That's 100$ per cell shipping included... For 100Ah. I know it's fast shipping...but...we can have 2.8x more capacity for the same price.. with a wait a little over a month.

Not quite. The price in China may be lower BUT add on shipping, duties/taxes etc and you KNOW the S90.00 cell becomes $175 +/- by the time it hits your doorstep. Never ever forget the cost of shipping the stuff & the duties & taxes etc you do not see because it is DDP.

I payed 100$ per cell, Eve 280Ah ddp all included, so yes the 100$ include all, battery, shipping and customs.. to my door in Europe.

That's a good price for 4 cells. But why are 4 cells $399.00 and 8 cells $899.00 and 16 cells $1799.00 🙄

I am interested in CALB. BLS has had satisfied purchasers on this site. But Will had a problem with the Lithium Titanate cells he purchased, which was corrected and then shortly thereafter this occurred. https://diysolarforum.com/threads/bls-battery-store-issue-176ah-8-pack.16251/#post-190544 How can we have any confidence we will get 100 Ahr cells?

CALB and Eve are not a fair comparison.

The large capacity EVE or Lishen cells are a great deal for many usages, but its really not an apples to apples comparison, comparing the big aluminum commodity cells to CALB cells (or similar).

Still near 3 times the price/capacity ratio and not sure to get grade A... (In fact I'm pretty sure it's not) all in one it do not sound a great deal to me.

Here is a discussion.i.got with bls some month ago, was 299€ to Europe/usa. So...the "nice" rebate at 384$ for the forum.... Is bad....and even at this 299€ o felt it was a bad option.

Well, if you want a really sturdy pack where you will have vibration and movement. Mine has been in the bed of my truck when off roadi. Or if you will be taking them apart a lot, they make sense. Compare the robustness of a calb terminal to that of an EVE or Lishen--no comparison. I have been running my CALB pack for 6 years. I have them firmly held in place but no side bracing to stop swelling and all the other considerations you have with EVE and Lishen. Calbs have their place.
