Knuckle Lights – Rechargeable

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2016-03-13

Knuckle Lights are the first and only L.E.D. lights designed to be worn on the front of your hands, in a perfect position to light your path and be seen on your next run or walk in the dark. Knuckle Lights are an ideal alternative to a headlamp or carrying a flashlight during runs, walks or other activities. The extra-wide flood beams move with the natural motion of your arms, providing an even, steady amount of light that illuminates the entire area in front of you.

Good afternoon. I pledged for two pair of them and we love them, they are great! But this weekend we inadvertently placed them in both chargers facing in the reverse direction and now both of them show similar sorts of melt as Eileen described, and subsequently while all the lights still work (thankfully) both of the chargers have a dead side now that will not charge (despite an otherwise operational, always green LED) Should I use this link https://knucklelights.com/pages/contact to submit this issue or message you here or is this comment sufficient to request replacement charging bases?

I've backed almost 500 projects on Kickstarter, and I wanted to say that Knuckle Lights is in my Top 5. They're practically perfect. I really can't think of anything I don't love about these lights. I'd like to thank you for delivering such an incredible reward to your backers. Keep up the great work!

After using the Knuckle Lights for a while, these lights have become my everyday use flashlight! They are so convenient and easy to hold. Great design!

Thanks Edon! Finally! Thanks for your patience and hope you enjoy the lights finally!

GOT IT!
After 2 re-shipments the Knuckle Lights finally arrived!
Dan was very helpful in this strange case.
We both couldn't figure out why the first 2 shipments didn't work out, but "my" Knuckle Lights already have their significant intercontinental "mileage" ;-)
Thanks Dan!

Dan Thank you for your promp response and for checking on the status. i was away for the 4th of July weekend and the parcel box USPS got full so they assumed there was no one residing in that residence. i have requested for re delivery for all mail not delivered at set time but your package was not there. ill reach out to them via phone and see if they can find it.

Hi Fabian,
You didn't receive yours? It was shipped in June, the following is the USPS tracking number:
9400110200883120069507.
It shows that it was delivered to a USPS Parcel Locker in Tucson on July 5. We haven't received any return package for this. Anyway, please let me know if you can pick up from this post office facility. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Review from Kickstarter
My charger does not work properly. When I place the lights in the charger the charge indicator lights do nothing. Initially, they were green and I had to fiddle around with the lights to get the indicator to change to red. Now, the green lights don't even light up when its plugged into the wall and I can only get the red lights momentarily when I'm shifting the lights around on the charger.
Please send a replacement charger.
Thanks

My charging unit does not seem to work. The lights are green when I plug it in, but when I put the lights on the charger the lights stay green. I have to wobble and twist and hope the lights turn to red. I would appreciate a replacement charger. Thanks.

I have not received my lights yet. Can you please explain why that is the case?
Dan Hopkins
Review from Kickstarter
Sorry to hear about the problem with the charging base, sounds like it is a bad connection with the charging base. The indicator lights should both be green when plugged in (without the units on the base) and should turn red when charging until fully charged at which point the indicator lights will turn green. You should be able to charge each light individually on the working side. In the meantime we will mail you a replacement charging base right away. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

Review from Kickstarter
I have received mine yesterday. Feels light but solid build. I noticed one thing though. The right side of the charger LED is always red no matter how long I charge and which knuckle light I put in. Put two side by side or alternate the knuckle light give the same result. So now I have no idea whether the charging base is faulty or both the knuckle lights are faulty or could be both. Appreciate advice on how to solve the problem. Thanks. Looking forward to run with it soon!!

Eileen,
Thanks for your message and sorry to hear about the problem. My factory immediately did a ton of testing and seems the reason it may have melted was because the units were likely placed on the charger backwards. We could not get any charger to malfunction or melt when the units were on the charger in the correct direction, but if they are placed backwards on the charger, it will potentially slowly melt the charging base. Please be assured it is not a fire hazard. The burning temperature for the charger material (ABS) is 280-320 centigrade, while the PCB will stop working and heating in 15 minutes at most when the temperature goes to 100 centigrade. According to our test, the temperature of PCB increased to 80-90 centigrade when the lights were charged in the opposite direction, and then the charger started to melt from the area around the inductive pins. The chargers stopped melting and went back to cool in 10-15 minutes (all the chargers we tested did), because the IC on PCB stopped working in that heat. We have therefore made a small change to the base for the future, so that the units cannot go into the charger in the wrong direction at all. We truly appreciate your feedback as it helps to make the product even better!

Recieved mine in Canada this morning and everything looks solid...will test it tonight with a little night stroll with the family...

Review from Kickstarter
In case anyone is wondering - there was no odor to tip me off, and the charger was not warm at all when I unplugged it, nor were the lights. It was just sitting there quietly odorlessly cool-ly melting.

Review from Kickstarter
Also just noticed, I had set the a/c charger on top of an older unused (and not plugged in) desktop CPU. There is now a melted area on the CPU handle casing nearly as large as the charger. And, noticed the charger was also melted on the side next to where the cord plugged into it. I had to carefully work the cord out, it was stuck pretty well too.

Review from Kickstarter
Spoke too soon. Mine is defective and major electrical hazard. I plugged in to charge after leaving the below message, 3 hours ago. I always charge new items only when I'm home and nearby the first few times. About 15 minutes ago I heard a loud "tick" sound - made mental note. About 5 minutes later, heard another. Recognized potential electrical sound. Unplugged Knuckle Lights charger. Removed one light. Fine, works. The other one would not come out and took me real wrestling with it to break it out of the charger. This second light is now dead (it worked out of the box) and the black seating area directly under that light is melted, and there is a wide melted area also on the underside of the charger.

Agree with the others, seem quite solid, bright, and very well made so far.

I just received my unit a few days ago and tried it out for the first time last night....excellent product! I've backed over 30+ projects, and i think this is definitely one of my favorites. Happy camper here!

I received mine today in Pennsylvania. Very well done project, and product. The lights are of high quality, and I'm well pleased with them.
Thank you for running such a great campaign. I'm certainly interested in supporting you in the future.

Got mine today!after playing with them for 5 min, gotta say these things are extremely well made, very bright and work like they should. I bought 2 pair and the quality of both is outstanding! Thank you

Review from Kickstarter
Got mine today. They are more compact, brighter but weigh slightly more than the original. I think these will work for more people and be more comfortable given the compact design. I won't need them for a couple of more months but I'm certain these will not disappoint.

Hi Ben,
Thanks for your message. Good news! All of the Kickstarter orders have shipped as of last Friday, so your set it on the way to you right now. To Australia will take a little longer to receive in the U.S., so I would expect you will get yours next week. Thanks again for your support!

Hey Dan. Just curious if the units turned up as you hoped. Can't wait to get them. Winter sucks!

Hi Angelica,
Thanks for your message, it looks like it will be mid-June before we will be able to ship. Production at our factory is almost complete and we will be packaging this week. It will take about 3 weeks to get the product from the factory. Thanks!

Med Stage Srl - Umberto Amato, great question. I am working with the factory right now to see if they can provide the European adapter for the pre-orders to Europe. I believe it should be no problem and we will be able to provide, but still waiting confirmation. And Ciaran Edwards, thank you for your comments, and you are totally right, the usb adapter will work and it can actually be used with other wall adapters that you may have (from iPhone for example). Thanks!!
