Just checking on the status of the USA signed orders. I paid the extra charges on the 6th but it looks like there are still some on-going issues. What are the chances of getting these before the end of next week?

Thanks!

I would love to say that chances are great but it's more like none. Thing is buttons and COB leds are on their way from china with DHL but will still take couple of days to get them, then I have to rework all power bank cases to make pocket lights of them. And then pack and take to Croatia to send them out. This I have to do with all non-European overseas orders and some European, some standard and all signed for to US, Canada, Swiss, Australia, New Zeland, Japan,.... So by the time you wish to receive them I hope I'll send them out.

Today GLS came and some 60 or so EU orders went out. Still have to let recipients know tracking numbers but have to get home first. Will also let you know some stats on where we got so far.

And some of you are starting to receive their orders so I'll make quick video guide on how to open power bank case to get battery out.
Thanks for the update, guess I will need to go to plan B until the batteries arrive. I have been making a GameBoy Zero as a gift and was hoping to have everything 100% for the end of May when I need to present it :)

Thanks for all your hard work here!! It's crazy how strict shipping companies have gotten with the lipo batteries!

Are UK orders going out OK or are there issues with them as well?

All UK orders of multiple batteries are out. Ones fore just one battery are waiting for rework and delivery with Croatian post due to shipping costs.
Don't grow up.
It's a trap.

And to let you know few stats:
with last orders that went out today I'm up to 65% of orders shipped and rest will go once I get new components from China.
With contributions for shipping you got to 72% response. I'm still little short for covering all costs but I might get there eventually.
I will post video link on first page to guide for easy battery extraction so you are all left with whole cases for powerbank project ;)
Don't grow up.

I'm in UK and ordered one battery - but I got an email today with a tracking number from you :)

Was that a mistake? Or am I lucky?! :D

Did you order with signed for shipping? Because ones with standard shipping I believe are still with me.

THEY ARRIVED! :D
Batteries are here and looking mighty fine ;)
One is already undergoing capacity testing and size test fit has been done. Like mentioned before they are slightly thicker then sample pieces so bottom battery spacers have to be trimmed for proper fit.

Now I'm knee deep in packaging and preparing to send them out.

And as if all this preparation wasn't enough our national postal service dropped a b0mb on me... I called them about some shipping details and they told me they have just recently changed policy on devices with lithium batteries - they are BANNED from air shipments, just ground and sea :? :shock: :o :evil: I mean.....WTF ?!%#&@ are they kidding me? I have tons of orders to send out and now this? And since I can't do anything to change their mind it is like this at the moment: about 1/3 of orders are still good as they will go via road or sea. For remaning 2/3 I will have to go to foreign postal service, use foreign fulfillment company or 3PL company. For any of these solutions I hope it won't break my bank as quick search didn't find services as afordable as our postal service is.
So I will do my best this won't cause too much of aditional delays. Fingers crossed :roll:
Hi Dexter, my battery has arrived ad works fine. Thanks
