Value of Ebike batteries
#1
What should I be expecting to pay for used high amperage batteries worth using in an eBike?

For used cells, anywhere from $0.25-$1.00 is a fair price depending on a few factors, such as capacity, tested or untested, raw cells or battery pack that you have to harvest cells yourself, etc.
CHEAP! 2200mAh Sanyo Cells for Salvage, Only $0.17/ea!!

High drain cells tend to cost a lot more because they are constructed better. I used to pay $1-2 a cell for "proper" ebike cells.

You don't want to use crappy old laptop cells for an ebike, I learned the hard way. They heat up like a bitch and die early. Power tool and hoverboard battery packs are good sources for ebike cells. Such cells also happen to be very hard to find around my local area compared to laptop packs.
