Manuf Comments
A123
  • The original* M1 cell is the best cell for power applications (lowest DC resistance)
  • Owns HyMotion (Prius PHEV conversions)
  • Used in the KillaCycle
  • Actively recalling cells already in the field
  • Only way to get them now is by disassembling DeWalt packs
  • The original* M1 cell explodes like a fire cracker if exposed to flames, violently ejecting its contents
  • Tested by Zeva (Zero Emission Vehicle Australia)
  • safety guidelines
  • charging instructions
  • pack design
(*) There is evidence that A123 has since changed the M1 cell: its DC resistance now appears to be much higher, and matches the K2 cell's. Their propensity to explode may have been reduced in the process, but we know of no testing in that regard.
Advanced Battery Factory
  • Catering to RC hobbyists
  • Provides cells welded together
  • Very little tech info on site
  • Also known as Splendid Battery
Aleees
  • While they offer LiMg cells on their site, they do not actually make them.
Amperex Technology Limited (ATL)
  • No specs on website
  • They also make an 18650 LiFePo4. No info on website
BAK
Baoding Fengfan New Energy Co
  • Similar to K2 and A123 cells, but steeper slope (lower voltage)
BYB
Bestgo power
  • Former employees of HiPower, left because of HiPower's poor quality issues, to start their own battery company
CENS
Compact Power
  • Intended directly for auto manufacturers, not for small end users
EiG
  • They make cells, modules, batteries, BMSs
  • Hard to locate website, with minimal content
  • Contact form
Electrovaya
  • Higher voltage (comparable to LiCo), but safe (comparable to LiFePO4)
  • No info on website
  • Specs are confidential and not available for publication
  • Maxed-out production
Enerdel
  • Company is in bankruptcy, but operating normally
  • Specs available only by signing an NDA, even though the spec sheets are pretty much worthless
Enertech
Gaia
  • Very limited ability to respond to inquiries.
  • US presence, through partner LithiumTech, has been drastically reduced
GBS
  • Sold by Elite Power
  • Sold in groups of 4 cells with end plates and caps
  • 200 Ah cell has one terminal at each end
Gold Peak
  • Not officially released, no info on website
Huanyu
  • Tested by Zeva (Zero Emission Vehicle Australia)
K2 Energy Solutions
  • The LFP26650P is a comparable to the A123 M1
  • The LFP26650EV has more energy but even higher DC resistance
  • The LFP165EVS and LFP300EVS are actually assemblies of small cylindrical cells in a prismatic case
    • Ease of connections of prismatics
    • Reliability and good thermal characteristics of small cylindricals
  • They will weld cells for you in blocks
  • They sell a 5P4S block, and a 26P1S brick, of either the LFP26650P or LFP26650EV cells
  • When exposed to flames, nothing bad happens
Kokam
  • Link to website of US branch removed, as it is no longer navigable.
Optimum
Phet
  • Tested by Zeva (Zero Emission Vehicle Australia)
PSI
RealForce
  • Prismatic cells look identical to Sinopoly cells (black)
SAFT
  • For military applications
Shandong Hipower
  • Users report widely differing reviews on cell quality
  • Presentation not very business-like
  • Website is often unavailable
  • Specification sheets unavailable, other than simplistic propaganda
Sinopoly
  • Winston Chung (founder of Thundersky) sold Thundersky to Sinopoly (HK); then Winston Chung reopened it as Winston Battery and Sinopoly sued Winston
  • Although touted as Thundersky, the black Sinopoly cells are not the same: they are plain LiFePO4 (3.6 V max), not LiFeYPO4 (4.0 V max)
Sky Energy / CALB
Tenergy
  • Their specs have no hard data
Thundersky
Valence
  • Offers complete batteries with BMS
  • Used in some EnergyCS Prius PHEV conversions
  • Cells tested by Zeva (Zero Emission Vehicle Australia)
Winston
Zhejiang Headway
  • They show 18650 and 26650 as well, but they're 3.7 V, so they must be Cobalt, not LiFePo4
  • Cells are available with tapped holes for screw mount (instead of welding)
  • Tested by Zeva (Zero Emission Vehicle Australia)

More spammers than resellers:

  • Shenzhen OSN Power Tech Limited, China, spammers
  • GPR company, Chinese spammers: Instead of making good cells, they send out spam, and there is no way to stop their spam, because they send it from a fake email address to which you cannot write back (sindy@gpr-battery.com)
