My brown one shipped too.
Good job Gearbest.
I was worried it was going to be a wait a month and cancel.

O-L et al,

I got a shipping notice from GB today with tracking # (I got 2 so tracking was included). The number is still not working, which is normal since I just got it.

Thanks O-L!

Jim

EDIT: Twas a red one and a blue one. Would’ve like a brown one also, but per PM with O-L, 3 was a bit :)…

Same color combo and notification received. I already have Black so only color I will be missing is the Brown. Per the tracking number they are shipping via Netherlands Post.

I’ve been thinking about that also? Which emitter are you thinking of? A Nichia?


Yep! I’m not sure what the board size is, so I’ll try reflowing a bare emitter (assuming I can crack open the glued head). Sad

Freeze over.

Glad to hear they are shipping out. Plenty of brown, so don't feel like you can't order one. Red was the only color that was very low.

The SinkPad 10mm copper DTP boards should work, might take a bit of attention. And the BLFTiny10 driver should also work, with again some attention on the battery contact.

In theory, an XP-L emitter on a 10mm SinkPad driven by a BLFTiny10 should make around 900 lumens from a single Efest IMR10440. This I know because that’s what’s in my Texas Poker, and it’s making 918 lumens with a larger reflector.

Thanks Dale! Though I think 100-odd lumens will be enough for me Wink

Also got a shipping notification. No tracking number bought so no tracking number given.
Invoice indeed says 39.95. I better hope they did not put this on the parcel, if they did I’m screwed. I will be charged tax and administration fee. Should be easy to get tax back when I show them my paypal transaction, but admin fees (16$) aren’t refunded.

I have sent a message to Dora. I will see why the packages show $39.95. Probably because that was the lowest price Olight would allow and the sneaky sale had to look legitimate/ Just a guess there, but I will let you know what they say.

 

Only 36 lights have sold, much less than the original 50 that were needed. All in all, another bad GB and that just makes the thought of any more, less likely.

If you want to share the code in another forum, I think it would be OK, since only 36 lights ended up being sold.

That GB was a good deal O-L.
I think some people got scared off by the misunderstandings from Gearbest.
GB is showing that deal in their gadget deals tab it looks like the deal is still on.

Is any of the original purchasers still in processing or has everyone shipped. I am still stuck in processing . Now looks like red is sold out. Hopefully there is one still available. I opened a ticket. We shall see.

My brown shows as shipped. The code is “open”. (O’PEN) get it Smile
it shows on the deals page – so it’s open for everyone.

Looks like Netherlands post has received the info on mine but has not yet actually received the package. Not worried yet but keeping my fingers crossed.

They got back to me. I stated that my order has been stuck in processing for 12 days and that if they can no longer fulfill the red, then blue would be satisfactory.
They answered that they have switched the color to blue and not to worry, it will be shipped soon.

I answered that I was annoyed that I know it was in stock when I ordered it and since it was stuck in processing, they have now run out of the red. Not a big deal on my end, maybe they were already out of red. I never got anything from them staying it was backordered. I would have changed the color sooner.

Don’t look at Invoice prices.
They never show the “Deal Price” except when actually ordering.
It was the same way with the GB GB AAA stainless light.

As far as I was told, what has been ordered had shipped, except for out of stock, (including a couple of orders where other things were ordered too and not in stock), so just send them an e-mail or contact customer service about that. As far as the red, I imagine people not on the list probably ordered red right away. Not good, but probably happened.  Also, you can leave a notation with your order about the price disclosed for customs, if you need a lower price claimed. I know, a little late now.Frown

46 lights were sold so far, so short of the mark. They still have brown and blue.

My tracking number just started working in the USPS tracking system after being sent to me with a shipping notice on Oct 29th, so over two weeks apparently to get to the Netherlands post office via whatever courier service they used.

Received my o’pen. Declared value was 19.98$. Don’t know if it’s a random number or what it would costs without shipping but for me it was at least a safe value.

Really like it. Bright enough, nice feel, good quality what I expect from olight.
