Prismatic Cell battery?

Is it possible to create a round/circle shaped Prismatic Cell battery? If so, could it power an electric wheelchair 30 KM/18 miles (If there were two of them, 9 miles each) How big would it have to be? How small could it be?

I don't think so because the plates have to be the same size if you start messing with the shape you make it either inefficient or it just wont work. That's why its in a box shape because its the most efficient way to get the maximum surface area for each plate.

Thanks for the help. Could I have your email I'd like to ask you some more questions, if you'd be cool with that? =]

All the prismatic lithium ions I've seen were rolled into a cylinder shape.

e.g. Prismatic cells rolled into cyclinder shape
