Battery Shipping from Hobby King

So I have ordered many times from HK usually without a hitch.In fact I have one sitting at postal facility right now. .Then came no more shipping with lipos special shipping required. When you bought something and added lipos it would show shipping by swiss air. A little longer time but they did get here. Now I have an order I want to place that has lipos but nothing shows up about special shipping. Or does this happen after you click the pay now button
To a tree, balsa wood and MonoKote taste just like chicken!

Pee on it and walk away.

Re: Battery Shipping from Hobby King

Hello Hifly:

On spec, just now, I placed an order for LiPos to test the system. I first placed an order for one Turnigy Nano 3 cell 2250, then two, then three. At four batts, at that capacity, my shipping defaulted from International airmail to EMS, with an associated higher shipping cost (more than double!). But, I was able to specify International airmail and continue with the checkout process. I pushed the order as far as the PayPal sign-in and then aborted, so it looks like the order would have succeeded. Hope this info helps.

Yes, it only shows up when you go to pay. There was a thread somewhere before about shipping costs going up for lipo's and why. Not sure where it is, have to search for it.

Re: Battery Shipping from Hobby King

Here is message I got from HK online support about lipo battery shipping.

>>>>>We have to sent the parcels via Singapore speed post because each parcel sending from Hong Kong Post are restricted to the containing of battery.

For your information, if you do not want to receive parcel via Singapore speed post, you may consider splitting the order into smaller orders. We can send small parcels containing batteries via Swiss Post International Air mail. The maximum weight of each parcel is 1.85kg.<<<<<<

Seems there is new postal restrictions in HK about battery's and added cost is encountered.
