    Also on their Facebook it looks like anyone who orders now, won't get theirs til late January or February. So February.

    I had a feeling that would happen. So if anyone's thinking about ordering now so you don't have to wait, I'd think again and wait some more.

    At least they seem to actually have all the parts they need to complete at least a few Ceras. I'm pretty sure I have seen my actual unit in that pic Tim posted
    How many people could possibly be in front of me? (ordered 9th Nov)

    Add me onto the list of people who cancelled. During the wait, my Da Vinci broke, and a friend did me the favor of lending me the MFLB which I am in LOVE with. After getting more baked than I do with the DV and the fact that it's made in America made me decide I don't want my money with TET. I think they handled the preorders poorly. I was under the impression (from the videos especially) that they would be ready before December 10th. It was especially weird that they were starting beta tests so late.

    Shit with everyone canceling I might just make 1st batch.

    What an order to lose out on. I've seen several thousands of dollars that have been retracted from TET, just from people on this forum canceling their orders.

    :huh:

    Oh my, ho my!

    From the looks of it (diagonal reading only) it might seem like 1 more option needs to be offered to the voters before the poll is over (Feb 6th, 17h37)!...

    Can we get the records reset?

    I just hope the departure (which we've all read about by now, right?) wasn't related to some technical issue important enough to raise arguments of a somewhat unresolvable nature... Please tell me i'm getting paranoïd all the sudden.

    :peace:

    And those dollars probably would have still been with TET....I know mine's would still have been there if they had communicated with their potential customers better...if the product is late...no big deal, tell me when you think the problem will be resolved and I can have the product and I'll wait...start telling me B.S and I'm off.
    I for one would not have been so pi@ssed off, if all of the TET employees had, had the same story...we were and are getting told one thing from one person and then something different from another ??

    When I cancelled I was told, are you sure?...they will be shipping out this week. Then I see a post by Tim indicating next week. I just went ahead and cancelled. Too much misinformation for me. It kinda gave me an uncomfortable feeling about the whole thing. I was pretty excited like the rest of you but my excitement has sharply dropped off. We'll see what happens after some reviews when they finally do ship. Maybe I will jump back on the band wagon who knows...

    I'm obviously disappointed too by this delay and all these issues that float in the air. I have canceled my order (which I'm still waiting the refund) because of the warranty Paypal... I even ordered a FlashVAPE meantime. Despite this, when Cera will be really ready, I'm still okay to spend my money in this vaporizer..... except now I'll wait, hoping for TET that another new device not make me look forward to in the meantime.
    I would also hope for TET that all customers will be happy with their purchase, because if the bad reviews, it may worsen the situation and reduce potential future buyers like me, and who may go elsewhere ...
    Time can change many things................... TIME.....

    I am holding off till the latching switch and black sleeves are ready. I'm just looking to pack .2g in there and turn it on. Then take my hits over the next couple minutes. I think of it as a SSV in my pocket. Hoping to get 12+ good hits / 3 sessions for me before having to change the bowl. The battery should be good for all 3 sessions and more. Option to add in bubble hash to increase hits. Black sleeve for stealth and for controlling the heat. Mates directly to my straight tube.

    Oil cartridge and use the nonstick tool to load .5-1g and then get 70ish good size hits before having to change the battery. Seems really easy to load and clean. As long as I use high quality stuff I won't gum up anything and it should continue working. This is KEY to having a trouble free experience. I feel a bunch of people will try to run questionable stuff with the Cera oil cartridge and then have a hard time cleaning / getting all the gunk out. Try mixing that stuff with herb in the herb cartridge instead.

    I'll be interested in reading comments on battery life and how many hits one gets from 1/2 gram oil and .2g herbs and all that fun stuff while waiting for all the pieces to come in.

    I feel that the latching switch is KEY to make this vape all it can be. I will still take delivery on the current stock unit, but I really believe the latching switch is gonna be a very important step in taking TET to the next level of success! Hurry up Santa Clause of the latching switches!!:rofl:

    Yeah, I can source my own heat shrink tube and experiment with DIY sleeves all day but the switch is another story.

    A friend who was convinced to order his own unit has asked me three times now, "What's the deal with those Ceras anyway?" the last time I felt like "the gang" explaining the monster at the end of a Scooby Doo episode.

    "So their roof leaked and damaged equipment and computers, they are like trying to get sleeves and the final hardware together, like their CEO bailed out or something, man, I don't know, they are on the way"

    Yep, I'm out of this one also. The lack of a latching switch, different batteries and the overall
    feeling of unease makes me more happy with my money than a "cobbled" cera. No doubt, the
    TET gang will bounce back from this and then I might feel better about tossing $500 to them.
    Meanwhile, my PAX has removed any concerns about a reliable, stealthy portable. No oil here on the
    East Coast for now, so I'm out, Jerry!
