I just checked the website to buy some batteries and have noticed a huge increase in the pricing. Can someone please let me know if this is a temporary thing? Are the days of the $45.00 6 cell pack with good number gone?

Not only that the price went up but the numbers on the cell went down

I don't plan on buying new packs until the price goes down, that was the main reason I chose promatch, amazing products at very low prices. Still using my 1.229 EP42s I got for 50$ prebuilt for now.

Hey,

I used to get a discount from Fusion. 6 cell packs were around 35.00 shipped. Since ProMatch bought them all they have done is raise the prices. I thought that EP cells were suppose to be less expensive and more reliable. Now price isn't an issue.

Guys have you even called and asked Erika? From what i can see there might...and I stress MIGHT be a typo since a lower # pack is more than a higher # pack. You will get more answers if you contact them directly instead of posting and complaining here to each other. You also must keep in mind that prices do not always stay the same and if the EP cells cost them more they in turn have to raise prices to stay in business.

Default Pricing

Unfortunately due to rising costs in raw materials (nickel) our battery prices have gone up considerably. As you all know we pride ourselves on providing quality products at low prices. This is just something we could not avoid. All battery matchers are experiencing this and you will soon see they will be forced to do the same. As you know we are constantly cycling cells and have already received cells that reflect this price increase forcing us to be one of the first companies to have to raise our prices. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Jay- The reason the 1.23+ Voltage packs are cheaper is because they are 400-429 seconds of runtime VS. our standard of 430+ runtime. It's a special we run on occasion when we have high voltage cells that are slightly lower in runtime. GREAT STOCK PACKS!!!!

Erica,
Would you recommend EP batteries more than the Fusion batteries for 19turn and stock?
YGPM!
Thanks in advance

The EP cells are the East Power. Fusion was only matching these when Promatch bought them. All the Fusion packs probably use the EP cells. They are great for stock and 19t.

Thanks Chris,

I'll be sure to get with you this Saturday so I can try them. I'm getting ready for RROC or TCS so I was debating on getting IB's or EP's!
What connectors are you using on the batteries. Are you still using the Euro connectors (Integy type)?
