    The Goped websie has them for 520 Dollars a brick... If having LiPo you will need a BMS as compared to LiFePo where a balancing charger would suffit.

    The controller settings, while minimally different, allow the transition from LiPo to LiFePo.

    There is car and motorbike starter batteries with A123 cells avaiable on Ebay, same goes for Kits with Headway LiFePo cells.
    Offers available include headway cylindrical cells and some seller offer BMS's on upcharge as for example this sellers with his 100A Bms - but the original Goped BMS canb as well be bought from their supplier Batteryspace at 90 dollars per unit. Link to a exemplary headway kit listing:

    The currently cheapest way to get Li-cells is by ordering RC hobby Packs such as the Turnigy 5ah packs, see https://endless-sphere.com/forums/vi...p?f=35&t=58064 .

    There is a thread over at endless- sphere which is about a motor/ controller swap but shows several pictures and details on RC Lipo'sbeing used as well, see https://endless-sphere.com/forums/vi...62249fa3c71a20 for details.
