Whew. I'm really glad they didn't close up shop overnight. I just paid for a Trustfire TR-J12 and I'm looking forward to its April arrival.  Surprised

Apparently my order is getting delayed...  They went offline right after I ordered a UF980L, I paid them but the light is still in my shopping cart...  I hope this doesn't last too long.

 

Does it usually take 3-4 weeks for them to ship to the US?

I'm in Texas and it's taken 22, 10, 10, 13, 12 & 15 days for my 6 orders. Not that I track them or anything.  Laughing

It usually takes about 2 weeks but my last order was shipped a month ago and I still haven't received it.

Apparently a lot of other person are experiencing the same thing at the moment. My order was way after the Chinese New Year so I don't know why the sudden terrible shipping times.

Someone posted regarding not receiving their order for 39 days or something like that.

I've ordered a lot from China in the past but in the future I'll try to find it elsewhere before agreeing to such a long wait again.

I'm in TX also.  Last couple orders stayed in Honk Kong for 5-6 days before leaving .  Then arrived in New York, and again, 5-6 days before passing along to Texas....   So I've been averaging total transit times of @ 16 days.

The Hong Kong post seems to be slow atm. I ordered from Manafont 26 days ago, order got shipped the day after I placed it, but still no sign of it.

I'm also still waiting for some stuff that I bought from Hong Kong based sellers on Ebay, 35 days now since they got shipped.

Ugh, I cancelled my order in time to pay the $2.00 for registered mail. 


Funny story, if you request expedited shipping in the remarks section when choosing your shipment method  you can get your order in about 5 working days...  Costs around $25 bucks for a package about the same size and weight of a single UF980L.  Ask for quotes in the live customer support window.  I was really tempted.  But seeing as how I'm not getting my charger for atleast 3 weeks anyway I talked myself out of it.  Looks like its time for the waiting game!

I ordered a couple things last Sunday 3-18 and it was dispatched on Monday 3-19.  I'll let you guys know when they arrive.

My last order got to me in Australia in about 20 days but was stuck in Australia due to my mail being redirected to my new house as I forgot to up date my manafont adress, normal it's around 2 weeks the same for me ordering from the USA when paying for the postage. I brought a light from manafont last night I'll see how long this light takes to get here.

In Texas, I can usually count on about 3 weeks. My last order from them was over a month, but a lot of that was due to the package being held up in New York for about a week... Undecided

It's not just Manafont and DX lately.

Today I received a package from LighTake. HK Post stamp is 12 days later than dispatch notification. After that, 10 days of actual transit, which is fine.

Not to mention that the aspheric lens I got is total crap. Unusable, like the one before that I got from them.
