Where to buy batteries?

Where is everyone’s preferred site to purchase batteries? Looking for the best deal along with decent shipping. Thanks in advance.

https://liionwholesale.com/ also, if you’re looking for Li-Ion chemistry specifically.

Gearbest, if you are in a country they ship to. authentic products, fair prices.

And if you don’t mind waiting forever. Smile

I usually get Gearbest items in less than 21 days. However due to Christmas it seems to be longer now… but that is expected. Gearbest also offers many local warehouses in Russia, Europe, US.

While not the fastest shop, three weeks is about what I can live with.

Ordered a flashlight from them a month ago and paid extra for priority shipping which is supposed to take 7-12 business days. I still have not received it. Online tracking shows that it hasn’t even left China yet. Sad

If you live in the US, Banggood is probably the best choice. Fasttech and Gearbest have great prices, but shipping costs are exorbitant.

IMRbatteries surprised no one has said this. Cheapest us domestic prices blf15 gets you 15% off your order. Anything in the store. Cheap shipping. The cheapest shipping is like $3 usually what you save with the code usually covers shipping

Just did my first order with IMR. Ordered 2 30Q’s and surprised when they came in a 2-cell plastic case and included 2 extra cell wrappers. Good prices and fast shipping. I’ve also used Illum supply and Mtn Electronics, all good too Thumbs Up

Since Chinese shipping prices have gone up and the shipping remains relatively slow, they’re not the bargain they once were IMHO, at last not for US residents. I’ll still buy cells from there if I’m ordering other stuff, but if it’s LiIons only it will be a US seller now.

My faves

illumination supply (illumn)
ME
Battery Junction (although standard shipping is slow depending on how far away you are)
Amazon (although their selection is limited)

Gearbest S/H fees for 26650 are outrageous to the USA so I avoid them. Bummers, I really wanted to try the Littokala 4-pack.
Bangood declined my 26650 order for unknown reasons.

I haven’t tried IMRBatteries but they have a very good reputation here too.

Just to clarify on the code for IMR batteries it IS case sensitive to get the 15% discount for BLF.
https://www.imrbatteries.com/

The Code is ……….BLF15………..no spacing and the letters must be capitals.
The code IS SITE WIDE and good on everything they have , including chargers and the misc. other items they carry.

I post this because I have had a few PM’s from members thinking the code did not work , but it was due to a space between the numbers and letters or not using capital letters. The code will stay permanent for the BLF forum as far as I know , other than being suspended when they have a large sale on most or all of the site , then the code will not work during the big sale only and will resume after the sale is done.

They are a very good company to deal with and the service is always top notch from all I have seen , even when I did a GB through them awhile back it went flawlessly.

The thread I started on the code / discount is HERE if anyone is interested in it.
