Flow of chinkshit has completely ceased on my end. I haven't received a package in over 2 weeks even though I buy a lot of little cheap trinkets and have a package coming in ever few days.

>>74752874>TWS earbudsFinally. Thanks OP.
>>74752842Yep, it still was cheaper.
>>74752874I heard that the Chinese is bombing Wuhan continuously to destroy any possibly infected? Is there any validity to these claims?
Still looking for a tiny mouse to go with my laptop. Already looked at Logitech G but even their smaller stuff is too bulky in at least one dimension for me. I like the idea of a wacomtablet, but I hate that it "clicks" the moment I put it on the stylus to the tablet, I want a separate clicking button and I can't remap the stylus keys to LMBI found this weird "Swiftpoint" mouse that really suits my needs but despire being 8 years old it costs over a 150 bucks.Any other recommendations? There are a few mice that are shaped like pens but I couldn't find any trustworthy reviews on them.
A couple of months back, I bought the Headroom MS-16 earphones. They are great, the thing is, because I usually don't take them off while working, the wires eventually get caught onto something and after a few times something like this happens, the cable gets fucked up. I don't blame them, as they almost lasted a year of abuse and neglect, I am just wondering if there is a wireless version of those earphones - I do not like the wireless phones that go deep into your ear canal.Also does anyone remember the name of the website where someone posts reviews of chink headphones?
Any one have a good method for getting knockoff/and custom art made over in China? I recall the early days of csg an anon doing it.
>>74754339How do you mean? Like getting a poster printed?
>protection time ends>file a dispute>ask for 100% refund but only want to extend protection time>Chang doesn't reply>AliExpress refunds medamn I hope Chang is ok
Anyone know how pic related compares to an engraving laser?
How do you do fellow /csg/?
>>74754453>extend protection timeYou had to extend it before the time ran out.
>>74754606Ia extending even a good idea? Because you'll get a full refund if it doesn't arrive most of the time
>>74752874Received some chink shit (guitar parts) yesterday, opened it. Now gotta wait 2~ weeks to see if I die or not.
>>74754606>if the seller accepts your requestAre you expecting Chang to do that?
>>74754634The consumer gains nothing. It is up to you if you want to play nice, it is hard to blame the store if the government has forced a lockdown.>>74754726Yes, why not? if the time runs out, then he has to pay a refund.
>>74754606huh the AE bot told me to file a dispute after the protection time expired
>>74754601that's probably the realest chink shit i will ever witness.
>>74754779>Yes, why not?For me sellers haven't responded to that extension request.
>>74754726This isn't eGay where 99% of sellers are out to fuck you. I've run into far more problems with products on aliexpress, but all these sellers know that and easily accept and deal with order problems.
>>74754594How many watts is itIn fact don't answer that question, the answer is: they are not comparable
>>74754779Yeah, that's what I thought. The extend is only if you want to play nice with the seller, that is willing to fuck you over most of the time

>>74757160i already accepted my fate that i'll have to wait a month for items to be stuck at airport for me to ask for a refund and I ordered at 15th of January, you making an order after seeing what is happening have only yourself to blame and expect refunds.
>>74757260i just wanna order my shit, forget about it and hopefully it gets here after 30 days. this wait is too damn long.
>>74757523look up local warehouses then or buy non chink goods, I doubt we'll get anything before march, I got my 2 packages rejected by security already and stuck at airport, last time that happened the item never arrived
>>74755749>that frogposter greentext
I still have one usb drive I ordered for less than a dollar that I ordered a year ago that hasn't come in yet.
*Coughs*Dear, extend processing time. Your product will ship after lockdown ends.Please understand.
>>74754594>99 million lumensThat implies a power usage of 160kW at the least, probably closer to 10MW considering the luminous efficacy of blue lasers. Sure if they measured luminous intensity (in candelas) they could probably rate it stupidly high because of the intensely collimated beam, but lumens are a measure of luminous power, there's no avoiding their implications unless it's a pulsed laser, which I'm pretty sure it isn't. What's Wish's refund policy like? You could simply measure the current coming from the battery to tell them that it's not outputting 99Mlm.
Are the chinks shipping anything right now?
>>74758597Yes, for the items I ordered in the past month, it seems to be about 50% shipped and 50% didn't.
>>74758597Mostly they do not ship.Since the last week I have 3 waiting and 1 shipped.

>>74759604>>74759760Which LED strip from ali should I get?
>>74754320This one perhaps?https://audiobudget.com/leaderboard/earbud
>>74760083Well for starters, Bias lighting requires RGB lighting, which is terrible CRI-wise, and cannot be rated as 6500K or 2700K or anything like that. It basically has to be that 3-pin individually addressable stuff, and there's basically no difference between those LED strips at all other than LED density. Might want to run multiple strips in parallel for speed though. It shouldn't be bright enough to consider eye strain anyhow.

>>74758852Corona virus cannot survive without a host for more than 72h. To be safe, you can just not open your package for a week. Unless you're ordering something organic that can host the virus you have nothing to worry about. Some post offices wrap the package in their own foil as well.
How do CESDeals.com compare to the other chinkshit sites? They've got the best price on a Doogee S80 that I can see
>>74762573I've never even heard of this site before, which means they're either new or shit.
Maybe one day I'll get this keyboard, but so far I've had one seller chink me and another either lie about sending it or it's got lost in the CNY/Coronavirus shitstorm.
>>74762660thought as much, don't want to risk it so guess I'll have to settle for buying either the S68 Pro or the base model S90C from their official AliExpress
Anybody has any experience with taobao agents like superbuy/wegobuy cssbuy etc? which is the cheapest?
>>74762355>Corona virus cannot survive without a host for more than 72h.That's bullshit pulled out of your ass, there's no studies on this yet, and it's a known fact that SARS/MERS could survive for much longer than that. Can it last for 1-2months it sometimes takes for shit to arrive? Probably not, but still it's very likely it might be able to survive a week or even two.
Got a bunch of small Yanwen/Cainiao stuff today which I had ordered back in November. Over the weekend would've been 15 days after automatic confirmation on Ali and the final time to open dispute ( I think) so just in time for the chinks.
>>74762821Superbuy is amazing, I've ordered at least $2000 worth of stuff. I think cssbuy is very slightly cheaper but also slower and way less convenient for returns etc. Just go with Superbuy for the better service. If you're buying replicas (knives or brand clothing etc.) you won't be able to use their tax-free line. If your package is under 2kg I think you can just use registered air mail and declare it $20.

>you still gold/platinum user? there is no human rights under diamond tier
>>74765278Pretty sure I will drop from platinum to gold after the EU 2021 penalty.

>>7476536199% of my orders between $11 and $100 have been marked down to under $11.Only payed customs once in 6 years.What do you buy that is so troublesome?
>>74765402>have been marked down to under $11That means absolutely nothing. You have to prove price you paid.>What do you buy that is so troublesome?Anything to do with electronics or being slightly heavier/larger gets checked. Sometimes they just open it and crosscheck the prices online, sometimes I have to prove the price I paid.
>>74765433>You have to prove price you paid.I never had to do that, as of now, in northern EU they use the printed value on the box. After 2021 that will sadly change.
>>74765278All of my 11.11 disputes went through and I'm a measly platinum.
>>74764606Noted, thanks anon
>>74765151Sure, if you want, they won't work as professional camera lens, but they do what they're supposed to do. I have macro lens mostly and shit really do works. Of course, it depends too on your phone camera quality too, if you already have a high end phone with high end camera, these won't do much most of the time. I have an average smartphone so these work just right for me.This one's taken with a x12 macro lens, normally my camera gets blurry if I try to shot things this close but with these chink lens I can do it like a high end phone would. I also have a x24 one that I haven't used much.
apology for poor englishwhen were you when jack ma dies?i was sat at home eating smegma butter when pjotr ring‘csg is kill’‘no’
YESYEEEES CORONA VIRUS HERE I GO
>>74765977same shot but with the x24 lens taken just now, I feel like this one lens works better on flat pictures than on objects, but it still does what it should
>>74766227Which one did you got
>>74764029I had something similar happen a while back.>Order HDD docking station from Amazon >a few day later I get a message from Amazon that the can't fulfill my order for unstated reasons, and they are refunding me>immediately order another one because I really needed it>the next day I get a notification that the canceled item has shipped>wtf.vob>recieve two docking stations in the mail a week or two later
>>74764029>dvdWhat year is this?
>>74766082Remember to share some with your fellow amigo
>>74766253x12https://aliexpress.com/item/32630635421.htmlThis one's for both close up macro pictures and panoramic pictures. (remember to detach the wide lens if you plan to take macro pictures).x24https://aliexpress.com/item/32692649518.htmlThis one's just for macro pictures. If you're interested in lens for small things only, pic this one, its x24 because is one x12 on top of another x12, which is also detachable so you can chose how much zoom you want.Here's the thing in action, on a watch, these are the best results I can get before it starts to get blurry.
>>74766513last thing, normally, for macro shots with a phone you'll have to put the lens close to what you want to photograph, if you buy the x24, you'll have to put the lens really close to what you're trying to photograph, like real close, almost on top of it or else it gets blurry, there are better lens that allows for more distance when taking the pic, but these are more expensive. Take this like practice for when you buy a real camera, you will already know how to take macro shots, of course, real cameras also allows for more room when taking the shot so you won't need to put it so close to what you're trying to shot, like you do with these phone lens, which is also why these lens costs like ten bucks and a real camera lens go up to x10 of that price.

If one in a billion survives it doesn't mean that you get sick. It's unclear how many viruses need to be in your body to cause an infection.

Opinions and recommendations on this?https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32730953194.html
wtf is wrong with the stock market? aliexpress looses millions everyday because sellers don't even ship their products and the prices are still stable.
>>74752874Has anyone who ordered shit after the kung flu lockdowns received their stuff? has it even shipped?
>>74766830ThisCorona-chan is not that lethal per se. It's the lack of medical treatment that kills people. If you are poor and in wuhan you are fucked because all the hospitals are collapsedSource: 600 infected overseas, only 3 deaths (80+ yo)

I made the terrific decision to order an oral b toothbrush off UK amazon even though I live in EU. Turns out plugs are different (wow who knew)I had a look around and apparently these things cost 15€ to buy separately.Are there any chink oral b chargers that won't burn down my house?
>>74767456No idea but my Xiaomi electric toothbrush still works great after two years and replacement heads are cheap.
hey guys, as someone without a credit card (europe, pretty unusual to have one here still), what is the best option to pay on aliexpress?need some nfc tags, and amazon&ebay offerings are twice as expensive
>>74767569>pretty unusual to have one here stillAre you Greek? It is VERY unusual for Europeans not to have a debit or credit card.
>>74767633enjoy your (((debt))) and (((fees)))
>>74767569been using a reloadable visa for a few years (lol get fucked gearbest cc# leaks) without problem.
>>74765213dis nigga never held up a camera against a telescope or binoculars to take a long-distance photo
>>74767719I have no debt and pay no bank fees. The bank actually pays me money to stay with them. You are missing out dude.
>>74767886I don't know which country you live in, but here there are no credit cards without fees (yearly at least, some monthly) here, so...
>>74767956Is that safe? I don't want my bank account to get #chinked
>>74767954debit cards and credit cards are differentmaestro is debit, mastercard is credit as an example>>74768062it's really weird, in almost all places I use my debit card, I have to use this weird device to confirm the payment every single time, except for amazon, where it automatically keeps working after you do it once.I don't know if that means you can get CHINKED but I assume so.Just keep an eye on your bank transfers & remove your card immediately after using it (which I do on all websites regardless)>>74767534wish I heard about that thing before I bought mine, for some reason nobody talks about it
>>74768062No of course it's not safe, aliexpress are constantly stealing money from everyone in this thread, but we never mention it for some reason.
>>74768062It's as safe as a credit card.
>>74768134A debit card is more safe than a credit card because nobody can ever withdraw a larger sum than there is in the account.I use a debit card online and a credit card in my wallet.
>>74758852Unlikely, but I do decontaminate my packages from china with rubbing alcohol when it does arrive to be sure
>>74761447Do you have a good sharpening kit for me?I have a decent kit from spyderco, but I'd like some whetstones to make sharpening quicker
>>74768347I would recommend this one, the one I got last year is non-magnetic stainless.Use diamond plates, the cheap orange stones are garbage.You only need grit #240, #500 and leather with green stropping compound.
What the fuckI didn't even write anything
>>74768582I got "scuba mask" but never look at swimming stuff.Also it is too cold outside.
>>74768573The leather and stropping compound I haveThanks for the suggestion, I'll keep the grit in mind
>>74768573Are chink stones a bad idea
>>74768696If you are referring to the Chinese stones in this picture, then absolutely. They crack, gets gummed up and worst of all the grit numbers are way off (400, 800 and 1500 are almost the same grit, the 80 grit crumbles too fast).The kit I made was overkill, don't buy so many diamond plates, just 2 or 4 different grits.

>>74768290If someone nigs money from your debit card, you don't get it back. If someone nigs your credit card, you file a complaint and get it back. That's why credit cards have a 3%ish fee and some stores don't accept credit card because of processing fees.
>>74767719Do you know what a debit card is?
Is sq12 still the best hidden camera? Figure there has to be a better one released.
>>74770147>If someone nigs money from your debit card, you don't get it back.what makes you say that, because it's incorrect
>>74754382Yeah. I want to order a bunch of pro-democracy stuff to get printed. It’ll be hilarious the see the factory get shut down.
>>74770147If someone steal my debit card he can only get enough money to fill the tank of his car.If he uses my credit card he can buy a new car. Sure the bank or car dealer would get the short end of the stick, but I would also be dragged through the mud some way or the other.
China has a higher GDP PPP than America, and has done for years.Meaning in real terms, the average Chinese middle class person has a greater spending power than the average American middle class.
>>74770491You can get some money back in stolen debit card information cases, but it's much harder and your liability (read deductible) is often upwards of $500, meaning if they stole $2k, you may still be on the line for $500. Canceling a credit card fraud payment and getting paid is a breeze in my experience. The three times I reported something on my Amex, it was literally no questions asked and I got it all back. This is assuming USA. Also, what checking account lets you keep such a low balance? Most checking accounts require at least $500 balance before stealing your money from you on a monthly basis. And of the thief overdraws your $39 checking account balance on his big gas tank, you get charged another $30 in (((overdraft fees))).
this conversation is idiotic. cash is anonymous. cards are not
Is tech jesus chink pilled? He's been reviewing a lot of chink hardware lately.
>>74770799Yeah, I don't know about other country, but America has a bunch of different protections and restrictions across different forms of equity. Often there are times where it's simply incorrect to use one form of payment over the other or to have money in one form of equity in a ways that don't make intuitive sense unless you're familiar with all the regulation and history behind it. I'm no expert myself, but basically Credit Cards have insured themselves against petty fraud complaints like this because incentivising loyalty in customers who have several options in credit cards to use is so important. Whereas banks focus on legal responsibilities and protections for far larger sums for clients who tend to have large sums of money with them for long periods of time. Put simply, they are not optimized for dealing with dollar transactions.
Can anyone recommend canvas shoes?So many of them don't have big enough sizes. In US I'm around an 11.5 or 12, but sellers don't sell shoes that size.
>>74770799Sounds like your bank just sucks. My credit union calls me to clear certain low-dollar purchases for fraud protection, rejects purchases that would overdraw my account, and doesn't have checking account fees.Maybe look into a better bank, Anonymous...
>>74772160But the entire point of allowing customers to use credit cards in the first place is in order to give them the opportunity to overspend and be charged interest on their impromptu loan. That's how they can afford to give out credit bonuses. If they prevented you from overdrawing then they'd be losing out on a big cut of the money to be made. Unless your country has legislation preventing that in the first place.
>>74767456An adapter should cost you pocket change in nearest home appliance store.
>>74767456yeah this >>74772664, you're on 240V anyhow so it won't make a difference
>>74772290>But the entire point of allowing customers to use credit cards in the first place is in order to give them the opportunity to overspend and be charged interest on their impromptu loan. That's how they can afford to give out credit bonuses.Not even remotely accurate. This is a myth perpetuated by people outside of the industry, but the fact is credit cards make money from transactions and transaction volume. While certain twistings of the data says "you only did X out of line yet you overpaid Y" tries to sell the idea that they make most of their money from delinquents, but those ignore the costs associated with tracking those people down and the fact that some simply can't be tracked down and will result in losses. The reality is that credit cards simply can't make money on people who they can't trust will pay back their bills. And the old axiom of "money is worth more now than later (because I could have grown now money for later)" is no less true just because it's other people's money and that's how credit operates.
>>74772664>>74772678>>74767456Don't buy an adapter.Instead cut off the UK plug and replace it with a local one.
>>74772719Yeah but A: the new plug will cost more than the adapter, and B: you can't buy euro plugs as easily as you can brit plugs; people aren't expected to be able to terminate their own plugs like they are/used to be in the UK. But there's no need to cut the cable if it's got a UK plug on it, as they can just be unscrewed IIRC.
>>74772925I've replaced all the plugs on my portable devices, even ones with europlugs already, with these fuckers. Might seem overpriced but I think it was worth it.
Recommend me decent wireless mouse. The bigger the better.
>>74772925In some countries (I know this about Switzerland for sure) it's illegal to have permanent installations with adapters. If you have a house fire, your insurance might not pay.
>>74772664>>74772678don't know how comfortable I feel with having an adapter in the bathroom, for some reason I feel like it's more dangerous than just having a socket in the wall.I was looking into getting https://www.amazon.de/dp/B076WX8KZG/ though>>74772719I was considering putting into my post that I'm a pussy when it comes to electronics. [spoiler]even though I had and passed two semesters of electronics shit in college[/spoiler]The soldering kit we have is absolute garbage and we don't really have any "testing equipment" other than one of those combined V/A/Ohm meters so i'm afraid of blowing up my house more than the chinks would>>74772925I could probably find some dumb old shit that's either broken or we no longer use.
>>74773052These plugs are great. But they cost $2.5 a piece locally, more than some chink shit to use them with
are xiaomi phones botnetted by CCP?
>>74773248Good point. In most cases I wouldn't worry too much if it's a low-power device, and if it isn't a permanent installation (like my EU-AU adapter on my camera battery charger) even better.The every-purpose adapters are kinda dodgy because of how big the holes are and how some of them might not be covered up by a small EU plug, so I'd definitely want to get an adapter that's specifically UK to EU.>>74773371>bathroomYeah fair enough, I'd make sure it's not loose in the socket and is on an RCD socket.>linkDo you germans have the male ground pin on the middle of the socket or the metal ground thing on the bottom edge? It's not a bad-looking one, but I'd still consider buying an actual socket since they're usually more rigid than adapters.>soldering kitSelf-terminated plugs (like these: >>74773052, or any other shape) almost always just have screw terminals in them, no soldering required. Be nice to put ferrules on the wires but it isn't a necessity. The result is much more water resistant than using an adapter, so I'd definitely consider it. Look at what your local hardware store has in stock.

>>74772118ive seen some sellers offering feiyues up to 47/12.5
>>74770147I never paid a single penny for all 3 of my credit cards. Maybe my third Amazon one is kinda borderline because you need prime for it. But I get percentage for ever purchase from my Amazon card and pay only the student fee for prime anyway.
>>74777820Right, you don't pay card fees (unless you have some Gucci point card crap), the vendors do. Visa, MasterCard, etc charge the store a percentage of the purchase. This, interest (ifyou don't pay off your whole card every month), and selling your transactional data is how the credit companies make money.

My garlic press came, Yanwen shipping was slow, 7 days before deadline.It is larger than expected. Not as practical as a normal garlic press, but the reason I go it was I have broken too many in the past and this one cant break.It is "stainless", but not Austenitic stainless like good quality kitchen utensils.
