and link.
Did not see anything in the question that suggested that I have to provide the above, considering that I think that request could and should have been made in a more polite manner. I placed the order in October last year. I will have a look as to what I have as proof. You see I did not think I would have to provide evidence so I did not create a special folder and record it for this conversation. I will provide what I can find to prove it ok? Gees I had no idea I would get such a blunt response..holy moly chill dude.
They are on Amazon in sizes from 3 pacs @£4.99 to pacs of 1728 @ £1,459.99. There are customer reviews too, but I did not read them
Thanks Big Tea.
Here are some links ( hope they work as I am a newbie to doing the link thing) https://www.flickr.com/photos/27048445@ ... posted-ff/ and https://www.flickr.com/photos/27048445@ ... posted-ff/
So I genuinely got them. Does it make a legit company going forward? Not necessarily as I think there is some strange stuff going on and I personally suspect some big finance scam. I ordered some just to see of it does exist.... :D what a novel idea! :wink:

While their finances seem quite suspect it is not unusual to not have a canning factory. It is easy to get a third party to do it for you - happens more than you would think.

I worked at a firm that provided control software for a firm that made Yorkshire Puddings for every brand name and supermarket own brand. Only the ingredients as a percentage changed.

So only available at Amazon?

If you pay for a F1 team sponsor, why not promote the stuff at race weekends, at parties, around other race events?
I doubt enough of it exists for them to do that and not dry up global supply.

Yes I ordered a case online. It was late in delivery so they sent another free as an apology for the delay. I am in the UK. Tasted fine I quite enjoyed it but I am no connoisseur of energy drinks :) .

This is what I suspect is happening. Then some fun and games with financing and nimble accounting :D

Best news. guy was a complete tool.

Not sure i really like the 'Lightning Volt' name though.
Volt Energy would be better imho.

Sounds funny as a sponsor though:

Lightning Volt Haas F1 team.

Let's see their logo though, and whether they keep the JPS style livery.

Well whaddaya know,
there's already an (south african) brand called VOLT ENERGY,
and it actually also has a golden-black can with energy drink :lol:

and then, there's also Lightning Bolt, so with a B, not a V.

and guess who's branding that mess? :mrgreen:

It's getting pretty Hilarious, to be honest.

First off some unknown, virtually non-existant Energy Drink called 'Rich Energy',
with a stolen logo from a bike manufacturer at the same city,
now all up for grabs with the CEO ditched,
now owned by some business that in companies at the verge of collapse and standard renames the brand,
which happened already,
but it got renamed into a name that obviously steals the idea of Volt Energy drink,
and Lightning Bolt Energy drink.
there is 0% chance they hadn't discovered this, a simple google search gives all you need to know.

so this saga of going to court is just getting started it seems :lol:

The Bentley raced in the British GT series by Rick Parfitt Jr used to have Rich Energy as a sponsor on the car, they have Whyte Bikes now :D
