Got an update:
Apparently, batteries with more than 20Wh are now dangerous goods for UPS, so they won't transport them.
We've talked with TNT already and they're okay for them, so we'll reship your unit with TNT.

OK. Do you have an estimate of when it will be here? I'm not too familiar with TNT shipping.

It should take 1 - 2 days and it will either be reshipped today or tomorrow (I don't know yet whether my shipping provider got the packages back in time for TNT Pickup today).

However, I don't know if they deliver on Saturday, so it might be Monday.

Well hopefully friday, cause I want to fiddle with it this weekend and show it to my friend on Saturday.

I do hope that as well, and I'm really sorry for the delay.
It never happened before, but UPS just updated the shipping guides for batteries in January :(

Don't worry about it. These things happen.

Sorry for the double post, but I forgot to ask which model will I be getting.

Did it get sent out yet? I don't know when they ship their packages, and I haven't gotten a tracking number yet.

As TNT had just been added to our carriers, automatic tracking emails wasn't set up yet.
I've sent you the tracking number yesterday.

Yea I got it yesterday, and now I have to contact them cause I did not get it yesterday before 6 pm, and it still says it like I mentioned in the email. They are apparently not very good too. My luck just went downhill.

Yeah, I saw that out of 4 packages that should've arrived that day, only 1 arrived.

Maybe it has to do with customs - customs can unexpectedly delay a package.
TNT should know what the reason is though.

And mine arrived. Thank you for your help. Reinstalling windows 10 right now. Sadly, mine is an 8700.

Great. Enjoy it. And don't worry, there's not much difference between the 8700 and the 8750.
