At the low, low cost of >$1000/kw-hr!
Oh wait, you could buy Dow Kokams with 4 times the cycle life for that cost!
Oh wait, i could buy panasonics at retail price for less ( $800-$900/kw-hr ) and have something even smaller!
You know that i just bought 1.5kw-hr of RC Lipo for $620 shipped? That was a particularly expensive type as well, i could have got some slightly heavier stuff and got 1.5kw-hr for less than $500.
Never been interested in the allcell. The price is exorbitant and the specs don't make up for it. At least the Dow Kokam cells give you 4x the cycle life, similar wHr/KG and 1-2C better discharge in the 'high energy' format..
There's a reason that, despite Lester trying to whore that pack out on ES, you are the only person i know of running it after a year of listening to him self promote.
Also the Dow Kokams are not selling so hot either.
The truth is that people don't want to pay $1000/kw-hr. That's for suckers. Not when the major auto corps are paying $300-$500/kw-hr for their cells.
It's just not a solution when you're looking to put together a 3kWh pack.
