Curious if anyone would be interested in purchasing Sony 18650 VTC5 2600 mAh cells that have been removed from packs that have never been discharged. I am working on acquiring a very large lot. I am curious what a fair price would be for these cells. Is a 2600mAh a large enough capacity for diy applications? What quantity of cells go into a DIY project? Anyone want to be contacted to buy some?

10watt-hours per cell, on vehicles that typically have 20,000-100,000 watt-hours in battery packs gives you the scale you'd need to supply.

The shortest range EVs would need 2,000 of these cells.

The cost of that, compared to the next best option, means you're going to struggle to compete.

However, you could try http://secondlifestorage.com and see if there are interested people there.
