WALLBUYS, extremely pleased with my order.

Just received my first Wallbuys order from the 50% off Christmas sale. Two Solarstorm Raging 5x X-ML, excellent machining, great output, very usable high/medium/low. More flood than SkyRay King, a little less throw, more ceiling bounce. Pretty sure I like this better than the SRK.

The lights came packaged in a cardboard box with foam padding, neither box was crushed. Both were in the Dragon box with lanyard and extra o-ring. Over the last 2 weeks I have received packages from Manafont, Keygos, International Outdoor, Fasttech, Solarforce, Ebay, and Amazon. All of those packages came in envelopes with bubble wrap, most didn’t have inner boxes and most of the ones that did come in flashlight boxes were crushed, the only one not crushed was from Fasttech. Wallbuys is the only vendor that shipped in an outside box. The ones shipped in envelopes also came undamaged but the outer box is extra protection and my pretty Dragon boxes were undamaged.

Worth the wait for the great prices received!!!!!! Can’t wait for my next order, but that’s part of the fun. By the way, I didn’t even check my tracking numbers once.

Ordered the end of December and still waiting.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Welcome Socal89!  I received my first Wallbuys order and was happy. Interesting packaging - no box, just wrapped up in bubble wrap, then shipping paper, then packaging tape all over. All arrived fine. My second order will be delivered Monday (they attempted delivery to my work today - closed). My third order shipped out next day.

Thanks Garry, yeah that’s how mine was packaged too. But the contents were in their original packaging. I’m going to check their site again, been eying that fenix E11.

I received my NY’s sale order Friday last week. Very pleased!
No complaints on shipping time or anything! Shipping time is what I would consider fast.
Thanks Wallbuys!

Do you bike lights work ok?

I received 2, both with dead battery packs (not working not charging).

Here is a video i put together for Wallbuys (sorry for the slow server).

I have contacted Wallbuys for replacements but i think they are trying to avoid the issue.

The other six lights i received (actually seven including a skyray 818 i sneaked to a friends order) came in good condition.

Received the last of my orders today. Everything looks legit, chargers, batteries, even the Trustfire TR-3T6’s I ordered were genuine with real TF drivers. Got a bunch of great lights I would have never really considered buying at their normal prices. Not the fastest or smoothest of sites, but the prices were great, and so were the goods in the end.

Thanks Wallbuys!

Hey, guys, I just received my first torch, from the Jan. 10 madness sale, this:

55891$18.28SMALL SUN ZY-T13 CREE XM-L T6 LED 1200LM 5 Modes high power Flashlight(2×18650) Black

So very cool light. On and off on the Tail, and a mode switch just below the head. Always starts on high, which is nice for me, and that mode switch is very cool. Way, bright, this one is most definitely a thrower. They had one left for 18.28 and I snagged it. I have bought crappy lights on Ebay, but this is a keeper. I have read that a lot of members love this light, now I know why. Some lights can’t take the Panasonic 3100s, but I could put them in this. Well, pleased, now just waiting for the other torches, of which one is this:

66431$77.07UltraFire T90 CREE 2300LM 5 Mode Waterproof LED Flashlight Black (3× 18650 or 3× 26650)

Just going to add this. Read some posts about too short batteries not fitting in this light. This light is designed for protected batteries, that are longer than unprotected batteries. The Panasonics are quite long, and a bit wider, so they work well in this torch.

Did you buy the bike/headlamp lights that came with a 4 cell 18650 battery pack that were $13.xx? I got 3 and they all work great.

seems worthy yo buy, how about the quality, is it durable?

Excellent quality, very durable, these are one of my favorite lights now especially at the price paid. I actually put up a WTB add in the buy and sell forum to try and get a couple more.

When did you order, if Christmas sale, wait another week. If new years sale, wait another 2 weeks.

Same here. Battery pack from silver/black bike light was dead on arrival. One pair of cells measured only 1.5V and the other 3.5V. I can’t charge the pack over the main port. The pack does show voltage of 5V, but does not allow any flow to or from it. Even after separately charging both pairs of cells there is no current flow out of the pack. Cells must come from an very old stock and when new they were 1800mAh at most.

The result is unusable bicycle light. |( I think we’ll see more to come from the same source…..

Wallbuys will stop online purchase for all goods in 31 JAN 2013, and we will start reservation service in Feb 2013, as we know the discount up to 70% off. But this time, this reservation service is easy, I test it just now ,choose a product and click “schedule”,then it will go to the reservation page (there will be a Current price ,and this price will be lower if many people buy the same items) . You should fill in email address and choose the Quantity you want to buy, then system will send a activation code to you, then put this activation code in blank. Finally send reservation request.

 


Wow, wait, have you decided to make another sale?!

Packed well (including grease in zip-loc) and, considering the holidays and the traffic that 50% sale garnered, satisfied with delivery speed… getting ready for February’s “reservation” sale!

My order was not packed so well! :~ Delivery was fast though. 4 lights have either scratches or are gouged. Working with Cherry on it by email, hopefully will be resolved in a reasonable manner. Flat Stare

Experience from ordering from China, not to mention the sheer number of orders they received. I have had plenty of orders from China take over a month from standard purchases. Wallbuys was overwhelmed with orders because of the low prices, especially the first sale.

Here it is vēer: Wallbuys “70% off”

Very unclear as to the exact mechanics/protocol to follow… Old-Lumens makes some valid points in his post in the thread

What color are yours?
Mine are both silver/gray.

WARNING-DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHECK VOLTAGE OF BATTERY PACK.
After reading the comments I attempted to check the voltage of my battery packs, I slipped and I shorted out the battery pack, the same pack I have already used for over an hour. Not going to check the other two. All it takes is a split second to short out the pack. The only thing damaged should be the PCM which should be an easy fix. Someone put up a link for PCMs on Fasttech a while back but can’t seem to find them now. Would these battery packs be in series or parallel?

Double checked my lights and they all work except for the one I damaged. Light still works with the other battery packs.

The three I have are with the natural/silver bezel.
