I am in Sacramento. Do you have a way of testing capacity or resistance?
There may be more people like me interested in replacing their high resistance cells but don't want to buy brand new cells for an older pack. years ago the San Jose EV club had a guy who had a library of older lead batteries in good shape for just this reason.
I will keep checking in on this classified
Thanks

I work in this industry and have skills and equipment to test and maintain these cells. I also value my reputation more than money, and would never sell something that is not worth the asking price.
I never brought these cells to full discharge, so I can't tell their exact capacity right now, but based on how I used them I am certain they are like new.
Once I take the pack apart I will test one cell for capacity, just so I can be 100% confident in my own claims.
These cells were purchased directly from CALB by the company I work for, and we are one of CALB's largest US customers, so we always get high quality cells with matched IR and capacity.

Hello.

For how many cycles have they been used? How many years in use/stored? For what application?

I'm interested in the remaining 40.

Regards

About 400 shallow cycles, rarely below 50% DOD.
3 years old cells. Bought brand new. Used in my EV with good thermal insulation in mild climate. Never exposed to heat or cold. Normal use about 1C discharge rate or less.
