BuddyLight

“Works like a Refrigerator Light for Cabinets and Closets” – Simple, Efficient & Easy-to-Install. Fitting lighting inside of cabinets and hard to reach places has always been a little tricky especially if no power cables are close at hand to tap into. Steven Roberge and team now think they have solved this problem by creating a simple LED lighting solution called the BuddyLight that is battery powered but comes with an extended magnetic switch making it easy-to-install and automatically turn on when required.

After using the buddy light for some time, my only regret is it does not come with a rechargeable battery. You should update your design with such and you’ll have a real winner.

WHERE ARE MY LIGHTS?

I have sent you several emails and all of them were unanswered. I've never had mine delivered.
Backer # 17$ (!)

I've never had mine delivered. Please could you check the status of it? Thanks
Alex
I have sent you several emails and all of them were unanswered. The parcel with the BuddyLight had been sent back as I did not collect it while on vocation (there was a custom charge). How can I arrange a new parcel to be posted please? Would you please care to reply finally?
Marie-Andree Poisson
Got, and installed one of my two BuddyLight. It was very easy. Only thing that would have been better is having stronger LED luminosity.
Stefan Low
Any updates on my shipment?
Angelos K.
Someone in Germany received his and got it from the customs?
My one is not getting released because of the missing FCC- and CE-Marc :( :( :(
Steven Roberge
@Rune and Sam - Thanks for the Pos Feedback! Ideas are always Welcome. Rune, a timer as you suggested will most def be a future option. FYI Backers - I just returned from a short Holiday so some more recent inquiries via email will be responded to very shortly.

Finally got around to setting my 5 up, BRILLIANT! Thanks for a well run project, if you create any other kickstarters you have a backer here ready. Well done!
Rune Hagemann Søvik
Hi, I received it last week, it works perfectly and as expected. Hm - maybe a version 2 could have like a two-minute light period, so that if someone opens and the forgets to close the closet door the lights don't stay on forever. But - that's for the future, as mentioned the BuddyLight works perfectly - many thanks for a well-funded campaign
Stefan Low
Yet to receive any tracking number. Please assist. Thanks!

Hi Steve
Backer #403. I have emailed you looking for tracking info, but have not received a response. BTW There is currently no postal disruption in Canada, but one is expected for Monday, July 11. Thanks
Travis B Klein
Just got mine and its awesome thank you so much! I would love to help you guys out with social media and really letting people know about this. Kickstarter is not a marketing campaign, once this is over the money and interest will stop also if you don't keep making fresh content and use social media to engage with potential customers. email me I would love to help ya out,

@MattOng - your shipping info was updated thank you for sending.
@All international shipments - those of you who sent info over the last 2 days is being processed and updated into the fulfillment sheet and will be sent out in order info is received. Please allow a little extra time for international shipments by the carrier.
@Canada - some backers told me that there is a postal service strike in some areas so please plan on delays if this is the case in your area.
@usa - shipments have all been sent out. It may be just another couple days for some to arrive. Please check your junk email if you did not receive tracking from "Robert" via stamps.com.
MattOng
Hi Steve, I am backer #391. I have e-mailed you asking for shipping status update few days ago, but you seem to miss it. Could you kindly help check the status for me? Thanks!
Tim
I can't wait for the friends and family discount to get more!
Steven Roberge
@Elise - Thank you for the comment and not to worry we will be offering a market launch promotion to all of our early supporters once were sure everyone gets their BuddyLight.

@Logocop - Great idea for a stretch goal and good point with the tape. Nothing but great support and ideas from you throughout the campaign! Much appreciated.
Elise
Mine arrived today. Works! Wish I had ordered more. What was I thinking!?
Logocop
Just received my lights! And you know what would have been the perfect stretch goal for me? Batteries!! Which I thought I had plenty of and, alas, do not. So I've got a stop to make on my way home from work. I haven't tried this with the lights yet, but here's a general tip for dealing with double-sided tape (which, as the installation video notes, can be hard to remove): only peel off a little of the backing tape from either end if you’re not certain of the location. That will let you move things around more easily until you’re sure. You can then peel off the rest of the tape and stick it on for good.

Rob Z... yes... I do have to throw shade! It's bright n sunny in Southern California beach cities here!! LOL

@Ro Naval Bautista - Smart Ass......ummm.....come on....Really? Do you really need to throw shade on others?? LOL
blueumbrella
Thanks for the video! Very helpful.
Ro Naval Bautista
Installation.... ummm... come on folks! Really? Do you really need help?? LOL
Ro Naval Bautista
Received mine last week... I'M SO DISAPPOINTED! ! Why didn't I get more than 5? LOL... So, there I am showing my buddy light to my friends...One, two, three gone :(
I have at least two hehe!
They are brighter than I thought it would be! Works exactly as advertised. It lights up my whole walk-in closet! This product is exceptional! As for the build quality... eh okay I guess. But we are not handling this thing after installation, so... I guess it should be ok.
And once again let me state that this thing lights up my walk in closet, so the lights are awesome! Looking forward to buying more!
Have patience folks, once you get yours, you'll be more than pleased. Great job buddylight!! -Ro
Steven Roberge
@Robert Zander - Great news on receiving the lights! Here is a link to our YouTube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch… I will be posting this video in our next update very shortly.

I received mine today, and they are very nice. Looking forward to installing these, and putting them to work. By any chance, is there a U-Tube installation guide, showing different installation possibilities? Thanks
MattOng
Hi, I am backer#391, would you please help check if my BuddyLight had been sent out? Thanks!
Steven Roberge
@Serene - We may have changed your address per request via message but just in case please email us your change request to steve@buddylight.com so we can be sure. Thank you - Steve
Serene Lim
Hi there i left 2 message wanting to change my postal address but you might have missed it. Please let me know if it's still possible.
Peggy Ovington
Mine arrived today and I love them! I placed three of the five right away and am trying to decide what the best places are for the other two. They are plenty bright. Thanks a lot!
Tim
@Steven, I have yet to hang mine still. Of the 7 I backed for, I will either have only one or two for myself. But I held it inside my coat closet where I intend to put one and it is AWESOME. I just wish I had more cabinets and closets in my condo to hang more of these. As soon as these hit Amazon for sale I will probably pick up more as I should have just done so here. Thank you for a great product! Oh, and @Mark1965, my wife gives me "that look" every time I back something on KS lol. But when it is as useful as these, the TubShroom, and the Ultra Mags I will be getting from here she likes when I get that kind of stuff to make life easier.
