... Wat has been plan b?
Or has this been the ting to throw the towel?
I share the original idea about replacing only the energy storage. There are only few parameters involved... That have to match or be adapted by tweaking mechanic or electronic
- V out
- V in for charging
- A out, max and constant
- A in, max and constant
- temp under different conditions
- possibly the cover to place the thermostat elements to monitor C'
If there is a cell, matching this parameters, why shouldn't it be replaceable?
If this cell has more capacity, to the existing electronic, is will just look like a really old cell while charging (it takes longer!) and like a new one while draining (again, because it takes longer)
