Valo Tiny Versatile Flashlight

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-04-03

VALO is a tiny versatile flashlight which is extremely convenient. You can wear it, wrap it, or even use the magnetic clasp to hold it in place. Totally compact and rechargeable, this light source is designed to go anywhere. Small yet mighty, VALO has three solid white levels that vary in brightness and a flashing white light for numerous needs and activities. Additionally, it comes with a red light which can flash or remain solid which and helps to maintain your night vision. VALO is more than just a pretty light – it’s also smart. With mode memory, it turns on in the last mode you were using. You can even also disable certain modes you don’t need as well as review the battery level. And, finally VALO will not dim when the battery gets low.

Review from Kickstarter
Really happy I came to this. I was about to suggest on doing a relaunch. I was with another project they got suspended. And we where able to get most people into a group they still wannted the product. So what I'm going to suggest. Is create a Facebook group. Which we can have everyone join. And we can all work together on getting the word out, and help fund this product. I'm willing to help with everything I can.

@Daniel Hutchings Hi Daniel. We fully intend to re-launch, and have been working to redevelop the light and re-think the campaign. Having invested significant time and capitol into the first launch, we have had to take some time away from VALO in order to create a stable foundation for this and other projects. We will work on giving some more detailed updates at the start of the new year.

Hi, I was wondering if this was going to still be relaunched in the near future? Any updates on the status of this?

Review from Kickstarter
@Fireman EMT Sorry for the radio silence. We have had to focus on our existing work for a little while to keep our heads above water. You'll be happy to know that we have done some considerable redevelopment which has seen VALO evolve, and we are really excited to show you. We are currently ironing out some production kinks and will keep you informed when we are closer to launching. In the coming weeks we will try and be a little more proactive online! Thanks for your patience.

i can't wait to see people piss off and angry when their promising of "reworking and re-releasing" fail too.

Stephen, thank you for your feedback on the survey. You raise some very interesting points, we will be sure to take them on board!

Review from Kickstarter
@Nyker Design. I filled in the survey, left a few ideas. I feel the problem is that mini torch market is already flooded with lights in all shapes and sizes. You need to think of a way to make your light unique and include something the other torches do not have. Have a look at some of my suggestions I included in the survey.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi folks, Thanks for all your comments. We are committed to reworking and re-releasing VALO and your support will be paramount in making that new effort successful. If you have the time to fill in our quick survey it would really help: https://nykerdesign.typeform.com/to/uP8Zd0 See you soon! - Nyker Design

Bad luck, Dave and Sam. I'm confident you will get the right funding next time. From Dad-O

Review from Kickstarter
Maybe the Bullet torchlight campaign outshone you and pulled backers away from this campaign. I think you should try again when there aren't any other EDC torch campaigns running. Also maybe consider if your goal can be lowered...cos you did gain quite a good amount of backers but the goal is just quite high.

Alright, who has ideas how to make this happen?

Thanks for the support and kind words. All your help is greatly appreciated and we will continue to do our upmost to get this handy little product manufactured.

Review from Kickstarter
As I'm saying: If everyone tweeted, shared on Facebook, Instagram and whatever social media they had it would make this campaign a lot more successful. I think everyone should pitch in.

I've looked on both amazon and eBay and haven't seen anything like this. So I don't know what your smoking but you should stop. It's messing with your head

Review from Kickstarter
I think this product is amazing and clever. I'm surprised it hasn't funded within hours. :(. I'm hoping it gets funded ! I can use this in so many ways and make my life easier
Nyker Design
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Joseph We are still hopeful about this campaign, so are still pushing through with all our plans. We have no intention for VALO to stop if this does not get 100%, but we will have to go away and re-assess our options. If that situation arises we will set up platforms to keep everyone informed so you hear about it first. You can find us on Facebook and Twitter @VALOtorch . Additionally we are just getting going on Instagram, which should be up in the next couple of days.

Hi Ram,
No-one wants to see this succeed more than us and we are doing everything we can, with our limited budgets, to get the word out about VALO.
Anything that backers like yourself can do to help spread the word and attract more attention will increase the chances of success.
Thank you for your support!

Hi Guys, Please market this better! Are you using social media ads etc.? I'm afraid at this rate I won't be getting this awesome product in my hands. :( Regards. R

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Brian,
Yes the cord can be tightened around the head to allow use as a head torch. It's surprisingly stable, but for running etc we'd recommend using the magnetic clasp on clothing.
We do intend to offer separate mounting components like a headband in the future, but we wanted to concentrate on the basic flashlight to start. Look out for further developments with this.
Brian
Review from Kickstarter
Would this work as a headlamp? Maybe make an accessory headband so this could be used that way?

Review from Kickstarter
I would be a second interested in the Nichia 219 series with a 90+ CRI

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Midhun,
The LED we are using has a colour temperature of 4000K and a CRI of 80Ra. There are slightly higher CRI models in the range but they have a lower total light output. Our research showed the average user prioritizes total light output over the colour rendering.
Midhun Sreekumar Menon
Review from Kickstarter
I see many temperatures in Luxeon site and many models in 3535 line. Can you give the correct part no.
Nyker Design
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Midhun,
Thanks for your question! We are using High CRI LUXEON 3535 LEDs. Looking at the datasheets, the LED you suggest has very similar colour rendering characteristics.
The advantage of our choice is it is more suited to the power output we have chosen. The CREE is undeniably a good emitter but at the current we are supplying the LUXEON is more efficient.
Midhun Sreekumar Menon
Review from Kickstarter
Hi. Whats the LED emitter being used. Is it possible to employ a High CRI LED emitter like Nichia NVSL219B 220LM 3500K. This can drastically color misinterpretations and make this much more versatile.
Dave Walker
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kucabara. We are confident that it is strong and durable enough for normal use. I'm not sure how it would fair in a blender, but its small shape transfers force well and shouldn't be prone to awful scratches. We will be able to test and demonstrate further when we have production units.
