    Default Retail Locations for batteries

    Just curious if anyone's found 18650 or RCR123A batteries for sale in a retail location here in Canada.

    There should be some place that carries them

    I know right? There should be... but I swear there isn't. If you find out, let a fellow Albertan know...

    You can buy a 6-pack of 18650s in most laptop batteries. They are flat-top and soldered in with conductive ribbon. I had no problem getting them out with a flat screwdriver and pliers. You just have to break a laptop battery to get them. I am not 100% sure which ar protected 18650s, but the ones I have seem to be constucted with a PCB.

    BatteriesExpert.com sells 26650/18650/14500/123A batteries.

    Check the link to their store finder I posted, they have a few locations in Ontario.

    Not exactly what you're looking (U.S. online) for but dirt cheap protected 18650/ 2200 mah for $4.50 + shipping. I just got together with some friends and ordered a bunch. Didn't have any problem with Customs.
