Before purchasing from LionEV, be sure and read all the responses in this thread. Do cover yourself, fully with recourse ability to recover your money if you don't receive product, or satisfaction. This not only applies to LionEV, but really to ANY purchase over the internet or otherwise.

I wouldn't pay anything out, without reversal capability, if the product isn't being handed to me as the payment is going into the cash register, period.

Thanks for sharing your LionEV story! I believe I was the first to speak openly of my experience with LionEV; that was something more than a year ago:

At that time, MBarkley/Texhoma was a STRONG defender of LionEV both here and on EVDL. I am still waiting for him to fully describe how/if he was mislead by LionEV. And perhaps appologize to any victims he pushed into the arms of LionEV.

I am eager to hear from other LionEV victims.

My LionEV vehicle has come to a semi-successful end, though at a much greater cost:

Actually Ken Curry of LionEV finishes his federal sentence on a Fraud conviction one year later, 1/16/2010. He is inmate #56030-083 at Morgantown FCI, West Virginia. You can verify it on the Federal Inmate Finder website.
I didn't find this information soon enough and have paid the price in battery packs purchased not being shipped.
Perhaps you could share the details of your LionEV experience? When and what did you pay for and how much you lost.

Last time I looked, seemed to be dead. Finally. OOPS! I "spoke" too soon; they are back up with new content.

I still have not heard from Texhoma on this subject.

My EV, which began as an attempted purchase from LionEV is finally developing some reliability at 12.5K miles. I regularly drive it 100+ miles.

I'd be very interested to learn more about what it took to put him away as we seem to have a similar case against James Morrison (EV Components/Lithium Depot) which was just dismissed from attempted Bankrupcy protection, and back in Civil Court. Same problem with over 20 people having pre-paid batteries that James refused to ship.
As I understand it, the LionEV guy was "put away" for an eBay gold coin scam that he ran before he got involved in EVs. As far as I know, no one is pursuing him for his EV scams even though I think there are several with losses of $30K+.

As far as sources for TS LFPs, I still trust Dave Kois and Everspring
I'm sure there are other reliable suppliers.
