I get close to the same cost for the CA cells, in US dollars before shipping and taxes. The formula I'm using

$/kwh = $/cell * 1000 w-h / (Volts per cell * a-h) using 3.2V as an average discharge voltage

At $143 for a 72 a-h CALB CAM cell, I get $620.66
EVTV Motor Verks Store: 1 CALB CAM72FI LiFePo4 Cell, Lithium Battery Cells, CAM72FI

At $249 for a 180 a-h CALB CA cell, I get 432.29
EVTV Motor Verks Store: CALB CA180FI 180Ah LiFePo4 Cell, Lithium Battery Cells, CA180

At $95 for a 100 a-h CALB SE cell, I get 296.87
EVTV Motor Verks Store: CALB SE100AHA 100Ah LiFePo4 Cell, Lithium Battery Cells, SE100AHA

The SE cells are on clearance, so there is no warranty. But the price is comparable. Although I'd be tempted to stick with the CALBS, I appreciate the OPTION to go with a Leaf pack!
