Kudos to you, P99guy! You took a risk with an unknown new supplier and it worked out ok. Your experience and reporting is a benefit to the Segway community.

Personally, I have no issue (in general) with Chinese-made batteries, since a big percentage of all lithium-ion batteries come from China. P99Guy is correct that finding the correct supplier is the key, and the challenge.

Having some experience with the Chinese marketplace, I know that it is much less regulated than what one might expect. I have seen everything from excellent quality to fake parts with my companyís name on them, and insides that look like they were soldered by unskilled children. China does not have the western legal system that provides negative feedback to bad actors. As a corporate buyer, you must put your own quality controls in place, and continuously verify that they are being implemented at the factory. For an individual buyer, this isnít possible. Iím glad it worked out for P99Guy! Thanks for taking the leap of faith!
