There is always a second option for me as well my current order of 5 2s 4500 mah and 5 1100 mah 2s life packs are on the way now for 8 bucks shipping. The ups option was 23 something but the fed ex option was only 8 something. And this was from the west warehouse even though east is closer because the west had the 2s 4500mah 30c lipos for 9 bucks in the 9.99 items section. This is regularly a 24 dollar pack.
Are you sure there wasn't a second option for you???

So this is your first post ever and you get on here to bash Hobbyking?? I'm not accusing you but just asking??? Where are you trying to get these shipped?? I'm finding this hard to believe. Maybe I'm wrong.
But I just got on the HK east and selected 6 1s 750 mah nano techs being there 3 bucks each and you state your buying 3 dollar 1s packs. Both of my shipping options are under 9 bucks. The fed ex is only 6 something.
So I decided to try 6 of the largest 1s packs I could find. They was 24 bucks each and like 4500 mah. Still same 2 very reasonable shipping options both again under 9 bucks and one is 6 something.
So I'm just wondering where you are at to be getting charged that much shipping. Please I would like more info on this. Where at in the U.S. Do you want These shipped???

Swiss is only offered from the international warehouse. So you are not on the HK east USA sight. Just cause you see a American flag on the page don't mean your on the USA warehouse page. Scroll to the top of the list of options on the left of screen in the classic sight not the mobile sight. There is a long list of options to choose from including planes batteries chargers and at the very top it says global warehouse click on that then you will see east and west options pop up then double click on east then check again.

Shipping batteries

Shipping batteries

All Shipping options to New Zealand for batteries are now gone... a 2100mah LiFe receiver pack ($12)... shipping is $60.

Does not matter if you pick international or Australia, both options are about the same... something to forget.

You used to get batteries sent for peanuts...

It seems you can't get any batteries now to NZ. I tried yesterday for some 3S ones that i bought only a month or so earlier, now i can no longer get them, nor anything smaller like a 1300mah 3S for a mini quad. Just get a stupid restricted shipping alert and to remove the items from my cart. How paranoid are these freight companies? has there ever been any recorded incidents involving loose packed lipo batteries?

ivrotor.com looks like a good local alternative for the small batteries.

I'm going to dig at HK and find out what the story is.
