    3.3Wh/$ for 140Wh/kg packs was too good for me to resist.

    I doubt that will help. I have seen a Lipoly fire and other than moving it out of
    the building it is going to crisp itself.

    Certainly should be! I might finally be able to do a burnout Those lead packs really never had me satisfied.
    will be 88.8 nominal, 60Ah (i overpurchased by ~10% in case of bad cells)
    voltage is a bit higher than the components are spec'd for, but if i cap the charging at <4.1v/cell i think i should be fine.

    also very excited to use a set of these (URL http://www.methtek.com/category/battery-protection/) battery protector circuits, so it DOES NOT go up in flames... and oh the wiring trouble they will save me

    Am trying to talk myself out of (or in to, depending) buying a shiny new MacBook Pro with a Retina display. This would however eat into my already non-existant budget for a battery pack replacement (or starting a whole new elmoto).
