So, just saw these and curious if anyone has any experience with them as of yet.  I will probably be looking to upgrade from FLA right after winter and just starting to do the research and see where things are with all of the technologies now.  Thanks for any input.

    I tested them and a client is using them. A great battery especially if you use it with Schneider electronics. Closed loop charging and Soc out to the cloud/smartphone if needed. This also means that there is no external shunt or a bat mon. A great company based in the US. Good Engineers and support.

    Good to know Dave, especially like the part of being based in the US.  The capacity is nice and if I can do 2 of these that will be my goal.  I am running the 6848 xw+ so nice to know about the integration with Schneider

    Greetings! I was researching how to connect my eVault to my XW Pro and came accross this post. Was your client using a eVault battery or the new eFlex one?

    Update here. The title of the post is not quite right. The eFlex is working closed loop to Schneider. The eVault is being worked on by Fortress to modbus command the Gateway for closed loop charging and getting Soc out to gateway and the Insight Cloud.
