I don't bashing your prices Don - the numbers bashing them alone.
Short calculations (as above) telling the truth.
I don't deny that many people are so leazy or high efficient at their work as Lowell is and earning a lot of many $50+ per hour, so they will not wasting their time for saving a little $2500+ as calculated above.
So your business have a great future especially in USA and Canada.
But here at forum people looking for most efficient solutions (for their wallets too), so don't be surprised for a little comparisions.

You can always make the analogy that a consumer product can be built cheaper but that really is not relevant. Factories will still exist to produce most of the products sold in our market and the isolated DIY market is of little interest to them in the overall picture as even YOU must agree.
I'm not sure who is here isolated. DIY here is NOT isolated i'm afraid.
But maybe i'm wrong.
Don Harmon wrote:What others need as far a KW Hr. is also not of interest to us, since most e-bike users rarely need anything in the 40Ah range, and our market is e-bikes and LIGHT Electric Vehicle usage. There will always be those FEW who will want the extreme power packs, and they usually can build their own, so we don't need to cater to that market. Thunder Sky can service them just fine, so we don't need to.
I'm afraid you are wrong again
Your first and the best customers could be Lowell or Safe i see.
Guys who need 36V or more for the sake of speed need a lot energy.
If somebody feel good with 720 Wh on board then usually don't care the speed and power and 24V is more than enough for her/him.
So 6 or 8 TS 40Ah cells could also work fine for him/her - all depend on his/her income and how his/her is leazy and uninformed.
So now all is clear your Proffesionally Built Pack can work the same time as 2 or 3 home made by the everybody who want save the money.

I hope this explains my position here, and really don't want to waste any more time arguing over something that is just silly in the long run. Hope you find your solutions and are happy with the results. Our 40138
Format cells are unique at this time, and we feel there is a receptive market for LiFePO4 Professionally Built Packs that include a BMS, Matching Charger, and Factory Warranty. We'll have to see how the competition prices their new offerings before we start worrying about what a few individuals think about our pricing.
I would attach a jpg. here that shows the advantage of our Large Format Cells, but I don't know how to do that ???? It's not yet UP on our website.
and Good Luck
