ROFL, and so begins my China fight

Recommended Posts

No, it was $16 a piece. You should not be paying $80 for it.

while true; it may be my best outcome,

 

i can sell it new on ebay buy it now for 80 too.... get the rest back that way

Have they changed their add - because it says price per piece (not per lot) in both the header and the summation line in your link - inferring you made the mistake - but then it contradicts this in the footer line saysing its for 10 pieces not for 1-10 or 1 lot or 1 piece. Guess they have trouble with the language and plurasition. Glad it gave you an out!

Scroll down the bottom to Transaction History, and you can see the actual purchase from some dude named P***Evans from Australia.

and in the end its AUSTRALIA who fucks me over.

Apparently there is NO WAY to ship Lithium batteries out of Australia (especially by air). As such, I have no way to return the device.

We are allowed to RECIEVE them, but not SEND them.

 

I got a phone call from Jessica (the owner of the store) offering me $80 refund on the tablet. Meaning it would have cost me $80 in total.

Considering I'm not able to send it back, despite rejecting it, I may have to email her and accept her offer.

 

I suppose an $80 android tablet isnt the end of the world.

It's always Australia's fault.

Sue them like every other rorter does.

From my quick google, the fact that AusPost won't handle certain lithium ion batteries does sound rather silly.

 

Credit where credit is due.

Can't people get them for $50 (non wholesale) though?

From my quick Google (I'm happy to be proved wrong on this) the rules don't seem to have any logical grounding, and therefore I have a hard time believing in the safety of them.

Indeed, and they're obviously safe enough to ship here in the first place. So it's not air transport alone that makes them unsafe.

Yeah but not from ebay.

 

It'd be the cheapest on ebay; tha's fo sure.

 

I've talked her up to $90USD refund. Cost me $150 initially. so thats not bad. $60 loss i can live with. Then agian i got a tablet, so i guess its not a loss either.

 

I have cases open with Ali and Paypal so i wont close them till the payment clears.

 

Lets see how this goes.

Unless aus post very recently changed their policy, you CAN ship lipo battery/powered devices by air provided they arent damaged.I have returned a couple of hi powered (like 20x or more capacity of a shitty tablet) to china.

Been that way for a while, I have had to send a few DSLRs via express road post to get around it...

You can sent Lithium batteries via air, But they have to be rated at a certain gram ratio (forgot what it is). AP usually wont tell you this so they don't have to worry about DG cargo. If it is within Australia, You need to send it via Road freight.

 

Typically, for electronic devices, if the battery is removable, Keep it installed in the product itself and ensure approx 2cm of Hard Cardboard packaging on all sides. Spare batteries will have to be packed in the same manner.

 

The reason why Lithium has been classified as a restricted DG item. There was a certain incident involving an air freight of Lithium batteries (High content) which had caught fire. This came down to how it was packaged as it was very prone to shortages (hence the fire)

and cardboard puts out fire?!

The Cardboard prevents shortages and the chance of the contacts from one battery touching the other.

 

It's all about safety
