I bought the Vectrix scooter yesterday. The batteries will not charge. The scooter has been stored for quite some time.
Is there any way to refurbish the NiMH batteries that came originally in the Vectrix.
New battereis cost $2,600.
Any information on the possibility of revitalizing the original batteries would be great !
I never did try to find a buyer for my scooter, but I just got a nibble from a neighbor. We're going to take it to a shop on Friday to see if the charging problem can be resolved. I'm actually ready to sell as-is for a couple hundred bucks. We'll see how I feel after getting it fixed up. I really haven't wanted to use it more than a half dozen times in the past year or so.

I guess this is the realistic future, for new "battery swapping stations" instead of your typical oil changing station but I think it will take a long time to come before they can get rid of every gas car on the road.

How can we determine if our electric motorcycle had a BMS? We imported 2 electric motorcycles in late 2010. They were ordered with a 5000W motor and 72V90AH LiFePO4 battery packs with a BMS. They were routinely charged and test ridden. One bike had about 500 miles. A few weeks ago, it was ridden 20 miles and parked. Approximately 50 minutes after the ignition was turned off, the bike burst into flames and was demolished. Fire marshall determined no signs of foul play. We trying to determine the cause. We are speculating that the battery pack was NOT LiFePO4. We are also speculating that there was no BMS installed, because we cannot find any circuitry between the + and - terminals. How can we verify if there is a BMS? Is there any other way to determine by examining the other bike? We are looking for answers to this safety issue.
