  • Shipping is crazy slow at the moment, even with Aussie Express shipping, if you want the items anytime soon it might be best to go for Aussie Expedited maybe…

  • Average shipping time from Fasttech is around 10 weeks.
    For me anyway. Still waiting for an order.

    • I haven't ordered anything recently, but pre-COVID it was closer 10 days for me. I did always pay the extra ~$1 for the Australia Express ePacket upgrade though.

      • Covid has changed things, not too many planes flying… I like FT but you just have to be tolerant of the long shipping times at the moment, not their fault.. …

        • Given that a typical container ship takes 14 days to go from Shanghai to Sydney (less for the faster ships), they should send stuff by container ship. Probably arrive faster than by air.

    This sale must be aimed at Americans, because UTC-6 is the time zone of the middle of the USA.

    For us in Australia, the sale starts at 4pm AEST on 1 September, and lasts until 4pm AEST on 2 September.

    Here's where I got the conversion, Denver is currently UTC-6 because it's on daylight savings:

    Shipping time for me wasn't bad, I ordered some USB cables on 27 July, they shipped on 1 August, arrived in my mailbox on 25 August. Just under a month. I chose free airmail for that order. They emailed me a tracking number, which worked until the parcel got to Sydney on 18 August. No tracking after that.

  • Hi OP

    Have you stopped shipping e-liquid to Australia?
    Healthcabin seems to be doing it.

  • Might stack with 3.5% at CashRewards, check CR website to see if the code is listed.

  • too bad they can not ship most of the stuff they sell any more

  • holy crap 15% off lol

  • Fantastic thanks, bought tons of stuff from them. Shipping takes a while but their stuff is very affordable.

  • Great price on that laptop! Shame they skimped out on the numpad though

    • scratch that! Didn't realise it was in USD!

      • It's an easy mistake to make, I've done it several times myself. Now I always double-check what PayPal tells me as I check out.

    Raspberry pi 4 with 4GB RAM comes to AU$78 after the discount, cheaper than local suppliers.Fasttech don't add GST to that price, so substantially cheaper. Element14 currently selling for AU$92.40.

    A reminder to all: although they say everything has free shipping, not everything does, and shipping costs can be substantial if you have to pay them.

    If you want examples of non-free shipping, almost everything on this page: https://www.fasttech.com/search?3d%20printer

    It looks like anything heavy doesn't get free shipping.

    On each item's page, the "free shipping" status is directly under the price. If you can't see "Free Shipping to Australia" directly under the price, it doesn't have free shipping.

  • I found the shipping times variable at present. I had some items take what seemed 2 months, another around 3 weeks. Their prices are very good.

  • https://www.fasttech.com/p/9723483?

    Wow that looks great for the price. Anyone have this or can comment? Security risk?

  • Rep, what's the status update on finding a way to ship rechargeable 18650 or 21700 to Australia?

    • If you want 18650's look at this Aussie store:
      https://www.techaroundyou.com/Vape-Batteries-Australia-Melbo...

      Look at the 2x price, a lot cheaper than the single price generally, they also have an ebay store… If your battery of choice isn't on that page search for it, NCR18650GA or such..

      • I've bought from techaroundyou a number of times and they're definitely a good source for batteries. Need to check between their ebay and website for best price though

    • Another cheap option for 18650 batteries is to pull apart old laptop batteries or cordless drill battery packs.

      A member on here mentioned they bought the Aldi cordless drill battery packs when they were on sale, pulled them apart & got about 10 Samsung 18650's.

      Edit - found it here.

      • Can confirm, have opened a couple Aldi Xfinity packs myself. At my local they sometimes got marked down to $20 in the past.

    • finding a way to ship rechargeable 18650 or 21700 to Australia?

      It's been three years since I last tried to get batteries from Fasttech, but Fasttech won't even ship NiMH batteries to Australia. I raised this with them, pointing out that only lithium-based batteries have travel restrictions, and they told me that Singapore Post (their shipper) has a restriction on ALL types of battery.

      This company sells 18650 and 21700 batteries at a good price (for Australia), with reasonable shipping costs:
      https://ecocell.com.au/product-category/rechargeable-batteri...

      They have genuine made-in-Japan Panasonic NCR18650B batteries for ~$9 each inc GST.

      Edit: now out of stock of the Panasonic NCR18650 batteries, but other 18650s available.

  • The Xiaomi Redmi 9A Global doesn't have Band 28 if that's important to you.
    And it has a micro usb port in 2020.

  • The promotion is already started, the code is working for me now.

  • hmm code doesn't seem to work on the phone.

    price doesnt change after applying code.

  • wtf this website is awesome you can even pay with crypto lol, too bad it doesn't stock computer pats

  • Any smart home devices on there that anyone can vouch for?

  • Got the Xiao Mi router. Paid in USD. Lets see how long it takes to get to Australia. I also opted for the expedited delivery from Aus post too.

    • Mine was shipped from Australia surprisingly, not from china i reckon. got them in a week. pretttty gooood

  • Found a new catch, courtesy of Fasttech's "we won't ship batteries" stand. Also affects most things with a remote control, which includes a lot of car radios, because the remote contains a battery.

    On the webpage of such items, says "
    Important information and restrictions:

    Because this product contains batteries, it can only be shipped via select shipping methods. These shipping methods are displayed when you check out the order."

    There were no shipping methods available. Every option was greyed out, couldn't get to the checkout page.

    • Yes i'm getting the same thing, they wont ship batteries and knives. However i have bought torches and knives from them many times, it's the main thing i buy so the new policy is disappointing. Going to have to find a new shop to buy from.

      • I think they don't actually know if there's a battery included, they are going by what the seller has written in the description. I did manage to buy a car radio with a remote, which probably comes with a coin cell, but the battery isn't listed in the description.

        I've also complained to them on one occasion, when a flashlight described as "uses AA battery" arrived and actually was an AAA battery. After they realized it was their listing that was wrong, they offered me a refund, and changed the listing quickly. They don't know the products they are selling, I'm pretty sure they allow third-party selling.

  • Damn paypal charge a lot for currency conversion. I end you using citibank to do the conversion to stop their double dipping by charging the seller and buyer.

    • It's been a while since I used PayPal's conversion option, I recall it worked out they charge about 4% of the transaction value. If you have a good credit card with no currency conversion charges, works out much better. Such cards include 28 Degrees, Bankwest Platinum, and I think one of the Coles credit cards does, but the Coles one may have an annual fee.

  • That Teclast Android tablet linked by the OP seems like great value. Tempting.
