From what supplier? I'm in the market for grade A cells.
docan tech - warehouse in houston

Docan just told me yesterday that they have no stock of ~300Ah cells in the USA or in China, and that they don't expect them for quite some time.

I have decided to go with 16S2P of 230Ah cells to get the capacity and a bit of redundancy. Two parallel strings will allow me to take one offline for service if needed.

Prob lack of stock in the US as well, with unknown shipping dates from China, similar to 300+Ah cells.

In case you haven’t heard they are going through a bit of a rough patch over there right now.

It'll get worse before it gets better - I expect prices of LiFePO4, and indeed other goods, electronics especially, to keep increasing in price substantially this year. Component shortages are still not solved and don't appear to be for some time to come. I even have my doubts these cells will be readily available like they have been until now...
