I'm at the design stage of upgrading a small car (already-converted to electric) from lead acid to lithium, and from Beemers OP these batteries look ideal. However, as a relative newcomer to EV's, I've never made such a high investment (probably 36 x CA180FI) before and am very concerned about the potential for losing my money
So my question then is: given the risks, how might other more experienced members go about such a purchase? Is there already a list of trustworthy suppliers who I can just email for price and availability?
I see Beemer has already answered this question, but these (i.e. the manufacturer, plus one US and one EU potential suppliers) are just 3 very geographically diverse sources. It may well be that these are the best or only sensible options, but I'd welcome any further pointers!
