In the long run it is even more advisable to abandon the traditional car batterie style and take one 24 volt 400, 500 or 600Ah lithium batterie instead building it up from 12 or 24 volt sections.
I would prefer a central based BMS controller supervising the hole batterie at once, not packages without com port where one cell does not know what the other does.
And you should look at the guaranteed capacity. Means this battleborn has only 90% capacity, according to their discharge graph. In my eyes thats a hint for low quality?
A good quality batterie, with good chemistry inside, will guarantee 100 to 108% capacity.
There is no "drop in batterie" that is misleading because in the end you need to setup all the electronics, chargers, BMS aso. to lithium. That is the real change. Not in what plastic case the cells are packed.
