I don't know about that. As I mentioned in the review and based on what I have seen since April they assemble the battery systems themselves. They are not traders in the sense of just buying a product and re-selling it, plenty of evidence for that in the Alibaba profile page. Also, their battery engineer has been doing all sorts of software updates for me in recent days. You wouldn't see that type service or know-how in a company that doesn't "own" their product.
