Beware Of The Shills !!!
I end up buying most of mine from hobbyking and mainly Turnigy or Zippy mainly as there's not a massive choice of sellers in the UK that don't cost a fortune.

If you're after a specific size / number of cells maybe post what they are and people can help point you in the right direction.

I have never had a problem with either Turnigy or Zippy and the prices are competitive. I also buy 20c - 30c batteries because that's all I need and all I reasonably expect.

I've been buying Admiral lipos from Motion RC since Hobby Poople went OOB. Reasonable price and they check them before shipping.

I miss HP for batteries, really good batteries and very good price when on sale.

I have been getting lipos from value hobby, rcjuice mostly.

Buzz.

I was only buying Admiral batteries as I had been impressed with them. Never had any issues but had 3 go bad recently. Now I am a little gun shy to buy more.

I have bought some through Value Hobby (Gforce) and I am pleased with them.

I used to buy Turnigy from HobbyKing but no longer buy anything from them as I refuse to pay their outrageous shipping prices. Actually been a year or more since I have bought anything from them. I guess they could have changed.

Let’s see. We’re in the Beginner Training Area (Aircraft-Electric) so it must be for pacemakers.

Try Banggood.com ? they offer the usual Made in China (where 99% are mfg'd) batteries before being relabelled with 'whatever' name) with shipping included prices. Acceptable (from China) shipping times too.

I've purchased a bunch of batteries from 2200 3S to 6S 4000 from Revolectrix. Very good batteries and haven't had any failures. They stand behind their products, offer competitive prices and quick shipping. I've received an order from Singapore to my house in Manitoba, Canada in less than 3 days. Sounds unbelievable but its true. They ship via FedEx & UPS and shipping rates are good as well if order is reasonable size. Nothing but good so far!

Been using Value Hobbys for years I go with the 30C G Force no problems long life. That being said I take good care of my batteries.
If you want a great charge that can do 6 batteries at once get Cellpro 6
