Waited eagerly for nearly 4 weeks until a knock at the door a the nice postman said i have a parcel here which needs a signature please.

My first thoughts was Wow it looks BIG ( Must be well packed )

Could not wait so i opened it up and first thing was the 2 batteries that fell out only to be faced with the below :

They have admitted they have sent the wrong item ( NEVER ! ) and want me to send it back at an estimated cost £50 postage ( I don't think so ).

Just waiting to see if they are going to send the replacement skyray or refund me in full and not a good start to my first order from lightlake i must say.

This is really crap.... another guy from BLF ordered the 3 x XM-L from lightake too and it is faulty. Obviously no QC at all. Better to get from DX/Kaidomain/Manafont, they are the only regularly tested sites with at least a decent form of customer service.

assuming you paid by paypal just complain to them and they'll get your money back, it is pretty hiddeous, especially as you wanted a torch.

ljw2k, That is quite an interesting looking rabbit you received in the mail and the crushed box is certainly a nice touch. Good thing you didn't buy this as a gift. Assuming this rabbit is intended as a child's toy it has quite a scary expression on its face in a "bad clown" sort of way. What I'd really like to know is what this thing actually does when you put the batteries in?

Does it take 18650's? Maybe they ran out of stock bodies at SkyRay's factory so they started using bunny hosts in the meantime!

You mean they sent batteries that have nothing to do with this product? What a value!

I hope if you decide to execute the evil rabbit you will document the whole affair for us. :xyxgun: :devil:

Seriously, though, this thread is actually rather useful in that about a year ago I almost ordered something from Lightake but something about the web site and the lack of enthusiasm about them here at CPF made me to decide not to, so my instincts were apparently on target.

Yes i ordered 2x 18650 batteries along with the Skyray x3 X-ML and i got the batteries but no flashlight.

At First they told me that they had sent the right items that i ordered and there weights corresponded with the items until i proved them wrong when i took pictures of each item weighed on scales which came to 0.66 kg.

Many email later i started a paypal Dispute which i am waiting for a refund if they rule in my favour.

Oh. From the way you originally described opening the package I thought perhaps the batteries came with the rabbit, even if they do seem a bit large for a toy. That's too bad. I was hoping it would make strange noises, wiggle its ears, blink its eyes and change facial expressions. I mean, for the cost of a Skyray 3X-ML it's the least you could expect.

Really though, ljw2k, I hope after all the hassle you resolve this to your satisfaction.

No wonder the rabbit looks like his knickers are in a wad! Look at the box!

That blows. Hope resolution comes quickly.

This is a funny thread except for the "dude you got ripped off!" thingy.

I can't believe after sending them a picture of this thing he actually has to go through escalating to a claim with ebay, let alone that they want this monstrousity back. Really is the return shipping more than it's worth? Is it worth ANYthing?

I was looking at lightlake but ended up going with a DRY from CNqualitygoods, hope they don't have any sqoowey wabbits there!
