This was an acquisition in DX – DealExtreme of the following:
- 5 Keychain Flashlights with 3 Auto LED Rechargeable Solar with Black Power (3-LED Solar Panel LED Flashlight Keychain)
- 10 Keychain Flashlights with 3 Auto Rechargeable LED with Solar Energy Assorted Colors (3-LED White Light Solar Powered Self-Recharge Flashlight Keychain (Color Assorted))
He had asked the first 5 Keychain Flashlights with 3 Auto LED Rechargeable Solar with Black Power, but they were missing, so I asked the 10 Keychain Flashlights with 3 Auto Rechargeable LED with Solar Energy Assorted Colors. Ultimately ended up coming together. Received in the following colors:
- 4 Keychain Flashlights Black
- 6 Keychain Flashlights Blue
- 4 Keychain Flashlights red
- 1 Flashlight Keychain green
Apparently the DX He missed with a keychain, it came only 4 black and 11 Colorful. But okay, hitherto not found need to complain.
Initially I was looking for simpler keychains-lanterns, with just one LED and non-rechargeable I had bought at other times in the DX, but strangely all ads of those models, in various colors and types disappeared. I went to the forums looking for a solution to the mystery and for what they said was something related to patents. Looks like someone has patented the idea and filling the DX to stop selling the Keychain-lanterns.
I could have bought the same Keychain-lanterns in TinyDeal or no AliExpress, but I found this model of Keychain Flashlights with 3 LEDs Auto Batteries with Solar Energy in DX and I found more interesting. The illumination is to be increased 3 LEDs instead of a, and he has a solar cell to charge the batteries, in other words, without limiting the useful life of the battery (except for refills cycles) those Keychain Flashlights should last much longer. Also the batteries will recharge naturally while the keys are hanging on the door, the car contact, a key ring or on a mobile any. Great idea!
The reports of the first who dismantled these pets is that inside there really a rechargeable battery inside. But on my purchase DX dropped the ball and sent phony Locksmiths, whose solar panel is not connected to anything and batteries are only CR2016 common, refillable. Nor was suspicious until warned the forum of DX that appeared a lot of Keychain Flashlights fake again. And to my chagrin I opened mine and saw that it was actually false.
Open a ticket with the DX asking for the full refund, because the way that have been assembled and the battery was placed these keychains are virtually worthless and will last only until the non-rechargeable batteries run out. Now, we expect the willingness to respond and fight for full refund if necessary, because in case of a defect sometimes offer only partial reimbursement.
Disappointing by the DX and more disappointing still know that there is no way to identify the legitimate ads that abound in the eBay and no AliExpress. Even those who bought in Amazon received fakes. And you can not know if it was the original manufacturer which spoiled the product to cut costs or other Chinese factories decided to make a bum clone. The case of China unknown companies anything can happen.
