I'm going to take a neutral position on that one. I don't have any experience with the company. The specs look okay. You will need to have it in a somewhat controlled environment as I don't see anything about self-heating.

Self heating?? I did not know there was such a thing. I did hear that lithium batteries should not be charged in below freezing temps, so I thought that they have to be removed in the winter. Is that not true? Would you have a recommendation? I mainly picked this cause I saw good reviews, and the additional 30 Ah over a 200 ah. 

This was my review search

Some of them do have the ability to warm themselves. They use some of the battery's power to run a small heating plate. Mine has this specified in the manual.
