    I'm in need of some batteries (just ordered a Chuck!) and the place to get them seems to be dealextreme.com

    Just wondering if anyone can tell me how long they usually take to ship to the UK? It's probably going to be at least 2 weeks before my Chuck arrives so I'm not in a major rush, but obviously if it's going to take a month I'll have to think again.

    Deal Extreme are in china so I presume it would take around the same time? I can actually get what I want from the UK but they cost a lot more. Just trying to weight up the cost vs shipping time really. :)

    I have bought a few items off of deal extreme and was very suprised at how quick they arrived. 3 seperate orders and they all arrived within 7 - 10 days inc weekends, not bad but they were free shipping too! :D

    Be careful about the quality of the batteries from DX though, I bought some lithium button cells and they were not very good at all. I guess you get what you pay for! :(
