A bit of a play off of kolchak’s post.

I have the opposite experience. And read the length of the thread – I’m not the only one having issues. Yeah, Covid. but at least reply to emails that’ve been sent over the last 3 months?

I will be telling people to avoid Banggood from now on.

78 days and counting here. Last actual activity on the tracking number was from mid-June but Banggood still calls this “normal” due to COVID.

Not sure why so many people, websites, logistics and shipping providers still say covid may bring delays. all my recent orders (and I had a lot of them) were with me with an average wait time of about 2 weeks.
I even got a backpack from Wuhan, it was bought, paid, packaged, labeled and dispatched from their warehouse within 4 hours.

OP chose free/cheapest shipping? If so, this is par for that course.

Here is Banggood’s shipping information: https://www.banggood.com/Detail_hl70_at321

The longest shipping method (Ocean Shipping) is normally 25-40 days. BG’s COVID extension says it could be another 15-30 days longer so 70 [business?] days at the longest!

Using https://www.timeanddate.com/ for the math, OP’s order was placed on April 27th (93 days ago) which allows for 65 business days for shipping. Therefore, OP’s delivery is now 5-days shy of Banggood’s projected worst-case COVID deadline when assuming the 15-30 extra days are BUSINESS days and not calendar days!

If you adjust for the COVID extension as being 30 calendar days (instead of business days) by bumping back the shipping date to May 27th, that still means BG had 44 business days (63 calendar days) which is clearly beyond the expected worst-case of 40 business days for Ocean Shipping.

My lastest orders from Banggood were from local warehouse, so nothing like this. But my AliExpress orders from February and March only arrived this month. But one other order from AliExpress( Manker E02 II) from 9th july arrived today, pretty normal already!

I ordered an EC03 from banggood on July 20 and it was shipped out the same day.

I paid $2.78 for “Banggood Express” shipping which specifies a delivery within 10-15 days.

We’ll see! Anyone else had experience with the new Banggood Express?

I had a Kaidomain order arrive after 101 days, which was trumped today by an AliExpress order that took 128 days.
Somewhere there is a big pile of mail slowly getting sorted.
Incidentally, my last AliExpress order only took 17 days.

I can quite literally feel your pain…I have a banggood order placed on June 04, no word since it showed arrival in the USA On July 12. Has not had a new tracking number supplied, and the Chinese tracking number shows nothing since USA arrival. Fortunately that is not one of my extremely anticipated lights. It is an Astrolux EC01. But later I ordered an MF02, and then an MF04. I also ordered a MF01S with 4 Samsung 30Q batteries with added button top this week. It was ordered from Banggood US warehouse with 1 week shipping. Those 3 are eagerly anticipated. The MF02 was ordered July 20, and says it will ship before Aug 02, so it is still in China. The MF04 says shipped July 22, the same day ordered, but has shown nothing since, and that long throw beast is very eagerly wanted. Throw rated at 2416 meters…can’t wait to play with that light. Right now my longest thrower is 1003 meters for my Nitecore TM16GT. Both the MF02 and MF04 is rated higher. I have 3 of the FT03 sst40w and 1 FT03 XHP 50.2. I like throwers, but with a little spill, which is why the Acebeam W30 has no interest from me,,,relatively small spot and no spill at all? Nope, not for me.

Would love to have this beast, but that is a lot of cash for a flashlight.
