I am very lucky to have received it so quickly. The seller sent it on the 4th, USPS said it left the US on the 5th, and I got it today, on the 13th. So USPS First-Class International Package to Singapore was 9 days. The usual time, according to the people online, is 2-3 weeks. I believe in Singapore it was delivered by local mail.
I'm looking forward to getting my PortPilot and plan to measure: charging speeds, charging speed of iPhone as it charges, energy needed to charge iPhone and energy capacity of my batteries. Related to "first class", I hate products that use terms like "maximum" and "ultimate" but aren't even the best in their series:
Update 3 May 14
I've had a few more things delivered by USPS, so I have a better idea of how long it takes and the types of updates to expect. This time, all my tracking numbers started with LZ and ended with US.
First, it ships within the US, which takes 2-8 days. After that, it makes the "jump" to Singapore, during which there are no updates for about 1 week. So, if the updates have stopped, it's probably in this process. Once it arrives in Singapore, it's delivered by the next day. Here are the shipping details:
- Steel mirror. Origin US state: TX. US domestic duration: 8 days. Final US state: IL. Jump duration: 6 days. Total delivery time: 15 days.
- KeySmart. Origin US state: IL. US domestic duration: 6 days. Final US state: CA. Jump duration: 6 days. Total delivery time: 13 days.
- Ti2 Sentinel. Origin US state: HI. US domestic duration: 2 days. Final US state: HI. Total delivery time: 15 days
An interesting thing is, the tracking numbers seem to be international. i.e. you can enter them in SingPost's tracker and continue to follow your package locally, with more details than the USPS tracker. If you use a good package tracking app (highly recommended; I use AfterShip; it's free), it'll switch automatically.

Ok I made the above information into a spreadsheet. At the same time, testing embedding Google Docs spreadsheets here.
Embedding works fine, but you'll want to put height="800" width="600" in the iframe opening tag.
