Where to buy genuine products?

Hey,
do you guys know of (chinese) stores that sell genuine products?
For example, Iam interested in a Nitecore D2 charger, but Iam worried about fakes.
But also I want to get it cheap.

I know about the Convoy aliexpress.com store, because I also want to buy a S2+.
Does this store sell genuine nitecore chargers?
There are others like fast tech or banggood, as far as i know that are not market places like aliexpress.com? So do they sell genuine products?

Where(and when) have you bought your chargers, that passed the validation: http://www.nitecore.com/security.aspx

I guess you are from Germany or Austria? Try www.nkon.nl reasonable prices and genuine products

Indeed, Iam from Germany.
But including shipping, the local stores are considerably more expensive.
Nkon.nl for example costs me 7.95€ for shipping alone.

Chinese stores offer free shipping most of the time.
I have no problem waiting 3 weeks to save 8€, but only if I can ensure to receive genuine products.

Can’t comment on any specific stores, but if you go with Paypal and use one of the established storefronts (FT/ GB/ …) you should be able to claim back if there’s something amiss. Pay attention to your Paypal 45 day claim window.

You can buy it at banggood with code “blf” for $17.84. Then after you received it check the validation tool if it is genuine. If it is not contact them they will sort it out.
Savings are around 10€, so should be worth it.

Guten Tag, HansWursT619, Herzich Willkommen bei BLF.

The Paypal claim window (Käuferschutz) is extended to 180 days. Also in Germany Smile
That gives you some extra security, considering the time that goes by before the goods actually arrive on your doorstep.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

It’s not clear if Nitecore’s validation number is actually working as it should.
It might be a database problem, from the discussion in that thread — hard to tell yet.
