Epoch Batteries

Has anyone ordered from these guys? Cheapest shipping rates I could find of all the others in US when you only want to order one battery.
Edit: Seems they are affiliated with 18650 Battery Store because their order confirmation email came from them.

i have bought many Epoch batteries from 18650batterystore.com

 

The way i understood it was that Epoch is 18650batterystore's "house" brand. Where they rewrap batteries like the Vapcell H10, samsung 30Q, Samsung 50G, and others for their own sale. 

 

I especially like the epoch 14500 (H10), and the 18350's are good too. The 21700 5000mah (50G) are really good too. the 18650 3000mah Epochs are OK, not sure if they are 30Q or not, they're not great but not bad at all. Kind've like a 30Q i guess, just a reliable middle of the road performance/ runtime.

I almost ordered from 18650BatteryStore until I saw the same battery at Epoch Battery with cheaper shipping. Same support for both companies so I trust them to be legit. $3.99 shipping up to $50, free after that.

Whoa! thats a great price on shipping. i know where ill be ordering my next epoch batteries form at least! i actually have held off on ordering batteries from 18650batterystore because of the shipping (they're not alone, it is  not uncommon i've noticed for battery companies t charge $5.5-$8 for shipping). 

 

EDIT: i just looked up Epoch's site. Unfortunately all of their prices are higher than 18650batterystore, so unless you are ordring 1 or 2 batteries then it may be more to order form their site. The only battery that is not marked up significantly is the 18350. but still, i need to order a bunch of those so thatll save me

When cost of gas goes up it effects nearly everything. Shutting down the pipeline, moving away from being an energy importer from a nett exporter all has consequences. So yes…expect prices of everything to increase, wanna do something about it, consider who you vote for carefully.
