I have been trying to purchase the 18650 batteries required for R2D2 since Nov 2020. I have finally been told that that the batteries are only Flat Top and that they need extenders to make them Button Top. The only problem is that they are not available in Australia. Does anybody know of a company that I can purchase the correct batteries. Ebay Aust does not have them.

I know a lot of Australian builders, including myself , have bought the Batteries from Jaycar. Plenty in stock and not expensive. No issues from anyone. Catalog no. SB2308. Button top, unprotected 2600mAh. They ship within Oz.

Thanks for the info. I now have 6 batteries that are required. Being in the later stages of life I went to a well known battery supplier(no name mentioned)who after 4 months couldn't help. Lesson learnt.

Good luck with the first start up.

For us Australians, it was a very long and convoluted build. Very enjoyable though. Mine's now fully retired to the top shelf display. :-)
