both Safari and the app. Super early bird pledged!

    I would love to see a 4x red, 2x green, and 2x white option for the single pack.

    Which colors did you guys plan on getting? Are there any advantages between the colors?

    Green has a much better battery life. I don't know which version is being used here but my ones are rated at 15 hours for red and 50 for green. That's a big difference. Still, you are only likely to have them on for a minute or two at a time.

    Of course, downside is that green doesn't look like a match.

    Wow!!! These are so cool!! I just put my order in.

    I'm trying to decide if I'd prefer mostly white or mostly red. What's the runtime of the whites?

    Are these just 3mm LEDs?

    Hi TEEJ,

    Thanks for the mails and honestly not sure why it's not working for you but I'll make sure you're taken care of.

    Hi Newguy2012,

    I've not tested runtime of all the colors but I'll start a test later tonight.

    Hi Jay R,
    Thanks for sharing. I do usually find differences due to the differing voltage requirements of colored LEDs that impact runtime.
    I'll have to run a test on all the colors.

    Thanks very much rpm00

    I've listed the min. as 8hrs though the max may be longer depending on color.
    These are smaller than standard 3mm LEDs.

    Update:

    Thanks so much for all the support.

    The campaign definitely has some way to go but I've been learning a lot in regards to what it takes to make a successful campaign which is invaluable.

    I drafted a press release due to come out Wed. US time, hoping that generates some additional buzz

    I'm also thinking I'll update the entire layout of the campaign page to make it look "shmooth" and perhaps more professional. Support from the MBI tribe and cpf has been wonderful but I'm thinking the rest of the world may need a little more visual "slick" to add momentum.

    Some other interesting tidbits, since launching the campaign, I've had endless inbound mail from so-called crowdfunding experts the majority of which are scam, spam or a waste of time.

    I'm also considering extending the campaign duration (to take better advantage of press traffic, should there be any lol) though that won't have any impact on production time.

    Thanks again for your support and of course please feel very welcome to spread the word.

    Good Morning

    I've spent xxx hours revamping the campaign website somewhat...

    It's not live yet, but was hoping I might receive some feedback please on the preview,
    whether you think it's better or worse than the current live campaign page.

    Preview of updated page:
    https://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/0becf027#/

    Existing LIVE page:

    It works after I cleared the browser cache.
    I think you guys should try it in Private/Incognito browser mode.

    Hi Jay R,

    Good intentions of course


    I do have to say after day 6 of the campaign, it certainly makes me realise just how special what we have as a community here is

    The comments are pretty brutal. Thankfully the backer don't see it that way. I don't see it as using a lot of materials. One disposable floss probably use more plastic than a pack of these.

    Yes, I could, but as they were basically just trashing the project I left them there. If Guy wants me to move them here, I will oblige. Does that seem fair?

    Understood, your call. A bit of criticism is to be expected though on a disposable product like this when wastefulness is starting to be frowned upon in modern society.
