It's one thing to be bricked by the battery during the day on a dry test track; and quite another to be stuck at night on a highway in the middle of a rainstorm.

Just sayin' . . .
Most Karma Dealership will only replace the complete battery most of the dealers donít have any idea how to replace one module and be able to balance the module before itís installed . Iím not even sure if Karma sells just a module . Also the batteries they are selling is also old stock .

Myself and Joe can take credit when it comes to module replacements and buying the equipment to do it correctly. I was taught how to service the hv battery when Fisker closed its door and passed that information over to Joe and that was late 2013 .
