    yep. Feels like an offer I should accept, other than this effectively allows the company in China to make a profit from their fraudulent operation.

    Help Required - AliExpress Lifepo4 battery dispute

    Been offered half my money back, and I keep the battery, OR all of it back, but I need to return the battery to China. Given half the cost is £126, and it's £86 to send it to China, I'm wondering if I can be bothered to post it back.. for an extra £40.

    This is the monitor I used that Aliexpress say isn't up to it Which is a little odd, as they sell them.

    Lifepo4 battery price to good to be true

    I totally agree, but AliExpress seem either unaware that it's fraud, or are culpable in the fraud, as they make it extremely hard to make a claim. I'm unsure what I can present as evidence to convince them.

    Is there a reference I can use? If I can prove that 13.4kg is IMPOSSIBLE to be 300ah lifepo4 chemistry, I don't need to do a discharge test.

    The unit does come with a supplied charger, but it's got a Euro plug. What I'm going to do is, I have ordered a Euro to UK plug converter, which is arriving tomorrow. I will then attempt to fully charge to battery with their provided charger - they can't object to that surely. I need to...

    The unit seems very well sealed, but it sounds like there's little 'warranty' to invalidate.

    I think the dimensions / weight of the whole unit might be a way to dispute their 300ah capacity claim... the box (33x21x17cm and 13.4kg seems quite small)
