Li-ion batteries do best with regular use and frequent charging, I would avoid a unit that has spent most of its life in storage and used infrequently, or one that has been used hard every day. You can ask the seller how the pack was used and possibly get some idea.

Deep discharge or overcharging can shorten battery life. A seller may or may not be honest about this.

Right and this is my exact concern.  The seller said they are selling it due to the fact that they never use it.  This leads me to believe that it was used infrequently.
