Default Source for 1100 mAh A123 cells?

Hi guys,

Does anyone have a source for authentic A123 cells, the smaller 1100 mAh version?

I used to get them out of Black and Decker packs but I think maybe the price is better elsewhere and less hassle.

He said "genuine A123 systems cells", I'd be shocked if HK is selling those.

I have the 1100mah A123 cells from HobbyKing and they are defiantly genuine.

I ordered a 16 pack of 2300's from these guys which at the time was free shipping. They even soldered tabs to my liking and shipped with a few days. If theyre not genuine A123's then they've done a pretty good job imitating both looks and performance.

They should have 1100's as well.

Your link won't work because of the "period" behind "com".

I agree, this is a very good source, very fast shipping, reliable and cheap.

I must have now +50 packs from him, each one was perfect quality ; and he makes custom packs exactly like you want them, with the connectors etc of your choice.

$17.95 to ship 1 battery? Thats a ripoff. It's not just the cell being used but the total overall quality of the pack andin my opHangtimes makesthe bestquality pack hands down.

The road to A123s will, sadly, lead to China - the original technology was developed by MIT: [link=http://www.technologyreview.com/view/428786/a123-systems-finds-a-financial-lifeline-in-china/]Technology goes to China[/link]
