MY batt was well packed. I bought one of the 134 A/h C&D's, i thought it was well packed anyway.
It may be but I ship all mine that way protects me and the buyer I would rather spend a few extra dollars up front to protect me and the buyer than cost myself a lot more in the end due to a broken item, plus it insures that your claim will go through. I have been through a few packaging classes provided by ups these are their standards for packaging....I have seen a few post that their batts were cracked but still worked and they were ok with that unfortunately others may not be and at that point its your job to replace it all shipping charges would have to be covered by you..

thier shipping standerds huh...lmao...go give ups a battery and tell them to pack it to thier standerds and see what happens to it
And as far as you standing behind your product, when i messaged you in a pm your reply was "idk what you did to it", and then "i don't give a ****". Never once mentioned sending me a replacement untill after you more or less told me to go F myself.
Except for now when you're trying to sugar coat it, and the packaging was beyond terrible (mine, atleast) and i REALLY wish i'd have thought to take pictures when it got here. It made it to me in good shape, just for your future sales. The only foam was on the sides, which was two peices that were about 75% as tall as the battery, that had been broken in half and shoved down into the sides of the box.
And as for me trying to weasle you out of a battery so i'll have two... I posted a pic of the battery a 3.19v. There's no way that batt is recoverable.
You tell me i'm being fishy, look back at the replies you just made and count the excuses you had to make because of the bad way you're handling your sales. And that's only the few who read my thread.
And also if you think it's my fault the battery is JUNK, why did you completely ignore my PM's until i made this thread?
I say get some decent pictures before anyone does anything...
as for packaging, anything over 50lbs should have a MINIMUM of 2" packaging all around it. Also, I have never seen a battery that low before, usually anything under 10.6 (IIRC) is not going to "come back to life", or at least that is how we did it at Interstate Battery when I worked there.
I got two c&d's from phat and they were packaged great. even had protectors over the termals, I tested them before they were out of the box and resting votage was well over 12 (dont rember the exact number). batts sat for a month or so before I freshen the charge, and still were good, charged them sat for few weeks before installed (did this on purpose so If they were bad i didnt waste my time installing them), just installed them last week and work great.
HEARD NOT SEEN LIKE A NINJA
Sounds like the OP is an inconsiderate ******* and is quick to jump to conclusions. I met this guy in person and bought a couple batts, ive had absolutely no problem with them whatsoever, seemed like a cool guy and we bullshitted around for a bit. I even completely drained the batts in the rear down to 10v not knowing my main fuse had blown, charged it back up and its good as new. If UPS is only ****ing up 5% of his batteries, i say hes packing them **** good.
Btw, are you insuring them when you ship them?
Really though, if he did **** this batt up on purpose and you sent him another, he would still only have 1 batt so how would that help him.
Personally i wouldnt send him a new battery, id let him take it up with UPS insurance. If you ship 100 batts the same and only 5 mess up, its not your fault. I know how ups treats ****, i worked there when i was like 16.
