Delay In Outbound Air Mail Services


To safeguard aviation security, Hongkong Post does not accept the sending of air mail items (including Speedpost) that contain dangerous articles such as perfumery products, lighters and lithium batteries. Hence, all mail items entering the Air Mail Centre are subject to x-ray screening. Recently, there is an increasing number of air mail items detected to contain suspected dangerous articles, in particular, lithium batteries, which lengthens the screening process. In this connection, air mail registration service, iMail service and Bulk Air Mail service may be subject to delay. Any inconvenience caused is much regretted.


*The above quoted from an HKP press release.

RE: China cracking down on dangerous items shipped via airmail. This includes e-juice an
Delays of 5-7 days are to be expected for ALL outgoing packages via HKP due to X-ray scrutiny of all packages.  Those containing the items listed will be returned to the originating sender.

According to the folks at Fasttech, packages with a mixture of items are being allowed through in small quantities.  Packages containing only E-juice, Li-Ion cells, or a mixture of the two are being returned.

Thanks for the head's up Johnny!

Keeppower has informed me that they can not ship batteries via FedEx or DHL any longer. Batteries are shipped UPS at of course additional cost so I order by the hundreds (plural)
