I've never hear of them but when shopping you should remember the saying "buyer beware"

You are making a good first step by asking on a forum though. I did this on candlepower forums when researching a company that looked dodgy but was the only place I could find a 14.4v smart charger. Popular opinion deemed them to be okay so I took the risk.

Sometimes it's better to pay a little extra though & get from a dealer you know. I recently took the cheap option with an online retailer ( They failed to deliver the product, lied about stock levels, & are almost impossible to contact. After googling I found quite a few forum threads where many people had had the same problems. I wish I had taken the time to research them a little. I assumed they were a safe bet because they have been around for a while & take out full page adverts in many UK photography magazines.

thanks. i looked up some other reviews of them and i am glad i did. there are a lot of postings out there claiming that these guys are crooks, scammers, and bait-and-switchers. no thanks. i'll pay more....guess it's true - if the price sounds too good, is probably is and there's a catch....
