Not only abuse but also irrational paranoia and fear. They sent or will send the correct item.

I never lost one cent from DX or KD and I didn't need Paypay to hold my hand or comfort me either.

Not only are you accusing Davx of abusing PayPal but also that his is suffering from paranoia and fear.

You must have learned too much from CPF. Im off.

 

Go for it Davx. You have every right to use the PayPal safebuyingprogram. Its made to be used when

you dont get what you paid for. No one here know for sure if KD have send or will send anything until it

arrives in ones mailbox.

It is free insurance. And PayPal wants you to use it because they want you to feel 100% safe when you use their service to buy stuff. And the sellers want you to use it too because people who feel safe when they buy have one less obstacle to buying. Everybody wins. Filing a dispute in this case is far less slanderous of KaiDomain than the slander of calling someone paranoid, fearful, and abusive.

As a follow-up to my earlier post where I mentioned KD had left out a driver from an order. Although they didn't notify me that the item had been sent, I received it today. Thumbs up for KaiDomain for believing me (they didn't even make me take a picture of the driver I didn't receive) and sending me a new one.

I ordered this. http://www.kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=11342 and

got a 40 mm reflector instead. KD promised to send the ordered item. It came today.

Thumbs up for KD.

I'm very satisfied. I purchased 2 of the (fake) Solarforce L2m's with the XML T6 drop-in, and a couple of glass replacement lenses for my M*glites. I placed teh order on 5/18. Recieved an email on 5/20 advising the items had shipped. The package showed up in my mailbox today (6/9)  ~ 21 days shipping from the vendor to Texas, and all items in good shape/perfect working order.

I have been ordering from KD for a while with no issues. Today I received an order of 5 Nanjg drivers and 5 XM-Ls for some projects I am working on unfortunately I only received 3 of the 5 emitters I ordered but they stuck 2 extra drivers in the package. I e-mailed them around noon and threw in the prerequisite picture before they even asked. I got a response about 6 they are shipping out the 2 emitters in another order that was in the packing stage and I got 2 free drivers to boot. Great job KD.

Im new to the flashlight scene, But have dealt with several retailers in my short time. And let me say that ordering products from China will try any mans or ladies patience, Thats if they even ship in the first 3 days after placing the order.

I just placed my first order with Kaidomain.com about 3 days ago, As of yet it hasn't shipped. But to be fair 2 of the items did say 1-3 days shipping time. I sent them a message today threw their internal website message system and asked what was the hold up? They said my order will ship tomorrow. They answered that message within 6 hours iirc so that was good.

Whats odd is they have had a tracking code assigned to my order for two days half implying my order shipped and the status just didn't update. I cant find anything to complain about really as im finding this to be par for the course in ordering overseas.

They do have good items and alot in stock and no 7 days shipping holds like DX does to acquire your order from vendors. So far im happy and will order again.

Ill put up a rating when my order shows up and is inspected. But if i had to rate them now id say 3.5 stars only because im taking into account and comparing them to other Chinese retailers. If it was against an American retailer id give them 2 stars from what im used too. But those ratings mean nothing until my order is in my paws and ill come back and edit my post with a final rating.

Hey guys.. anybody knows how KD handles different orders played on the same day? Want to place 3 orders instead of just one... because of custom problems... Would be really bad, if the ship them in a single package

Just order and pay(!) one at a time (with some time between) and they will send them individually.

Placed my first order with them on July 29th.  (Was just for some spare clicky switches)  They shipped on August 1st and I received it on August 9th.  Wish that I'd found them a LONG time ago...and that they'd answer my "price match" requests, but am very satisfied and will gladly be doing more business with them.

   I placed three orders last night. SF Sales, Manafont and Kaidomain(the "U2" xml dropin is less than $11). SF Sales sent a tracking number and said they would send it today. Manafont says still processing so we will see about that one. On the KD order, I forgot to sign in so I sent an email asking if the order was received and status. The email was answered within minutes. I was informed by them that it is national day and they have 7 days off, the items will be delayed by at least that time. Seven days off for national day? Should be National week. I have to Google that.

No, it's the 3.7/4.2 one. I bought two of them before when they were $18. On one of them the emitter fell right off the star while I was using the light. I have to think that was a fluke. Hope so anyhow.

I put a NANJG 105c 2.8 amp driver in one and it really woke it up. Those U2s they use have a great tint, but are desperately under driven at 2.0 amps with the 3-18 volt driver.

Oh crappy.. now I'm bummed for visiting this thread and finding out the U2 1-mode drop-in is that under driven. I still haven't received it yet but it's been over two weeks so should be here any day. I'm not too excited anymore Sad

 

I was searching for a 3.7-4.2V U2 but all I could find is the 3.0-18V. So am I actually getting less with this U2 drop-in than I'd get with 4.2V T6?

My order was pending for a few days, but the delivery was very fast. Once again, I'm satisfied.

So far placed four orders with KD. Two arrived no problems, the other two didn't. After a month or so I checked Paypal history and realized that I hadn't actually been charged for these transactions, even though I checked out as usual, via Paypal, and without apparent hitches. Nothing to tell me that my order hadn't been processed. Also got major problems with nearly all links to their website, even recently posted ones,. Still, this is saving me money Wink

No email address. Maybe it's your browser as I just went there and the submit button is right there.

Not sure... have tried 3 different browsers.  Maybe it's because I have a new account (switched emails)?

So how is your recent experience with KD?

 

i've ordered a little thing (UF head band strap) 9 days ago and it's still listed as "back ordered" in my account status. should i cancel the order? Lamentably KD has no chat option. since i dont need/want the strap urgently, i am tending now to cancel everything before i get involved in some stupid KD waiting game which i experienced before with DX: i had waited for 2.0 months(!!) for back ordered silicone oil and it was never shipped because DX never got the stuff from the supplier. thanks for some opinions or sharing of recent KD experience so that i get a picture of what i should expect from them. i am a first time KD customer, and i havent seen the UF head band strap elsewhere.

*FMI* i got 4 i/o sh

Got it today!

The head band headband is a good quality item. Very good actually, and i like it a lot. Problem is, without a proper headlamp the headband (or the holder) is of no use because there is good way to tilt (or swivel) the beam, e.g. onto the ground 2 meters in front of you. Even if you have a cap (Chadwick's idea), and yes, Xeno, Klarus P1A, Quark, etc. (21.5-23.0mm bezel fit fine!) blablah,

... the beam would point straight ahead of you or even upwards lol. This headband REALLY requires a L-shaped form factor flashlight or the Quark prism+diffuser lens:


here the stats for this order:

Quote:
ordered: 2012-02-10

dispatched: 2012-02-23 (=said "Shipped" in my online account, order status)

post stamped: 2012-02-28

customer status with this transaction: satisfied

Can delete this KD entry from my sig now..

What's the deal with the blurry photo's in the search results? Also, they're blurry on the product page until mouse-over. It seems to be happening with more and more items. It's rather annoying.

The last three orders from KD all came sooner than expected. They all shipped within 1 day of placing them. I always e-mail them and ask about the items I want first and after their reply I place the order. So far it's working as it should and KD is now my go to instead of DX, for the stuff I can't get here in the US. (KD and CNQG that is).
