Fastest shipping to US
Aside from DHL, which shipping method is truly the fastest to US? I know logic would say Speadpost EMS would be the fasted to the US, but I am over 2 weeks (15 days) now waiting for EMS and have received items faster with the standard free USPS. My last 2 Singapore Post took 21 and 25 days. Even when I choose USPS my orders are getting shipped Singapore, and I do not order batteries from Fasttech. Any feedback would greatly be appreciated.

I switched mine back to USPS Hong Kong. I'm in Chicagoland area. SG post took over 1 month on 3 packages then switched to HK and last HK order took 16 days from date of order placed. The HK package got here a week earlier than all 3 SG packages and order was placed a week after.
*no batteries or liquid in any of the packages. One SG package was only 2 drip tips.
Sittin' in the clouds

E-packet/China Post is fastest if you are not ordering batteries or liquid.

Registered Airmail Singapore Post which is RQxxxxxSG tracking is fastest and bypasses the city/state/country of Singapore IF you want batteries or eliquids (NOT USPS First Class which starts initially with SG Post and goes to Singapore and is LKxxxSG tracking#)

My last 2 epackets took 12 days, that was with 8 days stuck at isc NY. Still seems like fastest free ship, Thill is correct it seems about sgp, regular registered airmail seems to use local po to get to sgp and usps seems to use Quantium to sgp which takes about 10 days. Sgp isn't any slower than hkp it seems, except that when you use usps and Quantium bikes it to Sing lol

To edit: my hkp packages have taken 6-12 days but they may not accept any packages for no reason other than shaped anything near a battery. Hkp is a gamble now.

I've ordered a ton of stuff from fastteck and found there's really no fastest shipping (other than DHL of course) They're all a crapshoot though. Even the dreaded international airmail which regularly takes six weeks got an order to me in under two weeks one time. Just shows how inconsistent service outside the US can be. Go figure.
Go Seahawks !

As of lately since making that post, it seems epacket USPS/China Post has been the best, averaging 10 days to Florida, Usually 4-5 days to get to US once shipped, then the rest of the time is on USPS. HKP is horrible for me, I've had packages "disappear" for over 30 days due to "security screening". Even my last DHL order "accidentally" got shipped HKP, I was not pleased.
