I’ve been reading this forum for quite some time while putting together a plan for my electric longboard build. Recently, I have been trying to find a battery supplier. I have scoured every inch of google, and I just came across this gem:
They offer what looks to be genuine batteries that are “ordered from Authorized Samsung SDI distributor” (quoted directly from their Samsung 25R page). Also, there is a 14-day money back guarantee.
Their price breakdown for both batteries is as follows:
10 batteries - $4.60 30 batteries - $4.20 50 batteries - $3.95 100 batteries - $3.80 500 batteries - $3.70 1000 batteries - $3.60
On top of all of that, they are based in the U.S. (Georgia Specifically) and offer free shipping to anywhere in the US. They do not ship outside the U.S.
This is, by far, the best price on these batteries I have seen anywhere.
However, I do not have the capital to order 1000 batteries. I only need 36. So, is anyone interested? If so, could someone make a group buy? I am not trust-level 3 yet, so I cannot make one myself.
Edit: I just heard from the site that we would have to ship to one address to get bulk prices, so whoever makes the group buy would then have to ship to the various people who ordered. This means that people out of the U.S. could join in.
So far we are at 141 batteries, which puts us in the $3.80 bracket (I will update this as more people comment)
