BatterySpace.com no longer offers the Scout battery, and all comparable products are nearly 2x in price

http://www.all-battery.com/74vli-ionbatterypacksandmodules.aspx has some, but they are also more expensive.

Emailed BatterySpace.com about making a custom pack for us: NO DICE

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the inquiry.

The battery pack you get before is a clearance item and that is why the price was so low, basically, the cell for that battery pack was discontiuned and the pack we selling LC-18650H2S2P2-CHINA is with higher capacity, I believe that is no other pack can be lower than $20.00 or closer.

Thanks

Raymond
