Re: (2) 11.1V 4000mAh rechargeable LI-PO batteries - price is OK, but how about that shipping charge?

Because its drop shipped from Hong Kong for one thing. For another thing,
Ebay charges sellers a percentage of the final price but not the shipping
cost therefore some sellers pad their profits by charging a large amount for
the shipping and handling.
There are several Ebay sellers from time to time who supposedly ship from
Los Angeles and charge $25 to $30 shipping on a $24.95 plane but will not
allow local pickup. If they would be honest and maybe bring up the cost of
the plane a bit but charge real shipping I would probably buy from them but
since they don't, I wont.

In the case of these LiPo packs you would still be getting a pair of 4
amp packs for less than $20 each but how good could the quality be?
