    Default LeadingLithium.co.za legit?

    Good Day everyone

    I'm just trying to figure out if LeadingLithuim are a legit company or a scam?

    Anyone ever dealt with them before?

    Thanks in Advance

    Most of the Lithium products have been stolen from

    https://lithiumbatteriessa.co.za/

    So either this is the same companies retail division or it is a scam.

    Well most of the companies I found sell the same BMS and Built batteries. I'm trying to source some 3.2V LifePO4 Cells and their DIY kits prices are well looks to cheap against other places.

    That's why I'm trying to find anyone that ever bought something from them.

    So many scams these days, you cant be to sure of a online store only that you don't know.

    I am referring to the fact that even the images of the products is the same between the two websites.

    Only pay by EFT?
    NO CC or any other form of payment.
    I would not.

    Maybe they are selling Lithiumbattery SA's stock being a dealer? Best to find that out is to contact Lithium battery SA.

    However, I cannot find the T&C's, Privacy policy, courier info nor contact details.
    And who is, has no details bar Afrihost, and the site was registered 2021/09/01.
    I would not touch it with a barge pole.

    Political Correctness
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional illogical minority, rabidly promoted by a unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd ... by the clean end!

    Saw this in a pub - no idea why the wife does not see it so:
    I'm not opinionated ... I'm just always right!

    Another way of checking is to add something to your cart and then follow through the process until you get to the payment stage to see what the payment method is.
    Maybe not the most reliable way of telling but if a website wants me to do an EFT instead of paying via a Paygate then Id rather not. Paygates come with some security although not 100% safe but with EFT your are at mercy of the seller.

    Below is their payment method.
