They got a new product in. A full 24kwh Nissan Leaf battery pack from Nissan. They are used, but the price is pretty reasonable at $1800 (plus $400 for shipping).

$400 shipping for 1 or 50 of them too. That's a good deal but few people would buy more than one.

Saw that this morning. 13kwh usable of battery for $1799.

Scrapped lithium packs from the Leaf. Good deal except for the potential of half the kwh/cm^3 regarding space in application.

Scrapped for a reason? Too much of a risk IMO versus their other offerings.

is it possible to convert a old NIMH to lithium battery the peak discharge is 37.6kw and peak regeneration is 32KW (the motor is 60kw rated ) according to the EPA

the stock unit is very small you can only get a few miles when the pack was new.. .now maybe a few blocks

it was only 1.5 kWh when new so even 17kwh would be a huge upgrade

1,773 to 1,830 lbs.. not like it would change anything (so i could only carry 5 fat people instead of 8) lol

Cell Tower Batteries

My wife's former coworker made an electric MG using retired cell phone tower batteries. Supposedly they have a very easy life and are traded out every two years out of an abundance of caution. I don't know where he got them but I thought the story line was good.

I'm sure it is, but I'm also sure its probably a ton of work to do it. The electronics side is the tricky thing unless you're a wiz at that.

For those who dont want an entire Leaf battery pack they are now also offering individual cells. These are very nice in that it's pretty easy to bolt them together with the terminals they have.

You would just carry it to your car and plug it in the cigarette lighter and it would maintain the voltage so the alternator wouldn't kick in... They are only $15.

I think I'll start a thread on that.
No that wont work most are limited to 10amp or 15amp fuse you will pop it on the spot the max possible 20amp with #10 wire
