While some people have been receiving their V3 headlights over the last few months, many of you are still waiting – but your wait is almost over! This post is to tell you about our plans to clear the waiting list by Christmas.
Where we are Now
One of the major reasons that you haven’t all received your V3 headlights yet, is the fact that my equipment only allowed me to make 1 battery case every 2 weeks. With my new gear, I can now make up to 6 per day.
The downside is a cosmetic one. The new battery cases have one end which looks pretty ugly. Instead of being streamlined and smooth, they now have a chunky and irregular appearance. The feedback I’ve gotten from most users, is that they’d prefer to have an ugly battery case than be stuck on a long waiting list.
The ugly cases are still perfectly functional, and a good deal stronger than the old ones too. You can see one of the original cases on the left for comparison. If you want, you can always sand it smooth with sandpaper, but it will never quite look like the original.
Where We’re Going
Clearing the waiting list is important, but I’m much more interested in making things better. So we’ve also got a whole new battery case design which will be beautiful and much stronger than anything you’ve seen from us so far. I’m projecting that it will be ready around June/July 2013.
When the new case becomes available, I want to offer it as a free upgrade to any existing V3 owners. All you’ll need to pay is the postage cost.
That’s the plan anyway. If things change, then I’ll let you all know.
