Does anyone know of any way that batteryhookup's 18650 nickel sheets with integrated fuses can be bought from within EU? Ordering those from US has ridiculous shipping costs and considerable shipping time. Also are there any alternative manufacturers of nickel sheets with fuses integrated that I am not aware of?

I bought my last load of cell holders from Keith at 18650 shrink but he's not answering his emails unfortunately (Keith where are you???)... In the mean time, Amazon here I come!
Looks like he's no longer here. His profile is still here, but no log ins for quite some time. Also, his web site, http://18650shrinkandcellholders.com/, no longer works.
He does have a FB page that could be looked into (I don't have FB): https://www.facebook.com/groups/PortableRecycledPower
Might even be able to contact him through his ebay link: https://www.ebay.com/str/18650shrinkandcellholders

Does Keith sell fused Nickel strip though? I know he has almost everything else and is very competitive but it's specifically the BH style fused nickel strip that me and enki are looking for?
I think he used to. Not sure if he still does or not. I didn't see any on a quick look on his ebay seller page, but he could of just been out of stock.
Those sheets seem to be in short supply as I've noticed a lot of places not having them in stock.

To follow up on this, I just tried to order some nickel strip and cell holders and the shipping quote was $271 for DHL!!!!
I know the cell holders are higher volume vs weight which can lead to large shipping fees. It is pretty easy to order the cell holders direct from china on alliexpress and if you are careful and/or do a test order you can get comparable quality ones. My only thought for the fused nickel would be to get together a bulk buy for Europe and maybe that would help diffuse shipping costs. I haven't found anything like the Battery Hookup nickel anywhere.

By the way I love your YouTube videos. When we get more :) I feel a kindrid heart with your efforts and mine although I am coming from an already off grid but wanting to electrify heating and such.

Hey thanks cak, you're a star. More videos on the way ;)
Speaking to them over email, they can also see a discrepancy between their shipping costs on their website and the real world. They're going to take a manual order from me with a much more realistic shipping fee.
I'll report back soon.

Good news! Batteryhookup checked the shipping manually and sent me an order to complete on their website. The corrected shipping rate was $78 which is about right. If you're in Europe and want to buy from batteryhookup.com, I highly recommend you send them an email to place an order instead of using their website.
