      This information is out of date, but last I checked (maybe 2-3 years ago), someone on this list had done high discharge-rate testing, and the "yellow ones" had a totally crappy peukert exponent compared to the "blue ones".

Shipping was a bit rough at about $9 a cell so total was about $108 shipped per cell in a small lot of 8. Im sure they would do better (shipping especially) with 50 cells.
