    Yeah yesterday night actually just after midnight I got this email:

    Detailed Invoice:

    Hi,
    We have already shipped out your order. The tracking number is
    EE339883591CN.
    Please read Shipping & Returns : Healthcabin Electronic Cigarettes - Wholesale and Retail for more
    information.Thanks.


    Your current order status is: Shipped
    ...
    ...
    ...

    I don't know if this a reply to the email I sent them yesterday asking for a status update or just a generic message they send to everyone when the order ships but after this I checked the invoice page and the status had changed to shipped so I guess it shipped out last night.

    It still has not shown up on the tracking site just yet. Damn public holday on monday looks like it will tues/wed next week the earliest.

    Thats pretty speedy onionpants - provided your not too far from Brissie it would only be 4 days from lodgement. My stuff always takes an extra day because they send them from Melb to Adel then 1/2 way back again (I live on the border, SA side). :confused:
    RY4 is pretty much my favourite too. I ran out the other week and made some up out of 555, Caramel & Vanilla - wasn't too bad but was lacking something.

    Here's my order's current status:

    Mar 9, 2010 3:03pm AUSTRALIA - Messenger Post VIC Received at delivery hub.
    Mar 9, 2010 7:24am AUSTRALIA - MELBOURNE Scheduled for delivery.
    Mar 7, 2010 3:08pm AUSTRALIA - SYDNEY Received and awaiting clearance for delivery.
    Mar 5, 2010 11:10pm CHINA - SHENZHEN EMS Processed - enroute to final destination.
    Mar 5, 2010 6:04pm CHINA Item lodged

    I've been at work all day (and still am) and I'm not sure if anyone's been home today so what does this latest update "Messenger Post VIC Received at delivery hub" mean? Has it been delivered or is it at my local AusPost office now?

    Since this is registered/tracked post, it requires a signiture right? What if no one is home do they leave a note indicating attempted delivery and instuct you to go pick it up from the Post Office?

    No experiance with EMS tbh...

    Oops, can't edit yet and I've just seen this post:

    I guess it hasn't been delivered yet... What are the odds of the order turning up before the end of the day?

    Grrrr. Now I'm getting this:

    Mar 10, 2010 6:06am AUSTRALIA - Messenger Post VIC Returned to delivery hub.
    Mar 10, 2010 6:05am AUSTRALIA - Messenger Post VIC Attempted delivery - address details incorrect or insufficient.

    I called the Oz Express Posts number at the bottom of the aus tracking site and they are saying that apparently there is a problem with the address and have assigned me an "investagator" who will chase up the issue and call me some time today but it wont be delivered today - It will be at least another day before it is delivered:mad::mad::mad:. Not happy Jan.

    I (re)checked the delivery address on the HealthCabin invoice and it is correct so I emailed Amy from HC. So now I don't know whether the error is with HC or the post here. Starting to get very frustrated :mad::mad::mad:

    Oh and I'm not allowed to pick it up from the delivery hub because that is a security risk apparently.

    Ok according to Amy from healthcabin the address is 100% correct. So i don't know exactly what or where the error is.

    The local post investigator got back to me and we reconfirmed the address and they rescheduled it for delivery tomorrow... fingers crossed :|:| it gets here.

    Same here, ordered from Health cabin and Eastmall, after my successful Heaven’s gift arrival (was sort of unexpected, as I didn’t think about it…pleasant surprise) ordered last week. I just cherry picked the best from each. I also added up how much I’ve paid in E-cigs in the last week, and it was WHOA! Lol.

    I’ll have to stay off analogs for another 7weeks, to break even! But I look forward to having a bath in E-liquid :).

    lol, I will have to vape for a few years to break even I reckon.

    Spending money on smoking was never this much fun!

    The wrong address issue was stupid. Everything was correct on the package in terms of addressing so I have no idea what the posts problem was with it.

    So 10 days all up with a public holiday and a day or two lost as a result of a stuff up. Not bad in the end.

    lol Kimmy. Yep happy as a pig in mud. I probably went overboard with the posting re the status of my order but it made the waiting feel a little better...:)

    I'm glad I bought the kits though. Now to some DIY juice experimenting...

    Yep! My break even point keeps moving up the timeline, but I love my new hobby. Smoking was just an addiction, this is much, much more interesting.

    This link might be useful next time your EMS parcel looks like it's not progressing out of China.

    Although the link comes up in Chinese, if you paste your tracking number into the 1st box and then press enter, hopefully your parcel's flight information will show up in the bottom boxes.

    EMSÓʼþ²éѯ

    It won't make your parcels arrive any faster but at least it gives you something to do while you wait :D

    Ordered a few supplies from HealthCabin that were shipped on 09/03/2010 and received them today 18/03/2010.

    9 Days in total - not bad considering it was Registered Airmail and NOT EMS!!

    Just received my order from Totally Wicked UK. Ordered last Thursday night and recieved today so that would be less than 7 full days. Thats better than china aint it. Loving the Tornado. I recomend it. The carts i got from TW dont give a good throat hit though anyone know what is good to mix to liq to give good throat hit? I am ordering some e liq from light in the box. Anyone know anything about them?

    if you're using a Tornado then all the carts would be the same, they're just plastic after all with polyfil. Try modding the carts so you get more of a throat hit/flavour!

    Do you mean changing the polyfil inside and use something else or just add diff e liq in them. I am thinking of mixing my own e liq does vg or pg give better throat hit?
