Questions?? LIPO batteries in Melbourne

I'm hoping someone can recommend some good sources in Melbourne for LIPO batteries. SpeedyRC is sold out of the one I was after, Metro Hobbies has no shorty packs in stock. Who else is a good source for 7.4/7.6 shorty lipo packs? Would prefer to buy local, but online Melbourne/Sydney shops that will send lipo batteries would be fine too.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Probably Hearns

Rab is a nice page if you want to look at everything being out of stock.

Hearns 100%, get Brett on the phone there.

Give the Arrowmax packs a go, you won't be disappointed.

Not sure they can all order what you want, but I do know, stick with Gens Ace, you cant go wrong. They are top of the range and unlike most batteries, arnt overated with their c ratings, they actually give what they say they do.

Gens Ace is generally a budget brand, but they do have a line of racing grade packs (eg Redline). They're rated at ~130C which is in line with all the other overrated race packs.

The new website is 'https://rabhobbies.online" and yes a lot of the stock is showing "out of stock" as I'm updating all stock listing and quantities currently.
If there is any question, just call the number on the front page of the site. I'll be happy to accommodate.

Cheers,
Ren.
