I purchased 16 LF280K direct from eve after reading so much on this forum. I thought buying direct from eve would gurantee the best cells and service ( the premium was around $500 over the resellers on the forum at the time).

I received my batteries and i can only say they been packed totally inappropriately for international travel. Only a tiny sheet on the top of the batteries and they all have various degress of squashed terminals or some sign of damage to the cell.

I am now totally deflated this is so much money. I have contact eve and sent pictures, they are asking my how many cells are damaged.

What are peoples independent opinons on the condition of the cells ?

Thanks in advance

Oh man, I am right on the verge of ordering my batteries, and had the exact same thought process as you (why not order directly from EVE, and i liked their terminal adapters over the welded studs other sellers put on), but now I'm terrified. ☹️

Ask/specify packaging method. As with big corporations in America they may well be slow to figure stuff out.

Can't help with how to remedy this but the way that the ones I received from Docan were packed you would have to try really hard to damage them. They have special foam that isolates them.
