    Think I will buy a pack, been looking for some bigger capacity batteries as I have a strimmer which uses up the smaller batteries quite quickly.

    Yesterday was looking and they were around £119 for 2 batteries:eek:

    Purchased a pack and paid via paypal.

    It came up with a sand clock symbol.

    Have just got a message from eBay saying that we have had to remove listing from site.

    No, they're copies. Know someone who's bought a couple, albeit different to those you listed, he said they're compatible and worked fine, but now they're a couple years old the charge isn't held as long as his authentic makita batteries.

    If you look closely at the label on the side of the battery in the link, it actually says 'Mukita'.

    The original listings been removed now. Did look genuine but at £19.99 for 2*6ah batteries including p&p far too cheap.

    I was charged for the the batteries through e-bay. As I didn't contact them within 30 days, spoken to paypal who have opened a case and will wait 10 days for a response from the seller. So likely to get my money back.

    The Chinese merchant name should have given the game away when the receipt came through.

    Looks Like paypal have decided in my favour so will get all money back in next 5 days, very quick.
