UFO Batteries????

hey folks, in an effort to source pre-built 24 volt batteries I stumbled upon UFO Power Technology Company out of Shenzhen. They have decent customer service and have been very responsive. They provided me with a quote and have provided advice regarding shipping to Canada. I’m curious if any of you have any experience with UFO? I’m obviously nervous about oversea transactions. Any info is appreciated...thx.

Go ahead. Take a chance on a supplier that may be a complete unknown here on the forum.

Or, you could use one of the suppliers that many members have used and report good results from.

Unless the price is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper (in which case it's 99.9% chance its a scam) and/or you're determined on buying a premade battery module its almost impossible to beat a DIY solution of 3.58kwh consisting of four 280ah cells for $500ish delivered by Amy. Add a BMS for another $80 and you've got a pretty good setup.

Hey HRTKD, thanks for the feedback. For DIY build your own, I would agree with you...there are some good success stories and I would align with those vendors for sure. For pre-builts, I’ve been looking for alternatives as the price is significantly different from multiple vendors. Apart from Battle Born, I haven’t see a lot of endorsements for other options. Unless I’ve been looking in the wrong places. Please enlighten me if you’ve got opinions. Thanks

Thanks for the feedback Joe, so you’ve been happy with the service? Where in the USA are their headquarters? Thanks

Hey Maast thanks for sharing...ya you’re right...the DIY is a way less expensive but I’m a little nervous on the build. Maybe I need to experiment with a smaller build then designed my cottage system with a little confidence.
