[eBay] XML bike light for $21, shipped

First a word of caution: when I think "bike", I think "motorcycle", not bicycle. I know next to nothing about bike lights, other than that DX sells a ton and that they tend to be a bit expensive. This may very well be too good to be true. I don't know. Proceed at your own risk.

With that out of the way, I just saw a XM-L bike light on eBay for $21 shipped (with accessories and batteries). This one looks a lot like the one DX is selling for twice that. And from the looks of it, it seems to be a pretty popular item.

Personally, I have no use for one so I won't be buying it but I thought I'd pass this on. Smile

Edit: First auction over. Updated link. Now $21.50.

How the heck do that many qualified buyers find out about an XM-L bike light and make that many sales in that amount of time?! Surprised

I remember when it became popular to sell items that don't exist and then run. One guy was able to rake in $1 mil in a few weeks without delivering a single product. Of course, you have to get it done in that short of a time span because you need to avoid negative feedback to keep the buyers coming.

That's true, and I see it often. Some Chinese sellers do their work OK, they get a lot of positive feedback for a year or two, and then they just stop sending items and then disappear!

  In this case, the seller didn't wait to have thousands of positive feedback, he just did it.
