Latest Updates from Our Project:

2nd batch of ION has arrived! Shipping phase almost complete
about 2 months ago – Tue, Aug 03, 2021 at 02:46:34 AM

Hey Backers,

Just checking in to let everyone know that as of today, we have packaged up an additional 414 international orders that have been on hold. Last month when our first batch of flashlights arrived, it only accounted for 2,000 flashlights. We had to wait for our manufacturing partner to finish the 2nd and final batch of flashlights and send that over to us. It took approx. 4 weeks to get them but we are happy to say we are now able to get back on the shipping grind!

Our International Consolidator came by over the weekend to pick up the 414 orders and are now being sorted at their facility. Once they are sorted, they will be scanned in and you will be able to track it online. International backers who have been patiently waiting for their tracking to update online should be able to track it online at www.ppxtrack.com by next Monday, August 9th (this gives them a full week to sort). If you are a backer with a completed BackerKit Survey and are without a tracking number update online by August 9th, please send us a message with your full name, email address, and shipping address so we can assist you. 

Note:  If you are an international backer, please use www.ppxtrack.com to track your package for the first few days/weeks. As your package begins to make movement through the shipping network and it lands in your country, it will be able to be tracked on www.usps.com as well. This is because our consolidator is a major partner with the United States Postal Service.

Locating Your Tracking Number 🔎

If you are absolutely sure you have completed your BackerKit Survey but have not yet received a tracking number at all by email, you can find the tracking number on your BackerKit Survey Confirmation Page. You simply need to log back into your BackerKit Survey and click on View Confirmation button:

https://ion.backerkit.com

Unanswered BackerKit Surveys ❌

There are 149 backers who have not answered their BackerKit Surveys at all. We have sent out numerous invitations and reminders without a response. If you have not yet logged into BackerKit to provide us your shipping address, please go to https://ion.backerkit.com and enter in your Kickstarter email address to begin. A special invitation link will be emailed to you where you will be able to browse add-ons, confirm your pledge reward, and most importantly provide us your shipping address so we know where to ship your order when it is time.

Messages and Comments 💬

If by August 9th you do not see tracking number movement online, please leave us a private message and not a comment. We are no longer responding to questions regarding shipping/tracking numbers in the comments section because it is public and to verify your pledge we usually need to ask you to confirm your full name, backer number, email address, and/or in some cases your shipping address. Please also do not leave multiple messages and comments of the same question as it can add more delay to the customer service queue. 🙏

We thank you again for being patient and understanding. Working as a 2 person (and even as a 1 person team as of the last couple of weeks) has been challenging.  We will be back soon with another update when we have shipped out all of the remaining rewards. Thank you!

First batch of ION flashlights have arrived! Shipping phase starts soon
3 months ago – Wed, Jun 30, 2021 at 07:28:57 PM

Hey Backers,

We are happy to announce that we will be locking down BackerKit Surveys and moving into the shipping phase soon. The first batch of ION flashlights have arrived to us! 🤗 If you have not already answered your BackerKit Survey, please follow the instructions below.

 BACKERKIT INSTRUCTIONS 📓

IMPORTANT: You must use BackerKit to confirm your rewards, add-ons, and shipping addresses. Without this information, we can't send your rewards! You should have already received an invitation email from BackerKit. If you haven’t received an email, please follow the steps 1 & 2 below. Everyone else will start at step 3.

1. Go to https://ion.backerkit.com

2. Enter the email address you use for your Kickstarter account. You must use this email address because it's connected to your pledge for ION. BackerKit will then send you an email with a special link to your survey.

3. BackerKit will ask you a few questions to confirm your reward, such as your shipping country and address.

4. Accessories + Additional IONs: We have filled BackerKit with add-on options, including flashlights, KLIPs, and more! Anything you add that is more than your original pledge amount can be charged to a credit card through the PayPal Checkout option. All items you add will be part of one shipment!

5. Most importantly, please carefully review your shipping address and phone number. We need your confirmed shipping address information to move forward. You are welcome to change your address anytime, but we need you to confirm your current, complete address now. We’ll send a final notice 48 hours before shipping starts so you can double-check and make any last-minute changes.

Once you're all checked out, you are ready to receive your rewards! We will update you with tracking information as we get closer to our delivery dates.

PRE-ORDER STORE 🏪

If you missed our campaign, you can still get an ION by visiting our BackerKit pre-order store:

https://ion.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-order orders will begin shipping AFTER we ship the regular Kickstarter backer pledge rewards first.

SHIPPING ETA ⏱️

We are scheduled to begin shipping the first batch of ION flashlights in July. It may take us the entire month of July to complete the first shipping phase due to our small team. We will start by shipping those backers who opted to purchase the USPS Priority Mail or FedEx International Priority shipping upgrade ADD-ON that is on BackerKit. We will then ship everyone else by backer pledge number (starting with the earliest backer).

Note: We actually started to print shipping labels and sent out pre-shipment notification emails yesterday! Some of you may have received an email with a tracking number. If you did, that means you completed your BackerKit Survey correctly and will be ready to receive rewards in July.

PRE-SHIPMENT NOTIFICATION EMAILS 📧

When you receive a tracking number by email, please do not assume that this means your order has actually shipped out. Since we will have over 2,000 shipping labels to assign postage and print, we need to spend several days pre-printing them in advance before actually filling the orders. Our shipping software sends out the tracking numbers the moment the labels are printed which can cause some confusion to our backers. We apologize in advance if you receive your tracking number but do not see any movement online for several weeks. We are asking backers to please bear with us during this time but rest assure, we will deliver this exceptional product as promised.

We will be back soon with another update as we move into the Shipping Phase in July!

Thank you! 🙏

And finally, we'd like to share a project from our friends over at XTAR Technology. They have launched their first Kickstarter campaign and if you are a photographer or videographer you might find their product very useful! Click on their image or link to learn more...

XTAR SN4: 7-in-1 Multiple Camera Battery Charger

As an avid photographer or videographer it is not uncommon to have multiple cameras and devices on hand at any given time; each that requires their own battery charger and exclusive battery pack. But taking all those with you means lugging around a bunch of extra bags for space or constantly having to swap out batteries or connections to get them each charged up on a single port. That’s why we developed the innovative and versatile XTAR SN4 Battery Charging Hub that lets you charge multiple batteries and battery types simultaneously at home or on the go, so you never have to worry about missing a great shot or capturing a beautiful video because of a dead battery.

 ZEROHOUR EDC Organizer (with some imperfections)

Just $5.00 each!?

Looking for a super great deal on the black ZEROHOUR EDC Organizer? These organizers are in "good" working condition but will come with some slight imperfections (manufacturing defects) such as loose elastic grid-straps on the inside, a missing center divider pouch, and/or the keyring strap was sewn on with an incorrect material specification. Due to these imperfections, they cannot be sold at the regular MSRP of $20. These organizers are still very functional and you will still be able to store all your EDC products.

BackerKit "Smoke Test" on the way!
3 months ago – Tue, Jun 15, 2021 at 12:27:49 AM

Hey Backers,

SMOKE TEST COMING 🌬️

Our BackerKit setup and approval process took longer than expected but we are happy to say that we are sending out a Smoke Test tonight! A smoke test is where we send out invitations to 5% of backers from each reward level before sending it out to everyone else. This allows us to see if there are any issues with the BackerKit Survey that needs to fixed beforehand.

OFFICIAL INVITATIONS

Tentatively, all remaining invitations are planned to go out tomorrow Tuesday, June 15th by 7PM PST. This gives us about a day to monitor activity.

In the meantime, if you are new to BackerKit we encourage you to check out BackerKit's most popular help articles here: https://help.backerkit.com/collection/544-im-a-backer

We will be back with another update with more instructions tomorrow!

Thank you for being patient! 🤗

Funds collected! BackerKit Survey setup almost complete
3 months ago – Mon, Jun 07, 2021 at 03:03:50 AM

Hey Backers,

Kickstarter has successfully collected pledges and will now release the funds to us so we can move on to the next step!

Payment Summary 💳

Once in awhile we like to share some behind the scenes with our backers to give a taste of what we see on the back-end.  Here is a screen shot or our payment summary page:

Yes, although the fees can add up, it is totally worth it because we would not be here if it was not for Kickstarter platform and the value it brings to our small business. We are so blessed to have the support from YOU the backer community, the Kickstarter platform, and the talented Kickstarter staff. 🤗

What Next? 🤔

After we receive the funds to our bank in just a few more days, majority of it will go to our manufacturing partners; for the product itself, any engineering costs if still owed, CNC machining and/or tooling costs, and inbound & outbound shipping costs, etc.

Fun Fact: Running a project from start to finish is a lot of work (and can be fun as well!) but from our experience, project creators seldom make enough to pay themselves from the campaign funds alone. So the question then becomes then why do it? Well, because we are passionate about creating products, we love what we do and we know that if we continue to deliver exceptional products it will pay off in the long run through other sales channels (e.g. our online store, Amazon, Etsy, BackerKit, etc.) 🙏 With that said, our BackerKit Survey and Pre-Order Store setup is almost complete and we hope to have everyone's support on there once it is ready.

BackerKit Surveys 📝

In just a few days we will be sending out invitations to our BackerKit Survey and Pre-Order Store. We will also post instructions on how to retrieve your BackerKit link in a future backer update. On BackerKit you will be able to confirm your pledge reward, purchase optional ADD-ONS (this helps us a lot!), and give us your shipping address so we know where to send your reward.

We will be posting another backer update with the link to the survey and also instructions on how to use BackerKit as well as an updated estimated delivery timeline.

Thank you!
