Apparently people are now reporting the battery if bought directly from East Penn has gone up about $100 to $220.
I've read that Remy has raised its price for the AUX18L significantly, essentially to that of a BMW dealer, but I have not read that East Penn has raised its price similarly. Have you checked with a local East Penn dealer?

I live in Canada and I got mine at my local dealer for about $150, I haven't checked any East Penn dealers, it's just that I read on the facebook group that people are reporting large price increases for this battery.

$139.95

That's only $18 higher than the $121.95 price at which I bought mine on April 28th. S&H was $18.25 [FedEx - Smart Post] for a total of $140.20.

Correct, it was well over $230 at one point, so I bought from Ebay for $177. Then the next day, I checked Remy again and it was down to $139.
A fanatic of all things electric. Ridables like electric ice chests and stand up scooters I adore. Drones like DJI, I root for. I'm a fan of both, but nothing beats my love for my 2016 i3 Rex with Deka World. Shhh, don't tell my wife.
