Anyone ordered from the official ultrafire website?

Just wondering if anyone has ordered from them? http://ultrafire-shop.net/ they claim to be the official website they also claim that DX sells fake ultrafire's 

I tried placing 2 orders but have not herd anything back. On this website you add to the cart, fill out the shipping information and they are supposed to contact you back with payment information. Well they have not contacted me back so it looks like its not working.

Good luck with your order. I think I will wait until more people give positive feedback before I try ordering from them.

Does anyone else see the irony of a Chinese company complaining that other companies are making fake copies of their product? Big Smile

On another note, they seriously need help with the wording on their website. In other words, "dar engrish not so great."

Da*n, you'd think they were selling Fenix lights at that price.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Is it me or does the "official" site seem ultra-cheesy?

Well at this point its been 3 days since I ordered from them so...  even if they do reply I won't be placing the order. 

We import a few things from China and its pretty common for reputable websites to have very poor English but this takes the cake Smile

We are the manufacture of ULTRAFIRE product.We have trade mark of "UltraFire".
Now, many fake UltraFire product in the market happen.Please take caution.
All the UltraFire fake product is no quality assurance, please  stop to purchase.

Are Ultrafires actually copies of anything? Other than a metal tube with a switch at one end and a bulb at the other.

I agree they have many unique lights and I own a few... but let's start with the name alone. Ultrafire... hmmm... Does Surefire ring a bell? And Surefire started the whole P60 thing, which we are all aware of. I'm not a Surefire fanboy by any means, only bought one and didn't like it. But we have to admit, the China companies copied Surefire in many ways, even if they weren't exact clones.

Why screw with this? go to a trusted dealer and have it over.

Ok, they used a name with the same word at the end and maintained drop-in standard compatibility. I bought a music device recently who model ends in "Player" and uses a 3.5mm jack so I can use my existing headphones. Who is that supposed to be copying?

What trusted dealer? MF/DX/KD all sell cloned Ultrafires. These guys are claiming to be the sanctioned reseller. Still expensive, but at least you know it's genuine.

I think there are a lot of fake Ultrafire products out there, maybe even most of them. But at least the drop-ins I've gotten from Manafont sure seem real. The packaging is pretty decent and the circuit board even says Ultrafire on it. I think Manafont tries to get the real thing.

I know this thread is very old, but which site is actually the original ultrafire page?
I thought ultrafire.com, but know I am not sure ... it seems to be irony

https://www.ultrafire.com, I know this because I've bought their SK98 many times from FastTech and while a tad iffy it at least is consistent. Also bought an UltraFire AT-01 back in the day and soon I realized my screw-up, a model never to be found on their website.

You’ve got fake Ultrafire cells.
