A friend is considering a 12V LiPo conversion. I found this company whose products are substantially cheaper. They claim all LiPo battery cells are manufactured in Asia in the same factories.

One of the youtube "RV battery and solar experts", about whose credentials I'm sort of skeptical, claims the reliability of commercially sold LiPo is very similar and where the biggest differentiator is the BMS. The cheapest DIY BMS can be very unreliable.

Any thoughts on that product from specialized power specifically? Did you explore them as well? They certainly have cost on their side.

Thank you,
