"Of the 17 battery packs to arrive at the Battery Test Centre, 6 have been partially or wholly replaced, 3 are yet to be commissioned, and 1 has suffered irreversible damage. Only 7 are currently cycling as expected without any issues. In most cases the issues can be attributed to inadequate product development and/or a lack of understanding on the part of local salespeople/technicians in regard to product integration (ie.with inverters or control systems).

Nevertheless, there are success stories. The Sony & Samsung battery packs  from Phase 1 exhibit low rates of capacity fade, despite over 1300 cycles having been completed. Of the Phase 2 battery packs, the BYD battery pack has completed the most cycles, and demonstrates the lowest rate of capacity fade,suggesting reliability and longevity.With respect to the market at large, Tesla have been the clear price-leaders, but a battery cell supply shortage continues to hampered their ability to deliver on their order book. Lesser-known large-scale manufacturers like LG Chem and BYD have not quite matched Tesla on a $/kWh basis, but have generally managed to meet (lesser) demand for their products. For mass-market uptake, further price reductions are required, alongside improvements in battery management, product integration, and technical sales support.
