They've shipped the cells I ordered on Wednesday on Saturday (Friday UK time). With a tracking number which will likely make it into the HK tracking system about the same time as the package arrives.

Looking good so far.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I just tried ordering a UV 'fauxton' from this website.  While on their banner they claim to offer 'free shipping', I can't seem to avoid their 'registered mail' fee.  Is there anyway to deselect this option? 

False advertising in my opinion.  I'm hesistant to buy from them...

I just had a look at their FAQ.  There heaps of chinglish there to decipher, but I found this 'question' quite funny:

 

    8. How is the quality? Do your electronic products catch on fire a lot?

    A: We supplied our products to all over the world and got very good reputation from our clients. Our Quality is guaranteed.No li-ion battery catch on fire! It is very safe and stable of our batteries.

The registeration fee is compulsory, but no surprises otherwise.

My package was shipped about four days after I placed it, including weekend.

It is now in HKP, waiting to be shipped (for a week now, are they competing with DX for incompetence? :/ ).

Q: Why do all your products end in -fire? (Ultrafire, Trustfire, Uniquefire) Does this mean they are guaranteed to produce a fire?

They emailed me last week to tell me that the cells were held up in HK Post (The email I got from them wasn't in any of the variants of English I speak so I'm not at all clear on what they actually meant.), it appears they had actually checked the HK Post tracking which is way better than most. 

 

However the cells arrived today.

 

If they are now gone, it is a pity - I'd certainly have ordered from then again.

I got my XTAR WP2 + some UV and white keychains today. 

I too would have ordered from them too if they weren't gone. I hope it's just temporary.

I ordered an XTAR WP2 charger, and one keychain light of each type: uv 395nm, uv 390nm, uv 365nm, white normal, white 10mm.

Haven't tested the WP2 yet, but it looks just like the pictures at the xtarlight site, and came with both AC and 12V adapters (I asked for the car adapter so I don't know if they always ship it).

All the keychain lights work, but I'm not sure the 365nm is indeed 365nm. They were packed inside the XTAR box, so everything arrived in good condition.

Charged the first two of them. Now discharging one at 0.5A. Then I'll discharge one at the maximum the charger will allow as these are going to be asked for 1.8-2A in their intended use.

IMR 14500

 

465mAh so far out of it and half a volt to go till it stops. The capacity rating may even be honest. The next test after that is to put the XM-L modded Mr.Lite J4 on the lightbox with a freshly charged 14500 (flame Trustfire protected) and with one of these cells to see how they compare.

While the initial brightness is a fraction lower, the IMR cell maintains the brightness a lot better. And they were around what I paid for the flame protected Trustfire 14500s. Look like a pretty good deal to me.

Capacity measured at 568mAh. Which since it says 600mAh on the wrapper is completely amazing for a Chinese cell.

I tested the XTAR WP2 with the Gray protected Ultrafire 2400mAh I got from the tMart deal.

It charges them both to 4.10V in a reasonable time (didn't measure - maybe 2 hours?).

There was some problem with contacts (I needed to put the batteries in a certain position, otherwise the charger won't detect them), but I think this has more to do with the batteries plastic cover than with the charger itself.

Placed an order for some IMR batteries (10440, 14500, and 18650). Their prices and selection are very good on IMR batteries. I was a little disappointed by the "free shipping" but not free "handling". But they only charge it on the first item ($2.27). So I got six batteries for less than $20. I registered first and then placed the order. It went very smoothly and I got a confirmation e-mail from Best In One as well as PayPal. Then later today, I got a status update that my order was "complete". I checked on the status of the order on their site which said under Status "canceled" and under Comment "complete". I didn't remember canceling anything, so we will have to see. That has been the only hiccup so far.

Well, just to try it out. I did their online chat and they said everything is fine and they will have their webmaster fix the "canceled" thing. Impressive so far!

Just looked again today and they have raised the prices on all of their IMR batteries by $2 per pair.

I had ordered 2x18650 IMR and 2x14500 IMR cells from bestinone.net at 29.Apr. The order was processed fast and cells were sent in the day. The most shocking experience I have ever had from a HK buy, the shipping was tracked and it came in our country in no more than 3-4 days, and arrived today at 5th of May. And the last 2 days past only by the items waiting to be sent in the city.

The cells arrived alright. I quick charged them via a Turnigy Accucel-6 charger up-to 4.1V and even lower (fast charge usually charge up to %85, and in this case around 4.05V).

 

I tried the cells on a self built 2.8A (8xAMC7135 from KD) XM-L light and the tail current was around 2.6A at 4.0V cell voltage. I tried 14500 on the same light and a 600mA 14500 could give 2.6A easily. So I guess these are genuine LMR cells or they have low internal resistance at least.

 

Would like to buy from them again, better if they could have sold the cells at the previous rate.

Would you please measure the capacity at different currents from fully charged cells, or at least at highest discharge rate you can. As you have Turnigy charger this is probably doable.

Got my IMR batteries yesterday. I'll do a review of them later on, but I'm not real sure they are true IMR's. I need to do some more testing. One of the 14500's had a voltage reading of 1.5V out of the package, but most of the others were 3.8V. The maximum discharge rate of the Turnigy is 1A, so that won't be of much use except for measuring overall capacity.

OK, so here's my experience with them.

Feb 14, I've contacted with them asking if they have in stock Xeno E03 black NW. Kiko Ho kindly replied me the same day. I also ordered protective case for my 14500.

Feb 16, my items were shipped (registered shipping)

Don't remember why, but mid/late Feb, HK delayed almost all shippings. OK, no prob, Kiko warned me too about extra delay.

Late March, no item, nothing. I've emailed Kiko, and he/she told me to wait a little bit more.

Mid April,  still without my Xeno. Another email to Kiko. The same reply (i.e.: wait a little bit more)

So, I remembered that I have tracking number. Firstly I've checked with HK mail tracking. Surprise!!! 

Quote:
The item (RBxxxxxxHK) was in transit within Hong Kong or its destination on 8-Apr-2011.

WTF?! 2 months later and still in HK?? Flat Stare So I decided to check it with Correos (Spanish tracking). Another big surprise! Looks like my package arrived to the postoffice March 11 and was returned to seller 2 weeks later!!! :~ WTF?! I haven't received any notice! Flat Stare (a badly written name/surname/ZIP code?? Don't know) I went to my post office and they told me the same, that according to mail tracking, my package arrived March 11 and was there till late March.

Ok, no prob. I've told Kiko what happened and will wait till they receive the package back. April 9, HK mail tracking show me this message.

Quote:
The item (RBxxxxxxxHK) was tendered for delivery on 9-Apr-2011 without success because the addressee was not available at the time of delivery. Addressee was advised to pick up the item.

Another email two days later. Kiko told me that the package only left Spain April 9. Another WTF?! According to Correos, the package left Spain on March 31, and of course, Correos can't provide mail trackin once the package left Spain. So, according to HK mail tracking, April 9 the package arrived in HK post office.

One week later or so:

Quote:
The item (RBxxxxxxHK) was returned to sender on 20-Apr-2011.

Another email. Nothing, the same reply, they still have not received the package back.

And till late May, I was sending emails every week. The same f%$king relpy. The package left Spain on March 31, and two months later you still haven't received it??? "was returned" mean that, that it was returned, not "in proccess", not "being returned" or whatsoever.

Two days ago, after 20 or more emails, they returned my money back. BUT I HAVE TO PAY PP FEES ALSO!! WTF?! After 3 months and after sending them more than 20 emails I have to pay PP fees also? F$&K YOU!!! I'm 100x100 sure, that if I weren't so persistent, they never return my money back!

Don't trust them! And fill the PP dispute before 45 days limit in case you haven't received you package. They reply you the same day, very kindly, yes, but still, don't forget to fill the PP dispute on time. I didn't do that, and had to sent dozens of emails and wait weeks.

I received my second order two days ago. Again it was a below 2 week delivery. With the tracking number given, I saw it was our post service delaying it 4 -5 days. So exceptionally good service for me. Interesting how things go so mixed on your sides.
