    One thing to watch out with PayPal is their "Pre Approved" setting. With a pre approved purchase a vendor can charge you again in the future without requesting the money from you. When you make a purchase,some vendors sneakily change the payment from One off, to a pre approved payment.

    It happened to me recently with some PC software I purchased three years ago. After the first year, I cancelled the subscription but they took a debit from my account. I immediately contacted Paypal and they refunded me. This year they took money for a subscription.

    Paypal explained that their policy is that you don't have to be informed in advance with pre approved payments if someone is requesting a debit from your account. So I went through and cancelled a whole bunch of them going as far back as 2-12

    It seems ebay is rife with sellers selling fake batteries, so just letting people know to be careful and do research before hitting the buy button.

    I have seen a number of listings recently where the seller is selling a battery know as genuine, but looking at the feedback on some it say the are sold in genuine Makita packaging.

    If the batteries are cheap then it is for a reason.
