Something odd tho. I couldn’t click the BUY or BUY NOW buttons using Firefox 22.0 or Seamonkey browsers. IE6 wouldn’t work either. Ended up using IE7. yukkk Any ideas why?

I put in an order for 4 pairs. I’ve always had pretty good luck with WB stuff – no bad orders so far.

I’m going to put in a special request that they wrap my batteries in silicone Samsung Galaxy S II i9100 cases for this order. My last battery order came wrapped in a couple of iphone 5 cases which I had no use for.

Not sure, I ordered via Firefox. Something with your local settings though. My order seemed to go through fine, but I didn’t post it, so nobody knows how many I bought…except for the NSA… and I was going to look for backpacks today too Sad

Check that you don't have any plugins/extensions that are blocking you being able to click things.

Check for viruses/malware.

Speaking for myself, I find that most of the time it's something else that I'm running that's blocking me.

Can someone please start a new group buy for this same battery? I tried using wbqymonster to buy 3100mah protected cells but it does not seem to work anymore.

highly unlikely to happen since there was a group buy for protected NCR18650B (with limited quantities) and then again group buy for unprotected NCR18650B batteries…

Hopefully there are enough members like me who want the protected cells but didn’t know about the earlier group Sad

I think this wouldn't be so easy. We need about 50 pairs for the firts protected battery group buy. Without this number the group buy would not take place.

It started and in many flashlight forums of the world the infomation was spreaded (here, in CPF and I know a big german flashlightforum. I think someone has posted it in fonarevka and forolinternas.com, too) - at the end they sell about 120 pairs. I think a new group buy will not enter the 50 pairs, because many members do not buy only one pair and do not need more at the moment. I bought 3 pairs and would wait for these, use them for 1-2 weeks and then I would know,  if I need more.

Light up the darkness.

Hopefully people will demand some soon, I would be willing to buy 5 sets myself. I have a lot of new high-draw lights and only blue trustfires to run them.

Well instead of waiting for a new group buy I went ahead and bought 4 pairs of Panasonic protected 3100mah 18650s from Wallbuys. I got 8 cells for about $49 dollars with the volume discount and a 10% coupon code. It was $12.32ish per pair which per mah is actually a better deal then this group buy. Just thought I would let everybody else know of an alternative.
Thanks

The GB was for the 3400mAh batteries, not 3100mAh.

Never said it was, all I intended to do was pass on a good deal, and I just stated that per mah of capacity my purchase was a better deal and that it was a suitable alternative for those who missed out on the 3400mah group buy.

On a per $/mah ratio the Sanyo 2600mAh batteries would make even more sense.

I was comparing Panasonic cells as I am led to believe they are more similar in characteristics to each other than to other brands. If you have a bone to pick with me please just private message me as there is no need to spam the boards with your trivial comments which add very little to discussion and seem to just be a means to discredit my posts. The snobbery from CPF seems to have leaked over.
Thank you

My goal is not to offend, nor do I have a bone to pick with you.  If anything it feels as if you have a bit of a chip on your shoulder from your time on cpf... which I can understand.

I've simply pointed out first that the batteries you ordered, while a great deal, are different from those in the GB, and then that there are other even cheaper options of similar quality, and better $/performance ratio.

that’s how my six batteries arrived as well.

Sirius9: you seem to have lots of trouble with your customs office, since you’re always negative about shipping practises that’s not exactly as you want them, but that works fine for the rest of us!
i don’t own an iphone 5, so i’ll try to give the free iphone cases away.

Surely those cases, cheap as they are, can’t be cheaper than bubble wrap?

i got 4 yellow, 2 blue.

is it ok to send li-ion cells? or are they using the cases to hide the fact that they send li-ion batteries?

The problem is essentially that wallbuys doesnt want to send the invoice with the products.
Before paypal started working in my country (April this year) I could order almost anything that I wanted and had money for it, but when paypal started to work here, customs guys started to open 99% incoming packages and if they find invoice inside all is good, then I pay taxes according to products value and thats all. But the real problem is where there is no invoice, then customs workers assume the value of the goods as they wish! Oftenly they google products name and pick the first price that pops up. I bought android tablet for my brother, paid it about $60, there was no invoice in the package so customs guys estimated its value at $100 and becaose of that I had to pay additional $30 for tax & customs fees, with the invoice I would pay only $10.
Recently I ordered i4 charger, no invoice, estimated value by local customs = $40 Flat Stare

Fasttech, HKE, CNQ, Supbeam… no problem to send an invoice,
Wallbuys = our system does not allow us to do that!!!

Wallbuys sends an invoice with every package, so I see no problem there.

! really, hmm JM26 was my first order from them and after purchase I send them email asking to include invoice (usually none of the chinese retailers do that automatically) and here’s what they responded with:
Quote:
The rules and regulations of The Customs Declaration Form is a unified system in our shop at present. I’m afraid that we can not alter it in a short time.

now, that sounded to me like : we can’t, pi$$ off Smile
batteries from first gb are coming tomorrow, I will report back, did I get iphone or samsung case Smile

My wife is some kind of expert when it comes to iphone accessories.
The 2 case’s I received where white silicone with a gray button.
