Thank you WALLBUYS!!

Just wanted to thank Karen and her team at Wallbuys for the Christmas sale!

I received the rest of the packages today!
Still waiting for 1 package without tracking number, that was below $15 (which was the limit for free tracking number)

Everything is in good shape.

I know other have had bad experience, but I had no problems with waiting!
It`s the usual thing with buying from China.. just once more: Thank you Wallbuys! 

 

Here a pic of the stuff I got today (without my LD01 set, that I received earlier, and the package that was sent without tracking number (Price was below free tracking))

Yeah…it`s definitely a nice box!
The light looks like my klarus P2A.

the thing about these nice boxes is that it give me a double feeling!
One side they are really nice.. but on the other side, I won`t use them, and feel sad to throw them away!
The sad thing about the Fenix H21 and Xeno E03 is that they come in a 1-time use package.. after opening you can`t really put them back anymore Wink

I ordered a JetBeam BA10,Xeno E03,Xeno G42 holster and 3 Xtar 18650 batteries.Everything is brand new, intact retail packaging.Order was packed very well.It took less than 3 weeks since placing the order until it was delivered – not bad at all, considering the New Year rush.My communication with Karen here was fast.Wallbuys need to upgrade their site and flashlight inventory.Personally speaking , I will buy from them again.

I’d a good experience with Walbuys too – got Nitecore T2 and T5. Unfortunately they’d no stock of the PA20, but I got a refund for that OK.

Just got my WallBuys order!  Everything in good shape exactly as expected!  The i4 charger is in fact a v2.  The floodlight is smaller than I expected. The Uniquefire uf-t20 is also smaller than I expected.  Tracking never updated from "Left Hong Kong" before delivery.  I just tracked it now and it shows "Arrival At Beckley, WV".  Hope this means my BLF A8 will show up before I see tracking updates!

Thanks WallBuys!

It was a wild ride, and we were worried about this new company coming out of nowhere and offering 50% off, but it was so tempting that I had to risk it for those Fenix lights.

I think it worked, our packages are coming in rather quickly I think, and we all know who WallBuys is now, and we have an engaging relationship with them.

One, two, and three years from now I will be fondly looking at my Fenix lights and know that I own them because of that bold and daring WallBuys promotion, already I have ordered other, more routine and regular priced items from them.

Right now I have a lot of trust in WallBuy, they stood up to a lot of our worry and concerns, but they kept working to deliver, and so far there are no complaints about products.

From what I can see, their regular pricing is pretty good anyway, I hope that they keep all their products legit, and authentic.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

I won't make any promises!  I have no idea when I'll get around to testing it out.  The a/c connector would need changed over as it's some sort of mini 220v plug (I've never seen one of these before).  I'd also like to take a peek inside and check everything out prior to firing it up. Oh, and I took a gamble and ordered two more floodlights in the last promo.

It's the latest version.  There were some issues with the first version which were improved.

I got a slip in my mailbox. Have to go get my package in the morning. I ordered a Small Sun TY-13 as well and I am excited to get it. I also got a Fenix headlamp, Jetbeam BA-10 and some items I can’t even remember. Will be a nice surprise in the morning.

I placed three separate orders so I hope they sent them all at once so I don’t have to make three trips to the post office.

The power plug is funny and the earth ground isn’t attached on lamp…watch out!
I tested it with some flying cable for about 20 hours, it worked flawlessly.
It’s not so bright because of the massive flood, but I like it especially for 6$.

There is a small 3×3W driver in it.
Before installing this I recommend to work over the earth issue(this is illegal here not sure which electrically security you have overseas) and if you plan to use it outside you have to seal it up manually with some silicone.

I am not sure what I should do with it, but it is good to have.

Yep, I expected the ground problem as read on a DX review on a similar light. Thanks for the feedback. How's the tint?

Still waiting on my Christmas order…. Sad

My name is indy, and I've been a flashaholic since 2004.

Tint is as advertised cool white, blueish.
The front glass is very heavy and thicker as I thought.
Led is hold in place with reflector(only mounted with 2 screws) and mounted with lots of thermal grease on the backside. Quite good heatsinking, so it doesn’t get really hot.

On the more expensive ones they sell here everything is sealed up better, the whole circuit is filled with lots of silicone water tight and every wire has additional shrinking tube when it goes trough holes. But you get what you pay for…

Do you have a residual current sensor in every home in the US?

Anyone ordered the RGB version?

I got my order accepted on the 10th, sent out on the 12th and it should be here in NY custom’s now on the 16th. Who knows how long it takes from now, it’s up to USPS to determine/customs. Last order I got came in during sandy and it took over a week to process; hopefully it’s going to be a bit quicker now.

I have no idea what you're talking about. 

The tint looked pretty neutral on the product page, but I expected the cool white due to the color temp listed.

I have read a bit on us based sites and it seems that you call it often: ground fault condition interrupter (GFCI) instead of residual current detector(RSD) which is the word they use in datasheets. So I can answer myself, it seems that you have these as well.
RSD wiki for the curious

It’s definitely more cool than on their picture.
If you need warmer tint there are similar 10W warm white LEDs on fasttech for 3.xx$ which are really nice, I have put one in a desk lamp prototype.
Wow I am still happy that we got these goods so cheap. And in the next days there are coming more Party

Does anybody here let them speak now or forever hold their peace, know when I am going to get my order? I’m starting to think I will get it maybe one day. But each day goes by and I just keep getting older. I keep thinking maybe I’ll get it today. Oh well. So much for wishful thinking. I may be an old man before it gets here.

Yea and don’t forget that they celebrated a 3 day holiday there, too. So out of the other 14 days of those 17 days they finally got it on its way. Talk about fast. Move over Speedy Gonzales. Arriba, Arriba! Andale! Now 17 days more to ship it here.
