I like the following:
www.allerc.com
www.aircraft-world.com (In Japan but they are awesome and super fast shipping)
www.lightflightrc.com
www.tanicpacks.com - Brian is simply awesome, and I think Tanic are the best cells ever.
www.cheapbatterypacks.com

I buy mine from www.atlantahobby.com (http://www.atlantahobby.com). They are local so that helps. :)

Ditto on MaxAmps. I have used a couple of their packs and really like them.

I will have a new supply in next week. I am selling Dualsky(www.dualsky.com) batteries. Right now I only have 3s 1350, 8.5C in. Next week will have 750, 1050 and 2200's (all 12C burst 15C) in around wed-thursday. They are great batteries with pack ballancer built in and solid packaging. They are comparable to quality to all the major brands, but will be better priced! If you need a pack I don't have, let me know I will be placing large orders weekly and can reserve some!

I use the Polyquest, they seem to be a good one now. The price is right with the fair market value.

I have E-tec, Electrifly, and a few Kokam's.

I like the fact that you can test each cell and charge each one individualy. We have been adding taps to the FMA's for a while now and Polyquest does that for you. Others are starting to do the same thing now.

It's your $$$.

I haven't found anything that will perform as good as ThunderPower given the same weight. While some battery brand claims 15C or 20C discharge, most of them weight a lot more and can't hold the voltage like the ThunderPower prolites. Best place to get them is tppacks.com.

You can't beat the 2000mAH 10C Li-Pos at Dymond RC http://www.rc-dymond.com/ if you don't need super high discharge rates. The 3S pack is $35. I use three of those packs in parallel (6AH) for my 51" wingspan sport flyer (Samba). You can't beat the price.

I bought the Samba from Northeast Sailplanes when they had the combo deal for the Samba, MP JET AC28/20-7 brushless motor, Castle Creations Phoenix 45, and a prop adaptor. I only have four flights on the Samba, but those Dymond batteries do the trick. Static current pull is about 40A with a 12x8 APC prop. At just above 13A per pack, the battery voltage holds up well. A three pack of the 15C Kokam 3S 2000mAH batteries would have cost about $240. The Dymond three pack was $105. I do use the Kokam's for smaller planes that use only one battery and need 20-25A, but for the Samba the Dymond's worked out great.

Sorry to take the post off subject, but here is a video of my Samba.... let me say flying using three of the 3S 2000mAH Dymonds to tie it in..........
