One month later - nothing from Wallbuys Instant Kill - EDIT: It's All Here!!!

Yes, it was a month ago, I was a young(er) man, thrilled at getting a couple of great deals from Wallbuys during their Instant Kill sales promotion. An Olight i6 for $10…Yay! A couple of Panasonic 3400s for $6.69…Yay! WHERE ARE THEY?!!! {8^0)

Edit: Everything I was whining about not getting, showed up hours after posting this thread!!!

I’m still waiting on few items, i6 being one of them. I did get an item in today from that sale. Hopefully, I will see the rest of the items in the coming days.

Sometimes packages are slow...

Wallbuys have the fastest arrival date from ordering to arrival based on my data with them compared to all other stores I buy from. Up until now, I have never had to wait over a month for a package from them.  Im still waiting on someting from the same sale though. But no worries.. Some of my packages from the sale arrived in 7-10 days.

My Olight I6 arrived after a slow 24 days.

Still waiting for my Olight I3.

They cant all be fast, sometimes packages are put on a snailplane... Silly

Oh, that looks bad. Hope mine performs better. Have barely used it.

I was skeptical to that battery. I was supposed to buy a Efest or Nitecore battery for my 0,89$ Fenix E15 (thanks Wallbuys), but then I saw that battery and though. "Ill give it a shot." It was so cheap on instant kill, and I assumed/hoped Solarforce did not use crap cells..

Ill do a discharge test on a hobbycharger..

My cell was full at 4,13 volt or something, charged in Xtar VP1. Lowest I have ever seen...

My TR 3T6 arrived I think 8 days after ordering. My J18 arrived in the states 2 days ago……so later this week. My S7 arrived today.

REALLY like the S7, except the driver. Not a fan of 5 mode lights.

My only experience with them was ordering 9 of their 99 cent knives in 3 orders and got them all within 2 weeks. Hope your stuff arrives soon.

You should get it soon. Just received the last of my hoursecvipapalooza orders today.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I’ve found that sometimes Chinese packages like to do a bit of sightseeing before they make it to their destination. One of my Wallbuys purchases decided to stay in SF for 8 days, before taking a trip to the other side of the US to New York, and then back to me finally. I guess those batteries had always dreamed of seeing the Golden Gate and the Big Apple.

I receive my items in Canada in usually 8-9 days, then its takes Canada Post 8-9 days to clear custom and deliver to me, so a total of 16 days, you can track the order by using your local postal service tracking like Canada Post Tracking .

Hope you get your items soon!!

Thanks to everyone for the camaraderie and support, it’s obvious you all know about the waiting game! Wink

Welllll…this thread served its purpose…after waiting a month for the i6 and the Panasonic 3400s to show up, AND a laser that I had ordered from Wallbuys 11 days after the Instant Kill event, they ALL showed up today!!!!!! Party

Yippee!!!

PS – Chloe, the unprotected Panny 3400s fit the S5 with no problem! 8)

PPS – the Olight i6 is a cool little light!! I figured I’d just sell it if/when it got here, but it may stick around for a while!

Finally got my i6 this weekend sometime. It was waiting yesterday night in the mailbox when I got back. Nice and simple, I like it. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Will see how it goes, ordered a bunch of Promotional Batteries, do not use the Code, just make sure you are getting the Promo Price and Pay. They are allowing only one purchase per item, and buy the 32650 Trustfire first, buy clicking on the item description then add to cart. Actually don’t do the instant buy, just click on ID, then add to cart. Again, do not use the Coupon, just make sure the Total matches the purchases and then immediately go to PayPal Checkout. No quantities greater than One-per-each-offer is allowed, Tentu Cuidado, Amigos… J)

My stuff actually arrived yesterday! Smile

Olight I3s from WB + 2 other packages from WB + packages from IOS and CNQ (those was ordered around 2 weeks ago) Party

Looks like lots of stuff had to wait for the same plane or something and suddenly everything arrived.

Strange though, because my replacement I4 charger that WB sent me arrived in less than 2 week. And that was shipped weeks after the instant kill sale. (btw, me case was handled perfectly and was solved faster than FT usually manages to reply to a ticket)

So even my absolute slowest WB packages have made it within a month.

Placed new order from them today. Smile

WB + item that is marked to leave soon + registered shipping= usually very good arrival time

Packages without registered shipping are more random based on my experience. Some are super fast, some are slow.. Average time is good.

My Yezl S7 finally arrived yesterday.I know why they call it instant kill.This flashlight will kill me Big Smile
It is as heavy as a 18650 flashlight(good for self defense)
I’ve never seen so poorly assembled flashlight.Look at the front O-ring on the pics. Shocked
I’m pleasantly surprised of the driver.Only 2 sec to memorize the last used mode.
Nice smooth reflector,but it is on a side and over a part of the LED Shocked
The yellow ring between the parts is rusty.

The emitter MCPCB in the S7 is not epoxied down. You can easily re center it.

LOL I see someone has experience with their customer service department.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

You guys should check these out:

Performs like a 18350….the all-white ones seem to be crap.

My white solarforce was crap!

309mA at 1A discharge... :Sp  Voltage was sinking like a ship within the first minute.. I dont care if other Solarforce batteries may be decent. No more solarforce batteries for me..

Question now is, Nitecore or Efest IMR?

Im tempted on Efest, might pick up a 10440 too.

Any pros/cons on Nitecore vs Efest 16340?

I know you didn’t ask me, but the Solarforce blue&white 16340, while being a bit over-sized, beats Efest, AW, Keeppower…never seen Nitecore tested.

Totally understand if you’ve been burned on SF though, I’d be the same way.

I love IMRs myself…and at 2A the Efest IMR 16340 does hold voltage way better, until around 3.35v when the SolarForce keeps going, ending up at 626 vs. 430 for the Efest. Silly
