    Is Diavolo out of business?

    Does anyone know if Diavolo went out of business?

    Long story short I bought a lot of stuff from them 5.5.20 and once I finally got it several months later, the mini 16v polisher came with no battery and I`m missing the actual necessary pieces to even connect the corded one to a rotary device or even my ibird. So I have a whole bunch of worthless stuff I was super excited for last summer.

    Their phone number online/website is no longer valid. For a while I was completely inactive and now it is a total different company.

    I have sent messages to them on IG FB and multiple emails with no luck.

    I have been searching for the battery alone to purchase to no avail. Its sold on their website but I think you can guess my current level of trust with this company.

    I figure I could buy the $30 nano adapter kit from somewhere else and hope it comes with my missing pieces to at least hook the long corded one to my ibird but that doesnt resve my battery issue.

    I haven`t found anything about them being out of business but I want to believe that is the only logical explanation here, because they totally took me for almost $200 on lots of stuff I cant even use unless I develop gadget hands or something.

    DiavoloUSA.com appears to have a site up and ready to do business.

    That`s the site I bought everything from. Thy the phone number on there and you`ll find it`s no longer theirs.

    They don`t reply to any social media or email. On their fb page the only comments you can see are what appear to be people who have been done wrong as well but those posts are from 2019.

    I`ll admit I didn`t go and search their social media last May when I purchased as the website was active and appeared legitimate.

    I had no issue with the several month delay on getting my order due to the times last year but I also didnt expect it to be missing literal key parts to operate the items purchased.

    My credit card company had already passed the 90 day dispute a charge timeframes months before I even got my order.

    I cannot remember the owners name but he moved the company from AZ to MN last winter.

    I remember that being his justification for the delay in shipping, but he was mentioning the move in the middle of the summer. I`m just wondering why he turned into a ghost.

    The fact that there is no physical mailing address or person to contact within their website is very suspect.
    IF the owner is in Minnesota as alleged, it is time to contact the Minnesota State Department of Commerce or its Department of Consumer Affairs and find out if they have even registered there. Chances are if not, they no longer exists or are in some type of financial or legal viability.
    Let us know what you find.
    By the way, their website is not secure according to my Norton virus software, just for your information.

    I would settle for finding that battery for sale but it looks like it is specific to their charger and I`m definitely not purchasing anything from their site again.

    I`m not looking to enact any legal means as I do have 95% of what I bought. Ironically a battery powered device does not function minus the battery.

    And even the little cord attachment doesnt hook up to anything without the adapter.

    Is it the one that kinda looks like an ibrid? If so looks very similar to spta and Adams old micro polisher. They’ve both seem to been updated. Maybe Diavolo was making and now out of business?

    Try looking up the adams old Micro swirl killer, if same see if Adams has any batteries they can sell you.

    Take the cover off the battery pak and google the part numbers on the batteries inside. A little soldering to take them apart and solder the new ones in.
