The discharge rate is listed as 1C, which wouldn't be enough for a typical automotive conversion. For instance, if you string 40 of them in series for a roughly 120 V (nominal) 26 kWh pack, you can only get 26 kW (34 hp) out of it (128 V * 200 A). Perhaps they can safely operate at a higher discharge rate in short bursts, but the listing doesn't claim that.

thanks Brian, what would be a good discharge listing for lifepo's? If it says up to 5c would it mean it can handle 5 times the kwh? Can you explain a little more I'm a total noob.

what do you guys think of these?

130ah 10c max discharge

anything I'm missing that makes it not ideal for an EV pack?
