I just ordered 3 new batteries for my b400 today and I'm wondering how long it will take to receive them. Anyone from the US order from dealextreme?? And if you did what was the delivery time?? I wanna plan some indoor time with a buddy of mine who is a high school teacher and can get me a gym to play in haha.

I've ordered from them several times, but the only batts I've ordered were for my Ipod. My last order was on the 7th. I ordered their glass blades. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to get to NY if that helps any.

yeah that helps cause I'm in Massachusetts. Just curious how long I would be waiting, thanks man. The shipping was free but I couldn't justify the upgraded 17 dollar shipping since for 5 bucks more I could have gotten another battery:YeaBaby:

Which batteries did you get? I have a set of the 2100mah and really like them. Much better than stock :thumbup: I have a set of the 2400mah on order but they must have had to back order them because it's been over a week and they still have not mailed them.:thumbdown:

I got the 2100 mah, the price was right. 65 bucks for three batteries, can't go wrong.

I have ordered alot of stuff from Taiwan/Hong Kong and it seems that HKP mail system is first class. If you get a tracking number, you can follow it all the way to the USA destination, once it hits the USA, the tracking number will work on the USPS website.

Funny thing is I ordered parts from Canada and parts from Hong Kong on the same day, the Hong Kong parts got here first.

I like the free shipping. I orfered from Hobby City and the lipos I wanted weren't in the states so I bit the bullet and paid the $26. shipping and upgraded to EMS, but they got here in 4 days. That's faster then ordering from Cali.

I LOVE DX! Ordered probably 20 times from them. Toys, lighters, heli parts, a coule laser pointers, you name it.. 8 of the Mystery 2400mah batteries. usually 10 days or so.. up to 3 weeks sometimes. BUT.. always registered mail.. so if you work.. plan on getting the little tan sheet and running in the P.O. the next day.

DX blows!!!!!:YeaBaby: I'm a little upset that they shipped my order today (22nd) yet I ordered on the 11th!!!!!!! :thinking I'm sure they are a fine company and all but 11 days to ship a package from the date ordered is a little extreme. Well I'm sure it will arrive any day now........yeah right!!

:thumbup: Thanks deal extreme, your the best :thumbup:

Yeah I have ordered from them a few times. Never any heli parts, but a bunch of other stuff. The free shipping or included shipping is a sweet deal. And their prices are great. You have to realize you are buying overseas, and dont expect too much from customer service or along the lines of speedy shipping.

Dude I orderd on the 3rd of nov. still no batteries so I emailed them. I got a reply on the 19th

Your order has already finished packaging and the status will change to shipped in about 24 hours.

It is normal to see a delay of 24~48 hours before the order status is changed to shipped because it takes time for shippers (Hong Kong Post, EMS, or DHL) to process packages and confirm the acceptance of shipments.


24~48 hours :bs try sixteen days.. I don't think I will ever order from them again:bomb:

It took a long time for them to ship my order but it arrived in 4 days. There was no rush for anything I ordered but it was annoying.

I just wanted cheap batteries in a reasonable time. 11 days to ship a package is ridiculous, not a big deal but still ridiculous.

I ended up cancelling a few orders because they were sitting in limbo processing. I'd rather pay a little more and have it shipped the same day.

WOH! That could be an awesome battery! Obviously a 3s... and 25C! That's got a lot of power... 51g heavier than my Mystery 15C's.. I wonder if that's too much for the B400?
