@ Anyone with Free Shipping to USA

What tracking site do you use to track a shipment w/ free shipping from Neal to the USA.

I can’t get ‘Package Radar’ or ‘17Track’ (my go to’s) to work.

Try that site, though my tracking number provided from Neal does work on 17track.

Try https://postal.ninja – mine took a while to pop up from the “sent” email to the first item appearing.

Best thing about that site is that if you make an account, you can have a bunch of packages in there and it’ll refresh the status every 11 or 12 hours.

Don’t know about about USA, but have some experience about the same issue and NL.
I use 17Track and that works fine for me. It even follows parcels through the dungeons of PostNL.
17Track is absolutely NOT fast. Things can be quiet for almost a week before any progress is visible.
The same goes for the time that goes by before the parcel becomes visible in the system.
I wonder if the updates are fed in batches into the system, and not real-time per parcel. But I trust it.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Thanks hoabegrubn, the link worked. It started when it hit the USA yesterday. It left New Jersey today headed south toward Alabama. Beer

Strange, but the same number Neal provided is not even recognized by 17Track. Beats me why yours would work & mine not work?? Facepalm

But at least I know it is getting closer. Wink .. Thumbs Up

@ oweban …. Thanks my friend, Postal Ninja at least recognized the number but gave no information besides when it was actually picked up.

@ Henk4U2 …. Thank you, but 17Track would not even recognize the number. Strange, because it will recognize hoabegrubn’s number from Neal.

I think this is the first time 17Track has not worked for me. Crying .. Wink .. Smile

yea i have no clue why yours doesn’t work with 17Track. But at least with the DHL site it gives you the more important details – the USPS tracking number to follow up on when it gets handed off between DHL and USPS

It gave me many choices… but DHL or DHL eCommerce was not one of them. I looked three times in fact. Facepalm

17Track does not “recognize” the number & no choices of any DHL. I find it all very strange this go around. Big Smile

But, as was said above; at least I know it is getting closer. . Thumbs Up

Today I received the version 7A. I’ve had a few FW3A but this one has the worst switch – it is quieter, too soft and can not be press it on the edge Facepalm

Disassemble and reassemble the switch completely. Try swapping the direction of the plastic nubbin.

I’m still waiting to hear back from Neal on the other code not working for the GB discount, and the one that was sent with wrong tint. (sent him a message vial email last week.

I could not do any tail cap amp draws due to not being able to turn the light on. I don’t think anyone has posted amp draws.

I took current measurements, but not on FET-max. I had to press down on the inner tube to get it to make good contact, then bridge it to the outer tube or battery to trigger a button press.

I know I had much better luck over PM. I had sent two emails and then ended up sending a PM anyway with an apology for so many messages. Had a response the next day.

My FW3A just arrived! This. Thing. Is. AMAZING!!! Andúril is insanely cool. Just to think that the first BLF custom lights years ago had the sole purpose of eliminating blinky modes… and now one of the main attractions of Andúril is its incredibly entertaining plethora of (well hidden) blinky modes. I love it. Thanks so much to everyone for sticking with this project with all of its ups and downs. We and TLF have something to be truly proud of!
