I have not experienced the Anti Gravity batteries yet, I believe that they are using A123 cells, but am not sure on that. I have just picked up a new cylindrical multi cell battery by Alien Motion (AM12) for my 950 EFI project, so far price and build quality are good.
Ken, you know I've got no beef with you. You're on my recommended list on my blog and your jet kit makes my 950 purr AND give excellent economy (40-45 MPG, even on days when I didn't exit third gear !).

A123, which just filed Chapter 11 made a point of using prismatic cells. That was their "edge" as they originally saw it. AntiGravity does not use prismatic cells.
