    Looks like I have to start replacing my RED BRICKS.
    They are not getting 2 hours plus anymore.
    I'm in Canada, so I don't have a lot of options due to shipping, duty/tax, and of course our dollar sucks.
    One Canadian online store has Shape Full Plays for a decent price.
    Does anyone use those?
    I can't find anything in my price with the RED battery level read added :(
    Any tips would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Hey Eric,

    I can 100% recommend the Shape v-lock batteries. I have a kit of 6x 135Wh that I use with my Monstro and I've never had a single issue. They are small, light and really well built. Also, Shape is a local company, so there's that!

    Give them a call and see if you can test one out before you buy.

    Hey thanks! How much do you get out of the 135Wh with your RED?

    I am also stoked that these have the USB power option.
    I can charge stuff with this as well.
    Ordered a 98Wh for testing then going full tilt with a 270Wh if things work out :)
