itp A3 EOS upgraded is a very nice light. It's hanging from my keychain right now. If you're in the USA, I would recommend getting it from goinggear.com with a 10% coupon (ggcpf10). My grand total was $20.35. I got my order in 2 days!

Right Daniel?

OMG! the itp A3 eos upgraded has arrived just now! I am impressed!. It has not the keychain loop shown in the photos, the keychain is identical to the one in the A1 and A2. Also I can not see the PWM (nor in the MED nor in the LOW), probably has a new driver with HIGH PWM frecuency has in the A2. Also I can not hear the PWM switching.... nothing

 

I will buy more! Please please good discount to the A3 eos upgraded!!!

I'd say give us the itp for as cheap as you can manage! I wouldn't want Daniel to not chose the itp for discount just because he couldn't manage to sell it at 15 bucks.

 

But I agree: for a price around 15, I'd definetely buy more than what I originally planned.

I think the best price range for the itp A3 will be between 15 and 17 USD. However, will be very good that LT give us the A3 as cheap as they can manage.

 

Hope LT can give us a good price of the A3....

 

I am playing with it at this moment, and as more play with it, more want to buy.... Also I have to order unprotected 10440...

Enjoy BLF

Daniel,

Let me see if I have this right:

I should buy from your company because I can save $0.01??

lightake

vs

dx

AND, if I have a problem with a DX light, they will pay up to 33% of the light cost for me to ship it back to Florida, USA for replacement (Free). What does your company do if the light doesnt work? I have already compared your prices to your competition, and they average less than you. I spend about $200 each month on flashlights. So far, I have not seen a good reason to purchase from lightake.

Also, you asked what light we would like to see discounted for a volume purchase - and we told you. What is your answer? Prices please?

Flashpilot: I have received 5 items from DX wich arrived defective or stoped working in few days. ALWAYS DX sent a replacement for free. The cheapest was 8,12 USD and the more expensive 14,80 USD.


DX has a very good customer service. Probably LT can´t do the same.

Hi Daniel

 

I recognize that you say you will do something about your high prices. But saying wont do it, action will!

If its only a few prices you will change it will never work.

 

I dont say that all your prices are higher, but in general they are! But other factors are also important.

As Flashpilot and Fran82 in posts above points out customerservice, shippingtime, RMA are factor

that has to be better than your competitors to really get one to switch supplyer.

 

And you are to be trusted! The case where you tried to sell a light with a Q5 as a R5 even after you were

told, are not the way to do it.

 

When everything is better, customers will come without large adverticing efforts. I hope you will manage.

We consumers like competion because the result is often better for us!

hi FlashPilot ,

we just try our best to offer you a better service .

when you are not satisfy with our product ,we can refund your money back if  you shipped our product back .

DX have a large sales everyday but we didn't have ,and the can get the procducts cheaper than us because they have a large sale ,

we only cut the profit to keep our price in low , and we also can offer some ship fee when you shipped the item back .

we just planning to cut down the price ,you can see our reomsen flashlight product ,and today i have compare the Fenix flashlight ,and the price will change about three days latter .

 

We just want do our best ,i think you should give me the chance.

if  there is something that you are not satidfy ,you can tell me ,and i will do our best to change it !

 

thanks for your advice !

 

Best Regards,

Daniel

Daniel,

1)     If I buy a defective item from you, what address do I return it to?

2)     What price can you offer the "ITP A3 EOS upgraded" to us for?

Thanks Phlocus, but on the planet I'm on, its officially tomorrow. Did you sleep to long or did I miss something here? Tongue out All HK resellers have access to bulk purchase pricing from their suppliers online so its not rocket science. How long does a phone call take to confirm? I move expensive items all the time, and a deal like this would have taken me all of 15 minutes to confirm and convey to the forum.

I have asked Daniel in other threads about their return policy and still haven't got a direct answer yet. I buy in bulk (more than 10 lights at a time) from DX because they pay 100% return shipping on items that don't work. If the item is less than $14.99 in value, they ship me a new one... FREE, and I don't have to return the broken item. They also know I spend no less than $100 with them each and every month, so we have an implied business relationship. I've been quite clear with my intent to find out exactly what lightake's position is on returning defective merchandise. Unless they are willing to pay 100% return shipping (if they want the dead item back), my money will continue to be spent elsewhere.

So all politeness aside, Id like to see some concise answers from Mr. Daniel when he has a chance to reply. From Daniel: "and we also can offer some ship fee when you shipped the item back" This is vague and not a promise, and certainly doesn't match DX's return policy. Lets see lightake match DX and maybe then they will get some of my business. Fair enough? I'm not about to pay $20 shipping to return a $10 item all the way back to HK from the US, especially when DX pays me 100% to return their items to Florida, USA. Officially, DX will pay up to 1/3 the purchase price for return shipping. Since shipping never exceeds 1/3 the purchase price (I'm shipping within the US to a US location) they pay 100%.
