May get hot in the rear seat! H
I leave all the factory packing in place.
Foam is an insulator, so it also keeps heat from getting into the pack as well. Especially in hot climates.
You could instead do something else with additional cooling if you are really concerned about heat.
Well, I do plan on adding a 12 VDC fan. I am going to run some experiments concerning the foam, it just seems even in hot SC weather it would aid the cooling rather then the reverse. I won;t do anything without knowing though. I'm still waiting for the darn charger to get here and it is annoying me that something that was shipped over a week ago has yet to arrive.
Got the charger in the mail today and will get started tomorrow, Yayy!!!
You have made a great purchase. That charger is awesome. Really.
You can do charging, discharging, delayed start charging. Maintenance charge, soak charge.
And the logging capability is incredible, too.
Call me if you have questions.
Will do Eric and thank you for all the help.
Well, kind of stumped now. I have pairs of orange & green sticks in the pack and I can get the plastic parts that snap them together off, but the one end of all of the pairs has a bracket that is spot welded to the sticks??? So, I will research how to separate them more tomorrow.
Going to use my Dremel and small burr bits to get the sticks apart I will refrigerate them first to eliminate heat problems from the grinding.
Well, this is very disappointing , first eight sticks and NONE of them has good readings. I didn't even record the numbers, they are bad why bother? Guess I need to work on getting my money back if I can...
Do you have a known good stick to check? Just in case the charger is the issue and not the sticks. It's not unheard of for some of the low-cost chargers to be defective. They usually will send a replacement.
Only way I can really check the sticks is my digital multimeter or the charger, so not sure what to do at this point. It also took 10 days to get this charger from China.
Well, I have been running my regenerated battery pack for over 15K miles and I am already having the IMA warning light come on. The check engine light never went off, the code read out says that the software is not compatible with charge module A, same cde it has always had since the software upgrade by Honda back before July 2012. You know the one they said was supposed to fix the problems with forced regens. So, my next step is to refurbish the battery pack I took out and replaced, but I am going to match packs that are closely similar to ones that are in the replacement pack I am running not.
Did you do a 12V disconnect for 20 sec. Or so. Worth a try! H
Not as yet, but I will give it a try. Thank you for the tip Harold.
