Get yourself a Citibank Plus bank account or 28 degrees credit card. Either of which don’t have currency conversion fees and use XE rate. No fees for opening or holding the account/card either so costs you zero.

I really want to buy some too, so cheap. But I have nothing to use them in!! Should I go buy a AAA just to use the batteries? Haha!

Sweet! Just scored some AAA's myself.

Best of all I just received my 8 pack AA eneloops from DS purchased earlier in the week ($24.95 including postage) and somehow THEY DOUBLED UP ON MY ORDER! :):) 2 separate packs sent, identical order numbers and tracking. Two 8 packs for 25 bucks! Laughing

All thanks to this thread, thanks aeou!

Now you’ll have to get one or two of the GB Stainless steel AAA lights for $6 each !

It has a really hard switch, and the WW is almost too yellow.
But for $6, with a lithium primary, it’s an impressive gift light.

Yeh I looked at that, not a fan! Don’t know why. Unpleasant tint, a bit long for a AAA.

This is great thanks…. Subscribed. Now all we need is place that will sell protected 18650’s at a more reasonable price.

I wish we had RMM in Australia Silly

Supersports600 on ebay sells protected 18650’s but for an absolutely ridiculous price.

18650 gonna have to be either the laptop battery from ebay previously mentioned or fasttech!

RMM has been a bit frustrating for me. Twice used the site contact form for a quote and never received a response. Just gonna wait for a proper online international ordering system.

Illumn. Works out fine if you dont want 1 battery. Calvin is great to deal with too, and prices are comparable. Only the cost of post stings, but like I said, buy more than one item and its not so bad. When I worked it out, using the cheaper Chinese sites it wasnt worth the wait and hassle over a buck or two per battery. Illumn just delivers quick, same quality, same price, just spread post across more items.

Yea that’s true. I did get a head lamp off illumn and some miscellaneous things. 7 days door to door. They don’t sell the same range of DIY parts etc though, like FET drivers, MTG2 QO, convoy triple setups etc.

Most of you may know already but for those who don’t this ebay seller still has the best price on KeepPower 5200 26650 batteries. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2-X-26650-Keeppower-5200-mAh-rechargeable-Lit...

He mentioned that he’s neglected to do the maths on his price and he may actually be losing out after paypal and fees. That may mean he will be raising the price. Not unusual to either, considering he’s got better prices than everywhere else. And that’s rare for an Aussie seller!
