    If you could wait another year....
     but short of that just buy a decent flooded battery and plan on it being a starter. Drop me an e-mail

    Don't have much to update on, still been doing research and learning. I am now disappointed in Aquion for two reasons, first they have provided me very poor pre-sales support (and I suspect that is indicative of poor support after purchase). Second they have just re-branded the batteries to "The Aspen Battery" and reduced the specifications greatly. What used to be 3,000 cycles to 100% DoD is now 3,000 cycles to 30% DoD (they word it "3,000 cycles (to 70% retained capacity)"). I wanted to lean towards the technology but looks like I will be looking elsewhere for storage now. You can view the new specs here: http://aquionenergy.com/homeowners/the-aspen-battery/

    No, I was emailing directly with Aquion.

    ouch, as in OUCH. That's a pretty big change.  Any other reports from early Aquion users?  Or is your case the only one you know of so far?

    I see you haven't posted in a while. Any update?
    I hear there maybe some actual Aquion users here on the BI.
