Has anyone tried out Turnigy's A123 knockoffs? From the numbers, the trade-off of a lower C rating for a fraction of the price seems pretty good.

I haven't tried them, but there's some reviews on RCGroups, among others:

They use flat cells, so they won't make direct replacements for the A123 cells, and seem to inferior in general.
