  Another delivery today.  This time it was the L2T from Solarforce, and the optional pocket/belt clip.  It too, arrived safely, in perfect condition, just 10 days from having placed the order.  I'm surprised the shipping has been so fast....  so far.  Now if only these damn 18650's and the WP6 would show up, I'd be in business...

the manafont xml P60 drop-in showed up today...  FYI, to my surprise, the extra OP reflector threads on perfectly. 

It's a little strange the drop-in showed up before the batteries and charger, as they were both ordered from Manafont, but with 3 days in between. (the charger and batteries being ordered first)...     Hmmmm..........

I think that could be down to HK Post. They seem to pack in small items much quicker. I had a recent DX order of multiple items (torch, batteries, charger, reflectors) broken into separate packs, with everything but the reflectors (50mm) sent about 3 days earlier. The little parcel with the reflectors arrived one week before the other stuff.

ok....  TF flames and the WP6 showed up today.  Got the cells charging as I write this.  Can't wait to get some voltage readings, and try out the new lights.

For a recap of my first purchases...

1. Kaidomain

    KD C8 xml    Ordered: july 13       Shipped: july 15     Received: July 25th

     11-12 days total

 

2. Solarforce

    LT2 and optional pocket clip       Ordered: july 17  Shipped: july 17  Rcd: july 26

    9-10 days total

 

3.  Manafont

 a. 4 TF flames + WP6 charger     Ordered: july 13  Shipped: july 15  Rcd: Aug. 5

     23-24 days total

  b.  P60 xml drop-in + reflector   Ordered: july 18  shipped: july 19  Rcd: Aug. 3

     16-17 days total

   c. Microtech Scarab clone     Ordered: july 23   shipped: july 24  Rcd:  TBD

      ??????   days total

It's likely the scarab may never arrive... If opened by customs, it WILL be seized 100%.  With that said, only one of the four packages (the large box carrying the charger and batts) I've got in the last few weeks, have been opened for inspection.  I guess the next few days will tell.
