    Looking for a market- LI-PO Batteries

    Looking for a market for Li-po Batteries that are commonly found in RC Cars & Trucks.

    They cost 4x the amount of LI-Ion new!
    I have over 200lbs of these already.
    Thanks!

    wouldn't shipping be expensive for 200lbs and plus, being lithium battery you've to declare hazard materials and that would bring the cost up too.?

    Clr its Aaron with Stillwater. Id do it over pm but I like kinda giving some info away. I learned from others.

    I scrap alot of these from a local rc dealer. Reason is many are badly charged and discharged. If you can test and sell them as good as new, like I do with my auto and deep cycle batteries than get more than the scrap price. Problem is many of these batteries are used by people who are paying $100 bucks because they are racing them and want the best when the battery starts to lose 20Percent they drop them. So I am collecting buyin them from rc stores and selling for you know the scrap price. I cant imagine dealing with one of these racers selling a used one. Its hard enough to sell a like new auto battery. lol. Thats a simple flooded car battery that is bad or good.

    Cool idea. This forum I knew was out there years ago but I was so busy building a business I didnt have time. As you all know now its harder and tighter.

    Car guys are working on 50 bucks a car.

    Cat buyers are working on 10 to 15 percent at highest level

    Etc Etc.

    Electronics lets us source for next to nothing. Do the work and make the $$.

    Btw Im into the heli and plane rc flying. I love it but I dont think Id take a chance having my 2k toy fall from the air because the battery looked new but was like 1/2 reserve in it from the start.

    Awesome idea. I just think to roll with it find a way to test them. I ship like new lead acid batteries all over the world as good units but they are easy to test. I dont know how to devise a easy reliable way to test. Looking at your posts from the past I think you can make more doing what you do. Buying and selling.

    Awesome idea and thanks for sharing it. If you find some sucsess please update post!! Aaron. btw I cant spell. Im a highschool drop out. So anyone can make it in this country. Good old USA!!!

    Sorry guys one day off and I am not allowed to be doing work. LOL. I didnt really read the thread. Resource sorry man. You can sell them as scrap. I thought clr had them.

    Yes they cost more but its like an agmgel battery. A common wheel chair battery. Cost $200 new and worth same as flooded cheap car batts when dead as scrap. Actually they (smelters) dont even like them. For certain reasons.

    If you can test them and sell them with a warranty then ebay or cl them!!!!!
