I found a site that mentions that the EH5 (bolted) battery would have a capacity of 4.7Ah and EHW5 (welded) 5Ah.
I don't know how reliable this information is but it's interesting

On this other site there are comparative graphs between EH5 vs EHW5
It would seem that the soldering batteries are a bit better than the others.
Maybe just a lower resistance inter cells due to welding

wow mudder as soon as you mention that a battery is compatible with LIBCM it sells out in time
You should negotiate a price with battery hookup !
you are probably the best seller they have for some of their battery
:LOL:

I will probably convert one of my insights with your LIBCM but I am especially interested in the 47a samsung batteries which have been sold very recently.
As we don't know if it will be available soon, I wonder if with your current version of hardware, I could work with EHW5 batteries and later change to 47A batteries or will a different version be needed?
Maybe with resistors to equalize cells with a value lower than 75 ohm for larger batteries?

This file is the list of battery module affected by a recall, on my 5 battery that I received 3 where affected by the recall.

On this link they talk about battery LX86 but I think they reverse the two number .
The battery the described are the same size, they are 12S on 2.07kWh.
There is some picture of the battery and the plate where they are normaly fixed.
A describtion of the way there cooled by the plate.
The name of a Ford PHEV vehicule that use that battery (the Ford Kuga PHEV)

I ordered several samsung fomoco 47Ah batteries, one of them was damaged.
I contacted Batteryhookup and they sent me another battery to replace it.
I just noticed that the replacement battery I received last week is not the same model as the others.

The first ones I had were LX68-10C790-G-PIA-3AB
the last one I received is an LX68-10C767-F and it's written 49.5AH
Both batteries look identical, same number of cells, the only difference I noticed is the black plastic cover which is glossy and not textured.
I checked and it's the same circuit inside

Can I mix the two battery models and connect them in series ?
