Hi John, thanks for doing this group buy.
For those of us that are interested in possibly buying these in the future but don't know enough to judge this form factor, etc. can you or someone post about these questions...
If you intend to buy from this source again is there more background info on these pouches on ES? Such as best methods for testing and assembly for connections & packaging?
What is the weight savings by using these vs 26650 cells? Other main advantages? Cost? or ?
Is this a "trusted" well known source for these batteries?
I know cell_man in the past had some spot sourcing of these that seemed like some kind of backdoor deal that came & went in the night & was gone by daylight.
Is this whole mystery sourcing scenario now a thing of the past?
Or, is A123 finally opening its doors just in case GM ain't going to play nice as their fiat source of cash infusions barring bankruptcy? It's really fracking psycho that they don't sell cheap in small quantities at least through 3rd parties or off-brand.
What entities really control A123? Just GM or ?
