Geez, now guysonic is spamming us with his ripoff bullsh*t over here?
Why can this guy stay over in the retail space where he belongs? ::)
I question whether he even belongs over there.

What next guy, gonna start selling Extenze over here for $30 a pill?  ::)

A vendor answering a specific question by referencing the vendor's product isn't spamming.  It's on-topic.  If someone asks where they can by Extenze, and a vendor chimed in to say "here", again -- it's not spam.

On the other hand, if vendors promote their products in threads unrelated to their wares -- for example an Extenze vendor plying their wares in a thread focused on V3 power sources -- then, yes, it's spam.  But that's not what's happening here.  Lighten up, Francis.

Myco, Guy does make pretty decent battery sleds.  Serious attention to detail even though the glue work and the plastic cutouts look a bit sloppy sometimes.  It is pretty much bomb-proof.  I am always amazed at his custom plug work...hand crafted 'amber' and super lo-pro.  My only complaint is that he probably would better off making a universal connector at the sled and thus give options for powering/cable>plug combos, thus lowering the production cost and making a much more flexible powering system.  That said, the cost for some of those sleds is pretty jaw-dropping and occasionally I get the same feeling as you regarding his shameless-self-promotions.

They have a smaller version for $119 as well.  I actually recently bought a Tekkeon but may be sending it back. 

Where can one find a "WallyWorld"  DVD Battery??

These are both discontinued. What gives? Any other options.....around $50 with charger?

Thanks guys, for the price with charger, I picked one of these up. I needed it kind of quick so this will do for now and get me by. Will be keeping an eye out for larger capacity though.  ;D

Thanks Ed!

I ordered a pair of those.  About $30 total.  The dude wants $12 for priority mail, so I went with media mail. I was a bit concerned about whether I'd get them but they arrived today.  Got one on the charger now.  Tough to say how old they are but I'll try and report after a quick test.

I have two of the Impact batts I use to power my V3 and if fully charged recent to when it will be used, it's great. However, I've noticed if one of them sites for a month or so it will lose it's charge completely. Is this normal?

You are welcome!
Got my three in 5 days from Cali to Philly via media mail. Ran two of them for a show and got over
5 hours for the V3 and used only one light for the R-44 for the same time.

It sounds like your battery is getting old/worn.   Two things happen with age:  the batteries won't take as much of a charge, and the self-discharge rate increases (battery goes dead more quickly).
