Yes, they would have. The employees do not know one flashlight from another but the last time that happened they did not give anybody any grief.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most

No idea what Gearbest would have done, but the posts, pictures and follow up on what Gearbest CS puts it past “whining” in my book. There has been little trust in Gearbest here lately, for good reason…

Look dude, I would have taken pictures and a video independent of me posting here. Why? They normally require proofs with images and video. I had it taken and uploaded to my dropbox already. I am not here to post this information for people like you who have no need for it but to the other forum users that might find such information useful. This can help users to see 1) what is a real convoy. 2) what gearbest is still doing 3) what their CS is doing and ultimately 4) the outcome of it.

Trust me, only PMing csgearbest or paypal PROBABLY would have been faster. Maybe my thread helped; maybe it did not.

Feel free to block me if my ‘whining’ posts disturbs you.

Looks like I owe you an apology. I see now how my post could have been taken for a negative toward you, “Past Whining” was not that you were whining, but that you had gone past that and actually documented what was wrong, solicited additional advice here and informed others of your problem, with no drama. I actually was trying to see why another member had phrased your post as whining, not accusing them of anything, just trying to see why your post had solicited the word whining.

I am sincerely sorry if you took my post as negative and I will try to look at what I write from both directions. I was attempting to word that you had done what any GOOD customer would have done, warned others here of a possible continuing issue and give the company time to respond, which you also posted. To me, whining is just *not** what you did, you were past that to the POSITIVE side of the situation.

BLF is great for a lot of reasons, the lack of predominately overbearing personalities and negativity posters is high on my list of why I frequent here. I will call BS when I think it is there and do not put up with passive aggressive stuff like trolling, an simply did not see that what I had written could be taken as a negative toward you. I do not want to contribute unjustified negativity here. I will call things as I see them and question what I do not understand, but not be negative just to take it out on someone to make me feel better about myself. I made an honest mistake with this and this post is my apology.

All good ReManG. Accepted. I know there have been many new or 1 time posters that have used this forum to get their failed 1 time order from Gearbest sorted out. I believe that I am not one of them and besides these ‘whine’ posts do contribute a little to other threads. I also do find those 1 time posters annoying to be honest.
The advice asked was more of a mini poll to see what members would have done in my place.

I would have done less than you, but that is because I am a bit lazy… Lol

I hope they fix it right the first time, and you find a good use for the fake one…

Perhaps a low amp triple?

I got 5 Convoy light but only 1 from fasttech and that was a long ago.
The rest is directly from simon store at aliexpress

Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.
I am kind to everyone, but when someone is unkind to me, weak is not what you are going to remember about me.

This is the Convoy S2+ I got today from Simon. Ordered on 12th of December 2016 from his shop in Aliexpress. It seems the original/fake comparison does not apply anymore? Spring color matches the original authentic, but component layout doesn’t. Build quality on mine is excellent.

You’re seeing the difference between the 105C and 105D drivers. Both legit drivers, probably just depends on what Simon has around or new vs old stock. Same performance, the 105D just seems to have removed the configuration stars.

I think the important thing to look out for is the pill and retaining ring material, and the overall design and fit/finish.

Maukka,

Is yours the 3+5 mode driver? On low after about five seconds, does the light blink once?

Does Simon still have a code for BLF members? If so, anyone know what it is?

Thx
