Interesting store on AliExpress...
I never heard of these guys before but they have some pretty interesting product including items like the stainless multicolored astrolux models at rock-bottom prices.. might be worth checking out This is not an endorsement as I have not done business with them before I did order one item and will see how it goes .. I got a three week delivery time from China so oh well

link

They are also doing some house branding and relabeling as “ELFELAND”

I ordered that S41S head for $22.04 on 4/26/17 and tracking hasn’t changed from “preparing shipment” since 4/30/17.
We’ll see.

I’m pretty sure it’s Banggood flashlight department

Elfland brand is mainly sold on BG so I guess that’s there own rebranding of cheap lights.
Astrolux is known to be highly related to BG of course, so maybe it’s to reach Ali customers who don’t know BG

 That  NTH 30B holster is  good !!! I have one , purchased (Romania) from a Nitecore Retailer , the price was about the same.., I use it for Nitecore MH 20 , is fitting perfect for it , sturdy ,good plastic. In fact can be used for several flashlights with the head diameter up to 30-32 mm .I rest , the same inflated Lumens....

I purchased a couple Astrolux S41S heads from them recently.  They arrived well packaged and were accurately described.

Another (different) interesting AliExpress store, since this topic seems more or less on point:

Is anyone else getting email advertising from “AliExpress supplier xiangnong dai” featuring surprisingly cheap flashlights?
Typical exaggerated claims (ten thousand lumens??)

The links in the email don’t work, AliExpress doesn’t find that name when I search for it.

The first two are (1) a 3-emitter zoom, and (2) a tube light with a COB emitter in the sidewall.

The text from the email about those says:

That’s what I got in email. But there’s no clear identification of who’s selling it nor any working link.

Quick update on this seller. On 8/14/17 I ordered about $50 worth of flashlights and a flashlight holster, and paid a reasonable $1 or $2 for shipping. The order had a guaranteed 35 day delivery. I was sent a message saying the order was split, and given two tracking numbers. The $3 holster was received within a few weeks, however, the tracking number for the package with the flashlights showed that it was out for delivery to a location about 400 miles from me, then that there was an “alert” and the package would not be delivered at all. I contacted the seller, who gave me a new tracking number that shows the package is being “prepared for delivery” for the past week. As it’s now 40 days I have opened a dispute with Aliexpress.

It’s becoming a trend, sellers buy pre-assigned tracking numbers or something, and sometimes they mix them up, unfortunately.

As for a refund, I find AE process very well resolved.

I usually ask for a 2 to 4 week protection period extension at least once before entering a dispute for refund from a seller I buy regularly from, specially stores I trust more and just know it’s a mail delay. Every other order that didn’t arrive, or arrive super late, I got a refund. Just don’t accept the seller no-refund proposal or request to cancel the dispute unless it’s a very trusted seller, leave the dispute open until AE jumps in.

ya, what’s up with that? mine is still marked “back ordered” on banggood. Also, I was under the impression the price we got was better than they would be selling for.
