Ya eas, they are a bit behind the curve, I ordered two with cell and two without and it was all messed up but today they did ship the two without the cells.
They messaged me about the 2 cells and lights, asked me what I wanted to do, tried to make a deal but no good so canceled for refund no problems.

Edit: They did make an offer of another light, a for real $15.99 light, looked like the one on TV that the guy has the truck run over in the mud..? No thanks,
Sorry about that to personal question eas..!
Never thought posting this light deal would end up like this 100+ posts, probably keep my finds to myself in the future to save everyone the headaches, sorry.

Don’t worry T18. There are many here who enjoy good deals you and other BLF members shared. Internet shopping is full of unknowns especially clearance sales.

cool i'll see you when you get there

And now Banggood says mine has shipped. I guess we’ll see when the tracking code actually shows the carrier has it in hand.

Finally, mine shows shipped, but I have no confidence in that at this point.

Mine says drop shipped. So that means it comes straight from the supplier?

Mine shipped Sep/23 but I don’t think included the ‘gift’ 18650 (gift in Swedish can mean both poison/venom and married)

In German language the word "Gift" is always and only used for poison/venom. Wink

Unbelievable! Delivery within the week from BG – as long as it’s a dodgy product. Clamp meter ordered four weeks ago only just made it to Sydney. 8×30Q ordered in August, hasn’t updated since leaving China 4th Sept. Broken light that can self destruct at any moment – Express Delivery!

Be careful with the B-word! Wink
Otherwise IATA might blacklist the Cometa for carry-on luggage soon. Silly
(now it all makes sense why they call it “Cometa”)

I ordered the one with 26650 battery in 3B+those freebie 18650’s. On 19.9 it said backorder but on 25.9 it updated to shipped! I got an tracking number also. Fingers crossed..

Order w/o cells is ostensibly shipped, got a tracking#.

Order w/ the vapes is still “back-ordered”.

Should be interesting to watch this unfold. Big Smile

I remember reading about the Cometa debacle not long after I joined BLF… was it a milk jug that fixed the shorting issue??

Anyway, I just ordered 2 units… and a gallon of milk.

click bait. Lights with extra’s don’t ship out but the “bare” lights still get sold with all the commotion going on around here.

My 1A tint says shipped Sep 26.

Arguably, Jaxman Z1 became CPFItalia Cometa 2016.
No, I do not want to argue.

Some of the Cometa had problems fairly easy to solve; maybe these too.

Here CPF member KeepingItLight entry #9 explains 3 potential problems so well, it almost fixes them for you.

Yup. The freebie 26650 is shipped in the light in a small plastic bag, no 18650 gift Sad

Looks like they fixed at least one problem

Love the 3B, the 1A is HARSH

The thick oring on the bottom came in the 3B. Couldn’t tighten the tailcap enough to get a circuit so had to use one of the spares, top.

The threads were freshly greased so guessing the original oring had deteriorated. Took the bezel off and dropped the lens! Small chip. The bezel oring was cactus so will replace that later. Now to watch vids and read up on the problems and fixes to see if they sorted everything. Any quick tops on how to get the top off?

But yes, three days!

I know, just playin

Edit: Between office and home one of the switches has gone belly up. Once I tighten the tail cap, the light is always on, the button light doesn’t work and modes change via percussion, no reaction to button press. Swap tail caps from my 2nd light and it’s all good.

Reply just now from Linda:

I said I’ll wait. Its not like I urgently need another flashlight, but the withdrawal symptoms may be a problem.

I wonder if I ever get my flashlights. I ordered one with battery on Sep 22 2018 it’s still back order.

Yesterday I made an order for one without the battery, later that day I got an e-mail from Banggood CS from “Kaka” requesting additional $17.23 in shipping fee, I promptly e-mailed back asking why suddenly the shipping is so expensive. I never got a reply but I just got the same e-mail as yesterday.
