The ezgo txt pictured had 14 batteries at $118 each. The charger was another $350. Figure maybe $40 for materials. It's not the cheapest lithium conversion but it packed a heck of a punch and run time.

Sportcoupe, were the 14 baterries new or used? I was reading up on the replacement packs , and that's $5000 you have sitting on the floor. "WOW"

Used. It wasn't $5k but it was expensive.

I was told that you can only get a new replacement pack from the Nissan dealer if they replace your existing Nissan Leaf pack. That means it's going to be hard for the average Joe to get a new pack no matter what the battery reseller states.

if that pack is used does that mean you do not have to balance it because it is already done?

Negative, you should balance. Choose top balance or bottom balance. Factory is top balanced with a BMS. Bottom balancing doesn't require a BMS but you still have to have a safe cut-off voltage on your charging system so you don't overcharge.

that is awesome! I want to do a leaf build, but would have to go in with someone on some leaf cells. Sportcoupe you have some good builds, I have been following them.

Sportcoupe question... how long will this leaf set last under normal wear and tear ?

Say its 7 years or so and you have sold it , now time has pasted and the pack is dead ... Whats happens now to the guy that owns it, can he replace them or is he stuck going back to 6 - 12 volts to keep the 72 volts

Nissan warranties the pack for 10 years so it must be durable and long lasting.

Say I do sell and 7 years go by, pack is dead. Do you know we will have even better lithium (or other) batteries by then?

unless I missed it I don't think he's doing 72v. But 48ish
