Vectrix battery

Ok so I actually bought a vectrix vx1 it was very cheap they seem to be that way now so I bought one, the battery is pretty much dead, but hey it's a project.
I have discovered something about the original vx1 battery that I haven't see posted anywhere else.

Each row of batteries are reading zero volts ok battery is done for right, wrong.

The thing I discovered is that if you pull out the rows of batteries and zap the whole row with a 12v car battery booster you can actually revive the row of nimh batteries enough to charge the whole row with an imax b6 ac charger.

This will charge the whole row of batteries in one go no need for a special charging system.

As they are out anyway you can check them over for damage, but bloody hell are they a pain to get back into that steel band thing that holds them together.

At present I've gotten up to finding around 6 bad cells out of the pack the other cells so far all seem to charge fine.

Any ideas where to get hold of some nimh batteries for scoot would be most welcome, otherwise i'm looking at bodging together some kind of battery replacement for each cell.

Vectrix Electric VX1 Motorcycle/Scooter

Anyone know what is wrong with my VX1? I plug it in and the charger comes on for a minute with both battery and temp red lights lit and then turns off so I cannot charge it. The power gauge is on zero.

My 2007 VX-1 just died

Hello,
My VX-1 decided to become lifeless. I have been away for an extended time and when coming back home I plug-in my VX1 and nothing happens. No life at all. Display does not lit up. The scooter had been charged up at least twice while I was gone (5 months). Can anyone give me clue as to where to start looking for problems? Could the charger be dead?

Selling my VX-1 NiMh bike in San Diego

Not sure what year it is and I need to get the VIN but I'm posting this now to see if there is any interest on this Forum. Vectrix gave me this bike to use while the factory fixed my Li bike. My Vectrix contact said they put in a used NiMh pack although the rear fenders say VX-1 Li+. It runs and charges but only gets a couple of bars above half-way. Odometer shows about 1020 miles. It is it perfect shape and would probably make an ideal Li conversion candidate. If you know of anyone interested, please PM me or email at dandiego92112@yahoo.com. Thanks!
