Hi There  ;)

I brought this boat from sussex model centre - http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=5453

and I received it very quickly but they have forgot the battery and charger! phoned them up , and are just sending me excuses , so does anyone know where I can find a 4.5A 6V lead acid sealed battery and wall charger in the uk - as stated in the links description.
Oh and if this helps the connecter inside the boat is a tamiya connection
A Few model shops did not understand , so hopefully some of you can help me  O0

Thanks :) John

As it clearly says that battery & charger are included I would ask for a full refund, if I got no joy I'd get on to trading standards.

Alternatively I'd pay them a friendly visit, it's amazing what retailers will do to get rid of a loud customer with a justifiable complaint  ;)

If you paid by card you may have some recourse as goods not supplied as specified.
Also looking at other shops which sell that model, the battery and charger as you say are included which to me says that they should be in the box pre packed , so how can they forget to send them unless they have deliberately taken them out of the box for some reason.?

I would keep pestering them with emails, if no response advise them that you will be advising trading standards.

I have to say that I have used SMC for years, and would consider them to be one of the most helpful model shops around. I would be very surprised if they were are not bending over backwards to rectify the shortfall once notified of it.

Hi Johnn

Gell Cells are commonly available try another shop to get you up and running, but keep after them for the items you haven't received.

They'll be handy for spares or for standbys 

Look at Howes site I phone up,order, in the post next day. Even small items.
