Not really a CREE... That makes sense. I just picked up a CREE 5watt head lamp, 3-AA unit off e-bay straight out of hongKong for $15 delevered and man that thing is bright. The ratchet that it uses to pivot is terrible, but I've got a planed fix for it when it fails. We'll see how long it lasts but for $15 it makes my 5 year old dual Cygolite beams disappear.
Next up is the MS.
So is there any difference between the two 3 mode units in that auction besides the color of the box?
There is definitely something fishy about this. I asked the seller if they had them or they were dropped shipped. Even though the auction lists the item as being in Minnesota, I got this reply.
They responded very quickly to this question, but I have yet to hear back on my query regarding why they are so much cheaper than everyone else. More details as they arrive.....Hello. These items are shipped direct from the mfg. We submit the orders and they ship them out. We can request tracking from them but it is internal on their part so we will forward it to you once we receive it. Contact us anytime with questions or concerns.
The plot thickens.
Hello Benjamin. These do not ship international our mfg is located in NJ USA. I don't know whose prices you are comparing to. We only post prices that are given to us via the mfg.
Well, It's been ordered. I have a USPS tracking #. ebay and PP guarantee. Not branded a Magicshine but the Model#,SSC Part and BIN # is the same, got's a purty battery with a lCD too, only two modes,Low/high (perfect!) is sent from HK.
I think's even if it's a blem or grey market item, with a 14 day no question asked return policy, Strike's me as Cool beans! I must be a dmb a$$ for falling for it. Btw, I ordered the ext cable and Y from dx for $6.35. I'll dissemble, Image + identify the thingy's inside and post the results upon arrival. Same Bat time, Same Bat channel.
Kind regards to all, :^P
If these are shipping from HK that actually makes more sense than shipping from NJ Manufacturer..
Hope all ends well, maybe like in"goodfellas" these just happen to fall off the back of the truck, that is the reason for the good prices..

More from the seller.
I doubt our mfg would involve themselves in any kind of scam. They have worked with us long before we had our Ebay store. I did get your links on line and I did view them and I am curious as to the low prices we are listing compared to intl sellers but again we work with a very trusted mfg so I highly doubt we have any reason to have concern over this but I do appreciate you providing me with this information however.

+1 on Geomangear BTW - ordered Sunday (US) and received Wednesday via UPS. Impressive.

spending MORE is not always better.
That's SOP for 1st Class Mail or International shipping, even after Customs notification. Packages won't show in the system until delivery.
It's still just speculation as to whether this thing shows up or not, but ebay shows it shipped on the 21st.
But hey, it only $40.00. Worst case scenerio is to drink some Hamm's instead of Blue Moon if ebay has to refund the money.
So since a usps label was printed out, did it ship from the USA or was it Hong Kong?
So did you guys get these or what?
Nope. But I got my money back from eBay.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
