I am sure this has been tried many times but I think I have a new twist.
I can get LiFePO4 for less than $1.00 an Ah, I will offer 90 day replacement and a 2 year warranty.
- 3.6v 100Ah
Tell me what you think. Good bad or otherwise. I need to know how many people are serious about purchasing now and if you want 100Ah or 200Ah cells.
The companies I spoke with all began their quotes at about $1.60 an Ah but with bulk orders I can get $1.00/Ah and probably lower. If lower I will pass on the savings. This is no BMS and no charger.
Shipping may be a pain at first but I calculate $5.00 per battery.
I am an American and have lived in Guangzhou China for over 3 years now. Many of the LiFePO4 battery factories are in a city very near me so I have easy access and can go there to check them out first and deal with them face to face.
I have not spoken with Thundersky even though their factory is also in Shenzhen. If you like I can see about a deal with them and at least offer you better service and I will honor guarantees. But from what I have heard and read here and on other forums makes it sound to me that they use poor quality materials to get a low price.
Samples are $1.30/ah, so 100Ah * $1.30 * 5 cells = $650.00
I have several people interested in getting samples. If we can get a “bulk” sample order I hope that we can at least keep the shipping price down.

Comments and even flame welcome. I am an EV enthusiast, not a salesperson. I hope we can figure this out. I plan to do this and stick with it so I need to know what everyone thinks and what adjustments I need to do to make this work.
