I cant wait any longer..............

I am currently waiting on an order from Solarforce.  I ordered on 3/20 and was hoping for the 2 week delivery with fingers crossed......... Laughing Now it is April 9th and i dont think that i have been this anxious for something flashlight related!!!  These are my first ever solarforce products.  Ordered 2 L2's the sand and the gray. Also two 16340's and one 18650.  While i was there i also purchased a black head and a flat bezel. 

 

PLEASE HELP ME WAIT MY TIME IN SOME MANNER>>>>>>>>>> LOL

The bezel will come with a little square of Stainless Steel. Don't throw that little square out; it is the tool you use to screw the new flush bezel in with.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

you have to train to buy from china.  buy some stuff from DX and everything else seems like it teleported it to you hands. Laughing

 

best not to think about it - hard as it seems. and surprising from SF,  but i bet 2-3 days  you'll have em and you getting good stuff too.

Not too much though, as it has been known to grow hair on your palms.

LOL train............. 

Bought some stuff from DX already and it was forever and a day but it was just for some aspherical lens for the 502b and heatsink compound so i could wait.  I Kinda like that aspherical in the 502b though.

Well, I am a newbie, and I have quickly found out that the waiting time is a B$@%$!.

However, I found a way to deal with it. Just order some more lights and stagger the ordering time. That way, you got something coming almost every week..

I know, you wanna thank me big time for that info..Undecided

Oh, one more thing you can do to pass the time away while you are waiting, scope out some DARK PLACES!!

I am running out of dark places in my area, or my lights have gotten so daggone bright, nothing ever seems dark anymore...

Yes, a constant flow will soothe the nerves.  Order something new every Monday, 1st thing, and call me in the morning.

I have shipments from ebay, MF, FP, BIC, Tomtop, all SNAILING their way from China.

So this is not a particular seller issue. This seem to be China Post problem, even their registered post (ending in CN) don't even get scanned (too busy?). Focalprice rep told me China Post is going through some huge peak.

And they're not lying. I have a split shipments from BIC, one item from HK warehouse and a couple others from CN, the HK one was actually shipped a couple of days later than CN but already arrived last week! Everything else from CN is nowhere to be seen.

The ebay orders are coming in with a reasonable time of 9-18 days. tomtopp sent me 5 sipik clones in 11 days if I remember correctly.  Hopefully the Solarforce L2's are going to be able to live up to my anxiousness.... Big Smile

 

Foy and others have definately got me wanting them and wanting them NOW!!!

I love both of them but the gray one is fantastic.  I think it even made my light brighter...... Wink Wink Wink
