LIPO batteries, best place to buy?

Post by cgokey » Jul 21 2019 1:58pm

I looked recently on HobbyKing and they don't seem to be selling Lipo batteries or very limited selection. Where is the best place to get a decent price of these now?

Thanks,
Chris

You most certainly did NOT look on hobbyking. For shame.

HobbyKing has less choice that it once had, but they have better batteries that are suitable for powerful ebikes. I like the Turnigy Graphene.

HK lipo prices had raised, but shipping is now free and fast.

You can buy direct at manufacturers, but you meed to buy a lot to absorb the brokerage and shipping cost. I find that, buying a dozen is a better deal at HK.
