OK so where are people buying their Lithium batteries from. Royal Mail has slapped a no transport on these. Courier prices are now on average £15.00 plus for delivery alone

We buy ours from Condor Group and carriage is no where near that.

 

We only buy Renata.

 

I can get them with free delivery from Aldridges or toolbank but they are a lot more expensive and don't stock all sizes.

We only buy Renata.

We also purchase from Condor Group

 

Just checked the last invoice of Renata CR2032 and based on an outer of 300 (30 x 10 boxes) we pay £24 less than their list price and free shipping.

 

or £8 less per 100 and enjoy early settlement discount too.

 

We charge £3 retail or £7.50 if fitted in a vehicle remote or other device etc..

Renata is my preferred brand, but not fond of the fact you can't just pop open the new lithium packaging.

That's all thanks to European health and safety rules according to my Condor Rep and he says all his customers have complained about the new packaging.
