Cheap site - not a lot of flashlight stuff but VERY cheap

vova.com

i have made maybe 20 orders now

eventually things come – it is no slower than aliexpress for instance

i get nothing from recommending it

just advising fellow cheapskates —oops i mean budget minded peoples—

they have a terrible search engine – that seems to be required for a cheap chinese web site

also items in your cart have their ‘fast shipping’ enabled, which costs extra
you have to deselect it yourself to get the free shipping

I heard the other day that Chinese authorities arrested the CEO of a LEGO knock-off competitor. The brand name wasn’t even the same, but the branding was similar. I wonder if they’ll ever make SD cards a safe thing to buy on these shit crap sites.

Lexar is even owned by the Chinese, now. I thought.

Always refreshing to see a website where ****Fire is considered to be an upmarket brand.

Nevertheless, thank you. I’ve seen some pretty low prices for items from trusted brand like LG.

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

Hey! Thanks for the heads-up.

Cheap, as in inexpensive or of low quality? I’ll have to test it out. Maybe both.

They seem to have just about anything, lots of woman’s apparel…girdles?

Seems much like AE in site. I do like the “THIS IS THE END” at bottom of the flashlight listing.
A contender for bull lumens – 99 000 000

I may just get that ZHIYU P70 as a host.

I guarantee that SD card is fake. It’ll show 1TB capacity, but trying to put files on it will fail past a certain point. It’s probably really a 4gb or something.

i;d say cheap, but what i have got so far is good enough for the price.

not great quality but sometimes you do not need it for everything

yes a lot of lingerie and whatnot

they also have watch tools, tungsten carbide and titanium rings (under $2), USB C cables

basically anything that can be shipped in a small flat package is cheap, if not, amazon prices may be comparable
