First I would not recommend it unless you are simply bashing in the parking lot.

The cheaper places for individual loose cells are normally the hobby shops out of Hong Kong like RC Model Shop, Dinball, RC Mushroom, Precision RC, etc.

Yes, and for around $8 more you can get matched battery pack.

I agree about the Hong Kong site post... 4200's @ $5.40 a cell at precisionrc and rcstation. If you want in the states check www.batterystore.com. I'm sure there are others these are the ones I've gotten stuff from before.
