Good sources of battery packs in the UK?




I would appreciate any recommendation for where I can buy/get made up a 10 cell 500 AR pack in the UK. I know about Overlander but are there any other favourites you guys use?

Thanks in advance

Any radioshack store in the UK sell batteries quite cheap, but they only sell cells and not packs, if that makes sense? If they havn't got the ones you want they will order them. Overlander are good too, well their delivery is, i ordered 6 props on sunday morning and they came this morning(Wednesday).

Overlander are as good as any. Other options are West London Models http://www.westlondonmodels.co.uk/ and F2A Supplies http://www.f2asupplies.freeserve.co.uk/

Thanks guys - I shall try all suggested outlets - I want a pack made-up for me rather than doing it myself so I'll give Radio Shack a miss.

For 'standard' packs I tend to shop around (Al's Hobbies, West London models etc.) but Overlander are hard to beat and I've always had good turnaround on orders. Their 'own brand' Nimh packs are excellent value too.
