Hi:

Dead Evercells can be a real problem. Technical docs suggest that they can be revived by a number of charge /discharge cycles - somewhere between 10 and 30. This might help, you should give it a try. However, i've also seen strange (ie.; very inconsistent) behavior from Evercells - you just never know.

If you want to refit with lead, we recommend B&B EB-50s. You'll need 4, and a few inter-connects to hook them up. It's a drop in replacement. You should get up to 30 mile range during the first few hundred cycles.

Glad that you got your lepton going again .
I do not know much about the e-power scooter , don"t see why the Nickel-Zinc packs would not work with it , did you take a look at the space in the e-power? is there enough room for the Evercels batteries ? .
I have no doubt that the Evercel pack will give you twice the energy you presently have in those SLA 26 A/H ( they are rated in the 20 Hours rate correct ?) .
Let me know when you want to get together !
Regards
Andre

P.S curious what is your occupation ? mine is electronic engineer .
