Ian,
They're probably trying to make sure it'll get to you. There is a ban on laser pointers/devices import and they might have had some issues sending stuff in the past... Ain't it great to live in the land of the free?

If you added "batteries" power cells to your order it is possible that could slow shipment. As recently as January 2013 the USPS had flipp-flopped on policies about shipping batteries internationally. Different shippers may also have differing policies.

O-planet should be able to get you squared away. If it's a "out of stock" issue or a battery shipping issue or other thing like import restriction (like mentioned above), I'm hopeful it all works out quickly and drama-free.

Worst case senerio if it's a battery shipping issue is have them ship everything but.

Then look local for 18650s. Since the light will run CR123s you will be able to use the light even if rechargable cells prove difficult to source.

The message is also very likely a generic auto-reply on International orders.

Yeah, I'm thinking that as well, though I've never had a message like that before. Batteries are readily obtainable here in all sizes, just maybe not locally. It's only a matter of getting them on line.

Ian,

It might be worthwhile to shoot an inquisitive e-mail to them with your order number, etc. or call them.

This Ultimate Edition is a bit elusive.

This is why I (sorry for it) sent you a few PMs with a couple or so links to possible places to buy the light. You could call each and see who will work with you.

I know this has been resolved a lot as well but I like my Fenix LD12 a lot, and my Quark QT2A-X. I have another smaller Fenix E11 that is also great. All of them have served me well as EDCs. All of them are button press and the first two have adjustable settings.

Fenix, seems to have a good name. cool

I've ordered a small torch as well and have re-ordered the batteries from here in OZ.
