Why no batteries for sale?

  • vaance Friday, March 4, 2016 9:54 PM Reply

    Why are there no 18650 batteries for sale? It is teh same on the US DX website.

    I obviously missed some announcement about this.

    Can someone point me in the right direction to explain why?

    Thank you.

    Hmmm, maybe DX are finally fed up having to reship them all the time due to the security problems, or maybe its just a bug!

    @Happyvicky should be able to clear this up?

    There are no batteries at all. Not even button cells. 

    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    They don't seem to have got around to announcing it in English yet but this post in the

    Español/Português forum may explain it:


    (Google translate)


    Dear customers.

    Because aviation security regulations , global air service has banned the transport of packages containing certain amount of energy in products such as batteries and power banks . For this, we have temporarily stopped selling these products. Notify you if in the future resold normally.

    To avoid further delays , all orders containing these products and not yet released will be canceled. An email will be send to confirm the form. of reimbursement . DX apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this situation.

    Thank you for your support and understanding.
    DX Team.

    Really! I hadn't seen it. It's such a significant topic to announce, I would have expected it to be worthy of a sticky for a couple of months at least.
