I think all three is the go, get to as many people as possible - many don't Facebook.

This Groupbuy is nothappening. I want to give a summary if anybody will else try.

1- I am only approched , contacted by German , Scandinavian and Serbian people.
2- They were more interested in low price/kwh Li-on cells without cycle life/IR/quality concern.
3- BYD modules ( 3.0kwh min capacity ) was interesting if their cost can be Euro350 in Rotterdam.
4- Battery Hookupwas slow but at least responsive.
5- I understood import cost will be a lot lower then Euro180/kwh.

So yesterday i bought LFE cells from Netherlands for my small mobile application.
For me low price/kwh Li-on cells were not inveresting because even NEW 18650 has 400-500 cycle.
Second life Li-on will not be logical for 5 year investment.

My next application will be 10kwh+ Batrium or SBMS of Electrodacus + Off Grid inverter/s.
When the time comes i will try one more time for Groupbuy.
And i will try to support all groupbuys from NL. My company has a big warehouse I may store some
amount of Battery.

Thanks.

Just a note on this. If you cycle Li-Ion between 90-20% DoD and also (but less important) charge them at lower than 0.5c then they will go thousands of cycles before hitting 80%.

LiFePO4 are the cycle life (and safety) king, no doubt about that. But if you can find very cheap Li-Ion and then set up your BMS to only do that DoD cycle then it can often make more financial sense.
