Hey, ML-102 charger just arrived to FT. I love this one and always keep in my bag. I already have 18650 light and a couple of spare batteries in my bag so it automatically makes an emergency charger for my iPhone as well.

I asked them to offer ML-102 :bigsmile:
If you are looking for something just send a request on their site and a week later FastTech has it cheaper!

This is gadget heaven! Love

What? I bought the only one I could find on feeBay for $3.
They have a 4 pack for $1.70!
I wonder what kind of current these will handle?

In the last weeks Chinese post is slow and just sometimes trackable. I check like 10 packets a day and only 2 appear…

Made some product requests and discovered the tr-3t6 for 31$, Wow.

Wow, my next order will be through you guys.  Hopefully by then you can add some empty P60 pills and maybe some FUJIK thermal compound? Smile  The prices, selection, and product descriptions are insane!  My order will include a lot of 7135-based drivers.

I was going to order one just to see what MCU it comes with.  Highly doubt it's an ATtiny13 Sad

Too closely priced against the Fujifilm 2300. I mean, 15cents… between unknown 2100mAh vs real deal 2300mAh.

EDIT: I better put the current price – in case FT changes them again. The Fuji is priced $8.34 currently vs $8.19 for Enelong.

Hello Fast Tech !

Any chance of stocking some Sanyo UR16650ZT 2100mAh Li-ion Battery or something of comparable quality?

I know that many here could use them including myself. :bigsmile:

Great work on the shipping front. From now on will check your site first, so if you have it, I’ll buy from you. Please sell 3- mode 3amp 3-18V buck driver in 17mm size.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

My first order arrived today (but actually it’s the second I placed). Only 10 days to Germany. Absolute record for me (including Ebay orders). If you keep this speed (I used tracked mail because of the small difference) you are hitting DX and others right in their weakest spot, so you’ll get a lot of orders soon….

BUT
I have a couple problems with the items I ordered ( a fire starter-wrong sku sent- and a jet lighter missing part). I just sent the message with pics and info, let’s see how it works. I understand that everyone, specially new companies, might need some time to polish things up. So let’s see if the customer service is as good as the shipping (and, again, fast service and good customer service are probably the two main worries for most customers and the biggest disappointments we get with your competitors).

I’ll post my experience with CS from Fasttech to keep everyone informed. Gentlemen, :hat:

I just tried the 10% off coupon code GOTECH and it has stopped working for me….

I guess that was our last chance to get some smoking deals!

Merry Christmas. :santa:

Still great deals at their "current" regular prices though!  I do predict we'll see these rise in the future.

Yup, still great indeed.

Does anyone know how DX started out? Did they raise their prices once they gained popularity?

I am a little confused about XML tints and catalog numbers.

The T5 is listed as "T5-5C1 / 4000K" whereas the T4 is listed as "T4-7C / 5000K"

Shouldn't the tint on T5 = 5000K and T4 = 4000K?  In other words, the T5 should be " "T5-5C1 / 5000K", and T4 should be "T4-7C / 4000K"

It looks like those numbers are reversed.  Great prices on these.  I want to order but would like to get some confirmation I will receive the correct tint.

I believe a 7C should be between 3000k & 3500k.  I could be wrong and expect to be corrected if I am.  A 5C bin should be between 4000k & 4500k

Not sure Hill, although if you're thinking a T5 always equates to a 5000k, and same for the T4, that's not right.  The bin doesn't really mean anything in regards to tint (although lower tints tend to be lower bins).

Anyway, I just noticed FastTech added new drivers such as the LD-29.  Check the new arrivals page for Dec. 20th!  I also see P60 driver rings?  Handy for those 20mm to 17mm adaptations (I think).

So 7C = ~3000K, 5C1 = ~4000K and 3C = ~5000K

Thanks Gary.  I also have that driver from Intl-outdoor.com.  Nice driver that can handle 1 - 2 cells.

 

@ JohnnyMac and M3TAL_L0RD, thanks for the info.  It is very helpful.

Thanks again everyone for your comments and suggestions.

We have taken notes of several requests made here such as batteries and hobby chargers. I’m not going to make a list here but we have definitely got them on our lists.

The GOTECH coupon was scheduled to expire on 12/15/2012 though it was allow a little overtime. We’re preparing a BLF exclusive coupon and that should be ready short after Christmas.

Just a quick update on shipping: as demonstrated by action, FastTech is highly committed in shipping times. However, we have noticed massive USPS delays for orders shipped after Dec 12, 2012. This is obviously caused by the Christmas season.

Delays are happening virtually at all points along the delivery pipeline. We’ve seen orders stuck in the California sorting center since Dec 14, 2012, orders waiting for flights for a week, and even orders sitting in the “arrival at unit” state (delivery post office) for almost a week.

If your order is affected, we feel the same frustration you do and we are very sorry about it. FastTech works very hard to get orders out of its doors. Once they are out, there is really not much we can do. But if your order looks “stuck” according to online tracking, please let us know and we’ll try our best to find out its current status.

Thanks again everyone for your orders and understanding!
