order enough eve 280Ah cells for another 24v pack from @Amy Zheng and the packaging was fantastic!!!
They did not try to overpack a box with a bunch of cells and see how much tossing they can withstand; just 2 cells per box, very well packaged in perfect fit foam shells; boxes nicely taped up.
This is the best shipping approach for batteries I have seen yet and probably what is always need as all the shippers (ups, fedex, usps, etc.) seem to take it as a personal challege to toss, roll, and crush anything they can get...boxes had a few crushed corners so they tried; even when I went out to the UPS truck to help carry them in and told the guy they are batteries, he just started rolling them towards the back of the truck hehe
Inside their custom foam carriers the batteries were WELL protected...

How is this for a battery ordering process:
ordered 3 Nov
shipped 4 Nov
received 6 Nov (yes, the same year!!)

All batteries at 3.294V +/- 2mv
They look like actual grade A cells, no rewraps, no dents, zero bloating!

yes it cost a bit more but well worth it to actually get your cells, and not only have something arrived, but arrive intact hehe

capacity testing will commence after I let them rest upright for 24hrs...

Still waiting on 34 EVE LF280K cells ordered from @Amy Zheng back in mid Oct 21. But the pics she sent prior to shipping from China where in that same 2 per box configuration u described. Fingers crossed.

BTW... Just checked and us fedex tracking number has gone live. Delivery is scheduled for Dec 6.😁
Oct 21st ~ Dec 6th, that is about 7 weeks, I thought it will be a lot longer due to ships shortage and overloaded port.

Can't say I don't disagree ... But the FedEx tracking numbers say all 17 boxes (34 cells) are in transit, in Chino ca., on time and schedule for delivery Dec 6. Up to this point there has been no tracking info for the numbers on the fedex site. Now they're active.

The tracking will not become active until the packages are pickup once they are cleared by Custom, that is what I have been my experiencing in my orders from oversea.

I should have written it Oct 2021, I didn't mean the 21st.

Order: 34 EVE LF280K cells. Oct 9 to Dec 6. Arrive right on schedule. China to N Central Fl. Boxes were in perfect condition. Perfectly packed 2 cells to a box. Great price. Flawless communication. I've now purchased cells from both TX and China stock. Impressed. I'd order again. Thx @Amy Zheng

I did Amy's US stock after having a order from china, ordered in aug for oct delivery, got canceled and refunded.. took a bit longer due to ships and such. but got them couple days ago 4 in a box with special foam containers. the terminals are not the best with the raised section.. would more like to have a nice 1/4 or 3/8 stud welded on the top to attach stuff to. but will make it work.. did not check voltage or such as they just came in to daughters house.. looking forward to getting them put in and in operation..
