With the assistance of the collective knowledge here, as well as some 'hand holding' from XVectrix, my 2009 VX-1 is now sporting 18 leaf cells. Too early to tell range and what not (only got this completed 3 hours ago), but a quick ride was more than satisfactory.
- VectrixSupport.com (XVectrix) well worth the change if you're nervous like me and want to talk it out with THE expert (hey he designed the thing).
- Make sure you have everything you need downloaded before you start
That all said,
I have a NiMH pack (both 1/2's) available, as well as a set of plenum fans. The pack was what I would consider moderately good condition (according to the Laird's firmware I could charge within 3 - 4 bars of max. ) Before it goes to recycling, I'll offer it up to the group. You can have it (yes free), but you have to pick it up. I'm not shipping, packing, etc. Pack is located in my friends warehouse in Lititz, PA (outside Lancaster). So, if you want to play with a NiMH pack, PM me.
