Youíre gonna love them

Iíd you havenít already, mows a good time to bypass your OBC so when they come in all you have to do is drop em in, charge em up, and go. They ship around 60% charge so donít take too awfully long to charge up. Think mine said they were full at about an hour.

I bought my original 16.5kWh 2013 Chevy VOLT pack for $800.. then back early last year, I bought 25kWh's of Chevy BOLT cells and paid $80 per kilowatt for them.

Prices have sky rocketed on Lithium and I would have bet my barn a year ago that $70 to $80 per kW for salvaged EV cells would be common by now.

WTF? You can't touch EV cells right now for under $150 per kW, and those are the used up junk if you can even find them.

With all the EV's being sold, I would have thought the salvaged market for cells would be flooded...

Where are all these cells we should be seeing?

CP241, good point. So I had to sit down to decipher exactly what cart I have because the serial numbers second character is damaged. Looks like it's a 2005 PQ -- so it's an IQ cart.

Here is a video I found of an Allied video and product for bypassing the OBC -- is this what you did? My OBC looks different since I have 6x8v bank.

Allied video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM1sH-5TGCY

I've seen other how to's, like this one, that seem much more complex.

Iíve got a DS so Iím not sure on a precedent. On my DS thereís a sense wire that tells the controller a charge cycle has occurred you have to bypass also. Otherwise the controller can lock out operation. Thereís a sticky here in the electric club car section on bypassing the obc. I donít know which instructions would apply to your cart, Iíve never owned a precedent. Just lots and lots of DSís

Iíd imagine if you read through it, one of the variations in that thread will match your cart and what you see under the cover. At least thatís how I pieced it together. My obc is just a LOT harder to access because itís under the rear access cover, which is buried under a rear seat. You got it easy

So I picked up the batteries and charger tonight from Plowmanís. Very excited for the install! I picked up a Lester OBC bypass wiring kit that looks very easy to install. I am going to use this as an opportunity to install a 48V->12V converter and install a full LED light kit with turn signals and brake lights. Maybe even paint the body, too! Itís already lifted on knobby wheels so this isnít a full build. Hopefully will be installed by next weekend. Pictures to come!
