Cheers Neville, will do
Its a particularly exciting part of the build for me, been waiting a while to get my hands on some of these.
And while they really are too good to be true, they are still pretty damn good

I have just trolled through all the listings on Micromall NZ's Trade Me listings, and although he has an abundance of solar panels, controllers, and batteries at pretty sharp prices, he currently has not one LiFePO4 battery listed!! I wonder if he is simply waiting for stock replenishment or waiting to see how the existing stocks he has sold perform?

I have just asked a question on this auction - Warranty ? I have a mate in Taradale who has fitted a 100 AH version from this seller into his Ford Transit based motorhome. It has only had very light use so far and is performing perfectly. However, these batteries are constructed using pouch cells which are not as durable or have the life expectancy of prismatic cell construction.
