As many Canadians have found out, USPS will no longer ship lipo batteries internationally. This means no longer being able to buy Gens Ace lipos, a favorite brand for many, especially among surface RC owners, or any other lipos from hobbypartz or any other seller out of the U.S. Even if we could convince such U.S. based sellers to ship via courier, the brokerage fees we'd get raped with make it not even worth it (unless you want the battery really bad and are willing to do whatever it takes to acquire it).
I came across some forum posts of people buying genuine Gens Ace products directly out of China from SDSHobby (Cylcone Toy) and decided to give them a try. Prices are not as great as hobbypartz but still good for quality lipos. Experience was good so far, haven't charged or tested the batteries yet (will update when I do).
These are the new "overseas" green/black label Gens Ace. Orange/black label is for U.S. market (hobbypartz.com)
