I will move your thread in the only area where you can post your promotions, take notice.
It also tells you in our forum rules, which you might want to look at.

For business wholesale only?
Thats cool but would get a ton of traffic if open to the hobby side of things.

Can you tell me more about your idea?

We are only a wholesaler now, but so many people have requested individual sales I am considering it.

Sub ohm vapers are battery hobbyists by default, same with box mods pushing 75watts.
And as a whole vapers are always looking for a deal.

Gotcha. I was thinking doing a month-long promo event where we sell deluxe packs to anyone at a discounted rate. Something I hope would bring more people to our store.

Cool I could use a brick of batteries. or maybe you could put together an enthusiast pack with like four of the top rated/used batteries in a sampler pack?

Run with it make it your own and good luck with your venture. The way I see it the more we help each other out as vapers and suppliers be it eliquids batteries mods bases flavors the more it strengthens our vaping community and at the same time encouraging and supporting small businesses alike.

You use much of the space on your website warning everyone about fakes, and go as far as saying "trusted suppliers" don't take the time or can't tell the difference. Why should we trust you? Your business is out of China, you post pictures of Chinese production line workers. "American & Swiss battery fanatics"? bullshit. You don't real the rules of the forum, you can't post a proper link. Usually the accuser is the perpetrator who is re-wrapping the batteries. Bro

Hahaha wtf. Are you saying I'm not American? Skype me bro.

Our batteries never enter China, they stay in Hong Kong. That's a pic from a factory inspection in Shenzhen we did in December.

You should trust me because we are an American / Swiss team working in Asia. What do you mean I don't read the rules? This is not a sales thread it's an introduction thread that's why I posted in new members. Was never my intention to sell. You see any selling going on?

It's good input. I should put my face on the site to build trust. I'll do that actually. Also from the homepage:

II. Only GRADE A cells
  • Grade A: Batteries perform to manufacturer specifications.
  • Grade B: Batteries under-perform or have other defects.
  • Grade C: Batteries are used, repackaged, salvaged, or damaged.
I'm not sure why you're so angry, or why you think I'm Chinese, but, Skype?

I want to sell eventually yeah... but not now. This is my first thread and is not a sales thread. Not sure what the problem is :( Why do you think I'm hiding something? I'm an American, 27 years old. I've been in China since I was 21. I'm more than happy to Skype with you and talk about batteries or whatever.

I am really not trying to sell in this thread. I wanted to ask what the rules for selling were and introduce myself. I apologize if I was grumpy in my first reply to you. Seriously though, what exactly is the problem?

Ah sorry, I mean MAINLAND China. Hong Kong is a very different place, but politically it's part of the PRC.

edit: Also worth mentioning it's more than a city - it's a bunch of islands and they have their own "administration"

BTW The pic Robert B posted is of EV battery packs headed to Germany. Note the big blue vent that is necessary for the fumes generated by soldering. Those are probably Panasonic cells if I remember correctly.

Here's a pic of my partner standing at the other end of the building just because I have been accused of being a Chinese imposter: https://www.facebook.com/batterybro...913377632040141/915041721873732/?l=3cb6335932

For the sake of curiosity, what designs are you going for?

Flat Top Protected?
Flat Top Unprotected?
Button Top Protected?
Button Top Unrotected?

All four?

No problem on my end, but if you want to be taken "seriously", don't bash other trusted sellers to push your own products. It's insulting. And to pretend your not trying to sell anything, is as well. Maybe some people will bite on your $20 discount sales promotion. Not being forthright out of the gate doesn't give you any credibility, and makes you look like a cheap-ass sneaking through the back door to promote your business.... That's it. I'll say no more.

I'm totally sorry if I offended you.

What do you mean "bash other trusted sellers to push your own products"? I don't think I bashed anyone? Also I didn't ask anyone to push my product? Please explain I think you have my confused with someone else. I just joined this forum like 2 days ago. :confused:

Not being forthright? Sorry man I have no idea what you're talking about. If you check , a mod moved this thread here. I posted it in new user introductions...

your domain does not exist


You had to delete the )? from the address bar after clicking the link.

The forum software automatically converted the address to a clickable domain and included the trailing )? as part of the address since he had typed the domain address in parenthesis and not inside url bbcode.


Battery Bro, an easy way to avoid that issue is to put a space between the parenthesis and the url
( address ) instead of (address)

Oops! Nice find I'll edit the original post.

@zaroba By the way I like snakes too... I had a rainbow boa for a week before it escaped. It was a completely wild boa someone had caught so everytime i went near it that thing would snap at me and hiss. Very crazy. I have also seen some wild bushmasters and cobras. What species are you housing atm?

I will second the notion of selling to individuals, and not just retail.

@zarobaWhat species are you housing atm?

hmm...currently I have:
Female ball Python
4 corn snakes (1 male, 1 female, and 2 of their babies)
Western Hognose
Yellow Rat Snake
Leucistic Bug-Eyed Black rat snake
Chocolate Florida Kingsnake
Sonoran Gopher Snake
8ft Female Red Tail Boa
12ft Albino Male Burmese Python (the guy in my avatar)
The snake in my signature is a Jungle Corn that I used to own, but lost him (and a few other reptiles) when the power went out a few winters ago due to a bad storm.

Besides snakes, I also have:
Male Leopard Gecko
Pacman Frog
Rose Hair Tarantula
Male Green Iguana
2 Bearded Dragons (male and female)
Male Argentine Black and White Tegu
Giant Rainbow Plated Lizard
Greek Tortoise
Red foot Tortoise
2 Sulcatta Tortoises
2 Russian Tortoises
2 Red Eared Sliders
Painted Turtle

4 cats, a dog, a Degu, and a dozen or more rats (I breed them to feed the snakes)

@zaroba Well, looks you're quite the Herpetologist. Nice, Way back when in college I had a 4ft female green Iguana named Conan(yeah didn't know she was a she till she laid eggs) Had a pair of Albino Corns a couple of leopard geckos and a pair of frightful tokays.

@zaroba Whoah! You don't know how impressed I am. Do you have a blog I could check out? It's terrible to hear about what happened that winter- I suppose you have a back-up plan now? I want to hear more about what your tortoise enclosures are like.
