    When I order from a Chinese vendor I expect to wait about 20days on the average. I order about 3 to 4 orders a month. From my experienced Fastech & 3FVape is quite consistent with their shipping. The delay is normally as I understand is the postal service & the customs. I have had orders from fastech & 3FVape at my doorsteps within 2 weeks latest 25days after order was placed. Focalecig seems to shipped little bit slower.
    The worst is Gearbest, it takes them 2 weeks to shipped out half the order on their in stock products. Haven't shipped the other half yet. On Pre-order in Gearbest, do it if you are willing to wait at least a month after their schedule date but they

    My longest was 9 days to clear customs, and I average around three weeks from placing the order to getting to my mailbox.

    Yup. Even though all I order from them these days are drip tips, o-rings, and other bits and pieces, I don't even bother looking at the tracking information until about a week after I get the shipping notification email.

    Fasttech is Fasttech. If I want something quick I certainly do not order from there. But I have no problem waiting for Fastech because I can count on 2 1/2 weeks with their expedited shipping. I order something with batteries I know I am in a 4-5 week waiting period. All is good because I know the waiting times going in. CHEERS!

    I needed some some batteries and other stuff so I did an experiment. Place two orders on 8/8 which was a Saturday night. One was a Derringer clone, the other was a four pack of Samsung 18650-25R's and an istick 50 (Yeah, I know but crossing fingers!). Got the shipping notice for the batts and istick which comes with free express shipping because of the batteries, the tracking kicked in yesterday showing New Jersey as the origin and a delivery date of 8/15. The Derringer shipping notice came today, 8/12, no tracking yet.

    Yea, I could not see ordering a single item from FT to save a few dollars andd wait weeks.
    I usually order a Dozen or more things at once spending $70-$100 and saving close to that much>>>>>>>>>>>>>> That is worth the wait.

    One time a no show but got credit for it after two months waiting. Other times three weeks or two or less if i get the updated shipping.

    Usually two weeks, almost to the day. Three or so if I order anything with e liquid or a battery.

    I did get an order yesterday that took exactly 7 days from order date to delivery, though... definitely the quickest FT shipment I've received.

    2-4 weeks depending on if it has to be sent via Singapore post or not (which takes longer). I never order anything that isn't listed as "in stock' or "ships next day". Anything else means they don't actually have it in stock as far as I can tell.

    Not only is the item NOT in stock, they are relying on projections from the manufacturer. Often they're pretty close to right, but sometimes "Ships in 7 days" turns into "we're not really sure if this will ever show up in our warehouse".

    Given stuff is in stock and it's outside any Chinese holiday, the norm for me is 8-14 days, I'd say. Would likely be 8-12 days if weekends didn't mess things up. Parcels don't move in the domestic postal system between Friday afternoon and Monday morning.

    Just as a sidenote: Being somewhere between the US and China - I get roughly the same shipping times from both. It's not "Chinese shipping" or "US shipping". It's International shipping. Unless it sucks, it's generally a week or sometime during the second - from (mostly) anywhere to anywhere. If it's good, it's within the week. Pay extra and it's next day/the day after.

    Ok I gave them a third chance on something I didn't care about ..extra coils.

    the first two orders ..they got wrong and six and 7 weeks respectively.

    now this lil caveat..I paid the extra buck forty for USPS and it was here in 6 days. :p
