It would be good if the feedback reaches the manufacturer.
They could add the fixup steps we’ve gotten used to doing — putting a proper flatended round rod on each shelf and hitting it with a hammer while the shelf sits on a flat anvil, and checking with a straightedge — amd it would probably not add much to their manufacturing cost while greatly improving their reviews from us end users.

Heck, they could even lap the shelf to remove the drilling grooves to make the heat sink contact work. That’d cost more, but be well worth it for customers.

Hey, design and QC/QA done by BLFers is slowly propagating to China. It’s progress.

are order histories still being periodically imported for those that register with the same email address as used with the old system?

I don’t think my order history was ever imported either. I got orders that go back probably 8 years or more with KD.

This is for BanL to know: close to a year ago I made an order through Old Kaidomain, the shipment contained batteries and it never left china because of improper shipping method. As things are know the only inexpensive and legally valid methods to ship batteries are China Post's ground shipping and TNT-PostNL for batteries.

BanL, I would suggest for you to add the above shipping options to Kaidomain (or at least TNT-PostNL for batteries when mandatory).

 

Cheers Party

I’ll admit, I’ve spent at least $300 with Kadiomain in the past month. I might be a flasaholic.

So I signed up with my old email address and my orders are not there. I don’t believe it is a problem but it would’ve been nice to see them.

Hello everyone,

I have an order made on the KD kaidomain since 31/10/2018 and it has not been sent. I do not know where the problem is, but 3 weeks are too much for sending the order.
A week ago I wrote a message in the section “Contact us”, but I still have no answer.
Every suggestion is welcomed. Smile

Thanks

Hi allegreto

You can PM me your order number.

I will help to follow it.

Thank you

Ban

I have had the same issue since 15/11/2018 and first email I was told that my item had been sent DHL (as requested and paid for in my order, paypal express payment) emailed 22/11 for tracking and got a reply that the boards were in production till the 23/11 and that the transport was too expensive for them to send that method ( I made suggestions for other shipping options) but since then no dispatch of the item and/or further communication, emailed again – no reply. Pmed Ban – No reply. Emailed today again, so will see if anybody replies.
EDIT: SORTED Smile

Hi BanL, for KDLITKER P6-TRI TRIPLE LUMINUS SST-20 1000 LUMENS 3V – 9V P60 DROP-IN (DIA. 26.5MM), are those different type of tint of LED using the same as those bare SST-20 LED in your store?

For example 5000k, is this P6-TRI has 3 SST-20 which are similar to the bare SST-20 5000k LED in your store? Or they are different spec?

cool i'll see you when you get there

I’m having some issues with kaidomain. My ordes has been “waiting for payment” almost 3 weeks. I have paypal receipt that have the exact same items listed as in kaidomain’s website.
I asked the about situation a week ago and they replied that they will look in to issue. Couple days ago I asked them for a refund. Is it just a backlog due the holidays?

I think this is not related to the SSD problem.

I am using the Samsung once. It is really good and reliable.

The computer is used for around 4 years. It is time to do the backup and re-arrange the files.

Too many dummy files Big Smile

Hi Ban,
I see you have added the 2700K 95CRI SST-20 Thumbs Up
Unfortunately the JC1 tint bin is above the Black Body Line Sad
Especially for high CRI leds the actual tint is really important for many of us, and most will like a tint under the BBL.
I ordered one to check it out anyway.

Just make it a one mode and drive it as hard as necessary to be right on the BBL. It probably shifts dramatically like all the rest

Wow! Do you like to make mountains out of molehills? High CRI emitters usually have little tint deviation, so no big deal.

Courtesy of maukka’s posts:

I don’t think it’s so simple to generalize every high CRI LED in respect to shift at different outputs.

Hello Ban,

Probably a JD3 could be a bit better, but for me, JC1 is also very good, and I will definitely try it.

Could you please source GD2 tint as well? Smile
