Does this fit any other brands?
That's a small charge.
Spot on, my original 2 2yr old now, been a good cordless, samsung cells in orig batteries

Yeh I thought it would cost much more than that
Even only for cells for replace in other brand
Basingstoke has 0 stock even though listed as 3
Any bets on cancellations, as per....Update, Well, I stand surprised, order completed.

Cheers op. One left in Bristol lwg if anyone cares.

I already have 2 and a 3rd is definitely a good idea. I have the impact driver and it munches through them.
Grabbed the last 2 in Lancaster - should be great as a source of 18650's for projects and battery rebuilds. Cheep as chips !
cheers OP.
bought one to collect tomorrow.
Just bought 2, quite a few left in Kent. Can now rebuild my 2 Makita batteries that have failed. Thanks OP
Wished there were adaptors for Bosch etc

Call before you go to pick them up. They couldn't find them at my branch, so I had my order cancelled.
email just received stating that the warehouse is OOS and will not be delivered today - luckily I drove to Wickes yesterday and picked up the 2 they had left!!!
As per Liquid-Len idea, for this sort of money worth a punt just for cells to repair other brands battery packs.
Just ordered 1...clicked for collection, we shall see... will it be cancelled??
Well my order was ok, collected now, noticed the date of manufacture was 2015 - so been in stock somewhere a while!
Just had a peek inside 18650 Samsung batteries X 5 (looked online looks like the cells are £3 each)

Well, I'd personally go there and collect it ASAP in person then?, lol.

BEFORE that infamous online purchase gets magically 'cancelled', and the email they then send you is to notify you as such? (as opposed to telling you that everything is still sweet, or whatever?, lol).

You have been warned ... :-D

I ordered 2, separately. Got the confirmation of the first. Then a phone call, here we go I thought, but it was to say that 1 was reserved, only 1 in stock. 2nd one refunded.

Heat for the deal BTW. I ordered one (showed 3 in stock but I suspected stock may be wrong so chanced just one), got the phone call ready to collect, fetched it today, bargain!

Picked them up today no problem - as advertised. Also the girl at the checkout was kinda cute and nice so that was a bonus Shame they didn't have more, but gotta take what you can get.
Collected half a dozen from the local branches.... one was refunded as they "cannot find it" the rest are knackered
2 have a dead cell, the others are at about half capacity (600mah)
All going back tomorrow...
Just picked mine up and on opening the box it looks to have been well used. Tried it in my drill and charger and it seems to be dead. Can't understand why they would sell me a used dead battery? Obviously its going back but its a wasted journey!

I must admit the 2 I got do look like they've been out of their boxes before - not scruffy but just slight marks that make me think they are not really 'new'. I have no way to test them easily (no charger and no wicks tools), so I won't know until I strip the cells out, and that might be a while so wicks will probably get away with it if mine are dead or dying. Honestly though, at 2 packs for a poorly octopus I wouldn't bother taking them back anyway, though I know I should. Still, it shows what wicks can and will get up to if you trust them ! I will surely check and double check anything I buy from them in the future, and I'll be very wary of any clearance deals.
I got mine for the cells... but at 600mah at best, I'll keep my 70p.
You can get 3000mah cells for 3 quid new, so best to spend more and get decent ones.
All mine were refunded today.
how did you test the capacity of a cell?
