Will these make it to the U.S.?
I just ordered this along with a Ego-vv, charger, Vivi Novas, Replacement Coil Heads, Silica wick, and some resistance wire. With all that is going on do you think this shipment will make it to the U.S.? I'm in Hawaii Btw

Yes my friend just received two ego kits the other day with pre-made coils and juice. Here in Georgia =D

Edit: It took a 3 weeks though because of HK post

hkp officially banned lith-ion batteries today on the 25th of october. So, i would be a little hesitant to order anything battery related.

Thanks Guys!
I guess I might be out of luck since my order still hasn't shipped, but I'll take a chance instead of canceling my order just to see what happens. Does everything ship out of HKP? USPS First Class was my shipping method.

You may have been just in time getting in your order from reading what I just read
I NEED a bunch of Evod and other ego batteries. Had planned on ordering tomorrow. (Home is North Carolina)
hmmmmmm shoulda woulda coulda
Whatcha think?

USPS
Delay - A few days, no online tracking info until inspection scan.
"Normal" cylindrical batteries - officially banned, but few returned packages
Built in batteries - officially banned, but few returned packages

Yes everything ships HK post USPS to the US


If they didn't ship it I would cancel the EGO's until they lift the restriction. You can still get other items though. Just nothing with batteries.

@diane_jessica

It's up up to you.

I don't think I would risk it as it probably means they will be rejecting more items now. I am sure they are gearing up for the holidays and will be swamped.

I don't think I want my money tied up for weeks or months.

I'll wait till after the holidays or wait to see if others get there stuff in the coming weeks.

Me myself I stocked up on what I need for now and have others sources for other things if I need even though I may pay more it will still be way cheaper then cigarettes =D

I guess I'll be guinea pig, if worst comes to worst I'll get refunded for the ego's and be forced to buy from another vendor since I don't own any, I only have kr808's and a vendor here sells the same ego kits with a case for $100 so most likely I'll buy from ebay. I just checked ebay and a U.S. seller has ego twist kits for $18.45 free shipping, the listing says only at that price for the next few hours if anyone wants to jump on it.
