“Cheap, quick delivery, good product, hard to find battery”

Written on: 25/09/2016 by Lambse289 (1 review written)

I had to look far and wide to find a "623" 6v 2.3ah lead acid rechargeable battery to replace a dead one in an RAC multi-torch, that was the right size (76.5 x 43 x 37mm). This place had the item and at a good price of £7 inc p&p. Battery arrived fast and in good condition pre-charged so I could test it was working straight away. The terminals were not in the exact same location as the original but this didn't matter as the supply wires just soldered onto the tabs with no issue. Well done… Read Full Review

“Happy with service”

Written on: 27/07/2014 by EdFromCardiff (1 review written)

I have used this site a number of times to buy rechargeable batteries (AA & AAA). They have always arrived in a reasonable period of time. I have been using the Vapex batteries for a number of years and am completely satisfied with them. Postage is very reasonable… Read Full Review

“excellent customer service”

Written on: 01/11/2013

In May I purchased a rechargeable battery for a toothbrush, however recently it lost it's charge after less than one minutes use, I phoned customer services on Wednesday afternoon about the problem and they offered without any quibbling to send me a replacement which arrived the following morning at 8.30AM. Without doubt the best company I have EVER dealt with and would recommend them… Read Full Review

“Keep it up guys!!!”

Written on: 24/07/2013

After quick searching on Internet I have found this company to buy some stuff to my airsoft gun. I have been impressed about variety of batteries and I didn't know what to choose so I called them and asked about few technical details and what they recommend. They were happy to help and I got answer for all my question. Soon my new batteries arrived by 1st class post and were well packed too. I could truly recommend these guys as they don't want to sell you their most expensive batteries but the… Read Full Review

“Awful response times unlikely truth in emails”

Written on: 07/06/2013 by willerton (1 review written)

I ordered a battery for my Airsoft gun after being told about these guys by a friend I go skirmishing with. I paid for 1st class delivery just after 1 in the afternoon, firstly it took them an entire day to even send out my battery and they only told me they had done so when I emailed them and asked where it was and if it had even been dispatched, they sent me an email to say they had dispatched it, the email said: "Your order has been dispatched today by First Class Royal Mail and should be… Read Full Review

“Responsive to phone calls, items not posted 2 days after”

Written on: 17/05/2013

Ordered from these guys with the knowledge that a fair few people who I know in airsoft, use them as well. As far as prices are concerned they can't be faulted however I placed my order and 2 days later I called up,m suprised that I had yet to receive the batteries and charger as the day before writing this review I ordered some BB's and they came the next day which is what spurred on my inquest in regards to dispatch. Phoning them up took no time at all and the person handling the call was… Read Full Review

“I simply complete a transaction through paypal on...”

Written on: 28/02/2011 by ChakLong (1 review written)

I simply complete a transaction through paypal on their website, purchasing a single tamiya plug adapter, for my airsoft batteries, and after awhile I received the email that it was being sent from the UK. I live in Hong Kong, which is quite far. The delivery lasted a week and arrived in prefect condition, in my apartment mailbox. The packaging was careful and used very little packaging effectively. Pulled it out of the packaging and plugged it with my battery and gun, worked great. Plugged in… Read Full Review

“I wish I had read these reviews before I ordered!!!! ”

Written on: 06/10/2010 by MrRee (15 reviews written)

I wish I had read these reviews before I ordered!!!!

While I was asking about a possible order they responded back within hours.

Now I have an issue (lack of goods) - they are totally silent!

Either the post has let them and I down - or, they have just scammed me!

Customer Service is absolutely disgusting.

I would suggest that yoy STAY AWAY from this shady company if you are looking to buy goods - try the better companies out there with good Customer Service.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2010

Items now arrived - 1st Class - after 10 days.
<br/>
<br/>Maybe the Royal Mail was to blame for non-delivery.
<br/>
<br/>But, the company themselves are to blame for lack of communication when something goes wrong ..... or I maybe expecting too much to ask for e-mails expressing concerns to be dealt with in the same way that e-mails asking about buying/ordering are (ie, speedily!)?
<br/>
<br/>I probably will not use again .... they could be so good if they simply communicated swiftly if a concerned customer contacts them (just a simple, 'acknowledge e-mail and looking into it' automated e-mail would work wonders!)
<br/>
<br/>I'm sure that if all goes well, items arrive when promised and goods are as ordered, the company is great to deal with - so, please, use them if you wish ... but, be prepared for no contact if something goes wrong.
<br/>

Written on: 30/07/2010

I have used these guys for all of my airsoft battery needs. They are quick, cheap and efficient. Unlike other reviewers I have not had to call or get in contact with them due to a faulty product so have no poor experience with the company due to this.
The lipo batteries are very good quality and reasonably priced which can't be said for another UK company offering the same products. The batteries on the Component Shop website sell at various airsoft retailers for up to 3 times the price you… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2010

Seen a couple of bad reciews so felt I should add my experiences. Had a question about which battery to buy so found a phone number in yellow pages gave them a call & got a very knowledgeable chap who answered the technical queries I had straight away. I placed the order the same day & the battery arrived the following morning. Very good price compared to the shops & 1st class postage at only £2.00 Absolutely nothing to fault. This was a couple of weeks ago & the battery I bought is… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2010

This website sells good products at good prices and their postage is cheap and fast.
However, the problem comes when you need to contact them. I bought some batteries from them and one of them turned out the be faulty. I tried to contact them several times on each of their three email addresses but never once got a reply. They do not publish a phone number on their site but I managed to find one using google. This also turned out to be a waste of time as the number just rings out and there is… Read Full Review

This was sorted out a week or so after posting this review.
<br/>They are slow to respond to emails but at least they did in the end.
