Anyone have any idea how much it cost to build a LiFe cell?
1) Are the batteries just plain expensive to build?
2) Is there not enough batteries to meet demand?
3) Are they artificially keeping prices high?
4) Are they just pricing them on their value compared to other battery technology?
I know right now I can get replacement batteries for my camera for like $10.00. Which I think is a good deal for a rechargeable high power battery that will last me years.
When it comes to a bicycle battery, they just seem to be very high priced. Anywhere from 85 cents for the cheaper batteries a watt to maybe $2.00 a watt for the better batteries.
