Hey all - had a few free minutes today and was reading the forum (specifically the "most mile on the battery pack" thread) and started considering the inevitable death of the IMA pack. :(

Got to searching around the internet and found:
http://batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageA ... ProdID=709

Basically – 1.2V NIMH battery, 10000mAh, with solder tabs - $4.51 ea in quantity of 100+

So it seems at though 120 of those would come in at under $550 and give about a 35% boost in battery capacity. Has anybody actually rebuilt their own battery pack? Also what do you think the cars computer would think about the extra capacity? It seems to me that if the ECU is looking mainly at volts you might be able to get away with it.?
