    Somehow i don't think so. I ordered early May and I got my address confirmation just recently. This past few weeks they really have been banging them out. Or maybe getting that email turned me into an optimist.

    I heard back from them today. It is nice for them to has a quick turn around on customer emails. Sounds like they are still behind some. Ordered 10/22/16.

    "Hi There,

    Your order is estimated to ship in December. It is still difficult for me to determine the exact date it will ship out. Please keep an eye out for an email asking you to confirm your shipping address as your order will ship a few days after you reply to that email.
    I apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience.

    Best,
    Caroline"

    So I took the plunge last Nov 11'th and ordered a stainless grasshopper to call my own. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the expected ship date was and still is December. crossing my fingers that will actually happen.

    Any updates on how long it will take for batteries to ship? If I order one from their store?

    EDIT: I decided to just order it, and however long it takes is how long it takes.

    Great news! Exactly one year after my order I got the shipping confirmation!! That means I'm only 2-3 months behind everyone else. And the guy who poster he just ordered in Dec 16 will get his today too!
    Fucking idiots there.

    We are seeing HL crawl toward finishing in-house pre-orders. The perception of glacial pace is only enhanced by the company's insistence on irrational exurberance.
    We are watching HL fail to come even close to the veiled promise of Hopper's for Everybody! for Christmas. I'm aware there were no promises; just a very recent marketing push and carrot dangled re: order now and get a "December" estimated ship date.
    At the same time, we are seeing more and more Hoppers roll off the line, with lots and lots more being retailed out under a different kind of program. Pre-ordering and Ordering are now only dependent on $. And time, since one is way faster than the other. There will never be a distinguishable product date of roll out, since that's already happened concurrent with the pre-order fulfillment stage. It's not cart before the horse -- the two have been in a footrace all year!

    Love that I can see @MoltenTiger on your screen. Hahaha. Recognize that avatar anywhere!

    Last time I checked this thread people from October 2015 were still waiting, glad they're improving a bit.

    I opened a warranty case for SS Hopper and was advised to send it in complete with charger and battery.
    I did that on Dec. 14th and same day sent Hopper off to Boulder via first class mail, which almost always has bee a 3 to 4 day trip, sometimes even faster. This package took the slow boat and arrived on the 22nd, then HL checked it in to service dept. on 23rd, just before the Christmas party, I guess.
    Of course no word since then; I hope they're all having a great holiday break!

    In the meantime, our Ti is filling in just fine, and Mighty is rising to the occasion, as always. Wife and I do enjoy vaping together with each having a Hopper, but with only one on hand, we turn to Mighty for nice sessions. Okay, maybe a taste or two from Hopper (it's so easy) while Mighty heats up!

    The similarity is uncanny @vapviking. My SS is down for the count (temp sensor/body), so my wife and I share the Ti GH, however she prefers the Mighty (easier on her lungs) but waiting out the holiday mail slow down as her new Mighty Medic is in the mail! Also have another SS and Ti GH coming from Toronto Hemp Co!

    For those of you all waiting for your Hoppers...... it's my favourite vape of all time now..... the wait is definitely worth it!

    I ordered a Grasshopper from the main site back in July, and have not yet received my GH. I see people ordering recently, and getting them ASAP. Do the pre-orders get fulfilled after new retail site sales?

    Should I cancel my pre-order through the GH site, and order from a re-seller? Any suggestions on a good one?

    If you want it sooner (now) rather than later and don't mind paying a slight premium, you can buy it now from an authorized retailer. I'm not sure if they're much past March or April preorders.

    I wish I remembered which retailers have it in stock now. Others here or on the gh thread likely know.

    Either way, it's worth the wait!

    I was in a similar situation as you a couple months ago. I decided to not cancel my pre-order, but because I was so tired of waiting, I ordered a second GH from Vape Fiend in London, which arrived within 9 days. The original GH I ordered finally arrived just a couple weeks ago. So now I have two, and I'm glad I do, because it's nice to have a backup.

    If I were you, I wouldn't cancel your original pre-order, for a couple reasons:

    1.) It seems they are now shipping orders placed in June, so your July order shouldn't be too much further behind...

    2.) If you order from a 3rd party retailer, you will likely get a GH that was built a long time ago, before they switched to the new version of the USB charger and battery. Their older USB chargers tend to fail (mine did after only 3 days)

    That said, I know how frustrating it is to keep waiting... I waited for nearly 10 months and it sucked

    IMHO The batteries are not "made" for the Grasshopper they are a standard thou not common size of lithium ion battery that they have a custom wrap put on. Based on size and capacity I think a 12650. No company the size of Hopper could have a custom battery made. The cost would be insane. As for no know product using it I can't name one but a lot of chargers list 12650 as a compatible size. I know they say it is a custom battery but I don't believe it. They will have say in the quality level they get but that is all.

    None like the Hopper though... None can do what the Hopper does.
    Not my cup of tea right now cause my budget likes the vapes a little more robust these days but I have to admit it's a spectacular design no matter how much I like to pick on my bro about its few shortcomings! :p

    If you don't have the time, $ or patience, then this one's not for you. This story is now years old! But,

    It does seem like your order is only a "few weeks" out and you may be pleased with your smart self if you wait for it. Yesterday's Update said price is going up. One of the concepts behind the whole pre-order process is that earlier adopters are rewarded for patience with lower entry cost. Granted, HL has more than amply pushed the envelope on the 'patience' part.
    From my own example; I paid $135 ea. for some SS hoppers and $180 for a Ti, plus they threw in a leather sleeve and a free battery. I waited for a YEAR. (Now they are 175/225 and going up. *earlier adopters enjoyed lower pricing than I.)

    Even after receiving there will be bumps in the road. I am glad to have a spare since I've made a lot of returns.

    I find the Grasshopper absolutely kicks butt, as vapes go.

    I think one of the main justifications for cancelling an order would be if, looking ahead, international shipping might be a hassle and expense.

    Well after 3 years plus I have finally taken the plunge and ordered a Grasshopper. Hopefully they have the supply problem fixed. Time will tell.
