I just purchased a set of 4 304ah from Daisy at Docan. We agreed on a price from Houston and she mentioned that it would be around 30 days since they did not have any in stock. 2 weeks later, I had them delivered.

3.29v on the 4 cells and no physical issues. Charging now and I suspect that they will be withing the norm of the capacity ratings. I cannot say how happy I am with their service and product. Sure beats the last beating I got from Aliexpress. Although I did get all my money back, it took 2 months from the time I ordered, to the time I realised I was getting screwed, and the time I got my money back from PayPal.

The price is negotiable?

They were pretty firm. You know how it is. You can get them from China, pay for more shipping, and wait for months. She says they had 280ah in the US but no 304ah. I believe I paid $625 for 4 delivered. None of the sellers were willing to negotiate much and they were all within a few dollars.

She certainly under promised and over delivered. I'm not looking to get this project done before Spring, but I was happy that my money was not 'tied up' for weeks before I got the product.

UPS. There was two packages. One with three and the other one for the last one. They did get separated during the delivery process, but they were here within 24hrs of each other.

The label did not say CATL. At least, I did not notice that. The invoice mentioned EVE.

$606 plus PayPal fees.

+PayPal fees. I do not use credit cards. Life is so much easier when you pay cash vs buying stuff on credit.
to each their own. I find cash and checks a royal pain, my ccs autopay, and i get a documented breakdown of everything i bought, and i get a decent amount of cash back a year.

You might want to use the Alibaba chat function for this.
@MakeMePower If you want to work with Jenny, which I recommend, maybe message her here. If you go to the Alibaba site you may get handed off to someone else and your experience may be different. I find the salesperson can make all the difference when working with these companies. We really need good reputable sources for these cells so I believe in rewarding good service with recommendations. That's why I took the time to make this post. Good luck with your purchase.

Which is why I'm recommending Daisy. There is absolutely nothing that went wrong. She was honest, forth coming, and delivered the product in half the time stated.

Nothing against Jenny.

I get confused a lot but still learning everyday still.

"She's pretty ugly" LOL! that is really good example, I never thought of saying it like that using 'Pretty and Ugly' that way.

""The pool in your yard is an attractive nuisance." so are we saying the pool in the yard is not good?
going full digression here.... momentarily....

Lat's eat, grandma

No. According to Daisy Efest on 5 November:
thanks Mike,

i think its pointless for me. I'm looking at an RV, I will never hit these cycle counts. will prolly run 95-5 to be honest. even if i get 500 cycle It will prolly take me years.

Jenny is talking to me in PM now, thanks everyone

I'm with you. I'll sell this RV and move to a new one a decade or two before the batteries reach end-of-life.

Just a brief update. I bought 32 of the Eve 304 ah cells a few weeks ago and finally got them built up and hooked into my system

When delivered, they were within 2 millivolts of each other, so I figured I'd just try charging them as a bank and see what happened, I could always top balance individual cells if needed. After charging to 3.4 volts per cell, or 27.2 volts for each 600 amp hour battery, they're still within 2 millivolts of each other, I thought that was pretty darned impressive and shows the quality of these cells.
