Ebay is where I got mine from but I prefer unprotected one's that don't cut off at a specific voltage... at just the wrong time. :problem:

And they be free out of old laptop battery packs as a bonus. :angel:

Dunno which one of us just had a mild attack of dyslexia here but I use them in the knowledge that they get removed and recharged in a charger that has individual charging bays and circuits. If anyone proposes to fit them into a battery pack to charge altogether they ougth to use protected one's or also use a balancing device.

Panasonic 3400mah are the best
Get them from Torchy the battery boy or Ecolux shop

Cheers

Panasonic NCR3400B are pretty much the standard. They are sold in various wrappers, with different levels of protection. For want of a better description the gold disc circuit is supposed to be better than the nickel plated steel protection.
Torchy the Battery Boy runs a test results page:
http://www.torchythebatteryboy.com/
and sells on Ebay:

He has been used by a lot of forum members.
