Happy to help 🙇‍♂️
There are to few people from the EU in the forum :)
i agree, even if i am a lost american ;)

i am still hoping one day EVE will have a eu warehouse and production site, so hopefully taxes and cost will come down a bit

Almost hit 285ah, I'm very happy with the capacity of this one.
Super. That is perfect.
Charge it a little bit, do not let it stay empty :)
Also ... sleep :)

In the chit-chat a comparison about living in US VS EU ? ;)
Or a solar comparison ... what are your experiences ?

Unfortunately production can not leave China. There are some government ban to export raw materials I think.
And we (solar users) are not as big market as US.

I REALLY APPRECIATE you taking the time to make this thread. Finding information, even a small data point like you have provided, about potential sources is a HUGE HELP in these trying times of searching through the confusion and nonsense on alibaba.
I feel like people who are willing to take a little risk to try out some of these different vendors can be a valuable canary in the coal mine for the rest of the forum members here who are trying to build systems.
I salute you, sir!

Thank you for the feedback, I hope it helps. It can be a difficult experience buying overseas. Hayley also refunded me twice with no delays which was great as I wanted the older eve with no welded studs.

Are almost all batteries with 16/17 internal resistance?🧐
Eve cells that are 280AH, yes, or lower.

FYI, read the manual for that meter, it's in the resource section. Not accurate above 100AH capacity (or so it says). It is close, but basically resistance is too small for it to measure accurately.

I'm happy with it just that mine showed up in all chinese for menus, I wanted to to at least have some basic infomation as I recieved batteries from different vendors.

There is a setting to switch to English. The manual is useful.

I had tried on mine even went through manual and contacted the seller but could not get it. They gave me a refund of 50% off for the issue.

Basen vorig jaar november happy times om cellen te kopen, DPP verstuurt, 2 maanden transport had ze net voor kerst.
de prijs was toen tussen 62 en 80 dollar per cell 280 ah . daly 200 ah BMS 135 dollar. op het ogenblik worden cellen gewoon te duur, ga zeker niet 120 dollar betalen voor een cell.
erg tevreden er over
