Thanks for the advice. I did edit my post having realised I was looking at fake cells.
RE: your 21700 link. To replace the entire battery pack of an I-miev, equal the cars original capacity, with these would cost around £4,250 just for the cells. This is pretty good.
£5000 seems to be a consistent figure wherever I look and which ever form factor the (genuine) batteries come in.
Battery prices are meant to be falling rapidly. Perhaps high demand is what is keeping the consumer retail price up.
Either way, there doesn't seem to be any substantial support for the battery packs for these cars yet.
