I just think more alternative sources are going to pop up in the future.

I can vouch for Alarmhookup - have purchased 1,000(s) of pre-tested 18650 from them over last 2 years and all have been exactly as they advertise + reasonable shipping prices.

I agree, when I started I purchased some hoverbike batteries off them. These are some nice packs though. BYD is one of the major car manufacturer in China, so this is probably from some EV application. If hbpowerwall's coupon code for 10% off works that makes it even better! If I just started a powerwall today I'd just jump on it. My cost right now is probably around $50/kwh not including time and labor with 18650s (which is a lot!).

Coupon Code "BATTERY" will give you 10% off the entire store, including the BYD batteries.
