It's very hard(if not impossible) for shops to survive on hardware alone for a few reasons. Anyone can buy direct from China, usually at around 50% less than shops can sell it. Also, we have so much product being released. It's so hard for shops to keep up, especially for shops that can only buy their stock in lower quantities.Juice on the other hand, they have more control over.
My local shop(which I don't frequent anymore!!), they have at least a 100% markup on everything they sell. Their bread and butter is newer vapers who buy starter kits and cheap juice.

Yeah, there are a ton of batteries out there. Some just re-wraps of the bigger brands and some re-wraps with ridiculously over rated specs. Imo , stick with the big names(Sony, LG, Samsung, Efest) from a trusted supplier. The big suppliers usually test the batteries they sell. Vape shops can unknowingly sell fakes. Sony's have been a victim of this. Battery Mooch is usually in the comments of the 'big' reviewers videos and will answer any questions you have. Fakes are not so much a concern(amp wise) for lower wattage vapers. Anything rated over 3000mah and/or 25A,  I would be weary of.
*I am by no means an expert in batteries. I'm just passing on info I have seen/read from reviewers/vapers that I trust.

They just opened a new vape shop in my town this week... never heard of any of the brands of batteries they carried. Ended up getting one AWT IMR 18650 3000mah battery.

No clue if it is good or not.. does have a scratch and check code etc

My preference has been the efest and sony VTC batteries.

 Thanks Ian, think the local  vape shop has the purple Efest so may take them up on one to test them out.
Can vouch for the brown 18650 LGs I have a few.

For very trusted stats on tons of brands, check out a guy called 'Battery Mooch'. He has a chart that he constantly updates with new results. He is highly respected in the vaping industry, especially amongst the sub-ohm crowd. He doesn't work in the vaping industry, so has no affiliations to any brands. I trust his findings completely and always refer to his chart for battery stats.
