Another successful project, I backed on Kickstarter this year, was the Halo LED safety belt, meanwhile available from Halo Belt Company. Some days ago, I received my reward: one of the first Halo belts manufactured.
The makers of the halo belt put quite some effort to make the pledgers smile. The reward included a key chain, a cap, handwritten post card and an additional replacement battery. The belt uses a single CR2025 battery inserted into the belt buckle. One battery charge is supposed to last about 20 hours of continuous glowing.
We do use the belt now for roughly two weeks about one hour a day and we haven’t realized any loss in the luminosity, yet. The fabric the belt is made of is of an excellent quality and the light distribution within the fabric is equal on every inch.
The backers of the project received quite a bunch of stuff with their reward.
Most surprisingly, Vincent and his team put a handwritten note into the package. In fact this means they wrote about 500 cards to the project backers.
We’ve been that overwhelmed by the quality of the belt, we ordered a second one (different color) straight from the online store of the new start-up.
