I live in the NYC area. I ordered two Lazerer lasers with lithium batteries. The tracking still has not updated from "Left Hong Kong for its destination on January 12th."

I am getting worried that it has been stopped at US customs because of the lithium batteries.

Anyone order lasers from Lazerer WITH lithium batteries, and get it seized by customs?

It is never a good idea to add batteries with the laser in the shipment. Batteries are another dangerous goods what can be the reason for problematic import.

I am sorry that I can't help you with this.

There is a low chance that your lasers were seized, but really, it's a very, very low chance.

I know it's hard to be patient, but give it more time... I had stuff show up, and still show as being in customs, and in china.

For the future, ORDER BATTERIES SEPARATELY. You won't really be paying anymore for them... just ask if you need advice on where to order from.

In Canada, you get charged additional taxes when you orders batteries. But not every time.

I got mine today with batteries.
The sticker on the package said "led flashlight and safety glasses." lol
Also, the "gift" option was checked.
Thanks Max!

Incredible. I actually received the lasers today. Thanks for the help.

May review it tonight if I'm not busy. (Rifle 1.5w)

I have had tracking numbers from china never update.
I ordered parts from china five months ago, have already received them.
But to this day if I check the tracking number, it says in transit, miss sent.
I don't think they care to scan all items as they pass through the check points. Lol
