    Clarifications:

    If you ordered on my store already this is the promise: "Pre-order Now. Ship ~ Mid to end of October."
    This promise has nothing to do with any serial. There are no specific serial promise on my store. There is not even a mention of serial on the store sales link.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54-lights/products/sky-lumen-nguyen-the-bulletproof-flashlight
    Therefore, pre-ordering on my store only promise a SLN that ships about "Mid to end of October".


    Ok now lets move on to the Serial reserve thread here:
    In this thread I promise that if you successfully reserve a serial before everyone else after I say Fiat Lux at 6PM tonight then that serial is yours. You will get THE SLN with that specific serial. You are guaranteed this serial regardless of when you ordered on the store. If you have not already paid on the store you may pay for the light after you secure your serial. If you have already paid I will assigned reserved serial to your pre-paid order. If you paid already but did not successfully reserve a serial tonight I will personally email you your options.

    Regarding serial reserve please only list the serial(s) you absolutely want. If you win those serial they are yours. You cant back out or pick and choose after.

    ---------------------

    Here are some background info just in case it helps to further clear up stock questions.
    Serial 1-24 Black HA III should be in my hands 1st-2nd week of October.
    Serial 25 Raw polished is in my hand right now and is up for reserved tonight along with the other serials listed in post 1.
    Serial 26, 28, 29 & 30 are Raw polished and is on it's way to Illumn. They will decide these serials fate.
    ...
    Batch 2 serial will be 31-60 and should be in my hand hopefully end of October. If there are delays I will of course update ASAP.
    Details on batch 2 finishes and metal type will be updated ASAP
    Reservations for batch 2 will be open ASAP

    I hope this clears it all up.
    2 more hours :-)

    Questions:

    1) Any changes in the layout you guys want?
    2) Allow unlimited serial reservations per person?

    I think maybe only allowing one or two per person, at least initially, would be more fair. Maybe allow more than two claims for lights, just without a serial number choice past two? Just some quick thoughts, I have no problem with allowing unlimited serial reservations either so no big deal as far as I'm concerned.

    7075 for the first 30 is 100%. Serial 25-30 should be delivered tomorrow for photos. If everything looks good I will snap some photos and launch :-)

    Broke Re: Sky Lumen Nguyen Pre-Order & Serial Reserve

    I didnít forget my promise, Vinh.

    I am in for 2x for me, and additionally, Iím buying #001 for you, as well.


    Edit:

    Found it:

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...=1#post5233566

    Funds sent! Order #6213

    #001 for Vinh
    One with a 12 LED Mule
    One with W1.1 Thrower
    and all the add-on goodies.

    Now, if I am lucky enough to snag #002 and #003 for myself, all would be perfect.

    Got lucky
    one down, will get the other from the next batch!

    So, we reserve the serial number here with a forum post and then check out at Sky Lumen... UNLESS we buy one from Illumn.com... in which case we reserve the serial here and then purchase it at Illumn?

    If that's the case, does it ship from him or from you?

    Wait, so now raw is only Illum? This is turning into a PITA, I have zero need or desire to engage yet another vendor. Bummer.


    In any case, hearty congratulations on getting this into production.

    I just added 1 Raw polished Serial 25 to my list of reservation. So I guess you can try to reserve it if you want. :-)

    I promised Illumn I would save them the Raw from this batch to thank them for helping me since day one of me getting into the world of lights. I had no clue the Raw would turn out so beautiful! I will make at least 5 more Raw in the next run.

    Okay.... so is he going to coordinate the SLN sales launch with you or is he free to sell them 2 days early, 2 weeks late or never, if he doesn't want to? I got no clue. I am going to seend them to him tomorrow and he will sell it however he wants.

    Obviously, with only 3 clear anodized available, There are 5 for sale actually. Illumn gets 26, 28,29,30. I get 25 for sale here. Saving 27 for Phuong because both of us coincidentally guess the number during the unboxing video. Also the 27th is the day we got married.


    timing is huge and since there wasn't any hint of this mentioned earlier, I just want to make sure I'm asking the right questions so that I don't bugger things up.

    Thank you, Vinh.

    Decided to keep Serial 25-30 Raw for this round. Raw is just very nice. I will deal with other finishes in the next run.

    Can't blame you for that, those looked incredible in the video, such a nice polish straight from the factory!

    Looks like the initial run is sold out. Not sold out. Haven't even "started" ;-)

    Vinh, does that mean only those of us with order numbers should post serial number requests tomorrow? Ordering on Sky Lumen right now only gets you a SLN light of random serial. You must post here to reserve specific serial. Run 2 will follow Run1 back to back so do not worry about stock

    OK, Iím confused. The website says the SLN bodies are sold out. Is that incorrect?

    FYI
    - The standard single 21700 body, Standard head, and Clicky tail cap can only be had with the main runs. There will not be spares available (at least not anytime soon).
    - I will release a separate Diving bezel only (and may be other bezel options), Twisty tail cap only, and 4*21700 body only down the road when I recoup some funds.
    - First 30 is 7075 as we know. I have not decided on the next 30 but chances are it will be 7075 too after I saw how nice it is in person.
    - Raw aluminum oxidize. I got no clue how it will look in the future without a coating but I suspect one will enjoy the natural color shift anyway. Future re-polished is easy and you may send it in for this in the future if you must have your light shinny.
    - The host and the light engine is all you need to have a operational light. Everything else is included although I would recommend a spare ORings package.
    - I will eventually add specs to the popular light engines.
    - There are no limit to how many serial you can reserve. Just post all the serial you want ASAP. You might not get them all. However, please only post the serial you want or sure. Do not post 3 serial and then back out of 2 when you actually landed all three.

    Wait what? 4x18650 body down the road? Like a stick, longways, end to end? Or popcan style? If you mean long ways, I donít understand why you wouldnít use 3x or 4x21700s rather than 18650s.

    Unless you meant a 4 led emitter head (i.e. quads) with 18650 body?

    I'm thinking about the 12 LED mule P60vn--will that work with the way that the bezel is designed? I'm thinking that this host is hefty enough that it will keep 12 LED bright for a long time before getting too hot, but that big beefy bezel looks like it might interfere with a crowded mule circuit board.
