    Large lithium ion fuel cell batteries

    Hi all! Looking for advice. I have a chance to get a regular supply of larger (7lbs) lithium ion batteries used for converting bicycles to little motorbikes. They are not usable due to damaged fuel cells. Finding lots about li-ion in small electronics on the forum, just for ewaste, but nothing about larger ones. Is there any difference from a scrap perspective?

    Prices are lower than laptop batteries. I think Mario is about $0.65

    Asked two local yards already and they only do lead acid. Waiting to hear back from the others.

    Got one small pallet available right now, guessing about 350-400lbs. Sent an email to Mario about it am and waiting to hear. But if they can be processes by ewaste folks who take them despite being closer to car battery in size then that answers my question. Thanks so much!
