[GB cancelled there's an alternative] Vapcell 1100mA 18350 (Indonesia only)

UPDATE 180512:

Now Vapcell Store list it in it's Aliexpress store: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32872007642.html?spm=a2g0s.13010208.99999999.262.uhnZ3S

We can buy in 2 pcs at reasonable price. Not as cheap as USD3 before but it's still cheaper than Keeppower (same cell inside). Worldwide shipping too

 

 

 

 

----------------------------------------------------

I need to buy 4 pcs of Vapcell 1100mA 18350 from Alibaba. I need find something better than the 800mA 18350 for my EDC.

I think this is a good time to stock one of the better 18350 Li-Ion cell currently available. Any participants only need to pay for the item's price plus the shipping cost from CN to ID (plus tax & duty) + shipping cost from my place to your city. The formula goes like this:

Cost = item price + ((shipping from CN to ID + duty tax)/participants number) + shipping from Bali to your city.

 

Walter gave me USD3/pc for 100+ quantity (via Alibaba). The link is here

 

If you're interested please don't PM me about the order, just reply directly to this thread.

 

Interest list:
1. Clemence
7. Bwings

12.

Walter (miss) have trouble finding cheap couriers to ship those batteries to Indonesia. The new regulation oblige all battery types to be shipped by sea or individually contained in an airtight container (flashlight) or in corresponding device inside a well packaged package.
But big couriers such as DHL and FeDex seems to have the rights to ship them at much higher extra cost. She’ll figuring a way to get it here. Will keep you updated guys.

(somewhat off topic)

That’s strange, I also asked for a quote from that same Alibaba store. Quoted price is $3.20/pc, and minimum quantity to ship to my country (Philippines — which is nearer to China) is supposed to fill up 20kg (she computed that’s around 430pcs 18350)…

I’m not sure I could arrange that big a group buy (430pcs for my country)..

My price doesn’t include the shipping. And she quoted for 100 pcs only. But that was before she found out no economy airfreight couriers can ship it to Indonesia.
If there’s a good shipping service from PH to ID, I’d rather buy from you. And let you handle all the custom hassles LOL

Is this for within ID or would you consider shipping it out to SG?

I can only ship it to outside ID using premium expensive courier
such as DHL. The minimum rate is 1kg small box which is about USD50 to Singapore. You better get it “hand carry” via Batam if you have an address there.

Thanks, Clemence. Through Batam is the logical idea but I have no address there.

I have a friend there. Let me check if she could help us about it. Later, if she can then you can arrange a group buy for Singapore.
But first Walter must ship the stuff either to ID, PH, or perhaps SG? AFAIK shipping to SG is amongst the easiest in Asia. Is it true?

any chance for 18650 battery too?

Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.
I am kind to everyone, but when someone is unkind to me, weak is not what you are going to remember about me.

Well, I am not so sure about the easiest in Asia but I manage to receive whatever I bought from overseas.
Get taxed 7% for anything more than SGD400.00.
Shipping batteries out of SG is not easy.

Very glad to see them on Ali.
Not cheap, but not terribly expensive either and they offer some batteries that were not easily available internationally before.

Wait, don’t buy more than 10400mA in total or they’ll be returned back. I asked the limit of Lithium Ion battery in Jakarta several weeks ago. This also applies for those carrying power bank, flashlights, cameras, etc. They calculate the total limit at the airport security check.

Thanks for the info. I only plan to buy a pair Smile Should not be a problem hopefully.
About the power bank, I have 16000mah power bank, does that mean I can’t carry them to the airport? Sad

Hmmm was it 10400mah or 16000mah. I don’t quite remember. Check the airport website or www.insw.go.id
