Just a month ago I ordered Nitecore NL166 CR123A cells from Fasttech. I shipped them to a friends address in the UK. It seems that this is no longer possible. Is there any way to get cells from Fasttech, either UK or EU countries? I am reluctant to try other chinese sites other than Fasttech due to many issues I had with them in the past.
Theres some tightening of postage systems from Asia at the moment due to the Malaysia Airlines flight, one would assume thats why. So no, they wont ship batteries to most places ATM. There used to be options for me, now it just says the warehouse can not ship to my destination.
I would assume its temporary. How temporary I have no idea.
Ive found those Euro stores to be expensive, and IIRC postage is expensive too even if in the same location country.
Id try Calvin at Illumination Supply (Calvin is a member here). You pay postage over FT, but the item prices are very close. I ordered on the 1st June, last Sunday, and according to tracking it has arrived in Australia already. I dont have it yet, but tracking says its passed through an Australian sorting facility on the 6th and is on its way to me. Thats pretty respectable postage times, Ill have it Monday or Tuesday (Monday is a public holiday here).
Order enough to make it worthwhile, my order total was $101. He has some good prices on Energizer CR123’s. I got a heap of those, and some 16340s and 14500s plus cases and a 4sevens 2xCR123 light just to say I own a 4sevens.
