Can’t that be said about everything, ever? “I get my lights go dark because I forget to charge the batteries all the time…LOL… Life goes on.”, “I don’t live in a safe neighbourhood so I get mugged all the time… LOL… Life goes on.”, “I don’t even read PM’s… LOL… Life goes on.”.

Hi Old-Lumens.
I’ll take one red light.
If red n/a – I’ll take a blue.
I have about 10 Preons but always wanted to
check these out.
figure this is the cheapest way to do that.
thanks
Jim

That's right, now you're getting the idea.  Just because you have a mouthfull of sour grapes coz someone doesn't wanna buy or respond to you about your sale....LIFE GOES ON ...doesn't it?  This ain't the proper thread to cry and whine about someone refusing to respond to your sales query.   This is Old Lumens Group Buy Thread.

No, xelario doesn't need to get in the last dig, because if he does, it will go to the admin next. It doesn't belong here and I'm not going to listen to any more. The thread will be dead, if this continues.

No indication on the Four Sevens web site that their version is going out of production but it is currently listed as a $60 light. I personally prefer the price being discussed here a lot better. FastTech lists the Olights as sold out.

Good high output pen lights do not seem to stay in production long though. I note that the Olight offered here, which I have and want additional copies of, is going and the Fenix LD05, which I also have, is already long gone. I prefer the aesthetics, size and weight of the Olight to the Fenix. Do people have a difficulty with paying a premium price for a good AAA pen light?

Gee is that possibly an indication that I like unpopular lights? Maybe as I also have the TK50 and TK60 Fenix lights, both gone now. The world apparently considers D battery lights to be dinosaurs. For a medium output light like the TK50 and TK60 though I love the run time available from D batteries.

Ordered my red and blue ones. As total for two over the minimum required I am supposed to get a free tracking number rather than being charged.

Is it just me. Twice I've looked at the headline on this thread and my heart has fleetingly stopped.

GB IS NOW "discontinued"

UPDATE!  Do you remember when I went postal about dealers lying and everyone thought I was too extreme? 

Do you want to hear the latest?   Bella had sent me an e-mail giving the code and she said to start it "tomorrow". OK, so I get it after 01:00, so is that tomorrow?  So, I go ahead and try the code and it works fine. Well, OK! I post it.

So now I get an e-mail from Dora and it says this "Oh, I missed your former email this morning about the code posting

What I worried that is Olight notice our gb for the low price, and they won't deliver the rest stock to us
 
But it is said that the rest stock will be arrived at our warehouse tomorrow, let's wait and see!"

NOW, am I CRAZY or was the truth hidden from me to begin with?? Why not say Olight does not want the lights sold for the discounted price? Why wait Once Again, for the MAP Police!!!  Why??????

HUH?  and people were so upset when I told them these dealers were dishonest, deceitful people, (ALL of Them), and held information back from us. Why not state up front about this when I asked before hand, in the very first e-mail. "or will Olight come back on you because of MAP?"  I asked before and she didn't say a word till I posted the code "too soon"?

SO, some of you may not get your lights, if Olight did not send the stock and I am in the middle again. I should have known, I should have listened to myself, but I didn't. My apologies. These people just don't have any concern for anything except the dollar, no unless, like in some other countries, lying is something that is tradition and something to be proud of.

I ordered my brown one and got this confirmation.

“Thank you for your recent back order with GearBest.com.
What happens next
Once the item arrives in our warehouse at the end of the back order period, we will process your authorized payment. When this is complete, the item will be dispatched within 3-5 business days to the shipping address you provided using the shipping method you selected.”

I hope this doesn’t mean what it looks like it means.
I’ve never gotten that message before.
Plus Paypal says I’ve already paid?

My order was placed last night within less than an hour after OL posting the sale as open so hopefully I will get items which were in stock at GearBest. If I have difficulties they will have lost me as a customer. I have had minimal problems with my orders placed with FastTech and this is my first order with GearBest. If they mess up then they will be renamed GearWorst in my notebook. My order confirmation did not mention back ordered any where and said the following:

“Thank you for your recent order with GearBest.com

We are delighted to inform you that we have received your payment for order XXXXXX and will process your order immediately.

What happens next
Once we have carefully prepared and packaged your order, it will be dispatched to the shipping address you provided using the shipping method you selected.
If you have selected Expedited Shipping with a courier or Standard Shipping, then a tracking number will be provided so you can track and monitor your package online. There may be a slight delay before the tracking number becomes active or when the courier updates.”

I, too, ordered a blue one this morning and it was my first direct order from GearBest so I had to sign up to be able to log in.

They sent the order confirmation and a second email confirming payment, same as above. What does all this mean? They had some in stock and shipped those, but are having to wait for some to come from O-Light to fill the GB order? And I am wondering why O-Light would care about MAP on an item that is discontinued?

Hey OL, I just saw the update. If my order doesn’t go through, don’t worry about it. You shouldn’t be held accountable for the actions of dishonest sellers. As always, thanks for organizing this GB. Cheers.
