In the past I would have said Thunder Power, but their new GenII batteries are heavy and have been having too many quality control problems. I vote for Apogee or Tanic/Irate.

I have Kokam, Thunderpower and Etec batteries, and the Etec are by far the best in my experience.

I have E-Tec, Kokam, and Thunder Power batteries. The TP's hold up to what ever I have thrown at them very well and I have never had a problem with them.

Polyquest.

Their charging system is well thought out from a safety point of view.

Sure they are; they are listed as part of the "other" selection.
