A123 systems is now selling 12v lead acid replacement packs!
I have been a long time lurker and have building battery packs for a while now. I though it maybe of interest to some of you to know that you can now get 12v LIp04 lead acid replacements for scooters direct from them. I know for us pack builders this is a bit expensive but for someone that doesnt want to mess with building battery packs this is a great solution at about 50% of the weight of the original battery.
