      @Jesus and sam, they commented on the shipping exception in the comments section:

      Hi all! If you've tracked the US shipment on its way to us from China, you've seen the shipment warning "incompatible material." This just means China Customs is opening one robot (all the way up - they have to actually crack his case) to examine the battery and make sure it matches with the certifications/customs classifications forms we submitted. This is pretty normal for China Customs, so we don't expect a significant delay. Will keep you posted!!! - Jen & The Romotive nerds

      I would also like to express my concern over the shipment exception, as well as the use of FedEx to ship my product. I've sent you an email regarding the shipping; an update re: the shipping exception as soon as you know anything would be awesome.

      My concern is the additional brokerage fee that FedEx charge in my country. This fee usually twice the amount of tax and duty I have to pay.
      Will the Hongkong shipment centre also use FedEx to deliver?
      I have asked about alternative shipping arrangement other than FedEx or UPS to avoid this ridiculous handling fees but haven't got any answer.
      Please, could you regard this issue as this handling/brokerage fee is not fair and unjusted not to mention unnecessary as most parcel services don't apply it.
