Has the lightening cable batch been sent out at all?

Review from Kickstarter
I was one of the early backers and supposed to be one of the first units. What is the actual week that these things will ship? The “a few weeks” multiple times is very frustrating.

Received my USB-C... Charges fine. Flash drive is ok. Charging with two AA/C cells works better than I thought it would. The metal backing plate came off the second time I opened it up though, so I sanded the surfaces and epoxied it back together. Not sure why this wasn't done in the first place... Anyway thanks guys for delivering on an interesting device with a lot of challenge production aspects.

Purchased this as im heading across Europe for 14 days on a motorcycle and I thought this would be the ideal tool and since I wasn't leaving till 1st of July I thought I had plenty of time for it to arrive as shipping was scheduled for December the year before , so I now leave in 12 days with no Flintu and even if it did turn up I have no opportunity to test it and put my trust in it , very disappointed and another nail in Kick-starter's coffin,

Hey Dhr J van Vlijmen, Thanks for the question, Single micro USB were released first, then Type C finally, Lightning. Following all single shipments, the group orders were / are being sent. In the case of your 128GB Black Type C... It's being released this week. you will have your device within 10 days. Cheers, Luke

Dear organisation, backer 591 here, can you explain to me the estimated delivery difference between my order and the rest of the orders, Jan 2018 and Dec 2018 is a big difference, I'm thinking production shouldn't be so much different between products

Review from Kickstarter
One more question here. When I flap the cable (the button faces down) and try to charge up my phone (pixel2 XL), the phone also says "charging" and the battery level also drops slower as reported before. However, one diff is that the LEDs starts "blanking" which didn't light up at all when I have the cable connected with the button facing up. What actually do the LEDs blanking / off mean while charging up the phone ? Thanks.

Hey guys, we just published an update and sent out another 200 tracking numbers. If you're not in this shipping round you'll be in the final round, due to be released in the next few days. @Steven @Dickenson @Martin I've DM'd you.

Review from Kickstarter
I just got mine. However, after I fully charged that and try to charge up my pixel2 XL, although the battery level of my phone drops a bit slower, it doesn't look like charging up my phone. Is that supposed to be like that ? Thanks.

I sent a DM to the creator last week regarding to the other unit I didnt receive (I ordered 2 but only got 1) but no response or feedback whatsoever until now.

Review from Kickstarter
Looking at it now, it appears that the Sidekick itself isn't charging at all. Is there any way of checking this?
Martin Gilbert
Review from Kickstarter
Just received my first Sidekick (hopefully a second one is on its way, as I ordered two?!), and wondered if there's any way of knowing whether the internal battery is charged or not, or if you only know when you plug it into your phone and find out that there is/isn't any charge left?

Review from Kickstarter
Also don't have any shipping details - comments on this page are sparse and don't actually offer any information. Disappointed that we have to wait with bated breath only for the next comment which is just saying "slight delay in shipping".

Review from Kickstarter
Would be really nice to get some sort of update even if it is to tell us there is another delay. Having backed the super early version and not seeing anything this is not looking good

Hello - I have not received tracking information yet. I sent a private message and did not receive a reply so thought I would try here. I am backer 869 waiting on a type C. Last update on May 21st said that type-c would have tracking data in 2-3 days.

Review from Kickstarter
Hello. I received my Flintu but it fell apart after just separating it 3 times. The metal plate with the magnets came completely off. Two things I noticed one there wasn't much along the lines of adhesive to hold it in and two when I put it back on it doesn't seem to fit perfectly together like it should. Both issues resulting it it coming apart. Has anyone else had this problem? Also how do I get this part replaced with one that is made correctly?

USB C version showed up today, seems to work, no instructions though, have no idea how to tell if the battery is fully charged. I'd assume it's the 3 lights on the C cable but all they do is flash real quick when the button is pushed, not sure what that means

Review from Kickstarter
I've received mine , usb-c. Charges and works great as a usb drive to my pc. however my phone (pixel 2), won't pick it up as a usb storage device. Works perfectly otherwise and looks great

Can someone from Flintu come in and comment here? Have any Sidekicks other than the Micro-USB ones actually been dispatched yet? If that's the case, just tell us so we know, please and thank you.
