Just getting started.
Cells are mapped and discharge jig is draining the unwanted bricks. 2 in this case as it needs 5 bricks removed from the middle.
My last Tesla3 module and it’s sold. These make great Gem batteries and I’m hoping someone will pick up the torch.
Just getting started.
Well I think I am going to have to pick up the torch… I have a 25S in my garage that we will need to split eventually. Sooner than later actually. Glad I will have a good teacher
Hey Mike, on that battery, isn’t your wife going to notice that her car doesn’t go zinnng anymore?
I might just sign on as the West Coast rep.
@smspring There’s the perfect battery for your 2016!
There’s a shipment coming from MN to San Diego the end of July if you want to piggy-back on that.
Where are we at? I have a local that could use it in his 72v Bad Boy Buggy.
I gave @smspring the lead batteries out of my 2016 and that got him back up and running for the near term. I think he still wants to go tesla. Let me nudge him out-of-band.
@Inwo @Erniea15 i still want them and the other parts you can supply. But I don’t need them urgently so if you know you will make more in the next couple months then I am
Ok with waiting. Up to you but I am ready to pay as soon as they are shipping.
I will not be making another Tesla battery, but I have a good supply of new batteries.
I believe the shipper will be in San Diego
On the 24th for Ernie’s older gem.
Yes, send some money and I’ll get it ready for him.
DCI delta-q charger?
If you go all in with Ernie, that’s some serious investment.
- 8kw motor (drilled if you’ve got it)
- new sevcon s4 72 volt controller programmed for 48v contactor
- deltaq charger
- telsa 20s battery, in case, jk BMS
- wiring harness for the accelerator and directional control
He has a 2016 just like mine. Previous owner changed the gears so it does 30mph now… guess those are the 12:1 gears.
That should make it almost identical to mine. So once I get around to doing mine, should have it all figured out to help Steve
I eventually want to explore the super charger option… But I’ll worry about that later when I’m up and running.
Trying to think of there’s anything else I should buy while George is coming out this way! I have a stock pile of motors. Need to find more cars to put them in
Tnx, that helps a lot. I got two motors drilled today. Can’t test fit them yet but working on it.
He just sent some money, so I can get it all ready to go.
The JK bms is a different one I’m using now. The two Tesla batteries have “ant” bms with lcd.
Have you looked at yours lately to see if it has a high or low cell?
The one I have here, #3 is always a little low, even if I charge it. After this module was in storage for more than a year cell was only down .2 volts, so not a big issue.
I disconnected the bms/lcd to see if that’s doing it.
This may be a stupid question, but should i at all be concerned about the legality of messing with batteries for EV’s?
Is there a sort of “do’s and dont’s” list that anyone could share?
Thanks in advance.
