Aliya's Battery Store shows nothing for Canadians?

Last week I stumbled on Aliya’s Battery Store only to find they don’t sell the miscellaneous LiIons anymore – just LiFePO4 power storage units.
Link

Clicking on any standard cell icon results in “Sorry, no matches for your refined search”

Anybody have any info on what happened?

I never bought from them having “18650BatteryStore” being able to ship Canada. But they were regarded as a legitimate seller of many makes and formats.

Recently the price of li-ion batteries has gone up like crazy about 30%.

Maybe that’s the reason they don’t stock those less popular cell. I can still see VTC6 and 30Q(limited stock) available.

But the price for VTC6, like I mentioned, has gone up about 25-30%.

Throwing a curveball or is it only me?

Same here. I bought from them in the past without any issue, but for the last few months I see only LiFePO listings.

I still have some of their 18650 in my cart since last year but now they indicate that these items cannot ship to Canada. I can see that there are recent reviews so they still sell common batteries, but unfortunately not shipping to Canada anymore.

Ah!, So my ISP location would block any info about the cells (being Canadian).

Thanks; clears things up. Was wondering about LTC’s comment.

It may help since it is not a “general” thing. Maybe adding something related to the countries for which they cannot ship Thumbs Up

Sorry, I missed out some info that might be helpful….

At 1st, I can’t see any listing for Liion Batteries too. I have been buying quite a lot of batteries from them, I PM’ed them through AX messenger. They release/reactivate the listing I need(VTC6 and 30Q).

From there, I placed my order for VTC6 and 30Q just less than 2 weeks ago. As of now, I can still see the listing for VTC6 and 30Q.

Pierre Poutine did not leave a lot of fans in his wake Silly

What makes you reference Canada to a Quebec dish?
