You know there is a lot of truth about buyer beware and who you purchase from on ebay.
I bought two wall chargers on ebay, I think it was 10.00 with shipping. I was in a hurry so I didn't notice they were coming from China.
When I got my receipt is when I spotted the 10-18 day shipping. Then I also noticed it was coming from China.
OK, I can wait so long as they work.
They arrived day before yesterday. Took 16 days to get here. Put the battery in and the charger turned blue. Since no instructions were provided I figured it was OK.
Then I got the second charger and it turned red. Now this made sense to me, power charge on Red and when completed blue. I sent the guy an email and asked what's up with the lighting. He gave me a ridiculous answer saying they change colors and when it turns green you are done.
Not quite how it works. When it turns blue it's done.
I didn't realize that though so I kept the battery in the charger 24 hours and when I pulled it out it showed a charge of 20%. I immediately sent the guy a note detailing the condition of the chargers and that they didn't seem to be working properly.
Here's the answer I got back:
hello dear, do you mean there's 1pcs wall charger not work? just no worries, let's make sure what's trouble. kindly try write shorter email and speaker clearly. many thanks
Hello dear???? OMG.... Speak clearly? I detailed the problem for you....
Well, it's a 10.00 lesson. I found the chargers even cheaper with free shipping from a guy with a higher rating in Brooklyn. Thinking about buying them but they look exactly like the ones that came from China. Don't know if I want to gamble again.
I could go through paypal and all that but it just doesn't seem to be worth the hassle over 10.00.
Buyer beware. I'll still buy off ebay but I'll pay a bit more attention next time.
