Default 123 cells?

I've been hearing a lot about these powerful cells and have yet to see them on the market. They seem to be getting a lot of attention from the giant scale eley fliers. Anyone know where to get more information and/or places that are selling these cells as packs?

They are available from a few places also on EBay -
th problem at this exact moment is that the usual hobby distribution channels have no desire or need to address them as they momentum is in LiPos and LiIons
this too shall change
A123 technology addresses them .
go to 123 support here on electric power stuff also the cells are used in DeWalt Power Tools 36 v packs 10 cells = 36 volts
the cells are heavier than LiPos - but that is the only downside .
they fast charge , put out teriffic power-and are safe to charge and use in the model and if you screw them up -in many cases they will pop back to life on a good charger

My personal bet is that they will soon be THE hot ticket.
I don't sell em or have any connection with anyone who sells them or associated products

Several places sell the A123 cells, packs, and chargers.

Be sure to check out the A123 powered racing motorcycle [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dRpAZci9m0]here[/link]. It can do a quarter mile in under 9 sec with A123 cells!
