I already bought one of the v2.0 but I do agree when HKJ reviews it and shows that a lot of the fixes were fixed a lot more will buy.

If I see more requests for an extension and at the same time orders keep coming in, I don’t see any reason not to continue with this group buy.

Mine has never shipped yet Smile
So don’t worry. Tracking is probably just “reserved”.

I ordered mine an entire week ago and paid extra for express shipping and it hasn’t shipped yet. I am totally disappointed with gearbest and will probably never order from them again. Gearbest keeps making excuses, but hasn’t made it right (the only way to do that would be to ship it out immediately with overnight shipping).

Those of you who are having shipping problems – if it gets to the point where you are dissatisfied, go leave a review for them on resellerratings. I got in on this group buy partially due to their excellent rating there, and so far my experience has not reflected their current rating.

Well, Dora has called me funny when I have told I can wait while working with Chinese.
It happened. They will always sell to the highest bidder, whenever there is the opportunity.
And it has happened with us, because we do not generate so much profit.

Next thing is that the next stock order for gearbest because of high demand will probably but not always be of a lower quality…
So when you do receive your charger, please disassemble it to check the quality.

WTF?

selling lower quality in the second batch to the people who waited a little longer would not be good for their business…

It takes about 5 to 10 days for tracking to go active.

In my case, it was sent April 29, via Sweden Post.

Initially it goes ‘Cannot be found’ for about 3-4 days (this means it’s not uploaded yet in their computers)

Next 2 days, it was “Unable to Track” (uploaded, but still in the possession of the post office)

Just now I checked it here: http://www.17track.net/index_en.shtml

It has now suddenly gone active: 2014-05-04 15:00, Order dispatched
Transporting (7 days to go active)

Gentlemen, please understand whenever a package already has a tracking number, it is already out of the hands of the vendor. Postal workers are almost always late in uploading the status of the package in their computers.

Relax, my friend. Maybe Dora has not explained to you very well, but I assure you there is NO such thing as a ‘lower quality BT-C3100 charger’! Smile

Mine shipped the same day as yours tatasal, and it is still labeled “unable to track” and “not found”.

Also odd… did these all ship from The Netherlands?

The chargers in this group buy have the updated firmware V2.0, which will show in the LCD display “2.0” one or two seconds after start-up on the left side of the screen.

I’m sorry to hear that but believe me you will feel relieved when it suddenly goes active. I have that experience always regardless it was sent via Chinapost, Singpost, HK, Sweden and all the other postal services, regardless of vendor. I got so used to it that I tend to forget about the package in the first 5 to 7 days, although when I was new in this hobby part of the fun and suspense is the tracking of a package several times a day!

I find that very odd too…why Sweden, sometimes Malaysia or almost ‘name your country post’ but they are all coming from Shenzhen, China. Odd indeed.

I will ask Dora about it.

Haha…I don’t mind even if it comes from Timbuktu as long as its already active. How I wish it would be like the others in the USA which can supply almost real-time information, every step of the way.

Dont you gert sick of saying that same thing, again and again? … maybe you should go back and read the posts to which you are responding. Not one, all of them. Theres three…
But heres the main one… Ill even underline the pertinent bit.

Read that first line. Its also poor English, but the interpretation should be, “GEARBEST CANT guarantee the next order made by GEARBEST from their SUPPLIERS will be v2. They might be v1” If Dora is not referring to v.1 and v.2, then what quality difference is Dora referring too?

You know, like the XM-L2 Solarstorm SC’s , oh no, its just an XML have $2 back. A guarantee from a Chinese website is just a fortune cookie. Here, they have clearly said as much. Yes yes, that was not Gearbest, but they are all the same. Poor English, no interest in the hobby, its all about making a living. Its smart to understand that if youre going to buy from them.

Just for clarity, Dora is being upfront which is not to be sneezed at.

You then suggest there is no such thing as a lower quality version. To which I responded, yes there is, the v1. A version you seem to suggest no longer even exists. It does. And the implication here is that so many have been ordered, that GEARBEST can no longer guarantee that everyone will get v2. They might, they might not.
