Interestingly just read an article about home solar
. Demand there is up right now which, as a market force, would keep the price of batteries up. That was another guess I had but didn't have anything to back it up until now.
I'm not in the market now but will be in the coming year or two. Once the increase in supply shows up to meet current
demand we should see the expected price drop. Though with Covid still a thing, either side of that equation could affect price until the world gets back to a little more normal commerce, which I will look forward to.
