Battery Prices

Having seen the review on BLM-1 "alternatives" and the Uniross being the "Best", it then all comes down to price

So at 15.99 and 3 for 2, is this the best deal available

Could this be the new Chinese year of the "Thrifty"

Re: Battery Prices

We I use them regularly as my supplier of choice. Always been quick and I always get an email confirming the order, or multiple emails if the items are despatched separately.
For me they've been friendly on the phone & prompt to answer e-mails via the web site, so I'd send them a query if I were you.
Good luck

Re: Battery Prices

I got the confirmation, and it said I would get another on dispatch. account tracking showed it split but dispatched over 2 days but no emails or delivery.

Will contact

Cheers

Re: Battery Prices

Things got a bit slow straight after New Year, but I have received all my orders and many other that I know use them say they are OK.

I use them regularly, and have always found their prices and delivery to be excellent. I once had a faulty CF card from them and got a replacement by return of post.
