RE: Faattech?
Please note: The security code sticker that is used to identify if the product is authentic from Wismec was removed by FastTech in purpose.

RE: Faattech?
I've never attempted to purchase an authentic device from them, so personally I don't know. But I too have heard that it's more than a roll of the dice with them as far as authentics go. Why remove the auth tag??

Quite simple - the TW monopoly on Joyetech and Wismec devices in the UK - they can get into trouble from their suppliers if they sell into places that have negotiated exclusive distribution agreements.

RE: Faattech?
I've ordered authentic stuff from FastTech. From my experience, it really is authentic if it says it is. If it doesn't say authentic, it's almost definitely a clone. Also if it says "style" then that means it's a clone, for example a "Mephisto style RDA" is just a clone of the Mephisto. 

Have fun with your RX200! I just got mine recently and I'm loving it.

RE: Faattech?
  I ordered my first rx200 from FT, took 33 days to get to Tennessee, no sticker, but the 3.0 upgrade worked on it. My second one I ordered from a place in California, took 3 days, came with the sticker, and was five bucks cheaper. Haven't ordered anything from FT since then. I would gladly pay a few bucks more to avoid that kind of wait.

In this country there is a company that has negotiated an exclusive distribution agreement with Wismec. I can pay 5x as much or wait for FT.

I was thinking that but I selected 9-12 day USPS. So should be here within that range, right?

And I got off the phone with USPS for question about tax&duty, lady said its up to customs.

Anyone think I might get it quicker for the mail delivery selection option I chosen?

Wow, that is just WRONG. I feel your pain, I really do. Is it like that with everything e-cig related or just Wismec? Crap like that will open the door for all the other companies to do the same thing as Wismec, and maybe even worse. That sounds really shady to me, and I would almost bet there is government involved in it, if there is easy money to be made. 

  In your case, the best you can hope for is that FT uses the quicker of the two customs agencies in China, which would be in Shiamen. I don't think I spelled it right, but for some reason when my order goes that route, I get it much quicker than if it goes through Xiamen. It's been being about twenty days difference. But then again, it may be just the opposite for your country.Have you considered moving? To the USA, maybe?
