Which ones? There are a lot of LiFePO batteries out there. They need a special charger and Battery Management System and preferably a Low Voltage Cutoff circuit. You can buy complete batteries or just cells.

It is on its way me from China one of those from ebay. I just dont know if its plug and play (like just hook the negative and positive wires to the bike or do i have to make some kinda connection so the charger can charge the battery? Need help :(
If you bought from a reputable seller like Ping, you should get a charger and battery with connectors that work together, no fuss required.
If not, who knows? But if you know how to solder or are willing to learn, you can solve that problem.
In any case the batteries do not normally come with a connector appropriate for your e-bike system, since the battery maker doesn't know which e-bike you have when the battery's produced. You'll need to know how to solder and you may need to buy connectors that are appropriate for the number of amps your bike uses.

if you buy a ready battery pack there should be charge and discharge socket, as the photo below it shows the discharge socket, what you need to to is to confirm with the seller what is " + " and what is "- ", then use a proper plug to connect it, not difficult, but need to confirm with your seller for this.:p
