My expedited shipment for my Silver series laser went into and out of customs in 36 hours. Looks like I'll get it tomorrow! I definitely recommend expedited shipping.

I used regular, which seems expensive compared to other things I've bought from china. I think it was add around $20 for fast, but that's on top of the $17 I think regular is, so that's way too much for fast shipping. DHL could get it here in 4 days or less for $16 or less.

I agree, all my high dollar orders from Sanwu I get expedited. 36 hrs through customs, someone's looking fondly down on you, that's really good. Did yours tracking number jump from HK to USPS with the same number? All mine have?

Think that maybe the difference. I only use expedited shipping on my laser orders. The tracking numbers jumped from HK to USPS when the package comes state side. Can't speak about regular shipping, no hands on experience. But best wishes with your order and let us know thoughts when you receive your lasers . As always, beam shots ( hint hint )

I'm glad it still made home! I wasn't too nervous considering all the good reviews and happy customers along with how recent some of these review were. But considering I'm in California, I wouldn't be surprised if our regulations were extra strict. Like it is for ahem* "firearms" but that a different topic for another forum

You know I was really unsure what the actual benefit was even reading the description on the site page. I was unsure what the better choice was but so my first order I the 3-element, 1W 520nm. I was considering emailing Podo today to ask if I can order the extra G7 lens and have him put it with the laser before shipping it out. For my other three orders I decided on G7 for all of them for the efficiency and tighter beam since I made sure to get the expander for all the lasers Someone posted and sold me with the distance..
I may order a G2 set later for the laser just to see the difference but either way ill make sure to post some pictures/reviews.
I also need to find out what size lens the Spiker and Saber require.

So best wishes. Beam shots? ( hint hint).
I didn't get the expedited shipping since I was spending so much already but I'll highly consider it in the future! And of course ill get some beam shots and try to post the ASAP. Gonna have to order a few set to high quality batteries and Eagle Pair tonight to make sure I'm prepared

Hey BobMc, I think next time ill get the expedited shipping for a tracking number. I'm just wondering what was the total time you waited from order to arrival? I had a pretty big order and didn't get the expedited so I know mine will take longer just curious since you're also in CA.

I've had a couple of rather large orders from Sanwu. Each has arrived within 5-7 days of shipping. That does not count the time when I put my order in. That seems to have take 5 days ish. Can't quite give you an exact number because I ask them to hold my order and shipping on a certain date. Which they've always done like clock work. Hope this answers your question.

Thank you, It does! I was expecting 2-3 weeks from order. It's only been 1 so far but I'm just excited like a kid waiting to open his Christmas presents. Thanks again.

Your welcome, and don't worry about customs, never had a problem with them. It's just a matter of waiting, and that's the tough part! Enjoy.

Ps, give them a couple of weeks on standard shipping.( I know it's rough. )
