what is. typical shipping time from IOS

   I was just wondering if any one know what the average shipping time from International outdoors ,I ordered my emitters and drivers on November 1st and still nothing I think I might be getting spoiled by Fasstech and Solarcorce because bothe my orders this month got here to Arizona in 9 days or less and I am still impatiently awaiting my order from IOS So I was just wondering if this is typical shipping time ,thanks.

First order of a MT-G2, XM-L2, and wire took 21 days exactly. Going on day 22 for order #2. With RMM’s store coming up, doubt I’ll be ordering from IOS again.

Singapore Post takes approximately 3 forevers to get a package to the U.S. I think they use donkey caravans to send the stuff overland across Asia & Europe, and only then put the thing on an airplane.

My last order from IOS (using SingPost, of course) took something like 28 days, 25 of which was SingPost's part.

Before the li-ion shipping issues my average of 30++ packages from the following vendors were:

FT - 16,37 days

IOS -15,22 days

WB - 14,98 days

Stats are from 2013.

Now, WB packages are a slower than usual. Often at 20-30 days. IOS 20-30 days, but at the worst I had some that were uptowards 50 (September packages). FT.. still waiting for two packages ordered 45/72 days ago.. Who knows if they will arrive. Zero batteries.

Nowdays packages from various vendors are all over the place, 10 days to who knows...

I’m going to have a fun comparison coming up sometime in the next 2 months seeing whether Kaidomain shipping batteries through hong kong surface gets here first, or a normal, ridiculously slow IOS order.

Currently IOS averages 26 days for me.
Next to worst is DealExtreme at 20 days.
and FancyFlash at 18.

Relatively small sample sizes, though not much deviation.

3-4 weeks has been my experience, so you should get them any day now

pm him.

They have been utter useless in my experience but the freight companies are even worse.

It took 16 days for them to acknowledge my order after going public (emails never responded to) and then another 3 weeks once shipped.

Their goods however are excellent.

They all seem to be taking more or less the same amount of time, especially SG Post.

I’m waiting on 2 orders from IOS. The first was submitted on Nov 8, tracking indicates it has not made North AMerica yet.

In the meantime batteries that were ordered from Banggood on Nov 9 arrived here on Nov 21 via Malaysia. They were not packed very well, and I sent CS a note asking if they could revisit their shipping procedures and take steps to package batteries properly. They responded very quickly and said they would, so we’ll see what happens. BTW, I think one of the best ways to get sellers of batteries (like Banggood) on board is for as many people as possible to email their CS departments encouraging them to take proper shipping precautions when packaging batteries. I told them I’d happily pay for battery cases, as I suspect most BLF members would?

I will say that it was a really nice touch to receive the emitters inside a plastic film canister to protect them. Big props for that.

Months ago one of my first IOS orders the emmiters were also in a film canister, however there were a couple of potential problems, the lid had popped off due to obvious rough handling from postal equipment that had also worn a small hole right through the bubble wrap envelope. The hole was almost as big as the emitters, so they could have fallen out, but luckily they didn’t. I gave Hank a head’s up, and since then it looks like he’s been taping the film canisters closed.

Personally if it’s free shipping I have no reason to complain, my last IOS order was quick compared to FT etc

For me it has changed hugely since all these stuff arounds with the international post. I used to get orders the quickest from WB, then IOS and FT were the slowest. It seems now that WB and FT are about the same, both slow, and IOS is the slowest. But IOS has the best range of components, so I keep going back! haha

Speed really doesn't matter to me .I am comforted to know that ios is a solid player who will take care of any problems I have ..never track shipments  they come when they come and thats life .My guess is they are a little over 3 weeks .Like I said I'm comforted to know I don't need to start sweating a paypal dispute .Ilike dealing with a company that will take care of business .So far ios is 100% .thats rare for chinese vendors imho

What has always bothered me is when a vendor says that the parcel has been posted on a given date and when I receive the parcel 5 weeks later, I see that the real posting stamp date is 2 weeks later than what they claimed. I don’t mind waiting for processing time, but deliberately lying about the posting date is a no no.
Normally it takes 2-3 weeks for a parcel to arrive, so when it’s still not here after 5 weeks, I know something is not right.

I ordered a host and noctigon (no cells) on the 4th Nov – dispactched 5th Nov and still waiting. I know I should be patient but really would be happy to pay extra to receive things within 2 weeks in the future.

But the problem is, is this delay the result of the Chinese Postal Services, or IOS? Perhaps it may take 3 days to get the order out, but that still only represents perhaps 10% of the total shipping time we are commonly seeing reported.

Shipping time: Longer than everyone else.

The low mode should be lower.

Some chinese sites seem to hire a separate company to do the actual fulfillment / shipping. Fasttech has separate entity / company do it for them.
