The turnaround is approximately usually 2- 3 weeks. This can be longer if are waiting on more batteries from Ocean Signal in the UK and need to catch up.
If you need your PLB1 in the coming weeks then it may be best to hold onto it and send it when you have a break from needing it.
Rest assured that even if it has an expired date on the device it should still work. Just perform the test as per the user manual and if they show it is operational then you will still be rescued if needed.
