Sept. 15th — Lead time on shipping Desire D40 is estimated at 5 weeks * once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).
This longer than normal lead time is a result of the global chip shortage, and affects all manufacturers. ETC is working tirelessly to clear backlogs and source components, however this is likely to continue into 2023. While we all hope its resolved sooner, we encourage customers to plan for extended lead times.
* Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update. Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
Your lighting doesn't always stay indoors. You're working outside at festivals, theme parks, video shoots, and architectural installations - and are at the mercy of Mother Nature and changing weather conditions. You require high-quality lighting products that can safely go where you go. That's why ETC designed the Desire D40XT fixture. It isn't just an ordinary LED wrapped in a waterproof body, however. ETC designed every aspect of the D40XT fixture to withstand heat, cold, rain, and snow, without skimping on lighting features the Desire D40 is known for.
