Damn it! Don't get paid again until the 19th when they'll inevitably be back up... shouldn't have paid the damn mortgage :lol: ...they must have tons of inventory laying around. Thanks for keeping us posted WFG!

Bought 10. Just arrived today. Was too excited, and managed to cut myself with the knife opening the box!
Packs marked 2007. Opened one up. All cells at 3.3V within a millivolt.

FYI for Canadians: Shipping of 10 was USD60, then customs added $50 more (5% GST and 7% duty since toolking had filled in China as country of origin -- I though A123 was US, but packs indeed say made in china)

Interesting. Keep us posted on how these packs treat you over time. Sitting @ near nominal for ~3 yrs... wonder what that'll do to a cell? In theory I suspect with these A123s it won't be much of an issue. I'm kinda hoping the price stays low for a couple weeks until I get my next paycheck. :mrgreen:

Somewhere I read that the cells are designed to be able to set for 15 years (charged to 50%) without damage. If true, that is amazing. Most of the cells (tool packs) I have are dated 2007 and cycle all within 2% of each other. Small rises in temperature can add some capacity. Maybe we should all add some heating to our packs (even in summer) ?

For toolking orders above $49, you can use coupon code "404" for free shipping. I think I clicked on electrical tape, and the page gave me an error instead, which offered free shipping for the inconvenience. It worked because I ordered 2 of these things (great deal too) that came out to $49.98

Nice.. thanks.. I'm about to order 8+ of those tomorrow after the paycheck clears ("snow" would work for that anyway I think). Was thinking about kfong's uber-cool boards, but these are quite a bit cheaper and I can use some the lights in my VW bus restoration project... swivel lights for reading etc. Why not.

I can confirm the "404" code for free shipping. If you get to the end of checkout and already specified shipping (ground), click on the shopping cart to go back and enter the code. Also, if you order $99 or more, standard ground shipping is free.

I don't know how much longer this deal will last. In the past, it is usually only 3 or 4 days and then goes back to $49.99 so hop on it if you want to get in on this price.

I decided to get 8 of kfong's interface boards. 1 complete one as a template, and 7 bare boards to practice my soldering :lol: I think I read somewhere that there was some sort of issue with using the floodlights...maybe something about them drawing less than 28v, or the interface has a limitation that needs to be overcome. However, I ordered the floodlights to test that theory out. I figure they will come in handy for fishing/camping and general emergency situations since I will have plenty of 28v batteries now :)

You are braver than me. I know for a fact that I would ruin those with my horrible soldering abilities.

Kevinator wrote:I think I read somewhere that there was some sort of issue with using the floodlights


Interesting. I was just planning on using the direct +/- spades in the flashlight housing and gutting the rest and letting the pack BMS cutoff at it's normal voltage etc. If there is some sort of circuitry in the flashlight I'll gut that also, but you're making me realize that I should go buy just one locally to make sure before I order a bunch. Maybe lyen will chime in with his experiences with his 36v flashlight build. Going with a 2s4p so if the 25A max on the 28v is true as per kfongs experiments that's 100A sustained... I won't go over 40-50A sustained during my commute, but I've seen bursts up to 100A-ish so that was my target peak. I already have visions of how I'm going to mount these all to my old hardtail frame. :lol:

Oh... forgot to mention that the 8 V28s I just ordered will also power my VW bus at night so I can watch movies, listen to music, stay warm with electric heat etc. Going to go 4s2p in the bus.. 'bout 106v.. and just run that DC straight into a power strip and trust all the various "wallwarts" to step-down as they need. We'll see how that works. Ha! :mrgreen:

Well... they slurped the money from my account a few days ago so they'd best be shipping me the 8 I ordered. Have yet to get a shipped noticed though. :evil: :wink:

8 packs arrived this morning. 7 @ 26.3v and 1 @ 26.2v. I'm totally cool with those resting voltages. Got 8 DC9000 chargers on the way for super cheap.. love ebay (sometimes). "1hr" charging until those start not working and then at least I have backups. When everything stops charging I sell the chargers, bust open the packs and buy a BMS for it and keep using the cells for (hopefully) several years at least. Haha.

I think mine will show up tomorrow or the next day. I found a place that had the chargers for $20 each. I checked on ebay, but I think the cheapest shipped to me was $45

Interesting...the 28v packs aren't even listed on toolking's site anymore (instead of being listed as out of stock). You must of cleaned them out!

The 28v floodlights are on sale for $20 there.

Yeah that sounds about right.. got the chargers for $13/ea with about $40 shipping. Seemed worth it overall. When all is said and done with the flashlights etc. I'll be at like $1.25/wh for my whole setup, which is actually pretty darn pricey, but it's for a dead-simple plug-n-play 52v100A capable system so that's worth it to me since I'm done tinkering and wanna just RIDE 1,000s of miles this summer. :)

I got my dewalt packs today from toolking. They're all sealed in individual blister packs.

I also got my chargers from nationwide tool for $20 each. Today they're listed as $19. Shipping is only $8.99 per order, so I ordered 3 chargers for a total of about $64.

They're listed as new, but don't come with any packaging or instructions, just a clear plastic bag. Cosmetically, they look new or like-new for the most part, however the contacts on the chargers appear to have usage marks on them.

Price back up to $49.99 as of 4/20/10. I keep seeing references that DeWalt will no longer be using A123 cells and that these are the last of the easy to get packs. The next time they come up for sale cheap, I would jump on it if you want them.

What cells though? If they aren't the Sony/Konion Vs or VTs they are probably much lower C rate generic crap cells.

Toolking.com doesn't even list 28v DeWalts packs any more. :?
