RE: What did you get today?
The GBP exchange rate at the moment is poor. Close to 1 USD = 1 USD.

FT's exchange rate calculator is about 30% better than PayPal (or anyone else) will hit you for.

GB is the cheapest you'll find it when paying in Sterling..

Don, how does GEARBEST compare to FASTTECH for service/shipping? I've ordered numerous times from FT but never GB...

Unless there is a "deal" Gearbest prices are higher than FT. I did get my first Pico from GB for $20 and found the shipping a bit faster than FT. However, FT shipping times are all over the place from three to six weeks.

RE: What did you get today?
I've had no trouble from GB but have only a few orders from them. Shipping: Well you never know from out of China. If some3 sort of expedited shipping is available for a few dollars it is almost always worth paying.

Not sure if China Post does the same thing as HK Post where if you give them a chunk of money (Around $50K a year I believe), you don't actually pay any more postage. But this is lowest priority post.

FB, you might be able to enlighten us?

RE: What did you get today?
visited local B+M and picked up a 510 USB Charger for the FC Tesla Sidewinder. (to present to a 40+ year smoker who really wants to give vaping a shot)

While there curiosity got the better of me and I picked up a house brand Peach e-juice - mostly curious on how it compared to my DiY Peach v5. Not to sound TW'ish ........ but mine is better! Tongue

RE: What did you get today?
Juast got a minikin V2. It's okay. Not fond of the touchscreen but it fires instantaneously. Has a tendency to shut off periodocally. Must be something in the chip set that shuts it off it is idle too long? No rattle which is nice. I have a mage RTA on it at 32.5 watt.

This with a cleito but I switched to the mage. Amnd I also got this ...
