laptop batteries £2.50 per kg
#1
If anyone is interested this guy is selling laptop batteries new and used for £2.50 per kg with a minimum order of 1 ton. This is too expensive for me at the moment but works out at £0.10 per cell.

Ignoring import dity that is 30c per cell for apparently brand new cells.

I would guess they're not brand new ....certainly unused .... perhaps stock that has been sitting in a warehouse for many years ...

It seems too good to be true ... cells do age even when not used , age faster and lose capacity when kept  at higher temperatures . 

That said if I was living in Somerset I would go and visit them hoping to buy some samples for testing...

The important question is where did  the seller get them from??? He probably paid a pound a kilo!!

contacted the guy he seemed happy to sell them in lower quantities for bigger price (£3-£3.50/kg)

They look like Dell laptop battery packs, could be a liquidation bargain or fake packs. Either way I'd be interested to hear the results if you get some packs.

Notice the top of the image and the label on the box compared to the images on gumtree - the red pattern.
