    A123 20ah's ordered Thurday arrive today!

    So I ordered 56, A123 20ah cells last Thursday from Xin at victpower. Arrived today! Did a quick voltage test, all at 3.28 volts. $24 per cell delivered by DHL express. Going to do a 2C capacity sort and test with my CBA-III.

    Nice price! Per AH, that's a little under what I paid for 40Ah LiFePO4s. Can't wait to see how this all works out - or where you put them.

    Nice deal it's really the way to go. So far from what I've read everyone been happy with the cells from victpower. Whats your plan for interconnecting the tabs?

    just saw this:

    http://www.greencarcongress.com/2012...-20120326.html

    you might want to do up a test rig, or at least call to verify your cells were not part of that batch

    and it sounds like you got your cells pretty quickly, were they shipped from the US? is victpower just Chinese middleman?

    From Hong Kong....Victpower is some kind of re-seller. No one really knows why theres now a surplus of these cells....rumor is they were destined for a delayed car...Fisker? They are real 22c lifepo4s. I just did a 2C run and got 19.2 AH
