Just received tracking number for mine (Greece)!

Is there a way to see the destination address with the tracking number?

And here comes my tracking code from DHL Germany.

Of course, I'm abroad at the moment...hopefully they'll give me the usual option "Home or collecting point?" when it comes to Sweden.

I just received tracking info for mine, and am about to leave on vacation for 2 weeks >_<
Anyone got an idea how to arrange this with DHL, or will it just end up going back to sender, and i'll have to arrange a next shipment?

A bit impractical to just send them out in the middle of holiday season without asking if people can receive it

When delivered by DHL normally you should be able to give an advice online where to deliver if you cannot personally accept the parcel.

Mostly when I get DHL from Germany it is delivered by the local postal service and takes a few days. When I get DHL from China it is delivered by DHL and I get an email to redirect the parcel.

I'm Backer To The Future #649.

How Time McFly's, so today I finally received my Dave-O-Meter, from Welectron.

The DHLorean just stopped by in front of Doc Franks house.

Was expected to appear much earlier in the past, but anyhow, now it's  present, to often use it in the future.

It came flashing @ 1.21 GW, with unzippered EEVBLog1_22, so this Mc Fly is closed:



Then I hooked it up on High Voltage, to check its Lightning Rod capabilities, the DC and AC values turned out to be ok.





Biff Tanner (BT) is also polishing the data fine onto my mobile, and the 8 GB micro SD can biffer a lot of data.

The 1 MOhm range is quite noisy, and 10 MOhm is way off:



let's wait until it cools down after the timely journey, maybe a little bit of calibration is required.

Greetings from Doc Frank

+1 on the need of a solution for receiving goods.

1922 they had a pretty impressive pneumatic post system ... even in Munich.
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rohrpost_in_M%C3%BCnchen#/media/File:RohrpostnetzplanM%C3%BCnchen.png
(my meeter is at station #8 )

Just imaging the people, how they must have visioned the future.

2018 - we wait in the line at the fucking post-office, like an idiot. of course they close at 6pm - so somebody who has a job almost needs to take a day off  |O

Really enjoying the new meter.  Always wondered what my freezer was up to...

The saved file always has 2/9/06 9:30 pm as the created date, luckily first line of data is correct time and date.

spot check for voltage accuracy

7.49904  7.499
9.99770  9.997

vref calibrated at 21c temperature at the time of test 23.8c

WTF ?    :palm:
Your meter was shipped yesterday, but we had to do a second label for your shipment due to the need of a customs declaration to Andorra. Let me know if you did not receive the valid tracking number yet.

@All: The last batch of 121GW landed a few minutes ago. All backers that have not been served from the first batch will be shipped today.

Hello

I see that he is already in the La Poste

it's strange because I put the address of Spain and pay the VAT

but if it comes by La Poste much better for me (La Poste = directly to my house )

Now I have to investigate how to recover the VAT

Thank you very much

I recently bought in welectron an 869s a fantastic service on your part

Hi,

the meter will be delivered by DHL courier outside Germany? or it's DHL until the custom an then via standard national post service? in this case what about the local VAT? I elected and paid in advance the fee..

thanks

As I can understand from my tracking number the parcel is send using DHL normal posting service and not courier? Just a registered mail?

If that is the case, the parcel will be handed over the local post of each country. It usually takes 10 days (for Greece) for a delivery notice...

Alexander.

within the European Union it is normal to have the VAT of the country of origin in this case Germany

in my case the exception is because the sales to Andorra have no VAT

Andorra has an internal VAT of 4.5%

or if I buy something from the European Union and it costs more than 220 € the customs of Andorra will charge me 4.5%

Meter arrived.
  • I didn't expect an SD card so I readied one and was pleasantly surprised,
  • By default the beep is off ???, which threw me off because the manual said I had to press Setup till I hear a beep before any setting is saved,
  • The rubber boot is warped on the left side, not that I care,
  • The Android app is completely useless, and I see many others with similar problems,
  • I dislike the new 'yellow' of the temperature probe. It looks like it's been discoloring since the 30's, and the 'red' of the lead is more orange than the ends,
  • I don't know if the rubber tube around the temperature probe is for protection or not, but I found a new use: With the front of the tube flush with the weld point, I can push the probe tightly against a surface without fearing that the probe will bend or that I'll introduce a temperature influence.
