I must to share a negative and unprofessionally support from kaidomain.

First of all when I open a account on their site I was unable to order try their website with some strange error code, I send that to their support and they reply that I try to change browser and delete cookies… Try all of that and no result, though in all other sites I order normally and without problems, so I doubt that there is a problem to me.

Then I was limited with my orders directly to them and pay with PP when they send a payment request, it was pain in the ass ordering on google talk from them, often happened that no one is online 2 days etc, then told me that they have problems on google talk and that move on skype.

So similar situation is there very very very slow responding, I don’t know what is problem and now they will compete to other stores like Gearbest and Banggood for example that have even a live chat ! So if they need a worker on support I do not understand why they do not hire it ? In my opinion stores that have low support are for to avoid.

So the situation is that I send a order details on saturday and now is wednesday and still no respond. On monday I contact Ban about a problem and he told that he will remind a worker for my order and nothing from since then.

Pity they are cultural and want to help when they are online, but they are not online for long periods of time.
Also their website is falling apart it even do not allow me to log in, then when I try to reset my password nothing to happen, I am speechless…

Agree with Boaz, I do not even have an account at Kaidomain, orders are automatically sent to my Paypal address and it usually arrives quick and well packed.

I do think that it is a small business, so keeping up with multiple personal contacts with customers like you demand may be a challenge. For such a business it helps if contacts with customers can be kept to a minimum and Kaidomain AFAIC succeeds in that at the moment by generally having the things that are listed in stock, shipping them fast and packing them well. Having Ban in the forum here to answer questions and even regularly rewarding requests from BLF-members is a bonus.

Just wanted to feed this back to our community: 1 out of 2 shipments arrived last week. I am amazed how well it was packaged, how much attention to detail was in the packaging.

I have ordered from so many shops and never have I seen a plastic container for MCPCBs before. Normally it comes in an anti-static bag and some wrap around, the plastic container is a nice touch. So is the cleaning cloth!
Even though it was the main shipping season the first item came in quickly.

Hoping to see more deals soon!

I was also in touch with Abby via Skype and she was available within minutes – so my customer experience was also great. (had to cancel an order and place a new one).

ps: I bought the Nichia 219C 4000K triple and they are already living inside a S2+ with a FET driver by wight! approx. 6.25A at the tail on 28AWG (I used smaller wires to limit current). Nice warm tint with high CRI and light is quite usable with these amps.

has anybody ordered the KD Nichia 219c triple and not (yet) received it? Are there any potential issues at customs/cargo atm? Ordered on day 1 of the deal and it has been 35+ days without anything yet :/

Hi friend

Please PM me your order number or you can send an email to sales@kaidomain.com for further assistance.

I think there is peak season for the package delivery and the weather condition is not good for some location.

It may cause some package are delayed.

I am sorry for any inconvenience cause to you.

Mine didn’t come in a triple box! Shocked

Mine were just wrapped in plastic baggie/bubble-wrap. Fortunately, they were note damaged so no problem! Grad

(I had ordered a couple of the XP-L HI and the XP-G2 triple combo boards ages ago…)

Hi Ban, pretty cool that you are the first seller of the XHP50.2 .

I think it is very critical to get the description right. The Cree datasheet says the maximum bin for 3000K XHP50.2 leds is J2, yet the 7C led on KD is J4. The reel picture on your site suggests J4 as well. I’m puzzled.

..and now within 20 minutes after my above post the listing for the 7C led has disappeared from the KD site, and 10 minutes later you edited your above post and removed the link to it.

What is going on? I did order one of those 7C leds so of course I’m a bit curious Wink

Hi Ban,
Thanks for clarifying Thumbs Up
It is just that I wondered about the specific bin, but I’m interested in buying it whatever bin it is. So if it is ok with you, I choose not to cancel the order Smile

Hi djozz

Yes.

This is a serious problem to KD. But i can sure that this is 100% genuine CREE LED.

I want to make sure we get the right bin , tint from our distributor.

Thanks for your understanding.

…PROBLEM…

I just ordered and payed for an XHP50.2 5A tint, thinking it is high CRI like the description says.
But it is coded “B” which means 70+ CRI.
Now i want to cancel my order.
Sorry…

…SOLVED (i think).
cancelled via email.

I finally order it, pay, and now waiting two days with no answer, so Ban, why your website is not working as it should, I’d like to order try web interface like on all other sites, it is just easier instead I chase your support for orders and packing…

I will PM you about this order, and I like if you can to fix that bugs in website.

Any chance of getting some 80+ or better yet 90+ CRI xhp50.2?

I think I am going to get one of the 4000k versions but would love a high CRI option for next time.

I hope this is an okay place to post this Blushing

Does anyone know if the carlco 3 up optic can be used with a KD triple board? I inadvertantly destroyed the optic & emitters on the KD Nichia 219c x3 board Facepalm on one of my builds.

I’m hoping to be able to reuse the salvaged board on another project. I happen to be ordering from a US vendor & can use the quick shipping to finish my project sooner(& hence only those carlco optic are available otherwise I’d definitely just buy a replacement optic from KD.) Thanks!
