    Batteries from Fasttech?

    Hey gang. Just wondering if anyone has ordered Samsung 18650 batteries from Fasttech? They sell an 8 pack for about the price I can buy 3 locally.
    Any dramas getting them into the country/delivered?
    I'll be buying 3 and a Nitecore D4 locally next week so I can fire the RX200S TrackDay is sending my way... but I'm sure I'm going to need more. $45 roughly for 8 "genuine" cells from China (I'm told FT are reputable and genuine actually means genuine...), $12 per cell sourced locally...

    I've been buying off FT for years and ime authentic means authentic. I've never bought batteries from them but i think you should be ok. People get batts off them all the time.

    I only use Supersports600 on ebay for batteries, never had a problem with them and always genuine batts. If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

    Now worth the risk, plus they cant be sent Expedited air so you will be waiting months for them. Try Supersports600, most here source from him or lanplus_australia on ebay.

    I think the fire in the name means they are certain to vent and f*ck up....I'd never buy batteries from fasttech, don't care if they state "authentic" or not, I've brought too much bad sh!t from fasttech, I'd never trust them with batteries....those knock off fleshlights might go alright though...

    i got a couple of the sammy 30q's from fasttech few years back.

    they were indeed authentic and preformed reasonably well. (i actually had to put some effort into venting them)
    but without any tangible proof, they didn't perform like they came out of the top shelf bin.
    two of them would never charge higher then 4V.

    Supersports600 on ebay is the recommended seller round these parts.
    Might not be the cheapest but you will always get top shelf quality parts from him
