Thank you for the replies.

For now it is not an issue. But at replacement time. I do want LifePo4 batteries. So just doing homework.

I also note that lots of items for sale on Trademe are simply AliExpress/Alibaba items being sold on.

I know nothing about these, but stumbled on them a little while ago, re-sold by a local EV company (coming soon?).

Blue Cars: 277Ah@$564 per cell, so $2,256 for 12V

Not sure about shipping.

Battery company video ETC battery Ltd - they market well...

And as my Nissan Leaf has 48 of these... I can’t wait till someone ‘wrecks’ it for me and I get the pack for its insurance scrap value 😂


$125*48=$6000... whole car was only 11,800 2 years ago and has saved me $8,400 in fuel already! :TU

Haha, same here Neil, or something, anything, to go wrong with it so I can declare it no longer a car but a source of batteries.
On the up side it is saving me loads in petrol and servicing while I wait
