    LG chem disassembly

    Hey Elmoto,

    I'm looking into LG Chem modules from tech direct. $400 shipped 64v, 43ah. They look to me that they are similar to Leaf modules and are in a 2s2p configuration. Also, each of the modules look to be self contained (also like a lead module).
    Does anyone have any experience with these modules rearranging the modules to change the ah capacity by paralleling?

    Thanks!

    Nic

    I was thinking they were in 2s2p like leaf modules but I guess they have 43ah cells in this setup.
    Each section looks like it is housed in a plastic cell. If there are bolted terminals on each cell, I'm looking to disassemble the module, rearrange in a 8s2p configuration for a small aprila 50cc scooter I'm converting for a friend.

    In the picture I see 8 individual compartments so that's why I thought they'd already be in a 2s2p cell configuration to get ~64vdc.

    They're welded tabs, so hard to get into another form factor without significant work. One tab on each end, so there are welds on both sides.

    Read up here, where I asked the question:

    I bought one, just to have as a bench test unit and to see how much work it'd take parallel them.
    I'll update after the 18th when its scheduled to arrive.
