In February I ordered 5 SMART lithium batteries
and a Mastervolt smart charger
from SMART Batteries
International. Our boat
was in Greece
I did a money
transfer for over $6000 USD as they did not have Paypal or card payment available.
A sailing friend in Florida
sent me a forum in late February advising considerable complaints against this company in the USA.
I cancelled the order in early March and requested my money
It is now November and I still have not received my money despite numerous phone
calls and emails (mostly ignored).
I have also engaged the Florida
Better business bureau to approach the company. No luck!
I have subsequently replaced our batteries with Lifeline AGM
batteries from the USA. This time no problems with delivery
or payment (credit card).The batteries will get us back to Australia
as we got 7 years from our last set of Life line AGM
batteries and these are performing very well.
