Hi,

I'm looking to do a DIY triple XR-E cree bike light setup. Got the LED's coming from cutter, and have everything for the light but struggling to find a place for a good 14.8V 3-4 Ah battery.

I was looking at making my own from www.batteryspace.com, but shipping to the UK was $90!! almost the cost of the battery parts.

So looking for help on best place to get Li-ion (polymer preferred) batterys from, where shipping to the UK is actually reasonable!. Don't mind if its pre done or if I have to put it together myself providing they sell all the PCB's etc etc

Any help appreciated ...

Cheers

Andy

I got mine from the same place as doogs and all went well. But you can get stung with customs/inport charges. I did on my 3rd order.(but not on the first 2 orders).

Look for any online RC (remote control) hobby site. The batteries you are looking for are very common for rc helicopter and airplanes. I know from another forum dedicated to rc helicopters that there are plenty of places in Europe that have what you need.

Ditto what kingair said. Due to your shipping costs from the US - I would try and pick up a Lipo 4s pack from a local source. It should cost lest than 40quid - especially if you avoid the high discharge C rated packs,
Get something with balance plugs and also get a charger with balancing capabilities. Something like the emax from unitedhobbies for 55USD.
