In the past, DHL delivered my Pine phones directly to my door.

NOW they deliver to my city, and then a 'third party' is going to deliver to my house.

In the past, When DHL sent me a text that they had picked up my shipment in Hong Kong, I would have my shipment at my door in about 24 hours.

NOW : this shipment took "Days" before even leaving Hong Kong,, the Los Angeles/customs and the road trip to my city in about another day, finally 3 days in my city
.......... before finally making it to my door.

In this crazy time I guess a week to travel around the globe is not too bad, but I would prefer counting hours to arrival, rather than counting days or weeks.

I think it depends on the actual service a shipment uses.

For example, I have received packages from Germany shipped by DHL, but that was mean a regular postal service, so it was handled by local postal service.
...but I have also ordered more expansive ways and DHL was also the final courier that case...

MY KEYBOARD arrived today

* ( DHL brought the keyboard from China to Tucson, then USPS delivered it to my mailbox, about 7 days total in transit No Complaints )

The keyboard is working ok, besides the software having a few rough edges, I need to get used to using my phone differently.

When this 'mini-laptop' is closed, it is about a whole inch thick !

One Neat thing I noticed right away, just open and tap in your passcode, and you have your home App screen open immediately !

First charge for the keyboard, it took a few hours to reach 100%

ADD: Running recent release of Mobian/B.W. with all updates

How do you know how long it took to charge the keyboard the first time? I didn't think it had any way of checking the battery of it.

I think it said it was about 40% when I first turned it on while connected with the charger,

I turned it off, allowing it to charge,   ---  when I turned it back on about 2 hours later it said 100% charged.

Not certain where it picks up the % of charge, perhaps a combination of the two ?

It does not show that two separate batteries are onboard.

I just used the information that was on the 'Power App' (on Mobian/Phosh) for my reference.

** Another post stated that their phone with the keyboard attached went dead over-night while the phone was turned off. --> (?)
.... they did not say what operating system they were using,
....... (my references here are using latest Mobian/Bookworm + daily updates, on convergent Pine phones.)

> I have not seen that, when I charged my combo (Phone + keyboard) to 100% and turned it off for the night, it was still at 100% when
I turned it back on 10 hours later.

I Really like this keyboard, BUT, it is not ready for my daily use Pine phone. ...maybe soon, but NOT YET NOW.

I had to turn on the phone,  check the charge status,  then turn the phone off again ---> to continue charging.     Shy
