Allgrand and Dixon batteries

I have been considering getting an LFP battery (maybe 1 or 2 Pylontech USB 3000) for back up use (no PV). Now these things cost around R20k each and were starting to look favorable when compared to a bank of 4 x 200ah AGM batteries (usually around R5k each). Other than the cost LFP seems to only have benefits.

 

Then today I stumbled across these two 200ah Batteries

This shop has good reviews although its only 3. Allgrand manufactured in China with some German R&D and a warehouse in SA somewhere from the youtube videos.

Don't know about this store. I know of the deltec brand though.

 

Anyone have any experience with these?

These have a quoted 1000 cycles at 50% DOD. Not bad - batteries with training wheels so to speak.

 These have no datasheet I would steer clear of them.
