Nearly 2 years old, and NiMH will never get cheaper by any significant amount. It's a fully matured, declining technology with no significant technological gains for 15 years.

Just think 11 of these is equal to an insight battery pack
Huh?

11 2170 cells equal to an insight battery pack? What math are you using?

11* 3.7V * 6Ah = 244Wh (assuming the high end of 6Ah, which is probably optimistic)

120 1.2V * 6.5Ah = 936Wh


936 / 244 * 11 = 42 cells; not 11.

Given that 1 Lithium cell is almost exactly 3X NiMH cells voltage-wise, it makes sense that it would take 1/3 as many cells.
