View Full Version : Hobbyking taking forever and good source of battries

02-18-2011, 12:52 AM
I had ordered on 28 Jan from HK and got reply order shipped on 29 JAN , So after almost 2+ weeks i went back to check whats wrong and it looks like they never shipped it ... just sent me fake mail. The tracking number finally shows drop off at 15th Feb ... 16 days from order !!! Dont know when it will arrive.

Anyhow any good sites where i can have proper shipping and not wonder weather the order is going to come or not.

For ex Fedex delivers to my house in 4 days from US ( thats much better than delivery times of some indian vendors ).

Sadly Sparkfun/polulu etc dont sell batteries. I will prefer a Indian Vendor but outside india will do too.

Looking for -
Real Lipo - 300 ma onwards battries ( Not Laptop Lipo cells clubbed together like robokits )
Reliable on time delivery - I dont have time to wait a month
Variety - Would love if vendor has variety
Affordable if possible

I did check indian rc vendors most have weird pricing so could not decide. Nex also stocks Lipo but like 70 % of stuff on their site its all out of stock always.

Guys any recommendations ???

@Vikas: Try these (clickie) (http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=87&products_id=157), I use them for my homebrew projects, and they are pretty cheap too.

Hi vikas,
I started using Nokia BL5C battery the orignal battery 3.6/4.2V @ 800 mAh costs 300 Rs from a nokia store(with bill and warranty) Why not use those they are standard and good quality.....no shippment cost or import duty!!
