Reputable sources for good value ebike batteries?

Hello!

I'm looking to buy a battery pack for an ebike -- likely something in the 48V 14Ah range. I'm wary of just searching by price, since I don't want to get an inexpensive battery that's poorly made, doesn't work, etc. Can folks recommend a few/handful of battery pack suppliers that are generally regarded as (a) reputable and (b) providing good value for the money?

Thanks!

P.S. I tried to do a couple of searches in this forum before posting but couldn't find anything useful. Maybe my search queries were poor. Didn't want folks to think I hadn't tried! :)

Good value in batteries is always a crapshoot. Even reputable suppliers sling a few crappy specimens here and there, and the ones who make good on their faults don't sell for cheap.

I've gotten good batteries from fly-by-night sellers. I've had trouble with relatively high dollar batteries, too. If you want certainty, build your own. But time is worth money.
