I thought I'd mention PVC pipe as a good cheap enclosure for these lipo batteries to protect them from puncture or blunt force trauma.
After test fitting a few lipo packs in bunnings today (I must have looked like a terrorist making an IED right there in the isle ) I found the 100x50mm is exactly the dimensions of a 6S2P pack and the PVC has just enough give in it to squeeze the 10ga wires in there too. Alternatively if you're running banks of 5S there's a few mm to spare around the wiring so you'd want a thin piece of foam in there to stop them rattling around. Pity they don't make end caps for the rectangular stuff like they do the round, but oh well I'll make some out perspex/plexiglass.
Whack on a few coats of gunmetal hammertone and I reckon it'll come up nice.

I can put up the cash if we can figure out how to get a discount.

I'm seeing $64.42 on that
Damn your pimp pricing.

Is there any advantage in getting the 25Cs ? I dont think any of us try to pull that much from them, unless you want to run a 1P pack on your 100 amp controller and get all of 3 minutes

That is what most bike kits come with. 10Ah gets you 20A with 10V sag....
