I have ordered from both on several occasions. Always ended up with what I order fine. Shipping can be slow

Same for me. No problems from either one.

Probably both ok as long as you don’t have a problem with the order.

They are both reliable. Kaidomain is a tad slower on average, but they have better packaging IMO.

KD handling time and order status indication is awfull. They can leave fake tracking number and after two month when you contact them they say “all fine just shipped here is right tracking”.
Fasttech have better stuff, you always can check order status, if there is any item that delays you shippment you can cancel or devide it on their website directly, this cool feature will save you lots of time and nerves.

KD is a poor shipper. I contact BanL after I place an order and everything works out. They have great stuff that you can’t find anywhere else.

FT had the best order /shipping/returns service IMHO of any seller because the return address was in the USA.

FT might have issues with you if you submit a PayPal claim and might not ship your next order.

I’ve been happy with both vendors.
About 4 years ago Fastech was the best vendor that anyone had ever seen .They put many U.S. vendors to shame. After a couple years of excellence they suddenly hic-upped and complaints started to mount . I think they are back to a normal chinese vendor status. I just completed an order with them that included having to deal with their customer service which went thru very smoothly .

My lights were Trustfire A8, Kdiy KF8, and a Kdlitker E6.

A little Search would have answered your question. Both have been sellers for many years, and both have large dedicated threads on the forum.

Just checked my latest order from Fastech on Dec-5, 2017 and still not here.  Waiting 3-4-5 months or more is very common for me in Canada if I order from them,  but unless I need something right away I always use their free shipping.

Don’t think I ever got anything from KD, but did lots from FT, rarely if ever any problems.

As mentioned, any returns are to the US, so no big-bux costs shipping overseas only to have it disappear into the æther and not have your refund go through. You ship it via usps, get your receipt, snap a pic and send it to FT, and you get immediate credit for the shipping cost. Really really painless.

Everything is tracked, and if over whatever amount, always free (tracked) shipping.

The BLF discount works for almost everything flashlight-related, I think, so factor that into prices.

KD – I have a negative experience with it. Poor communication. Ordered p60 drop in – driver was faulty. Got in touch with them, they did promise to send another one, which never arrived.
FT – more orders here, few tickets solved quickly and reasonably. The only negative impression left after last year father’s day: I had a phone in my basket with a 10% discount on it. Unfortunately I was disturbed by guests and didn’t pay straight away. The next day price went to normal. I did ask for discount – reply was negative. Of course it is my fault, but ….. (Got the same phone later from different vendor even cheaper.)

What is the BLF discount coupon for FT?

Better to use “KUNGHEI” for 10% off during CNY.
15% off if your order is above 150

The code only works on items that are currently NOT on sale.

Honestly, your results will largely depend on your belief system, this is something enlightened people knows.

Done lots of small orders from FastTech and a few from Kaidomain. Despite what people says here Kaidomain's service has always been excellent to me. A few quirks with FastTech, but overall everything nice.

FastTech seems to be The Vaper's Paradise. Kaidomain is very focused in flashlight related stuff, with unique and interesting products which may end up costing less than expected due to shipping policies.

Found some interesting rare battery offers recently at Kaidomain, I'll have to order some. 

 

Cheers Party

Got my Kaidomain order in today. It took exactly 3 weeks. I ordered it on 2/1/18 and I received it on 2/22/18. The flashlight is a Kdiy KF8, the light was in a small cardboard box the size of toothpaste tube box, all inside a bubble wrap yellow mailing envelope. The light box was smushed a tad. The light was in perfect condition. There was a free lenses wipe included from Kaidomain.
Great service from Kaidomain all around, for any who care.
