Re: [EVDL] Hymotion & A123

No reason the price would change unless A123 was able to improve hymotion's process, or the synergy resulted in more efficiency. And hymotion is still getting cells from A123, there was no middleman that was cut out.

When I worked before in a company, it would have to "purchase" products that were made by the company itself!

I think it might drop a little versus if they didn't get aquired?

Subject: [EVDL] Hymotion & A123

Did anyone else notice that Hymotion was acquired by A123Systems?
Or am I like realizing this now (maybe way late) and everyone else already knew?

Also they have the contract with google and some others as well.

Anyway so my thinking is that when there plugin conversion kits are
available in the spring a serious bit of extra cost will be cut out
because essentially the battery manufacturer is selling the kits????

Does anyone foresee a drop in A123 cells in the near future?
