Satellite LED+ in Canada?


Hi there,

So I live up here in southwestern Ontario and I desperately want the Current USA Satellite LED+.

I've seen the US prices on these fixtures and I think the price is fair. However, once I start the see the prices for Canadian retailers on the product (~$200 - effectively doubled), it gets extremely off-putting.

Aside from my blabbering, I created this thread to ask if anyone knows of any Canadian suppliers that don't charge an arm and a leg for this light or am I just out-of-luck because of duties/importing fees and whatnot?

Hopefully someone knows a way to get this fixture at a fair price; any words are greatly appreciated!

Hey, thanks for the reply.

I've tried Amazon (US) and they do not ship the item to Canada. I also tried the Canadian Amazon and they don't even have the light listed.

As for e*bay, I checked it out as you suggested and it seems like the import charges/shipping charges are killer. Doesn't even make the fixture seem worth it, anymore.

I'll keep looking over the next couple days, but I may have to end up going with the Finnex Planted+

Im on the other side of the pond so I dont know how this translates in ters of shipping/duties etc, but I am looking at getting an ada aquasky knock off for my 60p from the *bay. Free shipping world wide.

It sucks when items arent available in ones country. First world problem though
