I didn't specify potted in the order either. I hope Justin can convince Richard to wind me another unpotted pair for the group price. Usually it is nice to get extras for something that I didn't pay for, but not this time :-)

I got mine earlier this week. The box was beat up but the transformer appears to be OK. But I was a little surprised that I had to pay an addition $25.20 for postage due. This caused a delay in actually getting the transformer because I had to take time off to make it to the post office to pay the shipping.

Did they give a reason for the extra postage? I will reimburse you for the cost. My apologies. Send me an email with your Paypal info and I will send you the money.

No they didn't give a reason other than implying that not enough postage was paid by the sender. I will have a look at the box since it had the postage info written on it but I have to get home from work first.

If my memory is correct original postage paid was around $10 or $11 plus change and they wanted a total of $36 plus change which seems kind of steep. I just checked on the USPS web site and a regular post from the east cost to here is $26.87 for an 11 pound package and the package has to be over 25 pounds to get above $35. Not sure how much this package weighed but the transformer itself is slightly over 8 pounds and the packaging couldn't be more than 3 or 4 pounds.

I'd question the post office. I've had a couple run-ins at the local office. One guy who works at the counter and sorts mail always adds postage on greeting cards and and envelopes with more than two sheets of paper and when I ship he weighs and measures everything ten times and checks his book to get the highest rate. And they're the laziest bunch of people I've ever seen.

I had to ship a PCB to England and they quoted me over $10 to ship a small padded envelope. I went to the next town and they charged me $3 and change.

That would happen if the Post Office used a different rate, by mistake or intentionally.

My empty transformer box and packaging weighed about 8 ounces ( I just re-purposed it the other day... )

It has been happening lately. My local post office stopped accepting padded envelopes with anything hard inside, like a circuit board, or a short plastic tube of parts, mailed as a package, even if it meets the published rules for padded envelopes in every other respect. Basically they bump the postage into the package category, which can mean $9~10 postage to Europe instead of $3-4.
