Alberta Lithium vs SOK

So, I'm looking for a battery for my trailer.

I'm debating between this one from Alberta Lithium. $450 (CAD) for 100AH.

Includes low temp cutoff, cells are (apparently) certified. I haven't found anything negative so far. Their facebook page is somewhat active with no negative responses. The downside is I don't really know what's inside the battery. No real way to know quality of manufacturing. 3 year warranty.

Some googling and searching here shows me that it's probably made by LithTech:

I've done some googling on lithtech batteries but have not come up with much for reviews or teardowns so far.

My other choice is SOK for $765 (CAD) for 100AH and 7 year warranty. With SOK, you know you're getting quality for sure.

Any thoughts? Worth the risk on a cheaper option?

What did you decide? Looking to see if the AB battery is legit as the price for us Canadians is attractive.

I ended up getting the 100ah battery from signature solar in the states. I was just uncertain about the quality of the internals of the AB Lithium batteries in the end. The description of the Signature Solar battery sounded like better quality to me. Another big factor for me was that they were in stock and shipping to Canada was reasonably priced and fast. Didn’t have to wait.

Can I ask what the charge was for customs duties etc.?
And how do you like the new batteries

DHL charged me just over $50 CAD for duties.

Actually, I have not yet tried them. They are for my trailer, which I am in the middle of renovating right now. And the reno is very behind schedule. Hope to get them installed before the end of the month. So all I can say right now is that they came quickly and well packaged.
