Fastech - Surface Mail batteries 34 days to Australia

Shipped on 10th September, Arrived today (14th October)

I think that is good for surface mail

I was wondering how long it would take, and in fact, whether it arrives at all. And contemplating whether it was worth the extra bucks buying from an AU seller on that Bay website.

Don’t know if you noticed but Fasttech added Australia Expedited Shipping “aka Auspost with tracking”, starting from $2 extra, it allows batteries and knives, and from what I’ve seen it’s fairly reliable within 7-14 days. With this in mind Fasttech might be my new go to avenue for cheap batteries and such

For Canada, only had surface mail. Took 65 days. They also shipped the wrong batteries…

Sigh.
