Lithium battery price developments for EU market
Recently some of our partners asked about the price developments of LiFePO4 batteries on the European market.
From May 2014 to September 2014 the US dollar has increased its value by nearly 8%. This means the raw price of imported goods from China against original pricing in Euro has increased significantly.
In addition to raw costs of goods, there are more costs based on USD currency: shipping and logistic costs, insurance for sea cargo, bank fees and currency operation cost. All of these costs multiply the raw change of the USD/EUR value of the goods. As a result there is a total shift of operation costs in EURO up to approx. 10%.
In addition, the manufacturing costs in China keep increasing as previously explained in these articles:

The reality of the international sea cargo from Asia
From the email letter:
I am sending you this email to apologize and explain for the delay delivery for your April shipment of the goods. The April container of your order, originally scheduled for April 15th, was in fact finished on May 8th and was transported to Shanghai on May 10th, catching shipment May 12th as scheduled.
But after that the forwarder gave us the info, that the ship missed our container and failed to load that container on. Then the shipment was unfortunately deferred to May 21st.
What is worse, the shipment from Shanghai to Europe was again delayed until June 8th, due to a delay when the ship stopped at Manila port, as there was anti-China activities in Manila at that time…Well, this was a political factor we can not control at all. I can send you the explanation letter from shipping company. After that this container left for Europe finally on June 14th.
GWL is covering the risks of European customers, who do not have to make any risks with business from Asia. Goods from GWL is ready in European warehouse and our customers do not need to care about delayed that happened during the shipping from Asia.
GWL and deliveries of goods at fair prices to remote locations
Question: I want to order 4 pieces of the solar panels from GWL. I like your pricing. But when I add the VAT and the shipment costs, your price becomes higher. Perhaps if you make a 15% discount for me, I can buy from you. I am from a small village in Dagestan.
Answer: We welcome customers from all locations. However our customers need to be reasonable concerning the expectation of the final pricing for the delivery. The shipping costs need to by paid, and the applicable taxes must be added This may increase the price, especially for small orders.
Check following suggestions:
* Making a bigger order volume: we suggest increasing your order volume, by adding additional components to your order. This will split the shipping costs between more products and the final price of the individual products will be lower.
* Share your order with more people: we propose to get some of your local people around you to share the order together. Perhaps you may encourage your relatives, your colleagues, friends or neighbors to buy similar products. When you mane one order together, you may reach an additional volume discount and share the shipping costs together.
* Find a local partner for regular co-operation with GWL: you may contact your local hobby shop or some other specialized company and propose to them to make the purchase from GWL for you. Perhaps they decide to get involved and become GWL local partner. This way the company may order at volume order pricing and you can benefit from this kind of co-operation.
* Start your own small business: Another idea is that you decide simply to go ahead, and to start offering the GWL products and solutions to people at your vicinity. This way you can soon reach the volume discounts and benefit from lower pricing.

The most distant parts of the earth
We understand that sometimes our customers live in very distant parts of the earth where there is not any direct way to buy the DC power solution products. We will be very happy to serve you and to help you to supply these products. However we cannot substitute the costs for such deliveries.
Each customer needs to be self-responsible and self-sufficient concerning the decision to make an order and to bear the costs for such an order.
