Eli - I have a 2000 insight and have a battery pack with a bad stick (maybe two). The pack is a Honda replacement with about 30K miles on it. Do you know if individual sticks are available? thanks, Rich
Hi Eli. Have you given any thought to selling just the sticks. There is a local lady who wants me to recondition her battery but I have told her that I am losing confidence in the red sticks. I could sell her my good yellow stick battery but that leaves me with a red one.

I posted a thread on IC. And I was referred to you by TopFuelTim. I was interested in purchasing either used cell packs or new cell packs to replace the worn out cell packs that I currently have. I am in the middle of charging and discharging the packs as we type. But, please let me know I am just trying to cover my basis.
Eli, my name is Kevin and I am a fairly new member here on IC. I am having a problem with my 2003 m/t car. After doing all the maintainence to my car after buying it in Feb. , I also bought a refurbished battery pack from Hybrid- Revolt. After only a couple of months, I started receiving positive and negative recals, eventually resulting in an ima and cel with p1447. Matt at HR sent me an upgraded pack and it lasted about a month and half before doing the same things, except this time I got a p1568. I'm thinking it is a bad bcm or ? After consulting with Jeff, he recommended I get with you. Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Kevin.
I got a 2003 Civic hybrid dumped on me and on initial inspection it looks like it has several bad cells and other cells are poor. Normally I would give him an exchange pack but I don't think his pack is in very good shape and I don't really want it in trade. Of course price is important to him as to everyone but, well, he's 20 years old and it is a rough 2003 Civic with many problems (he got it for $1600).
He won't be able to buy a set of your batteries but maybe I could swap sticks from one of my Insights and trade up myself. So...... Are you selling individual sticks (20) yet? If you are and have a price, don't include shipping. I can look at that.
I am posting this to let anyone who is interested in reviving an insight battery in their first gen insight to send me an email and I van explain my approach in more detail. If you have had a IMA battery light with codes 1447 I think I can help you get your battery back to functioning properly... I am in the Portland Oregon area.
