Pika was bought by Generac. They have supposedly cost reduced the electronics by having them made by their supply chain in Vietnam instead of domestic American manufacturing. I have not seen the new literature from Generac nor seen a quote.I'm trying to decide if I should go with a Tesla Powerwall 2 vs other battery systems. Has anyone have experience with either the Pika Harbor 6 (20.3kwh) or Sonnen (20kwh) batteries?

Depending on when you take the plunge, having a UL listed system might be a big benefit if you want to expand. It doesn’t sound like the competitors have an active thermal management system, which will reduce their chances of having a full UL package.
Who is the local companyI'm considering a LG Chem battery system as well as Telsa Powerwalls. The local company who installed our two solar arrays a few years ago switched from being an Authorized Independent Tesla Powerwall installer to LG Chem. Our local utility company told me they have more rebates available for LG Chem as opposed to Tesla. If the systems are pretty close in features and price, I'll probably go with the local company because they have truly excellent customer service...
