Low priced cells on the market
Question: We have received a quote for a battery pack from a Chinese supplier. The quote is considerably lower than the price of the LFP cells on the market in Europe. Why is this so?
Answer: Yes, the pricing that is available from some suppliers in China is astonishingly low. Some offer only price as low as $0.50 to $0.60 per Ah. Of cause this “low” price creates a suspicion about the quality of the products.
We suggest customers should review these questions:
The situation on the China market is very messed up. There are many companies who expected big sales of the lithium cells, but are now forced to dump the price of the cells in order to pay back the loans needed for the production.
In the near future, we expect that the gap between the top quality producers with verified products and with realizable sales history and the “B” grade suppliers and second hand market cells will keep growing.
