This is an order for three Rechargeable 9V 280mAh Ni-MH BTY in DealExtreme. I decided to do it when we took for lost order for three Rechargeable 9V batteries Tweens I did in FocalPrice, that ended up arriving quite late due to delays of the Brazilian Federal Revenue.
It is the second purchase BTY 9V batteries that do, I have already spoken of the first here in Skooter Blog, then there will be a new review. The individual price remains $4,61 USD, but again opted for bulkrate, paying $4,02 per battery (rose slightly, before it was $3,88 U.S. dollar), which added to $1,70 dollars for bulkrate (including the record for tracking) totaled $13,76 USD, still a good deal considering the price (and the difficulty of finding) here in Brazil. The packaging of BTY batteries changed a bit, but the batteries seem to be exactly the same.
I did not use the "Drop Shipment and Gift Service", those who follow the blog know that already do not use it for a long time because I consider useless (tax already know the packages from DealExtreme and whatever have logo or not). A description of the contents came as “Batteries” and the declared value was $57 Hong Kong dollars, equivalent to approximately R $ 13,00. Despite being a registered package (with tracking number), most targeted by tax, was not taxed.
The request was made in 13/01/2010 and shipped the same day (quite Agility DealExtreme, in contrast to the second half of last year). The trace appears that the package arrived in Brazil in 05/02/2010, and em 10/02/2010 it was delivered (no intermediate steps). Note here that it is unlikely that the packet has been almost 20 days transiting, and then only in 3 working days to arrive in Brazil, go through inspection, be transported to my town and longer be delivered to my home. So it is more likely that the package arrived in Brazil, took a long time with overseeing and was received in the mail system only on 05/02, already been released by the IRS, and then he took 3 working days to get here, which is a normal time Paraná transport (which I suppose has been made surveillance) hitherto. There is a rumor that since the end of last year the IRS has caught the packages without giving a chance mail scan them, and so they only enter the system after inspection, so it makes perfect sense.
