The box was in good shape. JD's wife did a good job in repacking the box. Here are some pics.
The cells are packed in a very light semi-hard plastic trays and the A123's fit nicely into them. There are two per tray so the big box contained 7 trays. I measured each cell and the majority of them were at 3.308 or 3.309. A couple were slightly below that at around 3.298 or 3.290. Nothing significant, IMHO.
I stacked them up like pancakes and I marked each cell's voltage on the white paper label on the negative terminal/tab. Some of them were mysteriously marked 900mAh 3.7V as you can see in the top cell.
I now need the JST-HX connectors I ordered to arrive so that I can hook them up to my Revolectrix Powerlab 8 charger to see how they perform.
