The batteries can be new or re-purposed from a LEAF, but there is no clear indication whether it’s significantly cheaper to go with a used one:

“xStorage Home gives you the choice of buying a new battery or even one that has lived its first life in a Nissan LEAF. By choosing to give the Nissan LEAF battery a second life, you are also choosing to take a step forward towards a more sustainable future.”

Is the Storage Only option: starting at £6,446 (≈$8,690) for the 4.2 kWh, or the 6 kWh version?

On a $/kWh reference, both seem a bit steep in today’s battery market.

$8700 for a 6 kWh used battery?! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

It’s weird how they couldn’t even give this wall box a cooling fan. 30 degrees tops, I get it. But inoperable at freezing temperatures?

Put it inside the garage?

This is worse than the Tesla powerwall on so many levels…

So versus the Powerwall, less capacity, less capable, more expensive and with Nissan’s terrible battery reputation, no thanks.

Used POS battery and still charge me a premium for it?

No, thanks. Tesla powerwall is cheaper.

I’m sure they’re only using tested battery cells insider one of these. Will be a 5 year guarantee on these.
Batteries used in desert, or desert like environments will probably not find it’s way into these batteries.
Or else they will be in a world of pain..

So what? These are still used and the price is still x3 what it should be. You are better off going to the junkyard and making your own.
