I got in last Monday my first purchase in DealExtreme delivered in Canada. This is a card with 4 AA Rechargeable NiMH Batteries GS Yuasa Enitime Pre-Charged 2000mAh (Gsyuasa Enitime Pre-Charged 2000mAh 1.2V Rechargeable NiMH AA Batteries (4-Pack)), chosen to power a radio Etón Grundig Globe Traveler G3, acquired on The Source canadense online. Ironically batteries come there from Hong Kong arrived a day before the radio was in Toronto, thanks to a delivery problem of the carrier Purolator where I was, it turned out to be less responsive to the Canadian Belt.
The radio is powered by four AA batteries, or an external source which also serves to recharge the batteries, and thus the obvious choice would be rechargeable NiMH, preferably the LSD (Low self-discharge) since the radio must consume little power. The price of batteries in Canada is lower than in Brazil, but is lower than in DealExtreme, and so I decided to order there, even to be able to compare the time it takes to reach, to alfândega, etc.
Cells GS Yuasa Enitime has been preferred in my DealExtreme for quite some time, I will not be repeating myself about them because all information about the Enitime can be seen in reviews anteriores, and so I will speak only of the request. I could have opted for Sanyo Eneloop, but I was afraid to send counterfeit batteries again.
The application has a certain job, PayPal would not accept the shipment to another country that was not my country of registration, and so had to leave the country like Brazil. Fiz o check-out não-expresso, I had to send the information from the PayPal receipt for him to pass to appear in my account, the correct and complete address already there. And the winds that usually DX a few days to make shipping was very fast and the application appeared on my account as “Packaging”, then had to run to open a ticket and putting the correct address country like Canada. Fortunately the maneuver gave time, despite having a bit late sending. In the package you can see that there are two address labels, which shows that the package was already really ready when corrected pasting a new address label over. Downside to PayPal for its inflexibility that allowed this whole mess. Okay that is to prevent fraud, but this precludes any purchase being outside of Brazil or even sending products to people outside Brazil. Looking after I saw that the same should have tried to address the checkout Brazil, so that the application would appear in my account immediately and so now could send the request for change of address minutes after the request is made, avoiding delays and the risk of the package below for the complete address wrong.
The application was done on days 13/08 and shipped on the day 14/08, perhaps it would have been shipped the same day if not for the address correction. Why not register do not know exactly when he left Hong Kong or when he arrived in Canada, but I know he was in my hands the day 24/08, only 10 calendar days (or 6 days) after. This record speed compared to Brazilian standards certainly was provided by Customs and agility of Canadian mail. Nesse pedido utilizei or “Drop Shipment and Gift Service” I do not use for purchases in Brazil there because this strategy is useless (at least with the IRS Curitiba), but here I do not know how to best use customs found. Probably no need, Canadian customs tends not taxing small purchases from abroad.
The package of batteries GS Yuasa 2000mAh Enitime Pre-Carregadas changed, which gave me a fright initial thinking they could be faking it too, but the cells themselves remain the same, with the same smooth finish as usual, and therefore believe that remain unique. The charger showed no charge in any of them initially, but after about 1 hours the first battery was already fully charged, the others were ending at intervals of about 20 minutes between uma, so that the latter was fully charged after 2 hours. If the actual capacity of these batteries is 2000mAh, should take about 4 hours so that the load was complete in my charger (525mAx4), therefore presume that they already had load, as is expected from a stack of low self-discharge.
