I'll go ahead and stick it at the top, let me know how your experience goes with them.Elmweaver wrote:Not sure if this thread is for SLA battery packs also. If it is then here is a place I found with good prices. I can't say if the batteries are good though will have to wait until I can afford some to find out.

+1 for Justin. He's local to me, and answered all my email questions promptly. Truly a pleasure to deal with someone so enthusiastic about what they do.Ypedal wrote:I can vouch for Justin at Ebikes.ca.. not only does he provide excellent support, he TESTS his packs before he ships them !

I have purchased Nimh.. and Nicad packs.. and motor kits... from this place and have always had nothing but great service !
No! And the distinction is very important. Lithium polymer is the same lithium cobalt (LiCo) chemistry as in laptop/cell phone batteries (lithium ion a.k.a. Li-ion), but packaged into a polymer allowing cells of odd sizes, such as "prismatic" (rectangular). Lithium polymer carries all the risks, benefits, and concerns of lithium cobalt since it is lithium cobalt. Lithium phosphate (LiPO4) is a different chemistry, safer, longer-lived, lower energy density, higher power density. The a123 cells are the most common example of lithium phosphate. Lithium phosphate can also be packaged into a prismatic form. Lithium manganese (LiMn -- example: Emoli cells) is a third kind of common lithium chemistry that sits between LiPO4 and LiCo in most measures of performance.Deepkimchi wrote:...
Next is more expensive - and still haven't figured out if Li polymers are always Li-Po4 batteries - $749

These are lithium polymer, not LiPO4. Besides the big tag saying "polymer", the voltage is a dead giveaway. Lithium polymer and lithium manganese cells are 3.7 and 3.8 volts nominal per cell respectively. Lithium phospate cells are 3.2-3.3 volts nominal.Same here, are Li-Polymers Li-Po4? $ 460 for 10 ah with BMS.

The cells are rated conservatively by GM at 7.8C, Yabert's tests of Volt packs on the DiyEv car forum suggest a higher C rate, 15+ C!.
$1,400 plus $360 freight. Still over $1k less than new lead!
