That handbook is very interesting and thank you for it. Problem is here in Canada you can't get any of these lithium batteries. Years ago, our Government banned lithium batteries from commercial flights. So basically, if the package isn't shipped a special way (which is ridiculous in price) you plain just can't buy it. Go to Digikey Canada and see for yourself. Some outfits don't sell you certain parts, if you ship it to a Canadian address. I could order from a selected supplier in the US, but again shipping is a killer. Been there and done that. Only way to get a lithium cell for me is to go to Ali and order there, it has a mediocre success rate. I had a few shipments that never arrived.
