Batteries in Canada?


#1

Anyone got a good source for big batteries in Canada? The Hobby King guys don’t seem to ship the big ones to Canada, and I’m finding a lot of other websites not allowing it either:

Would love some suggestions if you guys have them.

The last time I ordered batteries a couple yrs ago for my tricycle was from a place in China called EV assembly - I made an 48V15AHpack using the Headways – I had thought they carried other kinds but looks like now they only carry the LiFePO4 cells and packs.
The Headway 8Ah has a good discharge of 200A continous… I take that with a grain of salt
I liked the headways for the easy connection system
Here is my 15Ah cells for my bike


For the covers I took some Lexan and melted it over a piece of 2x4 as it was the same width I needed - I would use a more fire proof box for flying - but this is on the back of my trike so if it catches on fire no harm to me.

Good luck in your quest

I’m also in Canada. Might have to ship them to a friend in the US then have them ship them to Canada.

@dzubot - I’d recommend against that. I actually was part of the Bonka group buy that @pdwhite arranged, and while it took forever and I was almost the last one to receive batteries, they did get here.

Shipping batteries is tricky, and even reshipping them from a US destination might (will) cause trouble. These batteries are Class 9 dangerous good, and you technically need a licensed shipper to make these shipments, so I would try to get a dropship from the mfgr if you can…

I’m hopeful mine should arrive soon as I was also part of the bonka buy group! :disappointed:

genstattu do ship to the CA, but if your battery power over 100w, you need to pay for dangerous goods transportation fee。

Hi folks, I just received four 14S 10Ah batteries from GenceAce and I’m probably going to sell two at some points after my testings. They were not ordered for a ppg project but since the esc’s can handle 14s I think they could do the job (and that’s why I’ll keep two).

I’m in Eastern Canada (NS).
