    Received 'new' power station with zero% charge

    Lifepo4 is more robust at being deep cycled. I have LiFePO4 18650 based solar garden lights that go to 0 volts every night and are nearly 5 years old (over 1700 cycles) still working pretty well.

    Eco Flow Lack Of Lifepo4 Across All Power Stations

    cycles is only part of the equation for lithium cells. Calender aging is also faster on NMC. Even if you cycle your EcoFlow 1 time a year, NMC Cells degrade at nearly 5% capacity a year vs 2% for LFP.
