Vancouver Battery is selling Fenix Flashlights very steadily. Aside from our Vancouver customers we have been selling the Fenix Flashlights and accessories throughout Canada. We stock pretty much every Fenix flashlight that is current along with chargers, batteries, tips etc. The hottest things right now are the new TK75, the ARE-C1 battery charger, and the ARB-L2 batteries. We have played with this bad boy a little and so far are really impressed. We feel it is an improvement over the TK70 and a bonus is that it doesn’t use D size batteries.
We are looking forward to selling many more Fenix Flashlight products throughout Vancouver and the rest of Canada! Click Fenix Flashlights to see all Fenix Products!

Vancouver Battery just received its first shipment of Shorai Lithium motorcycle batteries. Shorai batteries are popular because they are 1/5 the weight of standard SLA batteries, have faster cranking and come with a 3 year warranty. They’ll be on our website soon. I am doing my best to learn about the various motorcycle batteries and will be looking to stock them for spring of 2014 . For now we will continue to special order them for our customers.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Vancouver Battery is proud to be doing the recycling for the Vancouver School Board so when you see the the brown battery bins in all the elementary and high schools please use them.
The school board is providing the bins and we are providing free labor to pick them up, package and ship them off to the appropriate depots. We feel its our duty to try to help the environment in any way that we can.
Please do you part to recycle and if you have kids get them active in bringing your old batteries to school. Its a small thing but as a parent it makes me feel better that batteries aren’t going into the landfills.

Vancouver Battery is now stocked and equipped for battery rebuilds. We have helped our customers in rebuilding and building custom packs using Nimh, Nicad and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA). In addition we have invested in battery analyzers to test most of our cells before building packs and then testing the battery packs before we send them back to our customers. We do this in most cases unless the volume and time doesn’t permit us to.
Give us a call if you need any battery packs built or rebuilt. We’ll do our best to help you out.

Just a quick note to everyone that Sanyo Eneloop XX – 2500mA – HR-3UWX in bulk has moved so well that we are out of stock until further notice. We still have the retail 4 pack for $24.99 + tax. Rumor has it that the transition of Sanyo being sold through the Panasonic chain is taking a bit more time than expected. Our suppliers are telling us that no one is able to get the Eneloop XX in bulk at the moment. I will keep you all posted.

Vancouver Battery Corp now has the new Sanyo Eneloop XX – 2500mA low discharge battery in stock. We have both the retail 4 pack in stock for $24.99 + tax and have bulk available at 8 pieces for $35.99 + tax. These have proved a little hard to get but have had good reviews on the internet. Sanyo has one of the best names in Nimh rechargeable batteries and this battery should prove to be one of the best. I will be testing it shortly against the MAHA Imedion and the results should prove to be interesting.

I have had a few questions recently asking me what I thought regarding the comparison between the MAHA Mh-C9000 Wizard vs the La Crosse BC-900. Admittedly, I haven’t had a BC-900 in my hands for quite some time. The only experience I had with it, to be honest I wasn’t really all that impressed. It has alot of features but I had problems getting the right settings. Maybe I just got a bad one and will buy another to test in the future.
Regardless if I get a new one to test, I will say that I do like the MAHA Mh-C9000 alot more. Its display is bright but more importantly the buttons are easy to press and features are easy to access. If you are on the road you may find this charger is a little too big but if you have a ton of batteries or just want a good charger to tell you what capacity your batteries are at, the MAHA Mh-C9000 is definitely worth a look. It is a little more expensive at around $69.99 + tax though.
