On July 2nd I bought a battery for my Dell DJ on eBay from the seller battery.search who has a feedback score of 9122 with 98.9% positive feedback which is a pretty good. That’s the only reason I bought my battery from them.
They told me in the confirmation email that it would take anywhere from 7 to 20 business days which means I could wait a month for the battery to come. It has clearly been over a month and still no battery.
I contacted that seller yesterday telling them that I am still waiting. The only thing I can think of is that the shipment was taken from Customs and never released because it shipped from Hong Kong. But why would customs take the battery and never release it? It’s a harmless battery that isn’t even charged when it ships out. When it arrives I have to charge it fully because it won’t work right out of the box.
So the sellers response to me is “can I refund to you???” My response was NO, I don’t want a refund, I want my battery. I’m afraid that if they give me a refund then my battery shows up tomorrow and they are out $15 but on the other hand if it never shows up then I’m out $15. So, after they asked me a 3rd time I responded with a yes, I would like a refund. But if it shows up then I will issue them a refund lol.
So now I’m back at square one where I was a month and a week ago, with no battery for my Dell DJ and now I don’t want to buy another one because they are all coming from freakin’Hong Kong. Aren’t there any sellers in the US who sell batteries for the 2nd gen Dell DJ?
I guess the only thing I can do is if I ever want to ride my bike with tunes, bring my PSP with me. It really sucks because I’m so paranoid I’m going to break it. The Dell DJ is old enough that even though I don’t want it to break I would feel worse if my PSP broke. I’m sure the Dell DJ is tougher than a PSP is so I never worry about it.
The Dell DJ battery was my reward for losing my first 27lbs and I never got my reward which sucks. So since I’ve decided to start wearing jewelry early which would’ve been my 2nd reward for losing another 25lbs, I guess my rewards have switched. Although now I have to change my 2nd reward to something else, I think a Kindle would be something I can change that to.
