I just got myself my very first 26650 flashlight. So, I ordered a pair of these “GTL” 26650 batteries based on the “4-star” rating on DX.
(Yeah I know, there are a lot of better batteries out there, but the price (($16.99) was friendly and I’m a cheapskate anyway
Shipped on Jan 6th and arrived today Jan 9
3 days! Free shipping… That’s the fastest shipping to delivery time I’ve ever experienced. What’s more DX used a different carrier (see pics)
I’m mighty pleased with this. Could DX be upping its game? I hope so…
Is it possible that they have a yearly contract with delivery companies and are entitled to a certain amount / value of postage each year. If they do not utilities it, it might be wasted.
Just a thought.
Singapore post (Singpost) is no better. So many times my packages had already been delivered to my doorstep and the Singpost webpage still shows that the package has yet to reach Singapore!
I emailed them twice about this and got what I call a non-answer.
DISCLAIMER: I am in NO way affiliated with DX or any other vendor.
This is totally unexpected.
I placed an order for some camera odds and ends (approx. $20) with DX this morning at 10:32am.
At 2:01pm I was informed by email that my order has been shipped… with tracking number.
That’s about 3 and a half hours from ordering to shipping
Is this for real or what? I certainly hope this isn’t a one-off thing…
It may not be the case here, but most of these online stores mark “shipped” when the label was made or the package was wrapped. The package gets to the shipping service some number of days later. I had an order with a store (not dx) marked shipped and then tracking showed the package actually arriving at the nearby sort facility about a month later.
Yeah… you’re right.
I ordered (what else?) a flashlight from BG and they said it was “shipped” on 9 January.
A few days later I checked with the tracking number and realised it was actually shipped out on 13 Jan instead.
