Crabby Wallet

Crabby Wallet
· ·

Backed the Crabby Wallet on Kickstarter on 9th April 2013, the project got funded on 3rd May 2013 with a total of US$308,838 raised though the initial goal was only US$10,000. I bought 2 Crabby wallets, an orange for myself and a pink for Li Xiang. Paid US$16 + USD $16 + US$5 (shipping) = US$37 (S$46).

They have some mixed up and instead of pink, they shipped a purple to me despite the contents on the delivered envelope stated pink. But Ryan from Crabby Wallet is kind enough to send me a new pink Crabby Wallet and at the same time I get to keep the purple! Thank you Ryan!

limb.al was the 10th Kickstarter project that I backed and the one that got delayed the longest! I backed the project on 15th May 2012, got funded on the 8th June 2012 and was supposed to ship in September 2012. But unfortunately due to delays after delays, I finally got it almost a year later on 1st August 2013.

I kinda regretted backing this. Paid US$55 (S$70) which includes free worldwide shipping for 3x limb.als + 2x accessories (2m meter female USB extension cord or USB car charger). I chose 2x Micro USB limb.als and 1x Apple 30-pin limb.al. For the accessories, I chose 2x 2m meter female USB extension cord, but when I received it, I only got 1. If you look at the comments left behind by other Kickstarter members, they are basically condemning it.
