Re: [EVDL] Phd in Materials Science on LiFePO4 batteries video WAS: Lithium 60ah 144v

With my order of SE/CALB cells I also received a PDF with a listing of all
the cells in the entire shipment. Looking through that I can see there were
enough cells that could have been grouped within 2 ahs of each other. My
100ah cells came in between 110-114 but could have been selected to be
between 110-111, 111-112, or 112-113 as that's where the majority of cells
were. I can see paying a bit extra to remove the few 114ah outliers which
they could still sell in a small grouped pack. They could even get a higher
price for those by selling them as 105 or 110ah cells. Throwing resistance
into the mix would make things more difficult but I think getting similar
capacity would go a long way to making management much easier.
If they grouped the cells at the factory from the entire production run they
could probably get them even closer.
