    Anyone know of a Thai vendor that sells battery wraps. I need to redo most of my HE2's. Don't really want to spend more on shipping than for teh wraps themselves. lol

    Lg must be using a cheaper wrap initially I think.

    Thanks Judas and V. FT will be the best bet with very cheap shipping.

    V I have a whole heap to do. Need to do 7 LG's, but I will rewrap all of them as the wrap seems brittle on them so 10 all up. I have a few VTC's that have got minor damage on them that is not a problem but might as well do the whole lot. So Alll up without checking the VTC's about 20-25 batteries. lol.

    I have got to stop getting batteries for a while. lol

    FT wraps have been used successfully over here for close to a year now. Would recommend the clear ones if they still have em. this way you dont need to relabel the battery if the simple printed id's on the battery itself are still legible (9 times out of 10 info on battery has been perfect from experience). If that is not enough of a concern, another positive thing is once you rewrap with the clear you will be able to see straight away if any juice or other foreign matter has seeped in between the wrap and the battery.

    I'm the opposite, i like to use colors, using clear I find it hard to see when there is a small rip in the wrap but it's a lot easier to see when you use a colored wrap.

    As I use the LG paired I am leaning towards 1 colour for each pair, if I can get them, and a separate colour for the VTC's. Easy identification. I only use high drain so colour coding makes sense to me to be honest.
