Apollo Penlight Brass Flashlight

Introducing the Apollo Penlight Brass Flashlight which pays homage to the pride and exploration from the Space Age. Taking the original design that accompanied astronauts, the Apollo Penlight includes modern features. The flashlight retains the classic shape and size as well as the hallmark simplicity. It also features the classic brass alloy for an authoritative weight. This fire-safe material creates no sparks and has no corrosion, both of which are a must for spacecraft travel. However, unlike the original, the Apollo Penlight is complete with an LED light. It’s highly efficient so it will last for hours and hours. Just like the original, the Apollo Penlight has a limited power of 1 Watt. It provides all the light you need for your tasks yet conserves the power of the AA batteries.

Review from Kickstarter
I have received a forwarded email from Javier, to a person named Juana, asking to send me a light or research why I didn't receive one. I still have zero faith that I will receive one in post. The blame game of a shipping company goes only so far.

Review from Kickstarter
Still no light, no replies directly via email (conversation dropped). Silence is deafening, insulting and now I'm forced to consider my options here.

I have finally received my light. It was sent out to me on 21 May 2018. If what he says its true and the first batch was lost in transit, this is probably a replacement piece. Looks good, workmanship seems to me as promised. But thru it all, no reply from his end, no tracking number sent to me. The light just arrived. Hopefully it'll also be the some for those still waiting for the light! Fingers crossed he is still doing something about it. He did for me at least. Good luck to all!

Mine is just starting to darken a little, getting a little more depth of tone. Still not sure how the ON/OFF labeling decision was made. ;)

Sent an email through the contact info on the Barbolight site as well. Not holding my breathe on a response, but will post back here if I get an update from them.

Review from Kickstarter
There is a thread for this project on CandlePowerForums. I've posted there in an effort to keep this situation public. Interesting that he posted there that only 4 people didn't get their lights....and yet I count twice that posting here. He also seems to be taking messages for new orders there, while the rest of us are left hanging. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php…. Barbolight is an actual company, but it appears Javier lost control of it several years ago and it then went out of business. He's since relaunched under the same name. I really want to believe my light will still be delivered, but unless Javier breaks his silence all signs point to this being a complete rip off.
Goh Teck Boon
Review from Kickstarter
Isn’t Barbolight an actual company with a website and a Facebook page? Anyone tried reaching out to them there?
Christopher Rhodes
Review from Kickstarter
Yes, beginning to think this is a complete fraud. Will update community as needed.

Review from Kickstarter
Still have not received my light. Javier, I contacted you at the beginning of February. You replied you would look into my missing shipment and I confirmed my address. Almost 3 months later there has been no follow up, no confirmation a replacement has shipped, no communication at all. The lack of communication is the concerning part. I can be patient and understanding of delays or issues, but when there are no updates and no transparency I'm left wondering if you even intend to follow through and deliver. It's a complete lack of respect to the backers that funded this project and made it possible. Any sort of an update/explanation would be appreciated.

Review from Kickstarter
It’s been quite frustrating that it’s almost 1/2 a year and I still haven’t received my flashlight. I have contacted you and you’ve asked me to provide you with the details which I did. But it’s almost a month now since our last correspondence and I have no confirmation from you as to whether you had received my last message or even an update as to status of the claim procedure. Some update would be great at this stage.
Christopher Rhodes
Review from Kickstarter
Still haven't received mine, either. Javier, sent email to you just now to continue our conversation from 2 months ago. Please update when you can ... I'm patient, but it has been oh so long.

Dear Javier. I have not received my flashlight either and I written to your email a couple of times with no reply. I was wondering if you can give me an update as to whether you have sent the package or not. If so, may I have the tracking number? Thanks. I am backer number 151

Not a problem, just make sure my phone number is there, cause that’s the way we get notified to pick up the parcel from the post office

@Christian Adlhoch: The parcel arrived, but was unclaimed.
We can send again, but please stay alert.

Review from Kickstarter
Dear Javier, I sent you a mail.
Still surprised that there is a problem with my address as 10 other Kickstarter projects were successfully delivered already.
Let me know how you want to proceed further.

@Christian, your parcel came back to our office because the address was "unknown". Send me an email to id (at) barbolight.es and I will send you the pictures of the parcel with the stamps of your country.
@Cheung. If you has not arrived it should be on the way back. We will claim the shipping now.

Still waiting for the penlights....... apparently I can have it within 5 days when I buy it on the website, so why does it take weeks and not even an answer yet??

Any news on replacements for lost or stolen lights? It seems like a lot of backers are still waiting for theirs, but the light is now available for sale off the website??

I am in the same predicament as Mike, no penlights on the horizon.......

Not having a lot of luck with email. Javier is there a recommended way to contact you to inquire about a replacement for the one that never arrived?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi everyone, Obviously our logistics for retail need to improve. A lot. Not just that, we dont know if it is for the nice looking shinny aluminum envelope or what reason, but the amount or "lost" or "stolen" parcels we had is something I never faced in my life. In one country NO ONE of the lights arrived on the first attempt. At this moment more than 20 lights are missing and of course we are trying to get to know what has happened... but most probably we won't recover them ever.
Thanks God we además an excess of lights, so we have enough to send again.. and we have changed the envelopes to make them look more boring... so you will keep on receiving the lights. Everyone who has not received a light will received it, anyone with a problem will be supported and our best will be done. You can reach me to my email better than here "jlb (at) barbolight (dot) es" and my answers will be faster. Thanks for your patience and comprehension. Javier

If the replacement was sent, can I get the shipping method and a tracking number? Thank you

Mine's still missing.

Review from Kickstarter
Flickering seems to be independent from old/new batteries - today I used the penlight for about 70 minutes with „old“ batteries (maybe 5 hours runtime) and no flickering at all. Yesterday it happened again after approx. 30 minutes with fresh batteries.
Mark Rein
Review from Kickstarter
I have not received my light and I’m located in the US. Seems like most backers have received their lights so I would like to request a status my shipping or if lost another light sent. I have sent multiple emails requesting updates but have received no responses. Appreciate an update. Thanks

Mr. Kaplan, it was resent. About the flickering... did you tried other batteries? If they drop the voltage this can happen. Javier

Another 7 days and no update or reply about my lost penlight.

Really love the penlight and use it quite often. Today I noticed after about 30 minutes of continuous operation that the light starts flickering. Has anybody else experienced the same issue?

Will continue waiting patiently- thank you.

@Steven Kaplan. I'm still trying to retrieve information about your parcel. Even if the courier company consider it lost or stolen, we need to wait for their confirmation. We will update you asap, bit please keep in mind that no one will be left without penlight. This is one of the reasons we made enough spare ones.

On December 30 I was promised additional information about my missing parcel "next week" (see comments below) Tomorrow will be two additional weeks with no penlight nor any updated tracking information.
