    My experience of gearbest at the moment is their having a flaky period.

    Customer service goes missing for a day - prices advertised are different on the buying page and codes are very specific to 1 item or don't work as claimed.

    Be careful with them at the mo.

      I leveled out the negative voters you had with a + , but for 10 cents I guess people will make their own judgement.

        I have never had a single issue with GearBest. Yes their price changes on a daily basis at times you will find that. So do other Chinese retailers.

        Those whining (a lot of people, not everyone though)) about shipping times obviously don't know that u have to pay extra for expedited shipping otherwise u get the slowest ever (45-60 days). I almost always get the 7-15 Aussie post option.

          Not talking about changing prices daily - talking about advertised price on front pages being different on item product page and in basket.

          Not talking about this deal either - just an observation about gearbest the last week or so.

          @petry: yeha I get what u mean. That is how it works though with these sites. If u look at an item or search for it may say e.g. $21.19, and then u go in and it's labelled as flash sale $18.69

          In basket it's the same price , but coupon codes can either make the price go back up again or reduce it. Sure it looks a bit dodgy but considering most of the items are still far cheaper (than what I would pay locally), I could care less.

        •  

          u seem determined to alter the meaning of what I am saying.

          I mean item is flash sale price $69, front page price is $69, click on item GOES UP to$95 ,and wont reduce to advertised price.

          No coupons applicable, and customer service ignore queries about bait and switch sale prices.

          Not isolated case lately at gearbest, so searchs are a waste of time as is trying to warn people here that lately gearbest have gone back to their old ways.

          There u go alter the meaning of that again.

          @petry: yeah well like I said all retailers do it. I was surprised first few times I saw it and then got over it.

          It's an outside retailer and its not governed by the ACCC, so what? Like I said whether it's less in price or more in price it doesn't matter. It never has to me cos a) I might shop around at other Chinese retailer sites b) still save money anyways c) look for something else and not get bummed.

        •  

          If price doesn't matter to u what u doing here?

        • -2 votes

          @petry: price does matter somewhat otherwise I wouldn't be shopping on GearBest or other sites for tech would I.

          However on the other hand I'm not a penny pincher or trying to barter on goods down to the wire. There's a limit as to how lame and how stingy and how far one wants to go.

          Like I said mate, this is how these retailers do business, move on.

          @petry: I've stayed consistent with what I've said. you've made it your point to complain about the changing prices, and rather than staying objective, have made it subjective about your experience.

          or in plain words: you've run out of comebacks, cos i spelled it out in plain slight and corrected you. move along, termite.

        That's probably the only way to use it, as a torch. Maybe put it at the end of a USB extension cord or something

        • -2 votes

          no.

        •  

          they actually do get pretty hot.

          have been testing them on hourly increments, hoping nothing bad would happen so I can use them for night lights through the night.

          am using a small original samsung usb charger for galaxy to test

      • +1 vote

        If you put one into a USB battery then you have a torch which will last for ages (ie over a week)

        10AH battery
        0.2W device = 0.2/5v = 0.04A
        10/0.04 = 250hours

        • +1 vote

          I reckon these are more than 0.2W. I stuck one in a cheap USB ammeter thing, which typically under-reads (like stuff is clearly on but it says 0.00A) and these pull ~120mA = 0.6W - which is actually consistent with online specs of 2835 LED chips being 0.2W ~30mA each.

          Now I haven't tested these properly using a DMM so I could be wrong.

      Night lights when you put them into one of the usb chargers you got with cheap $20 burner phones.

      • +5 votes

        I like your thinking.
        I was thinking the same too, you know we think alike :).

        It uses 0.2w, so say you have it on for 8 hours each night, 365 days a year and electricity is $0.30 per kilowatt.

        0.2w X 8h = 1.6w
        1.6w X 365d = 584w

        $0.0003 cost per watt X 584w = $0.1752

        w = watts
        h = hours
        d = days

        So the total rounded yearly cost is $0.18 :)

    Still unsure what to do with all 5 got last deal. Plug into xiaomi powerbank and just only on for 10 sec then off. Unplug and plug back in to make another 10 sec light

    •  

      Really? When I plug mine in it stays on permanently (have to press the button to make it come on, but once on it stays on).

    • +1 vote

      Yeah I have the same problem. Both my newer Xiaomi and Aukey banks just turn the led off; I assume cause the power draw is too low to register as a charging device.

      An older sony one from years ago seems to work ok with it though.

  •  

    Bloody hell, bought 2 sets after one of these for about 50 cents each (new signup with some points).
    Only just last week bought another 2 sets for $1.27 each, but needed warm white.

    I'm still gonna pick another set up anyway with this deal LOL

    •  

      what are you building with these?

    •  

      What was your use-case

    •  

      You know the rule. Buy now, figure it out later :P

      OK for the warm white ones, I have in my head some kind of USB powered table lamp. More so because "legally" I can't do any 240V wiring and no one really sells "pre-wired lamp/switch sets", or if they do def cost more than a USB charger and cable.

      It's just a bit of a pipe dream idea really. Cheap enough to not be an issue if it never eventuates. I'm sure I can stick these elsewhere or leave one in each bag, car, etc.

    I'm getting a "The Code you entered has expired" error when trying to apply the code? Couldn't have expired already could it?

    Edit: my bad, I didn't realise I had tabbed out of a purchase in progress and the system wouldn't let me apply the code a second time. Successfully completed the original transaction, all good now. Missed out the first time so thanks TA! :)

  • +3 votes

    When I apply the code the price goes up from 0.99 to 1.80.

  •  

    Thanks TA! 10c…..no brainer!

  •  

    is it easy to solder a 5v wire to the 5v point so you dont need to use a usb connector?

  •  

    only one pack per account? that's annoying

  •  

    added both cool and warm white and still 10c only!

  • +1 vote

    Warm White, the only version worth using, was a no-go.
    But at 10 cents, can't complain if it's Cool White.

    Every time I've used Gearbest (not often), I got stuff months later. It's guess this means I'm officially shopping for Christmas.

  •  

    Anyone wonders HOW these e-retailers can sell a product like this for (without discount) $0.99? Let alone $0.10 (I know I know, loss lead but still..)! Don't forget shipping, manual labour to package these items, cost of materials for the packaging etc..

    What is the price ex factory?

    Another example is this standing floor lamps I got from IKEA, $10 for the whole lot (without discount) and the thing is built like a brick! Heavy base, solid shaft, bought it in early 2013 and it's still going strong despite everyday usage.

    Boggles my small mind the manufacturing process these items go through only to be sold at such a low price.

      chinese sweat shops

      If you're not a member, you have to sign in. Signing in usually means receiving a crapload of spam from the shop. Some users respond to the spam. So they get their money and they get more eyeballs in front of their spam. Any losses they make (if they do) are easily recouped by customers who shop there.

      In China, they also sell a lot of factory defect items on ebay and elsewhere. Maybe this is, maybe it isn't. But they make (and sell) for the world, so there are high volumes involved. Globalisation is also another word for worldwide slavery so the few can earn on the backs of many, as always has been. Enviro laws are super-slack, so one part of the earth can be destroyed while Westerners can be 'saving the earth' long after they've done the very same thing China has in their own countries (ie. sweatshop slavery and massive enviro degradation). In China, postage is also cheap (if you don't count the hidden costs), whereas here we can't buy an envelope, let alone send it, for anything that would be considered reasonable cost.

      I bought them the first time advertised as well - thought at the time what the H would I use them for.

      Have used them heaps !
      Got one permanently on my keyring.
      Travelled recently and had one plugged into a small rechargeable battery most nights.

      Small, but useful.
      Just my opinion.

      search ebay for:
      30cm flexible usb -led
      You will see listings for the perfect device to go with this. But be careful of the strain you may place on your USB port. It's easy to damage a USB port with rough handling and 'accidents' with this sticking out of it. Hooking it up to a powerbank, you basically have a portable desk lamp/ reading light/ task light.

    I have at least 200 of these (most are the larger ones). 2 are permanently bed side lights for me and the misses (damable on off tap ones) . one is in the back of the tv facing the wall so its always on when the tv is on. Gives a nice glow to the surrounding wall so your eyes hurt less when watching a movie in the dark. And one is permanently on the hall on as a night light. And 196 are stored for SHTF purposes with a few dollar portable phone chargers.

    I have had some pretty bad experiences with Gearbest. Not worth it, even for 7c.

    I keep missing these and would actually use them- damn you people buying for no reason!

    just realised that I could have saved some soldering, case modification and $5 by using one of these for a power LED on a RPi

  •  

    wow, bought these years ago when they were 'first released' and showed up on some drop shippers RSS feed.

    Nice little compact keychain light since you can power these up almost anywhere or with a portable usb power bank.

    7c is cheap.. think I paid $1.00 shipped.. questionable reliability if used for long periods tho.. that being said left mine out in the rain and mud.. wiped it down with iso 95-100% and worked fine, love the 'warm white-ish' :)
