So I will have the Dilda maybe next week but it's going to be nothing more than a paperweight until DX ships the batteries, sigh... *:

EDIT: Fwiw, when they finally ship, the package moves along at a reasonable pace. DX shipped my (first) package on the 4th, HK Post shipped it on the 5th and I just got it (EU) today (the 10th). From my point of view, five days is pretty good. If only their inventory status was a little more accurate... *:

DX is pretty trustworthy. Wait it out, and the stuff always comes.

I've got quite a few 10440 batteries if you're looking for those... I'm located in Arlington, TX You mention 14500 here though...

Default DEAL EXTREME

One thing that I did notice about DX. Their prices seem very competitive.......until you go to Harbor Freight and find some exact things for the same price or even cheaper. Unfortunately, Harbor Freight does not stock batteries and lasers; but many tools and electronic goodies are as cheap as DX and in stock for purchase. They have many stores and mail order in the US. Honestly, even if the batteries are twice the price at Battery Junction, it's worth the price not to buy with such uncertainty (from overseas). For batteries, twice the price may mean spending an extra $5 to $10 dollars which is WAY worth it when you factor in the waiting. * Bill

yea, its kinda your fault for not doing some research about DX ahead of time about their shipping. They are usually pretty slow. But my 35mW waterproof greenie i got from them around last February still works perfectly fine

Tis true. I have had about a total of 30 orders from them. Not one single problem.

To make matters worse, they charged me for the order on the 22nd of Jan. *And on Feb 3rd, charged me AGAIN for the same order.
I AM NOW OUT OVER $60+ DOLLARS

I am unaware of their reputation here, but this was my 1st and, GUARANTEED, my last order. *I called VISA this morning and disputed both charges as fraud.

Honestly, how hard is it to stuff a couple batteries in a box?
Hey, I just realized something. *You said that you got charged twice. *This is not Dealextremes fault. *They don't have your charge card number, only PayPal does. *The only way that you would get charged twice is if you approved it through Paypal. *So really, It's paypals fault or your own. *

Sure their shipping is slow, get used to it. *My average order takes about 2 weeks. *I don't complain. *Have you seen their prices?

I ordered from DX 5 times and always got my stuff airmail to the US in under 10 days. What attracts me and disturbs me about DX are the prices. They are great, but you know they use child labor. But I guess all the big retail stores that get stuff from China are just as responsible. At least we are fortunate enough to get the stuff at a fraction of retail. The wait is worth it.

I doubt they can understand it anyways. To look at a horse quality it was usual to look at the mouth as the color of their teeth shows what their health is. So it acutally means that if you have a horse for free don't look it's mouth ;p
