@shubydoo Oh, none of the photos showed it flickering. They do show a white and yellow mode. But previous outdoor solar ones did show a flicker so I know meh knows how to make an animated gif. Wonder why they didn’t do it this time.
I should read the specs next time before making conclusions.
Meanwhile late last month I ordered one of those $4 iphone cases on sidedeal (which doesn’t have a forum so I’m posting here instead) as a present for a friend. I took the free (with subscription) shipping which supposedly can take a few weeks to go out, since I wasn’t in a hurry. A few minutes later I decided an extra would be nice, so I ordered another one.
I figured the idea of the non-expedited shipping was that if you ordered several things in a week or two period, they could bundle them together and save costs by shipping in one package. It seemed very clever.
Imagine my surprise when I got two shipping notifications for the two iphone cases, a day or two later. Same product, same pre-filled address, two orders a few minutes apart. No 1-2 week shipping delay. The two packages duly arrived though I didn’t get around to picking them up til yesterday.
I can’t knock a company for shipping promptly when they didn’t have to, but you know Meh, when you offer free shipping on $4 items, people are ok with it being slow. So it’s fine if you optimize your logistics a little to combine packages. It saves some envelopes and stuff too .
@phr On a related note, I ordered a Chefman pressure cooker from morningsave and it wouldn’t do the whole pressure cooking part. I sent an email to mercatalyst support, and they told me to contact the manufacturer, because they offer a 1 year warranty. So I did. Chefman responded by telling me they don’t make that model or any pressure cookers anymore. They offered a fucking electric tea kettle or a coffee maker as a replacement. I told them that was unacceptable and then contacted mercatalyst again. They sent out a replacement pressure cooker that arrived 2 or 3 days later, while Chefman ignored 3 emails and a Facebook message. I think the mercatalyst sites are all about good customer service, even if it costs them a little money. Chefman is about making broken garbage and ignoring customers in hopes they’ll just go away. That’s why I’m never buying anything from Chefman again, and I’ll keep buying random things I don’t necessarily want or need from meh and friends.
I’ve got to come to terms with my flashlight a-holic issues!!! I’ve already got the solar tiki torches and soon to be here speaker LED torches and a bunch of lanterns so I’m going to have to pass on this even though my hand is shaky as I compose this very text ( NO LED LANTERNS, NO LED LANTERNS… )
