It’s been a busy week at Chinavasion.

Not only did we give away three six Wrist Band Portable Battery – White Iron Samurai – Japanese Inspired Red LED Watch to some very lucky people in the The 350th Chinavasion YouTube Video Treasure Hunt we also uncovered a handy tip on how to turn your digital camera into a scanner in the blog Ecommerce 101: How To Convert JPG TO PDF.

So without further ado lets look at some of the more common questions we saw this week.

Can you email me when products go offline?

Absolutely! By just following a few steps you can have the Chinavasion stock update feed delivered to your inbox.

Here’s how you can do it:

For Those With Gmail

Go into settings and click on the setting that says labs. You know the labs features, it’s the thing that allows you to supercharge your Gmail with all those fancy gadgets that Google Engineers have been working on.

Go down to the gadget labeled Add any gadget by URL Click Enable and then select “Save Changes”.

Gadgets from labs

Go back to settings and go to the menu “Gadgets” copy this URL and paste it into the box like so:

gadget URL

You should see a box like the one below and you should be able to go back to your inbox:

Once you’re in your inbox you’ll probably notice that the feed reader has the CNN RSS in there by default. To change that hold your mouse over the left hand side of the frame and click on the spanner that appears on the side:

RSS Gmail gadget step 1

Paste the URL into the space that appears and then hit OK.

For Those Without Gmail

Go to paste the URL into the “Website or Feed URL” section Paste your email address into the “Your Email Address” section. Hit enter.

You will never be out of the loop again.

I have a blog/YouTube channel, can I review your products

We often do send out review items for Bloggers and YouTube reviewers to try out.

If you are interested in reviewing something send an email to with a link to your blog/youtube channel and we will see what we can do.

You send me the instructions for turning up the volume for cell phones, but it’s for different model number. Will it work with my phone?

Chinavasion cell phones use similar operating systems so what works on one phone will often work on another. So, for example, if you are using a Element – Wifi Touchscreen Worldphone there is a good chance that the trick to Increase Speaker And Microphone Volume for the Odyssey WiFi phone will work for you too.

I’m from Russia and want to ship by courier why are you shipping my goods with EMS?

Recently we have observed severe restrictions regarding deliveries handled by courier.

To resolve this successfully we will ship via EMS to guarantee that the item gets to you or your customer without fuss.

You promise that once I leveled up, you would provide preferential treatment. Can you tell me my account manager’s personal email and direct line?

There is no need for you to do a thing! We have already shifted your email into the preferential treatment category.

As long as you contact us with the email you registered with we will redirect your email to our VIP support team for speedy handling. If you change your email, please inform us and change your account information so your tickets can continue to ‘jump the queue’.

You’ve always got the latest gadgets. What products should I watch out for in the near future?

Remember how people said that one day robots will rule the world? Well if they’re anything like this Robotic Vacuum with Wi-Fi camera then I for one welcome our robotic overlords.
