Looking for some cheap 18650 batteries.

Second hand ones out of old laptops will do as long as they have been tested working and are of similar capacity.

Only need 8 of them.

I have a stack of old Toshiba laptop batteries, they themselves are dead, but likely due to one or two bad cells. You are welcome to a few, just pay post

You cant, and faulty batteries are a whole different class compared to working ones so good luck with that.

Yep that was my take on this too.  Has rather changed the game on what you can get sent to NZ now too, let alone within NZ.

 

 

 

Side story, but several years back I needed to return a camera to England for servicing under warranty.  When I got to the post shop the lady asked if there was a batter in it and I said yes, it was inside the camera.

 

She said I had two options, either she drops it from 1m or higher (forget the specifics) or I take the battery out and repackage.  Didn't fance drop kicking my DSLR so had to unpack everything and remove the battery prior to sending.
