Another Ebayer seller with very little feedback, worth a try if you can afford to lose 20 or so bucks on the deal.

So if 92 have been sold why does he only have a 23 feedback rating?

If it turns out to be a fraud, is it protected through ebay/paypal? I've never done one like this - looks too good to be true (usually is).

problem for me - it says if defective you pay shipping back.

I'd pay $23 for the host if there were drivers available

the charger and batteries would go to recycling

I stopped at the Irish Pub after our group ride last night and spent this much on beer/tip in 45 minutes. Screw it, just bought. I can always file PayPal or ebay dispute, right?

Kinda puts the hurt on the Tmart group buy thread, don't it?

Use a DRY driver and mod it to work with it Wink

can't think of a good way to do that...

driver's different size?  no room to add connectors for changing to serial and even if you did, you'd end up w/ a spacer (extra battery).  might as well just buy a dry...

edit: oh, and wrong kind of switch

I did the same, what the hell, if it's real or even a host that's ok, if fake or scam can file a claim.

 

Somebody make sure to take screenshots of EVERYTHING there in case the need for a dispute arises.

Honestly I still don't think it would be that hard to mod, but then again I could get it and it may be impossible to mod, oh well, we shall see what happens.

Yeah, those are some of the worst or most dangerous batteries you can buy.  Looks like it's burned pretty good.  Maybe they are selling damaged driver flashlights.  Be good for spare parts or one to paint black if it even arrives. 

Looks like I'm number 98 on this one.  Wish me luck.

This sounds like they know the charger will work...but the light will not


Why defective within the first month you can send it back, but DOA you only have 14 days to get it back to them?


I hope it works out, because I'll buy one too, but I'm pretty skeptical.  That said, if I had not toasted a lawn mower yesterday, I'd probably be in for one - at least I'd probably get a charger and some parts...


· If item defective in 1 Month, we will offer replacement without extra Charger(including shipping fee) After we Receive the Defective item.

· If item Defective after 1 Month, you can still send it back, we will repair it for you. You might need to pay the Shipping fee for the resend.

· If item DOA(Dead of Arrival), you can return it in 14 Days, we will send you the replacement after we receive the DOA item. Please Contact us before you sent the item back.

I'm not expecting the light to work, I'd just be happy to get it and have one to take apart and work on.  If I get it and it works, I'd be really amazed.

The seller goes from selling key chains to this? It's not even a 4500 lumen light. This seems like a bust. And yes that battery is toast.

Well I hope it goes good for those that did jump on it.  i'm still debating.  But again you are protected through paypal.  It's just the matter of the waiting game if it goes wrong.

The guy (seller) has been on ebay since June 2011, but ALL his feedback is in the last 30 days. Methinks he is bogus, and this is going to cost PayPal some $$  Almost all of his feedback is on items that cost less than a buck.

I would think the scam would be even better and more believable if he asked $55 or so, plus he would make a lot more money...

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

this sounds like a "get a few feedbacks then pull a grift" type of account..
