Experience with manker lights web store?

Haven’t bought from them and actually haven’t done anything direct from China for years now. However, I wanted an EO2 in neutral white and Amazon only had the CW. Free shipping but don’t know from where. Did not use mankerlightusa. Just wondering if anyone has bought from them recently (in the US) and roughly how long it took to get the order.

Thanks

I bought 2 Manker E02 II from their website when it came out. Forgot how long shipping was but it wasn’t too terrible.

Looks like I will get my light today! FWIW, it sure looks like Manker did their part. From order to clearing customs half way around the world in a couple of days. Then nearly 3 weeks to make the last few miles to my house. Below is the USPS tracking and the world tracking. Go figure why it sat in a warehouse somewhere for 3 weeks before the USPS accepted it?

Some firms send a package of many flashlights to a consolidator firm in the U.S., which then, eventually, sends them out in single packages to the individual purchasers. I had a light stuck in Jamaica, NY for over a month, which was aggravating.

Most of my orders get detained in Amsterdam for at least one week.

Called PostNL who said the parcels might be in NL, but were not yet handed over by the airline.
Which is a lame excuse because outgoing parcels also remain in Amsterdam more than a week.

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

I’ve ordered a couple lights before with no problemo. Came fairly quickly. They even sent me 5 little usb rubber covers for free one time for the keychain light.

I have a bunch of orders from Aliexpress (Cainiao). They all seem to be stuck in Liege, Belgium for more than a week now even though they are outbound to Germany in the next process step.

Ali operates a hub at the airport of Liège (German = Lüttich, Wallon = Lidje, Dutch/Flemish = Luik).
