Need Replacement Cells? I'm breaking up my pack and selling full trays
Breaking up my Vectrix's NiMh pack, selling full trays on eBay. I bought my Vectrix new, and rode it for 1.5 years/2,600 miles before I replaced it with the LiFePO4 pack that was in my VW Bus. You may have seen that posted here, and on endless-sphere. I swapped out the pack because post-charge temps went from 26c to 33c rather suddenly, so I figure at least one bad cell, I just don't know where it is. Well, that and I had the spare LiFePO4 going to waste. I have promised trays to a few people, but the remainder of the pack is going up on FeeBay, er eBay. I've tried to attach a picture of the first tray, I haven't attached pics here before hope I did it right.
My wife does the shipping for me, but will only ship to the US due to the paperwork involved.
Thats great news :D
do you have a discharge tester like a west mountain radio CBA?
If you do, I would test the trays to weed out marginal cells
I normally charge at 1A until either the cells get warm, or 30Hrs has gone by, then do a discharge run at 6A
sometimes I discharge a bit faster at first (~12A) using an additional load and Ah counter, but thats mainly to remove self discharge from the equation.
Seriously considering this as the range on my bike at 6K is just starting to teeter on the verge of being too low for my needs. Just have to decide between performing The Laird's charger program mod or getting the spare cells...

In my opinion, the Lairds firmware is the easiest way... for me it works fine, I've recovered from 24 Ah to 29 Ah. The dissappearing bar syndrome has entirely gone!
Don't know if these are yours.
However as a quick bump on this forum
I found these today whilst on the looky for vectrix bits
Wow, I sold 8 modules to him so he could fix his Vectrix (which he probably did) and now is selling the leftovers for 3x more than I sold it. Oh well, I helped to keep one more Vectrix on the road...
(and no - I do not have any modules at this point, sold to 3 other owners to keep theirs on the road as well)
maybe in future again...
