Question Looking for LiFePO4 200ah battery (Prismatic Cells)

Hey Everyone,
I'm looking for a LiFePO4 12v 200ah battery (Prismatic Cells) preferably cased in aluminum. Can anyone recommend a decent reliable seller of this type of battery? A dealer in US would be preferable but most are off-shore that I have found.


So far in my search I have encountered questionable companies, shipping times, and/or amounts. It would be awesome if someone has purchased this year and had a good experience.


Thanks much,
Steve

Closest I've come to that is CALB 180 from EV West in packs of 4.

Need to make your own box, or ask them about straps & end plates at least.

the Electric Car Parts Company lists a 200ah 12 v battery pack of 4 individual cells, in 2 different configurations, amongst other close options. They've been very helpful to me.

Are you looking for bare cells? Do you need bms?

I will need the Prismatic Cells and the BMS's to go along with them. I've seen the Electric Car Parts Company. I just don't know a lot about them. Thanks for the reference; that's exactly what I'm looking for.

I purchased my cells & bms from them 3 years ago, excellent pre-sales and sales!

Elite Power Solutions (EPS) may be another option for you. Although not fully enclosed (Prismatic Cells), it has aluminum plates and steel bands for strapping. One of the best bang for your buck systems out there. Here is one distributor: http://www.starlightsolar.com/elite-...ery/index.html
