18650.UK An example of how Lithium Batteries SHOULD be sold.

Just got my latest order from the guys at 18650.UK. Stellar service as usual.
Just thought I’d show you guys how they send them, and what is written on them – a lesson to all sellers in my opinion.
If only all shops were so considerate, and well looking out for your safety rather than just making a quick buck. They are also very well priced.
Even the invoice had warnings and advice – they are traceable too since 18650 writes their name on them. Top service.
Using code BLF10 gives a further 10 % off.

I agree, bought twice from them recently and need to order a few more 21700’s. Good service and prices.

Code “18650” gives you about 18.65% off. Not sure if it still works but I think it does.

The little plastic cases are neat, but what’s up with the writing on that 18650? Never install, carry or handle? That’s quite a warning.

I’ve placed a few orders with them. Great every time.
For the slight saving, long delivery time and risk of fake, why bother with China.

I’ve ordered from them twice, good service and proper packaging both times. Planning to get some more cells from them soon.

Agreed that 18650.co.uk are excellent. I ‘ve bought all my cells from them after recieving some fake 30Qs from Banggood in 2019.

The plastic 18650 cases that the cells arrive in are actually quite handy for storing cells, they’re not waterproof but great for carrying a spare cell in a backpack.

Those cases are also quite useful for spacers Wink I used mine to make the 21700 fit better in the 26650 space Thumbs Up still a little slop, but a couple of rounds of insulating tape sorted it.

Another fan of 18650.uk, here.
I find the compact single cell casings extremely useful and friendly for pockets, pocket organisers, pouches and the like.

Possibly… if you roughed them up with sandpaper. They’re clear enough to read battery wraps through.

Is their an easy way to tell if your Banggood 30q’s are fake? I got some and the performance seems pretty good, I just don’t trust China sellers in general.
