Blinkers Bike Lighting System

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2018-08-06

Be seen and respected on city roads with the Blinkers Bike Lighting System. By building the next generation of bike lights, Blinkers improve safety on bikes. It’s not about making them more powerful, but about adding extra safety functionalities like turning indicators, a brake light, and a laser projection. This extra lighting functionality is the one thing missing for cyclists to be safer and a natural part of the road. The front white light has a power of 100 lumens and the rear red light offers 30 lumens of power. The latter comes with an accelerometer that measures your motion and automatically triggers the brake light and becomes more intense when you brake. Additionally, the laser projection increases your visibility at night and helps other vehicles realize your space.

Received mine a few weeks ago and I’m very happy with my Blinkers! Great quality product!
Velohub
Hey @Pablonicaco, I wrote you a private message!
Pablonicaco
Mine was held up in customs. I spoke to someone on your team and they said they would handle everything. Still no response. Please help
Velohub
Hey @Jenny, I sent you a direct message through KS!
Jenny
Hi, just following up on delivery to Australia. Any updates with the delivery or a tracking number please. Thanks!
Happy new year.
Velohub
Hey @Paul, for technical issues, could you please send an email to support@blinkers.io? We will take it from there. Thanks!

Also, I'm having an issue where the blinkers stays on longer after it should have timed out. I'll get home and see my rear blinker still on after I last used it 5 minutes ago. I have to blink again then off quickly to resolve. Hard to tell this is happening as I can't see this while i'm riding.
Paul Cuni
I'm having a similar issue as Brian, twice now when I've inserted my rear blinkers its dead and I have to charge it. This is with very light usage over a week, left in garage overnight detached from bike. I think the lights indicate some kind of battery level right?

Hey @Brian, that should not happen indeed. Please, send an email to support@blinkers.io explaining your technical issue and we will take it from there.

I received my Blinkers late last week. They mostly work great (excellent build quality), but the headlight seems to always think it's plugged in even when it's not. As soon as I plug it into a USB cable to charge, the light turns on full blast, and it stays on even after I disconnect it from the mount. The only way to turn it off is to double-click the top button on the remote. I get the impression that this is wasting battery, as well as being very inconvenient when the light is charging away from the remote (and blinding everyone nearby). Help?

I received my pledge today (rear only).
Laser seems to work well, signals work well, mounting is holding it very nicely.
The magnet is strong as hell. That thing will barely come out when I pull it.
I am please.
There are a couple of raining days now. I charged it, and I will see in a week if there are no big discharging problems.
Build quality seems to be very solid. The remote works well and it is very nice. I'm pretty happy with it. Definitely worth it for those who ride daily,
Velohub
Hey @JOSE D ANDRADE, @Trangue, @Benjamin & @Gernot! It seems like some people that have the laser model have this problem. We are reviewing it right now. Please, send an e-mail to support@blinkers.io explaining your technical issues, and we will reply ASAP. Have a good day, The Blinkers Team
JOSE D ANDRADE
@gernot I have the same problem with the rear blinker,battery its discharging and dont hold a charge.
Trangue
Yeah!! 3 weeks since I received the Blinkers! For me it's OK if the battery still discharging even I don't use, I have a phone and the battery lif is about one day, and also i just receive a smartwatch from kickstarter and the battery it's about 2-3 days. I recharge it more often but, it's OK. I pledge for a Laser Set one year ago and I paid 75 % of the price that the creator have now in the market, so, thanks for this amazing product and hope I'll see more people in the street with Blinkers!!! Cheers!!
Benjamin Knecht
@Gernot I can confirm this issue with my rear blinker as well (I got the one with the laser if that's any help). Currently it doesn't hold its charge for longer than 4 days, even if I don't use it. The front blinker doesn't discharge noticeably while unplugged.
Gernot
Dear creators.
First of all it's an really great product.
There is just one thing...
As I received my blinkers I fully charged the batteries. After 12 days of no used I want to mount them on my bike to have a ride but the rear blinkers battery was totally empty. because I was not sure that this was my mistake I charged charged the battery again an take care that no magnets was close to the rear blinkers to protect it for an automatic on status.
But 10 days later (without any use) the battery was almost empty again!
What we can do to solve this issue?
Thanks in advance, Gernot

Still got no reply from my question in my private message on shipping country issue :(

Hey Russell, In our last update we announced that there have been some delays with production and that delivery has been postponed to mid-end October. You can get more information in our blog post: https://www.blinkers.bike/2017/09/06/blinkers-whats-going-in-september/ Javi
Russell Dean
Last week of September, when do they start shipping?
Isaac Bergman
Thanks for the update!
Denver Garrison
Thanks guys, I didnt see any updates or new comments since my question and I did some searching in the comments to see if I could find something, but I didn't. That's why I asked. Thanks again.
Velohub
Hi Denver! Sorry, we really thought your question was answered! Our shipping location is Bilbao, Spain.No VAT will be charged to you and neither to any of the other backers. Thanks!
Denver Garrison
Guys, come on. It's been almost a month since I asked this question. Where is your shipping location?
Denver Garrison
Hey guys, I haven't heard whether you have mentioned your distributor's location. If I want mine shipped to Spain, I want to make sure the VAT is already paid so I do't get charged another 50 euros just to have the package delivered (Spain is evil that way).
Velohub
Hey @Markus, we are planning to send out an update next week. The molds are almost manufactured now and we want to share info about it ;). Hey Roten! No excuses now ;). We are still on track to deliver in mid-end September as we explained in our last update. Thanks!
Roten
So nun haben wir dann wohl alle Ausreden gehört, wann wir den mal geliefert? Gibt ja schon div. andere Produkte auf dem Markt. Also keine Ausreden mehr, liefern.
Markus Marbach
Update please!
Velohub
Hey Ralf, We have been communicating since a while now, that September was the new delivery date. You can send us a private message through Kickstarter and we'll take it from there. Thanks!
Ralf Mahlstedt
Ouch, this delay is MUCH longer than I anticipated... how do I best get in touch with you regarding a cancellation? I still believe in this product, I just can't wait that long... I might still pick one up later through normal retail channels.
Velohub
Hey Ali, We estimate that shipments will start in September 2017. A new update will come out soon explaining how the production process is going ;). The Blinkers Team
Ali Chahat
When do you think you can deliver?
KB
Thanks for the info creator..
Velohub
Hi Markus! We are just about to close deals with the electronic and mechanic manufacturers. We'd like to make the final decision before announcing the partnerships, so that is why it has been a while since last update. A new update will come very soon with this announcement. The Blinkers Team
Markus Marbach
There hasn't been an update since February. What's happening with this project?
Minh Nguyen
Hi will you be sending out an update closer to delivery for backers to update their addresses as I will be relocating soon hence want it sent to the new address. Thanks.
Robert Appleby
Was nice meeting you at Cycleworld@Düsseldorf. One thing came to mind after you asked about an emergency feature. Cars have a system that lights up all the rear lights when you abruptly brake when at a speed over 70 km/h. Not sure which speed would make sense for a bicycle but this could ensure that the car/person behind notices that you've stopped abruptly and can react too. Maybe allow for a setting between 15 and 30 km/h depending on what you're riding.
Sain
Seen the updated design in Copenhagen & looks perfect.
Make it available asap!
