I took the gamble on purchasing a dead Lift battery which I am hoping to partially salvage for my efoil build. It is reading 0 volts and would not charge for the prior owner. I am hoping to find some usable cells and just a dead BMS and/or a string or two of bad cells. Worst case scenario, if it is full of salt water inside I have a solid paper weight and might be able to reuse some parts for a new battery build. I have my battery welder at the ready if that’s the case.
I have extensive experience with batteries of all types (including much higher voltages and ah) so I will be as safe as possible in this endeavor and try not to let the magic smoke out. My plan is to take it outside carefully use a dremel diamond cutoff wheel around the seam where it was glued together.
There isn’t much info I can find online and it is a little scary going in totally blind.
- Anyone opened one of these before?
- Does anyone know of any pictures or schematics of the inside so I can see where I need to be extra careful?
