Thanks Booster.

So $6.25 to $6.67 per Ah. Battle Born looks to be $9.49 per Ah & Renogy's Smart battery $9 per Ah right now.

I went to their warehouse and paid 1821.43 for 2 out the door. If I didn't have to change so much to add 2 more I might do it... I still might.

yup for me 298.84 additional savings. I believe they gave me 15% plus tax when I bought them from the warehouse.

I went to Lion's site to see the specs, but they don't provide enough information so I sent them a question, which is this: Do these batteries have overcharge protection? I ask this because I have two KS2 Ecotreks Rev. H, which do not. However, Rev. L does have protection built into the battery. I would not purchase batteries which don't have that. They gave me a cryptic answer which says that the BMS will protect from overcharging. I asked them if that is an external BMS or something integrated into the battery.

They said it is built into the battery, which is good news.

The 105 Amp-hour is $1399.99 for 2 batteries.
That is $6.66/amp-hour

Default Price & Energy parity

Just for comparison purposes:

If you are an Escapee Club member the Battleborn price is $874 per battery (instead of $949). Free shipping.

Annual membership is $39. I got the membership for the battery discount but ended up stumbling into an Escapee affiliated campground during a road trip this summer with a 50% off discount. The savings ended up paying for the membership cost, so there is that.

BB 100Ah batteries have an internal capacity of 108Ah, so the 100Ah rating is good for the full 10 year warranty period.

I would highly recommend watching this teardown of a Battleborn battery (along with some videos of other battery teardowns) before making a purchasing decision:
