Alternative source of LiPos

Well,my initial source (HobbyKing) is having ABSURD shipping rates on relatively cheap LiPos
53 USD for a 7USD 3S 2200 -_-

So,I now need a new source of cheap,yet decent quality LiPos

Dealmetric also has quite absurd shipping rates to my location

Any other suggestions?
Need Turnigy type quality (cheap is fine as long as it's worth it) with a reasonable shipping cost to Dubai,UAE

Have you checked Revolectrix? I know their shipping rates from Singapore to the USA are reasonable, not sure how much difference there will be going to Dubai. Their batteries are not super cheap but they are not overly expensive either. Only down side is they don't make small batteries. I think last I looked 2200 cells were as small as they went.

Use a different shipping option, Express Mail Service to UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (Lipo) 0g - 500g $26.19

Looks like you're choosing the most expensive shipping option and then complaining that it's too expensive?

Alternatively buy more, why would you only buy one for that cheap?

I suggest Hobby King.

Buy more than a single battery, throw in everything you can think of that you might want to buy. Grab some LEDs, some tools, throw a couple motors in, more batteries, heat shrink, some wires, maybe some soldering bits, a watt meter or two, a couple becs, some servos...

I use HobbyKing Ira NZ
The high is as soon as I add a LiPo the only option I have is fedex express
They are currently in dispute with their postal agency and cannot ship LiPos any other way.
The reason I am complaining is because that 500g LiPo option has disappeared over night ._.

So no matter I buy a single LiPo or 10
The option is 53 USD per kg which is certainly not feasible with he big batts I get
