Smoke Shop STX? Looking for a battery

Looking for a battery - 18650 Lithium Battery Rechargeable. OMX doest carry and Radio Shack is out and no idea on when they'd get it in. I can't order it on amazon, wont ship here.

It's actually for an underwater LED light but I see that model is used for rechargeable E-cigs so I wonder, is there a place on island that has a selection of E-cigs and batteries?

Shot in the dark I'm sure but I gotta figure out a way to get that battery. Royal Caribbean in STT doesn't carry it either... plus not sure if they can put that on the seaplane anyway.

I wonder... if I have my sister in the states ship it USPS will it get confiscated since it's a LI battery? I've ordered camera stuff with Li's but this is proving to be difficult and I wanna play with this new light lol.

You are a day late. I just left the island yesterday and have half a dozen sitting in my dive equipment cabinet (for my lights). I will be back in 7 weeks and will bring you some then, if you still need them. thinking

Home Depot has a good flashlight selection. Maybe they have something like that.

You can find some eBay vendors who will ship those batteries here - as it's a common battery for LED flashlights, etc. No, they're not supposed to via mail - but they do.

Many laptops use those cells in their battery packs too, look for instructions online on how to harvest them and test them, often a pack with one bad cell won't work for the laptop any more, but you can still get the 5 good cells from it.

No dive shops have or can lend you one for your dive?
Those spawning pictures would be awesome.

Well I'll have my other camera for the pics. The light would help but I have back ups. Fingers crossed we can give some coral popping off! I've wanted to find coral spawning forever. should be great with the full moon! Maybe I'll finally see a hammerhead!
