Where to buy 18650/26550s online, to Australia?

Hey guys,

Does anyone know an online store that stocks quality cells and ships to Australia? GearBest and FastTech don’t so they’re out of the question. I know I can purchase them from local sources but they cost nearly double the amount.

Banggood is definitely a no since three of my last orders didn’t arrive, and on-top of that they tried to scam me out of ~$80.

Thanks

G'Day Noob, smile

 

AFAIK, Banggood has stopped shipping Li-Ion Batteries to Australia due to the problems they encountered recently.

I had a shipment caught up in the mess, but they shipped it again, this time successfully.

And having dealt with them for more then 3 years, I doubt that they were trying to scam you.

But you may get an individual customer support employee that leaves a lot to be desired.

 

Btw, the only current sources I've heard about are on AliExpress

 

Best Regards,

George

Occasionally some of the Aus vape shops will have ok prices on batteries but unless you happen to live close by it doesn’t help, after shipping is added into the mix it’s back to >2x the price of BG.

Even Ali is getting expensive now.

Supersports600 is a well regarded Aussie eBay retailer, based in Sydney. Prices are higher than buying from China, but great customer service, genuine items, and delivery in 2-3 days makes up for it! He also designs the protection circuits for his own Blazar brand and Keeppower.
