From @pyerxa
I finally got a grant for the remote controls and batteries for the cars the kids will make. However, the products I had on Amazon's wishlist were gone. I'm on amazon choosing the products. However, I don't want to order the wrong ones. Can you possibly make me a wish list (Amazon - preferably Prime) that has:
1. The remote (gonna order 10)
2. A good rechargeable 3.7V lithium-ion battery (gonna order 12)
3. A charger for the batteries (for 12 batteries)
4. A single battery clip holder for each battery (gonna order 12)
I honestly don't totally know what to look for and this would so help me out. Excited to have the kids back so we can build them. Mahalo for your help.

Aloha @pyerxa

Most of the Li-Ion batteries on Amazon do not ship to Hawaii individually. I found a bundle flashlight with 8 batteries at a good price (prime) that might ship. Batteries can also be purchased locally at Battery Bills or similar stores.

Here is the link for the wishlist with all the items requested: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/3uhneAa?ref_=wl_share


Let us know if you need anything else. We are looking forward to seeing the outcome of your project. Mahalo!

Aloha Edwin - On your Amazon list you have some flashlight/batteries/charger & then a separate charger. Do u think the charger that comes with the flashlights would suffice or should I spend the money on the better charger?

@pyerxa,


I was not sure if wanted to charge all 12 batteries at the same time. With the two chargers from the flashlight bundle kits and one extra charger you can charge all 12 at the same time. In my opinion, the charger in the bundle looks cheap. I would buy at least one of the better charger and use the ones included in the bundle as backup.


Let me know what you think.
