"Hong Kong International Airport is conducting extra screening and creating delays on all orders with large batteries.
We advise customers to avoid ordering large Lipoly battery (above 2200mAh) for the next 14 days.

In some cases these parcels may be delayed at the airport for up to 4 days.
EMS/Air Parcel tracking will not show during this period.

Hobbyking will be increasing it's DHL/UPS offering to customers to help avoid these delays and increasing German and US warehouse stock.
We are in constant contact with 'AVSEC' the airport security company and will let you know as soon as the delays are solved."

The word on HK's forum is that this is a 2 week exercise only, then things return to normal. I guess they have some dignitary looking into their security or something to that effect.
