Who can I trust from the sellers listed in my post?

I want a red Uniquefire HS-802 for hog hunting. I have found it at the following sites but I don’t know who to trust

Gearbest
Dealsmachine
Lights-box
Ledsupermall
Kaidomain
Lightsmall

Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooches him… and says, Catch up.

I suppose the most accurate answer is all and none of them.

As I’m sure people have had good and bad experiences with all of them. And those that have had bad, usually won’t recommend a place, even regardless or the cause or issue detail. Although sometimes it will be justified.

All you can do is take a punt and see how you get on. As I suspect there are more companies trying to do business than there are companies trying to scam you. So the odds should be in your favour.

Personally I’ve not heard of 4 of them. But I have bought from Kaidomain and Gearbest in the past. And thus far haven’t had issues with them. But to be fair, until I bought from Gearbest or Kaidomain, I hadn’t heard of them before either.

Make sure you use some kind of buyer protection when you pay, or be happy to right off the value should something go wrong if you don’t.

I have received everything I ever ordered from every seller I’ve dealt with but almost always patience is required. Expect to wait 6-8 weeks from the time you place your order. That includes DX, KD, CNQG, IOS, FastTech, and GB and of those FastTech was the quickest(usually less than 4). Whenever possible I order from Mtnelectronics or Illum for LEDs and the things they carry but some items are only available from China. Even with my (knock wood) good fortune I still consider it a risk each time I order given the number of customer service failures that happen but that risk is the trade off for the absurdly low prices we see. Some of those you mention I’ve not heard of but that means nothing as I wasn’t looking and there are many others I’ve not dealt with simply for lack of need.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

As was said already trust is not as much of an issue as is the patience.

Have you checked with BLF forum member Cereal Killer to see what he would charge for a red light?

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most

Usually the safest bet is to go with whomever the forum is using as the vendor is doing their best to keep up their image . reliability is like a faucet . they can be good or horrible in a matter of minutes . thats why this forum exists to some extent . so we know who's hot and who's not . so of the ones you've listed i'd say it's gearbest 

 If i had to list them in order i'd say  gearbest kai lightsmall dealmachine.lighs in a box and the last one I never heard of ...  ?? YMMV
