    I don't know their is a Chinese battery manufacturer (did put a video on the forum where it was included in the bunch being tested, i think @Puff the Magic Dragon may have also uploaded the same video if i recall correctly) where they have a 9000mAh 18650 battery so possible for the Chinese to have the balls to actually make such false claims. Can't remember the exact outcome of the testing but the so called 9000mAh turned out to be about 1800 lol, the amps was also well overstated and had a shocking internal resistance.

    These are the only batteries manufactured in China i would use even if they list max discharge rather than continuous and both are overstated (the Chinese just can't seem to control their impulse to over egg things) like @ivc_mixer i give them a positive vote based on using the batteries they are better or a match for any other batteries i have used!

    So I emailed Tesiyi last week already asking them about shipping to SA. Still awaiting a response from them on this. I have also started looking at alternate ways of getting this done but will keep all informed once I know more.

    I am honestly not sure. Never seen one before in SA, so cannot comment. If you want, you can be the guinea pig for the rest of us :)

    @ivc_mixer I think I'll just pick up some 30Q's or summat locally. They will do fine for me. Please just scratch me off the list if you don't mind.

    Many thx.

    Okay, so what started off as a honest initiative may not come to pass. Tesiyi themselves is not responding to any of my queries and neither is the person who said he may be able to assist with this. I will not give up and will continue trying but to those who said they would like to order, please note that this may not happen soon, if at all. I am sorry for the inconvenience but know that my never-say-die attitude will keep working on this until I get some new Tesiyi batteries.

    Sorry Silver. Didn't know there was such a group else I would have created it there.

    I was looking at getting 6 myself and my wife wants another 4 as well.
