You could contact Vapcell Official via AliExpress to see if they can adjust the price. They might ask you to make an order without paying. They can adjust the price of the order rather than try to adjust the listing.

To make an unpaid order, I changed the payment method for my account from debit card to Paypal. I didn’t authorize AliExpress for automatic payments via Paypal so this step is manual. When I checkout and go to pay, the app redirects me to Paypal. I go back instead of paying. And the order goes into an “Unpaid” state.

Just trying to order a big amount of batteries incl. T50. I hope customer service can help me quickly to adjust shipping costs before T50 is sold out.

BTW: What kind of buttons do you use for button top 18650 batteries? I want to order 4x Molicel P26A and 4x Samsung 30QT, all with button top. I hope these buttons will not significantly increase internal resistance. I once bought some batteries elsewhere with joint-welded buttons and these became loose too easily and were of very bad quality.

Place an unpaid order and ask them to add/remove items and adjust price? I did this about 10 hours ago and customer service replied quickly. Smile

Thanks for the great hint. I just did it as you suggested. But I ordered and paid a pair of the T50 separately ($ 1.04 additional for shipping) now. Seeing there are only 4 pairs left kind of made me nervous...haha. LOL

On 11/11, I wanted to buy some batteries and ran into trouble. When I had everything together, I saw there was shipping on each battery added to the cost, inflating the price to something not very attractive. Sorry, I haven’t read all postings in this thread so don’t know if there was a solution. Did I do anything wrong? I’d like to use the next opportunity this month, probably buying not as many batteries as I got some meanwhile elsewhere, but still a few.

Hi Unheard

You can contact Ali-express customer service and tell her you are a BLF member

She can give you a better total fee

Because of the high freight rates in some remote countries, customer service personnel have added extra surcharges

Express platform can’t help customers save the freight of multiple products intelligently

Therefore, it is better to communicate manually

Thanks

last time i contacted the customer service about customizing an order, the shipping fee went up, AND the price doesnt even make sense.

before contact:

shipping: less than $2
s4+ with 4 × 30Q = $59
s4+ with 4 × 40T = $63

after contact:

shipping: more than $7
s4+ with 2 × 30Q and 2 × 40T = $87

tell me how this makes sense?? even if i let the shipping thing slide, wouldnt you expect the price for 2 × 30Q and 2 × 40T be somewhere between 59 and 63???

AE informed me that Vapcell just ‘accepted’ the price upon my inquiry, but the bill has changed slighly. I got a discount of 2,63 EUR, ending up in 8 something shipping cost for three batteries. nkon.nl has very similar prices but much lower shipping costs, so they’re cheaper in total.

If you would like to know…

Vapcell 50G = re-wrapped Samsung INR21700-50G2

Vapcell T50 = re-wrapped Samsung INR21700-50S

This Samsung 50S cell is the best-performing 5000mAh 21700 seen so far. It’s rated as 20A (without temperature cut) / 35A (with 80℃ temperature cut).

I would love to order some more T50 batteries but i.a.w. tracking (Post Lithuania?) it seems mine have not even left China after two months of waiting. Probably, they take the slow boat trip around the globe. I hope these will arrive anytime soon. Did Vapcell send some to HKJ for testing? Is it confirmed that there is a Samsung 50S underneath the shrink?

I would also be interested in buying the Vapcell S4+ charger. Dennis, any more updates planned for this charger, e.g. even lower termination current than 50mA? Too many chargers complete charging batteries at less than 4.20V, leaving them at a resting voltage of 4.12V - 4.16V. I find several listings of the S4+ charger on your shop but which one is the latest version?

FWIW, Vapcell tracking doesn’t update between shipping from China and arriving in my letterbox in Australia though usually 3-4 weeks not 2 months

Got some goodies from Vapcell today!
3 × 21700 T50
2 × 10440
1 Vacpell Q1 charger

All arrived well packed. I bought them on the 9th December, shipped on the 13th, arrived today (13th January).
Shipping was tracked through Post Plus (and some post related to Lithuania).

All items arrived well packed, so thank you Vapcell!
The Q1 charger takes unprotected flat top (and eventually unprotected button top) 21700s, but it won’t take protected 21700, such as a Wuben cell from the TO50R.
Just wanted to give the heads up on this.

The T50s arrived charged at 3.44V (I’m now charging 2 of them in the Astrolux BC2 and 1 on the Vapcell Q1 charger). The 10440s were charged up to 3.79/3.80V (will charge them later).

Have you tried this site for tracking?
https://postal.ninja/en

Normally it shows every movement, when 17track doesn’t. I’ve been using along with 2 other tracking apps and I like it a lot!

Vapcell INR 14500 C8 800mah 2A new arrival !!

Just wondering… why would anyone by a 800mAh 2A battery, if they can buy a 1000mAh 3A for probably a few cents more? I bought my gold Vapcells from nkon for about 3 euro per piece. I don’t see any reason why would I get a worse battery, unless I need hundreds of them so the savings would actually matter.

One reason I could think of, is if the lower rated battery has a much longer life cycles (ie. more charge/recharge cycles)… however, I’m not sure if that is the case for this battery…

Thanks for the link. In my case, 17track shows more information than postal.ninja.

I am not sure what to make of the information given below. AMS sounds like Amsterdam (Shiphol airport?) but ever since that time there was no more movement.

Yup, I too noticed that in this case, the 17track was showing information before the postalninja I linked.
I can tell that it was accepted on the 23rd December, then it was dispatched internationally on the 24th. After that I only got some notice on January 11th, when it was received in Lisbon. 2 days later I got information about distribution and delivery.

This was the first time I received a package through this LT posting, but so far I received it. Maybe yours got “stuck” in the airport meanwhile?

I hope so. Otherwise, there's a slight chance it was seized by German customs. Customs will not be able to charge me any import tax for it (value is below EUR 25.00) but still they are (over)cautious about lithium batteries from outside the EU. I do not want to imagine what will happen after July 2021 when European customs regulations will demand import tax as of EUR 0.01 total value. Facepalm

I hope not. Mine normally come with a yellow sticker mentioning “Goods not fulfilling…” (an EU regulation), but they arrive here.
Top values here is 20€ (I guess), but I normally pay only when things come from the US or from China through DHL or similar carrying services.

Didn’t know that about the new regulations. I guess I’ll buy all I need before that…or not Big Smile Facepalm

Hope you receive yours soon Thumbs Up

Obrigado MascaratumB. Smile I see these yellow stickers all the time and I wonder what the heck they complain about (manual in local language, CE sign, etc.). Never mind...

I guess you are right about the 20€. I guess those 25€ come from a minimum fee they need to charge you over here, so as long as it's below that number they will not charge anything.

I found this about the upcoming regulations...

https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/news/new-guidance-document-import-and-export-low-value-consignments_en

https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/business/vat/modernising-vat-cross-border-ecommerce_en

"(...) The introduction of the import scheme goes hand in hand with the abolition of the current VAT exemption for goods in small consignment of a value of up to EUR 22. This is also in line with the commitment to apply the destination principle for VAT. (...)"
