A FYI only, I haven’t checked into Amazon’s LiFePO4 offerings in quite some time, but just saw this today, 100a/h and 10 year warranty for $338 with $50 coupon applied…I have no experience with this particular brand (I have Aims), so I make no claims as to it’s performance, but the Lithium value quotient is becoming something to consider…

I wish I knew how to judge the quality of those batteries.

That would be one of the few things that is dropping in price these days.

I think it’s mostly due to the value of money going down…[emoticon]

Love the advertising:

"Local US Warehouse" that builds my confidence.

"No poisonous lead/harmful sulfuric acid" Let's see, lead acid batteries are extremely easy to recycle, whereas lithium iron phosphate is the opposite.

There is no free lunch.

Enjoy,

I'm hoping the price of copper drops.

Just to be fair England is experiencing the highest inflation rate in the last 10 years. Canada inflation rate is rampant. Neither country has had an election in the last few years.

Supply and demand is at work. Low supply high demand raises prices and causes inflation.

The price of these batteries is dropping due to competition and technological advances.

Price is usually a good indicator.
