I will be back to post all information for others to use if it turns out to be a legit deal. This company has Stellar Reviews all over the internet.
I also noticed a company out in Arizona called Phoenix Hybrid Batteries LLC with great reviews I may have to call them for advice, wink wink.
Thanks again for your help, you are a great resource of accurate information and greatly appreciated.

Don't call those guys in AZ. I hear they're a$$holes. The guy that answers the phone is just a know-it-all

Haha very funny. OK I got a pic of a few of the module serial numbers this afternoon. I was sent a pic with 6 modules SHOWING serial numbers 19YRAN00831Q MB2 / 19YRAN00832Q MB2 / 19YRAN00833Q MB2 / 19YRAN00834Q MB2 / 19YRAN00835 MB2 / 19YRAN00836Q MB2 those numbers seem to indicate November 2016 manufacture date but no data on the remainder of the pack..... I hate to doubt the honesty of this company as they have a sterling reputation on the internet and EVERYONE knows that everything on the internet is 100% true.................................. what are the chances that they bought like 100,000 new modules in 2017 to get a huge discount and are simply dolling them out as needed?

Zero AWH CIT LOL That is what I was afraid of. I will try to get all the module numbers tomorrow apparently they are closing up shop early every day until the weather improves in the Chicago area. If all 40 are indeed 2016 modules with same batch code it will be tempting to just order it anyway. I am trying to figure out what 2016 or 2017 hybrid uses 40 modules in its pack that these may have come out of, maybe a Lexus 450?

1) I would not choose to use a module that has sat since 11/2016 (> 2 years) even if it's really "new" unless I understood their life management program. Toyota requires its dealerships to put hybrids in ready mode for 30 minutes every two months to maintain both the 12V and HV battery health.
2) Given their relatively young age and assuming they originated in the upper 1/2 of the country based on "Chicago area", the expectation is that the modules are "like new" in terms of performance/capacity. Jaime's replacement modules from 2X Prius C packs from 2016 were "like new" when he did some limited testing. The recent 40 module pack GS450h pack I built from 2X Prius C packs from 2016 were "like new" when I tested all 40 of them.

2649 + 140 shipping (shipping covers return of core also) . I will post all the details once I receive it Good Or Bad (probably next Friday) so others can order one IF it is in fact what they say it is.
It is probably only going to get harder and more expensive to find these hybrid packs for the GM Two Mode vehicles. The machines are becoming dinosaurs. I put my old pack and the 6 old modules (that the Bumblbee battery ripoff dude Ryan sold me as NEW) on Craigs list for 1500. Figured someone might need a used pack that they can refurbish especially since i already have 6 supposedly reconditioned modules. If I keep the core my Chicago connection has to have another 1000 for a core charge so I really cannot do any less than 1500 on the core and 6 used batteries. No Hits yet.
I will probably end up just dropping the old one in the crate that the new one comes in and sending it back anyway. Most Craigs list buyers are pretty iffy especially if it gets up over 50 bucks LOL.

$1500 for your old ragged out battery is a rip off. Why would you try to [email protected]#k somebody else in need? Honestly, the $1000 core charge is WAY MORE than it's worth. Just send it back.

I wish you had disclosed you were procuring those "new" modules from Bumblebee. I could have saved you the hassle, and I could have saved them the grief. Ryan is a recent hire, and he likely didn't know the difference since they also cell NEW sticks for the Hondas.
