Lol, I doubt it.  Oh and there will only be 15 of them made. Cost will probably be the same as V1, I think was $295?  Don't quote me on it though,....

Oh I see the picture you linked. Kinda like Orion case but with open top? Looks sweet.

It's confirmed they're 2 different shades of gray.

I'll probably start the group buy once these are shipped.

Well realistically, probably longer than you want to wait (June).  :)  And I don't want to be responsible for holding up a group buy.  I think I can stand to dip into my savings just a bit.

Yeah, I'm planning on closing that group buy by the end of April since I was told the lightsavers will be ready to ship by then.

Good ;)

If everything else is the same does that mean that the Lightsaver v2 also has an Alps compatible PCB?

I don't think V1 had ALPS compatible PCB

As for the colours, I'll pass it on to TC for him to decide...

Doesn't look like it

Better pictures of the gray here

Oh wow. It looks a lot like the gray Quick Fire Rapid case tops sans branding. I almost want to switch from Silver, but I'm going to trust my first pick.

Very pretty indeed.  I already have similarly colored KMACs, though. Mine will be the inverse colors: silver on gray.  Can't wait to build it!

I really like the black, and I came very close to switching my order.  I just decided that I already have a few black keyboards.

How many people want assembly service? If enough interest, they might add it....

Yeah, it's a bit late for that, but this will also be included in the lightsaver v2 group buy as well if enough interest.

Probably offer this for future group buy instead...too late for this.. :blank:

I'm in for the V2 and assembly service as soon as it goes live as long as the assembly price is reasonable :) Thanks Elton!

Is there an IC for the Lightsaver v2 yet?  I'm in for one.  I regret that I missed the first.

Elton, do you know how I can get into Eagle group buy if no one wants to proxy?

I have no idea, but maybe I can run that too? ;)

Please please please! I checked the Viper thread and at least 6 members have expressed their interest.

Yes, Elton. Please?

Mashby, Eagle and Viper will end of payment at 15 April, i believe ;)

For Lightsaver V2 group buy, if enough interest, the assembly will cost $70-80. 

Includes soldering, LEDs, stabilizers, switches, and rubric


Oh and I'm not going to open an IC thread. I'll just create a group buy thread when these are shipped.

Question to elton or anyone that can read korean: you guys know the width/thickness of the acrylic inserts? I asked for a quote after giving a local company the.dwg file. I opened it up myself, and it only listed two measurements. Anyone got a clue?
