    Off topic; anybody ever notice the shipping time table from AliExpress uses new math?

    From the Us shipping time table

    5.2 % of people get it in 5 to 9 days
    50.1 % get it in 10 to 15 days
    29.60 % get it in 16 to 20 days
    14.70 % get it in 21 to 25 days
    4.70 % of people get it in 26 to 30 days
    0.9 % of people get it in over 31 days

    First of all thats 105.2 %, and why the heck would they go to 2 significant places after the decimal??

    I'm guessing that the 0.9 % of people that don't receive their item after 31 days are still waiting.

    5.2% of people get junk that doesn't work and so it needs to be shipped twice?

    Sounds a bit low to me.

    That made me smile...

    @ ironbrewer; Okay, so the Chinese don't understand lumen outputs ( )
    or Shipping estimate totals. As long as you get your lamp with free shipping in less than a month from half-way around the world AND EVERYTHING WORKS, I'm not gonna worry about the other stuff. If it's math your worried about you might want to worry more about how our government reaches it's budget totals. Now that my friend is something to worry about.

    Paid for my Solarstorm July 8th,

    Shipped on July 11th,

    Received on July 22nd in Colorado.

    It's much smaller than I thought it would be. I like the UI. The beam pattern looks like it might be a bit too spotty, but I'll see when I can get it on the trail.
