    My 5 x Lemo2 s arrived from HG yesterday, took 15 days.
    Was happy with that.

    At $5 each was a steal. :thumbup:

    Happened to me before. Turned out my Neighbour had signed for me. Might want to check with them. Hope you get it in your hands soon.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that Kay :(
    This is why I don't like signature on delivery as an option, as well as if no one is home then you get carded, anyone can sign for a parcel without ever showing ID & once a signature is gained the postie has done their job. In other words it's not a lot safer than leaving a package at the door.
    Hoping your parcel ends up in your hands mate.

    My Zeus is in Sydney :D

    Arrived at facility in destination country column time and date, 04:21am Thu 30 Nov column location, SYDNEY NSW
    Processed through facility column time and date, 03:17pm Mon 20 Nov column location, BEIJING (CN)
    Received by overseas carrier column time and date, 05:19am Sun 19 Nov column location, CN-100006, CHINA

    Sent via Australia "Expresss" e-packet, it's taken a lot of time (11days) just to get to Oz, often it is around 4-5 days using this shipping method.
    Anyhow, this is the 2nd one that has arrived in Oz first (Gunmetal color), which was sent a day after the Black one.
    So this just shows how random shipping times can be, 2 parcels using the same shipping method, sent a day apart, from the same vendor & the parcel sent second has landed first...

    Well, my missing Drone mail just rocked up..

    A postie, in a van, visited me and said that the parcel showed up this morning at his depot. The parcel had been opened. I told him to write down his comments and note that the parcel had been opened; he failed to note down the second part. Before inspecting the parcel, I thought I'd do Super Vape Store the courtesy of update. I was surprised when when the rep asked me "So, why are you telling me?" When I explained that I'm doing him a courtesy as I thought they were as equally concerned for the missing mail as I was, then the rep changed his tune.

    I have now inspected the contents. They're all there and appear to be fine. All are still sealed, except for the VG and PG which I suspect had no seals to begin with.

    For next part I am still debating with myself on what to do. Either way, I think I have to give Aus Post a hard time as I do not wish for it to happen again..

    Edit/Update:
    I gave Aus Post a call to give an update and request for further investigation surrounding the failed delivery on 29th. Will have to wait and see if they do anything. They also told me the parcel did not require a signature, which is strange as Super Vape Store told me: "All our mails require signature on delivery." I've checked the parcel and true enough it doesn't say signature required. Hmm..

    Glad you got it all eventually mate, as it was opened, I think it is likely it arrived at someone else's place, they probably had no clue what it was lol

    The attitude of that rep, initially, is not one of someone I'd want working for me by the sounds of it. Seems to me like, they were expecting a complaint from you & were ready to fob you off...

    AusPost won't investigate too hard, I don't think, your package arrived, eventually. To them that's job done.


    So an update to my post.
    My Black Zeus arrived in Sydney about 10 hours after the Gunmetal Zeus.
    Now the question is, will they both arrive here on the same day?

    Edit: just checked tracking again, now they are apparently in 2 different locations :confused:

    Gunmetal: Processed through Australia Post facility column time and date, 09:06am Fri 01 Dec column location, GREENACRE NSW
    Black: Processed through Australia Post facility column time and date, 10:14am Fri 01 Dec column location, GRANVILLE NSW

    Surely, if they are both being sent to Perth they should be at the same holding area?
    Both said "arrived in Sydney", so I assume that means Sydney airport, why then would they be sent to 2 different AusPost locations for holding for transport, by air, to Perth?
    A bit strange but I still think there's a good chance they could arrive on the same day.

    Thanks Noe. Truth of the matter is I have been caught off guard by the whole debacle. I was even considering on rejecting the opened mail today. On the positive note I did receive it and its contents appear to be not tampered with. On the negative note, I have to reconsider my delivery method of my future purchases. I wish things could have been simpler, as they have been in the past, and I could bury my head in the sand.

    Email came yesterday telling me my S-body, VapeDroid C3D1, DNA250 mod has shipped!
    I know I probably won't have it by xmas, even though I opted for the upgraded shipping option (Express e-packet), where at a normal time of year I would, I think I'll have it just after New Year's day most likely.

    Not the same shape as I am used to for a 3 cell mod & quite different to my other DNA250 device (below) but it was about 1/2 the cost with the same DNA250 chip installed, making it cheaper than purchasing the DNA250 alone (honestly I don't know how it can be this cheap). So even if I don't like the mod I'll have a spare DNA250 chip which I could use for repairing my current DNA250 mod(if needed) or for modding into another mod.

    Just received a notice from 3FVape that my Gbox 200W has been shipped. Yay!

    Sent from a galaxy phone, far, far away.
