I got my tracking #, doesn’t work yet (but that’s not unexpected).

Question – is there a way to modify/reprogram the driver? I would like to have a very low moonlight mode, 1 lumen or less of possible. If I could have that in addition to the turbo mode, I would definitely buy another!

You can also enter it into the USPS tracker if your shipping address is in the US.

Yeah, mine doesn’t work either. I’d expect it to show the initial tracking confirmation by now normally.

The shipper got too many packages in their warehouse. So tracking numbers need to wait 2-3 business days to show up online. Some GB orders shipped out, some still under testing and packing.

GB orders are the last batch, which is very strict with batteris, only Sanyo GA 18650s fit best. That’s why we recommend guys to order with 4-pack Sanyo GA 18650s.

Next batch of Haikelite can work with protection 18650s.

Here’s the link to my tracking number still doesn’t show after 6 days. I don’t care if someone can see where my flashlight is, you’re not gonna steal it from a military post office. Smile

Normally I’d expect to see “carrier accepted shipping information” by now. As it is, mine will not arrive by Christmas as it takes longer than the time left to get things here from China.

Yeah, I’ll give it another week, then it’s going to Paypal for dispute.

Their original statement said, “Shipping time: Before 27th”. Since this was in November, they should have shipped by the 27th of November, but they did not. Why do so many Chinese companies not understand the concept of expectation management? You under-promise and over-deliver, but it seems culturally ingrained that you over-promise and under-deliver.

Eh, they promised by 27 Nov, I got a tracking # which is supposed to mean it was taken to the post office on 1 Dec.

Again, expectation management. No communication, over-promising, etc. I am saying that if the tracking number still does not work by next Wednesday, I’m getting my money back. It’s Haikelite’s responsibility to communicate with their customers, not for us to hound them for answers. JIT would mean that it was JIT for 1 Dec, but they didn’t drop it off then. Ive seen FT, BG, and GB take 3-4 days for the tracking number to start updating, but never has it taken this long for even a “Shipping information received”.

If there’s an update by either Haikelite or the tracking number I’ll be patient and wait, but if there’s nothing at all I will file for a full refund from Paypal.

I’m more upset for you T18! I supposedly got a legit tracking number, 17track says yours doesn’t work.

Just so all’s clear with everyone, I’m not expecting to have the light in 1 week, just an update. Any update, even saying, “CHINA, Acceptance” and I’ll wait.

Have no connection to this company. So, Haikelite heavily discounted with some customization available on the flashlight, a nice battery option
and now the sky is now falling for shipping 4-5 days late!

This is reasonable to you?

Have you purchased many products from China?

Apparently not, and while I agree they could communicate better, how about showing some patience and maturity by being a bigger person.
They are a new business.
Understanding the distance involved, language barriers, cultural nuisances and business issues can prove problematic.
And I am sure attacking the Chinese culture is not a wise path.
Chill out!!!

Boro, no. I ask for a simple update, not this from fellow BLF members.

If it’s any consolation, my tracking number finally showed acceptance in China yesterday. I’ve had tracking numbers from bg, gb, ft and others that never updated and yet was delivered without issue, so I typically don’t start worrying until close to 30 days after a shipping notification.

Well, I am willing to admit maybe I am a dummy. But hey, I’m excited about a near 10K lumen light, and I just want to be thrown a bone of info once in a while! Smile

I’ll sit by and wait.

Sure, I got a similar mail. Shipping company is different (ems). But it started to show some activity in China couple of days ago. Note that sites like 17track always lag behind and the site of the company itself is usually bit better.

I order and don’t think about a package for at least 30 days. Start asking questions at around 45 days. Some tracking numbers never work but the package arrives.

I received an almost exact tracking # except mine ends in 38—it says shipped by DHL post—I PMd Alva Monday—he asured me the numbers will track late this week—I can’t find a shipping company that says this is a legit number
Anyone know the time limit to file a claim with paypal
