A the A123 looks pretty good in that test but to make it fair it would be interesting to 'normalise' the graph on a discharge per ounce basis, or simply test the A123 against liPo's of the same weight (a 3s 3600mAh would be about right). I'm sure that the comparison would look a lot more LiPo favourable if done that way.

Also cost being taken into account would be interesting, though I do appreciate that a simple 'cost new' comparison could be misleading as A123 should have longer life.

It's interesting that the Gens Ace falls well short of it's claimed capacity, maybe few cycles on the LiPo may also improve it slightly, as you say. I take it that it was charged fully to 4.2v per cell?
