Greetings Friends and People,
We hope 2017 is off to a great start for you all, and that life is treating you especially well.
As for us, we're working morning to midnight (and beyond) to meet our commitments to you guys, so we apologize for being slightly out of pocket on emails and responses the past couple of weeks. Nevertheless, we thought we should take a quick break, surface from the trenches, and give everyone an update:
So, things are looking... (drum roll) ... great! Chinese New Year caused a slight snag in our getting two minor parts/materials. But, things quickly turned to green again on that end, thankfully. This being the Year of the "Fire Rooster," we feel, still bodes well for us. So it's all good.
We also encountered a small, but confusing, issue with Evoke's firmware, but we've resolved this.
Aside from all that, some big news that we're ecstatic to share is that our preliminary scans for regulatory compliance testing were, in a word, "amazing."
These scans are conducted to measure unintentional radiation from any consumer electronic device of this kind to ensure conformance to rigid safety standards. This is new tech, uncharted waters, if you will. So the results are important. Very important. That's why we're incredibly proud (and relieved) to report that Evoke's results are legitimately on par with an electric toothbrush. Translation: we're sailing!
Honestly, we're blown away by the results, and have been assured we have a lot to be proud of. It's a pretty satisfying experience when 18 hour days, 7 days a week yield some positive, tangible results. We have been breaking our backs, so it makes some sense, but still... feels good.
Aside from that, things are bordering on ludicrous speed now. We have some exciting (but super secret) things we can't wait to share with the world. We'll have to wait until next month for that. But, for now, just know that things on our end are going well, Evoke is looking more and more like it'll be a handheld masterpiece, and we're pushing the limits of human capacity to ensure we meet all our commitments (yes, including ship dates). Meanwhile, we're also preparing for the imminent blowing off of some socks. Please stay tuned.
Thank you again for all your support and patience, and to all our fans who've been so generous in sending encouraging words and cheering us on as we approach the first of many finish lines, we can't thank you enough. You always remind us what really matters. We love you guys. We'll make you proud.
Peace, Love and Vaping,
The Loto Labs Team
