Wow, it's been tough! We ordered hundreds of new cells on August 9, before we ran out of current inventory. 4 Weeks later, the container got loaded and it's sailed. Not only are there delays in the USA Docks, China docks cannot keep up with loading. Only one ship can fit in a loading berth at a time and there is a bazillion tons of freight waiting for the world markets.

The sea freight time is the easier part of the equation. Once they arrive, there are no berths available in LA/Long Beach and as of Sept 7, there are 44 huge container ships waiting at sea to secure an offloading position. For reference, before Covid-19, it was UNUSUAL to have ONE ship waiting. So things suck now and Christmas Shipments of toys and junk is now being ordered. (Don't mean to offend any toy store owners or Tom Hanks) Delivery dates are out of our control until we get some solid notice and we will keep you posted.

We are expecting a top quality shipment with now welded studs and more info on upgrades to come. But they are brand new.. Grade A+ cells and a much higher AH rating. I just wish they were here.

On this link there is a priority list to have orders fulfilled. It's totally voluntary and no commitment. First come, first serve and the list is getting very big. Thank you for your tremendous trust and support of our battery products and the awesome Victron Brand. Sign ups will get priority and a discount coupon.


Thank you again for your support.

well after 1 month of sitting in a wharehouse and then another 4 or 5 sitting in a container they will be effectively A- cells unless they were A- too start.

Hey, 7 exclamation points is excessive even if shipping is free. ;)

For anyone considering doing the math, this is about $220/kwh.

The website says $899. So right at $225 each.
And now there are over 150 ships off Long Beach waiting for a berth.
I don't think I would buy anything from China right now. When it gets here fine, otherwise I'm hanging onto my US dollars.

Anyway, we will be out of stock soon. Thank you for your interest
