Yes. A solid deal, but some "gone" deals were significantly better (assuming they were actually real deals at the time).dustNbone wrote: ↑May 12, 2018 5:24 pmhttps://hobbyking.com/en_us/multistar-h ... -pack.htmlwturber wrote: ↑May 11, 2018 4:30 pmI dunno. It seems that the "super" HobbyKing battery deals are either out of stock, or they pull a "bait and switch" by listing a sale price on their search list that magically disappears when you click on the battery. Maybe some day I'll actually find one of those really good deals where the battery is actually in stock.
That's about the best one I see at the moment. Was in stock at the time of this posting at least $70 for 6S 10Ah, not super but a workable 10Ah pack for $140. Or 20Ah for $280.
Have you ever thought about becoming a motivational speaker ? You could film your audience as you speak, and probably get half of them to commit suicide before your finished the seminar.
Well I cut up a brand new CCM BSO (Bike Shaped Object) which had (yes past tense ) no scratches, stickers were shiny and unscratched. So while taking off the crank I noticed it wobbled, taking off the brakes and the bolts were rusted, chain wasnt even rusted so the bso was a resident of a shed. Upside on a BSO like that is that no crackhead would want to make an effort to steal it if you were to lock it up correctly. Meaning a half decent U-lock and cable lock wheels.
I tend to scoop up a few multistars whenever they have one of their "super" sales. It's worked for me 90% of the time and I get about 500 cycles out of em. The sale price is okay, the batteries are decent enough.I dunno.

I would not have accepted store credit.parajared wrote: ↑Jun 08, 2018 12:29 pmI had an incident in which I bought the battery it was in stock when I checked-out and a couple weeks later Hobbyking sent me an e-mail saying that the battery was actually out of stock and that they refunded me in-store credit instead of giving me my money back. Hobbyking isn't exactly known for their customer service and I feel like I'm rolling the dice at the gambling table whenever I order from them.
I'm not sure of your point. If I order something and the store doesn't have it in stock, fine. Just give me my money back. Simple. I'm pretty sure my credit card company would agree.
All of it. I don't get the relevance.
^^ Hehe... "I would not have accepted store credit."... In the drive to the bottom (lowest cost per mile), electric assist not the clear winner?
Yeah,I would not have accepted store credit.
If you paid with a credit card, it really was your choice. Whether they liked it or not.parajared wrote: ↑Jun 08, 2018 2:46 pmYeah,I would not have accepted store credit.
exactly the point. It was a pretty crappy business practice on Hobbyking's part.
It wouldn't have been unreasonable for them to offer the store credit option to me (maybe add an additional 10% for my troubles) but it should have been my choice; either that or give me my money back for the goods that they didn't provide.
In my casual observation, most of those stinky gasbike engines don't last longer than an e-bike battery, so there's that consumable item too.
