Australia Based Deals / Info / Links / Discussion

Thought I'd start a thread for Aussie-based deals although I know there are only a dozen or so active members. Recently bought these two bargains from Element14. Helping hands for $3.30. Discontinued line only 2 left in stock. Taiwanese made, better than the Chinese stuff.

--608-391A

 

And this Rolson vacuum base vice. $17. Could only find it for $50 on ebay and the like. There have been comments about it not sticking to surfaces but after rubbing my base with 800+1200 wet and dry, it sticks to my timber laminate table for 30+minutes.

Actual capacity is around 2600 unless you can charge to 4.3V. Still, quite usable. I scored a pack from the battery bin but normally a single cell is around $5, so even with shipping, this comes out around $3 a cell.

Bugger. I just bought eight Turnigys from Hobby King for $44.00. I got tired of waiting for these to come up again. It had to happen.

My current and or voltage measurements are only relevent to anything that I measure.

Eneloops? Plenty, but you can just skip that and buy some. These are the same battery as Gen 3, as they are Gen 3 with pretty outsides. I have two 8 packs of UOMO, and a few packs of Rouge, all Gen 3, they also do a Tropical bunch with shades of yellow and orange. Youre looking at versions with min 1900 or 2000 mAh and 1800 recharges.

The price is good, I got most of mine from DS when they do these silly specials.

You should have asked me, I have tons of unopened eneloop 4 and 8 packs laying around Silly

Every time time I find a good deal I feel like I have to buy them, but now I’ve got 100s of batteries I’ll probably never use.

You should sell them then! Few years down the track they’ll be wasted.

At first I thought you were asking to buy some but then I had to re read it, if anyone wants some for cost plus postage they can PM me but I’m not really trying to get rid of them but I’d help people out if they need some and they aren’t on sale.

That’s really generous of you ezarc. It’s like combining OzB and BLF spirit in one. Even though I don’t need any I really appreciate you offering people your unopened batteries for cost and postage.

Eneloops are an OzB speciality!
About once a month DSE have a decent special on them, so if you need em you won’t be waiting long.

Always seem to be AA’s…never AAA’s…weird.

G’day!

Thanks for the generous offer ezarc. I'll keep you in mind next time. Maybe you just need more lights to use all the batteries? Wink

Actually DSE has had AAA on sale since Feb’14 far more often than in any previous year as far as I recall….
So I am flush with Eneloop AA & AAA riches…. Smile

But I am willing to sacrifice myself, & will accept some more from ezarc’s Eneloop giveaway when he reaches the 2000 posts mark…. :bigsmile: Wink

Good idea for us underworld inhabitants.
Subscribed.
And thanks FmC – that’s a find and I can pickup – double rainbow!

For what’s it’s worth…
I got a few packs of Eneloop XX’s a year ago from ecocell.com.au at what I thought was a decent price.
(No affiliation whatsoever). I use them in my DA40 and EA40.

Thanks guys.
Where’s a good place to get energizer lithium primary AAs and AAAs ?
They’re about $20 for a 4 pack at woolies.

Occasionally they are around $16 at Woolies/Coles. BigW (owned by Woolies) had them on OzB at $9 for 4 online only but offered click and collect too, but then never had stock online and while stores had plenty, but would not cover online deals. It was very shady IMO.

I havent seen them cheaper though than about $16. Masters has them for $16.90 atm https://www.masters.com.au/product/902410819/energizer-aa-ultimate-lithi...

But I think closest Masters to us is Caboolture/Morayfield.

Edit: Same price at Bunnings http://www.bunnings.com.au/energizer-aa-lithium-batteries-4pk-_p4410081

I measured the NICE lithium batteries from FastTech at the same mAh as Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries, I have the details somewhere but from memory they were both just under 3000mAh at 1A draw. I bought 40 from FastTech for $40 ($1 each).
