All,

Thanks for the info - assuming the shipping is cheaper with the Gulf shop --> the batteries are far more expensive.
In comparison with http://www.haiyinstore.com probably haiyinstore will be cheaper if more Lipos are bought.

Has anyone experience buying these straight from ebay? See attached example?

Take Care

I ordered 5 lipos from Haiyin in Feb 2014 details as follow:
2 x 3000mAh 4S 35C for USD 73.24
2 x 3600mAh 4S 30C for USD 75.79
1 x 4000mAh 4S 30C for USD 40.38
Shipping                  for USD 103.86 Fedex International Express
Total                           USD 293.27
Just under QAR 1100


Ordered on 4 Feb and got it on 6 Feb. No letters asked for.

Try getting these prices here in Doha and you will be paying at least twice as much.

Have been using Haiyin 2200mAh for over 8 mths and they are still good hardly any swelling.

Chris,

Thanks,
1 at the moment your option looks the most promising.
2 I  might do a test  and try to order straight from Ebay
3 I also got a contact number of the Hayin representative in Dubai - spoke with him and awaiting pricing and shipping details. If something interesting comes out I will post it on the Forum. Would be good if we could establish and maintain a route to get  reasonable priced Lipos in Doha.

Maybe we could combine our Lipo request in a  large order which would make it interesting for the Dubai representative!

I just joined your site and I am also looking to have batteries shipped in.

One of the options I may try is to ship from the US using Borderlinx. It is an Aramex competitor and lo and behold uses DHL but the good part is that they ship to a Doha address. Or of course you can pickup at the DHL office. Anyone try this before?

Reason I'm looking at this option is that they actually have a specific policy regard lithium battery shipments which is the IATA limits and that it has to be packaged right instead of the Aramex 'just say no' policy.

Shipping costs are as far as I can determine the same as Aramex except they seem to have a volume multiplier for larger sized light packages so large RC airplanes may be out.

Anyway, I'm placing the order this evening to try out and will post the results shortly unless of course someone beats me to the punch.

Well placed my 2nd order from Haiyin on Friday and expect to get it on Thursday. Too bad I placed the order on a weekend. The delivery was initiated only on Monday. 6 x 200 mAh 3S 35C for QAR 730 about QAR 121 per piece. How much cheaper do you want it to go? I know that Hobby king is cheap but I have used the turnigy lipos when I first started and after about 4 cycles, they start to puff up. The current batch of Haiyin have lasted me almost a year and I fly almost every weekend and use all my batteries. At least 40 charges. So in my opinion, it is worth the little bit extra. Delivery is fast. Had a friend who order some 6S and he got it within 4 days.

Update my previous post on ordering batteries via Borderlinx.

Got 4 4000mA 30Cs ordered from a US online shop, shipped via Borderlinx and they arrived without any issues in my office. Now you do need to prepay to ship them though but all in all no issues.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to buy LiPo batteries and cannot find anything at the moment.

I am looking for 2s or 3s with minimum 5000mAh and minimum 35C.

Any ideas where to find some?

thank you
