Anyone tried a Chins LiFePO4 heated battery? Thoughts?

Thank you! That didn’t come up in my forum search. Reviews seem good and they responded to my question about the serviceability in a few hours.

Advertised on Amazon, they sound too good to be true. For $/Ah, they are among the cheapest. They have good reviews on Amazon (always suspect), and they come in 100, 200, and 300 Ah models, and also have heated models. Would love someone's info on a deep dive into these things before my investment. https://www.amazon.com/LiFePO4-Batt...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=08RBASJE6Y2VAZHRT1AG

The biggest issue was the bms cutoff.

Honestly for me and my usage that isn't a deal breaker. Especially at the price.

I'm looking at 1200Ah for $5100. If you know a better option at a price even close to that and in a similar foot print I'm all ears. Going into a van build so space is important.

DIY will be less. My 560Ah battery bank (two 4s batteries) was ~$1200 with BMS. You can scale down the Ah to fit whatever space is available.
