    I ordered 10 clearos, 10 evods, 100ml menthol juice ($8), VAMO V3 SS, and something else I forget.I placed my order on Tuesday the 6th, the next day i received a tracking number. And then the following day the tracking number registered on USPS dot com. It looks as if the package already cleared customs and is on its way to my house in Ohio. For all of you new members who wish to buy stuff from FastTech and are a little nervous about ordering from China, dont be. When I get my stuff I will come back here and let you guys know about the quality of the items. I hope the juice is good because you cant beat the price.

    Ditto, I've ordered twice and both arrived here in TX in 5 days. they are easy to deal with and reliable.

    I've heard of things stuck in SF...
    But my last order, which was fairly big for me, got to my door in California in 7 days flat...
    I've ordered some Dekang, on a whim, expecting it actually to be nasty - but I liked it enough to RE-order, and it's now in my "always keep it in stock" list. Just ordered more, and I'll be trying a couple Liqua flavors this time too...

    Been hit and miss for me. But I still use them. Everything I've gotten has been good quality.

    Some people are quite snobbish about "china juices" but really taste is always subjective. Dekang make 90% of the worlds ejuice by volume. That doesn't happen if it is all foul tasting stuff. I have liked the majority of their juice. Same with Liqua.

    Thought I'd chime in myself, just got my first FT order today, shipped next day from when I ordered and arrived here on the east coast in four (yes four, that's not a typo) days. Not weeks, days. Very impressed, and I had full tracking even after the San Fran 'black hole'. Not sure if I just got lucky or what, I didn't pay for any fancy shipping, think they upped me to USPS 1st class cause the order was over $25 or something, but still, I expected at least a week in transit plus customs.

    Lucky, average to US is 10-14 days.

    If you order less than ~$15 then standard free shipping is 30days without tracking, you can upgrade for less than a dollar but YOU have to change it as you check out. Above ~$15 then you are automatically upgraded to free tracked 10-14day shipping.

    No tracking through USPS anymore, new regulations according to Fasttech.

    No real change for me. Every order I've gotten from fasttech, the tracking froze somewhere in the middle and didn't update again until it said "delivered".

    When did this revolting development occur?

    Is there a link? I placed an order yesterday. It shipped last night, and USPS tracking code comes up showing it accepted at Hong Kong.

    i made two orders with fasttech on 8/12/13, one with just tanks/atomizers and the second with an SVD, batteries, charger, etc. the tank/atomizer order was about 8 days total. the svd order is still in Hong Kong (according to tracking) guessing it is stuck in customs.

    For some reason, anything with batteries in it seems to hang longer in Hong Kong. DOn't know why but, most of mine clear in 2 days, batteries 3-4 days before it leaves Hong Kong, but then it's just 2-3 more day to get to me depending on if it flies into San Fran or Shreveport (Shreve is faster.)

    Thats the key though...free shipping takes longer.

    I always pay the $1 for USPS shipping and get my crap within a week.

    My SVD has been stuck in Hong Kong since Sept 3rd, even though it shows "acceptance". I made the order on 8/26 along with an IGO-L and for some reason they split the order up on 9/2 and said my first order (the svd) would ship within 12 hours. Well, the second order(IGO-L) showed "acceptance" on 9/4 (a day after shipment #1) and is showing in Rochester, NY yesterday and will probably be at my doorstep tomorrow. Makes no sense whatsoever, and i have yet to get a response back from my ticket. Not a happy camper, and will probably take my business elsewhere even if it's going to cost me more.

    My package has been showing "acceptance" in Hong Kong since the 9th. I ordered on the 3rd and it was split into two shipments, the second shipment was just sent out today and still nothing on the USPS website. Yesterday I made a support ticket on FT website and still no response. I happened to break my Ego yesterday by dropping it in the supermarket, so I really hope my package is not lost. The package contains $200 worth of goods including an Innokin SVD kit, and its even more important now that I'm stuck using an almost dead v2 808 cig-like battery. Haven't had my nic fix for a day now and resorted to taking some menthol ejuice sublingually.
    The package did include a battery so I guess the crackdown got me.

    my order was stuck in hk under since the 5th. it just finally got approved and moving this morning. i have dealt with fasttech numerous times, and this is first time it has taken over 2 weeks to get to me. i do know it's because of the shipping of batteries crack down, but i also never order anything from them that i cant wait for.

    I have not ordered through fasttech, but i do know there is an issue with tightening regulations about sending batteries and liquid through Singapore post right now.. I guess its really taxing the Chinese postal system.

    The lesson here is split your orders up if they're over $15 - & pay attention to the "in stock" or "ships in x days" indicators on each item.. better to have 5 smaller shipments than one big one that hangs for whatever reason.

    FWIW, the "tracking" fastech includes isn't really like fedex or ups.. an item is often *not* scanned and will skip steps.. it might show the last scan in san Francisco, and appear in your mailbox the next day, without showing the regional sorting centers.. another item might scan three times in one day at various usps facilities..


    I've also started separating liquids from hardware.. about 50% of my liquid orders have had leaks - not much fluid, just enough to coat everything else inside the envelope..


    8 orders so far, and all have arrived safely in less than two weeks..
