Hey guys, I specifically want a vapcell 16340 that can be purchased in the UK with quick delivery in the UK. It wouldn’t hurt if I can also get 25R’s or VTC5a’s from the same place. Any advise please?

I wonder how it compares to the price from Illum.com? I just got an order for 8 cells (4 35E’s and 4 30Q’s), which came to $55.42 US including the $17.50 shipping charge.

I can’t tell what 18650canada charges for shipping, since they require me to fill out too much stuff to get a quote (I’m lazy). And, do they charge tax? All my orders from Illum have come in about a week, with no tax or fees.

So, for 8 cells, I got charged $55.42 US which is about $74 Canadian. About $9.25 CND per cell.

18650canada seems to be about $7 per cell. If they charge tax, it would be about $8. What’s the shipping charge, and do they charge tax?

Anyway, it’s good to have someone else in the game.

81,31$CA for 10× 30Qs.

Other cells are cheaper for some reason.

It’s the complete opposite of US sellers.

Seems he isn’t targeting the same type of demographic as pure lithium-ion cells sellers or Illumn.

Is that the total price you paid, including shipping and any taxes (was there?)?

If so, that’s not bad. It’s cheaper than Illum. I just tried that 10×30Q order at Illum, and it comes out to $64.90 USD, which is about $86.50 CND.

Okay, not too bad, then. When you get them, let us know if they test as genuine 30Q’s.

@ BlueSwordM;
Have some cells from China. Reading your posts, I think these would pass CBSA?
Backstory;
Ordered some 18650GA’s from FastTech in April, they acknowledged shipped May 23rd. Seems to be using Aliya’s method of DHL ground from Greensboro NC (drop shipping?). The tracking estimated delivery by last Friday (June 7th). Still “En route” (In transit). DHL tracking not very detailed. Do they hand over to local postal service or use their courrier?

I had given hope as had a series of mishaps with some Chinese orders. Originally ordered a MiBoxer C-6000 and later found the item to be discontinued. The batteries were part of the order. The charger: went with C4-12A which is now in Mississauga.
Fast Tech pricing quite good – $26.45 CAD (shipped) for the 4 cells. A tad less than Aliya.

BTW what is your battery analyser? Much better than my inline mini USB tester.

Haven’t had any problem from Aliya or Lucky, but never ordered cells from Fasttech.

It’s this constant current tester:

I’ve found this one:

18650BatteryStore.com

US retailer but very good service, good prices and ships Canada. ~12$ (for 8 oz. ePacket), ~27$ (for above 1/2 lb). Of course USD but has a nice selection with some daily deals* – quite interesting.

  • Vapcell 18650 31000 mAh 20A (Sony VTC6A rewrap – Mooch) @ $5 each (6.50 CAD)

Hi

I am a new member and think this forum is very good. Just want to contribute with the little experience I have so far.

Have ordered Sanyo NCR 18650GA 4.25 Euro and Samsung INR 18650 30Q 3.75 Euro batteries from www.ru.nkon.nl but they have high shipping rate 36 Euro. Other goods are shipped with normal shipping rate.

  So i chose to pick them up in Sweden at the post office.  Use Poste Restante.

Gets a little car ride.  <img src= " />

Also ordered Samsung INR 18650 35E batteries from www.elefun.no. 6 euros per item. Hope they are real. Others with experience from this store?

Have a nice day or night. Micro.

Any chance to display shipping rates just by entering our postal code on your website?  I usually avoid all sellers that want all my information up front before they display their shipping rates.

That’s a good point, and one that bothered me as well. An early accessible page where we could enter the # of cells and the buyers postal code would be helpful.

Another suggestion I’d like to make is, customers will be comforted if you acknowledge receiving their order. I recently placed an order and see that the charges went through on my credit card, but I have no idea if your shop is even aware that the order was placed.

Prices are good, however – 30Qs at $6.50 Cdn. is a good price. Customers need to (and I do) understand that the cost of shipping one cell is not much different from the cost of shipping a half dozen. You don’t mail much of a parcel in Canada any more for less than $14.

Based on my shopping habits alone it would go a very long way to make shipping rates up front and fast with just a postal code and quantity of order.  I agree, need at least an email confirmation that order was received.

there was no confirmation email? there should be one i will look into it to see what happened. mind telling me what order # it was? and yes shipping price in Canada are horrible. it cost me 7$ to ship something to usa but 13-19$ to ship the same thing in Canada depending where it goes. i did made a request for better pricing so i will see how that goes.

Edit: O.K., my deal is all sorted and it was probably due to my error to start with.
Thanks Guillaume!

This must be a good choice for Scandinavian customers.

I have received my orders from elefun and they ship goods to customers in Scandinavia: Norway, Sweden, Denmark only.
It was nice with a low shipping rate of 39 NOK / 3.93 Euro for 4 Samsung 18650 batteries.

I just received my order of eight 30Q’s from 18650Canada yesterday.

Good product, good price, and fast service – I placed my order on July 30 and it arrived Aug. 6, with a long weekend in the interval. I’d order again with confidence, and I’m glad Canadians once again have a reliable source.

Thanks BlueswordM for this thread and others that have chipped in.

The only place that I can get battery at reasonable price, at my location, is from Aliexpress without paying a bomb for shipment.

Just received my FT and BT 30Q from Aliya. Here’s the product link : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32349706259.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.2...

I’ve put up a short product review dated : 19 Aug 2019 04:16

Once again, thanks guys.
