My '99 Force battery pack reached 29K miles, and I installed an
identical new pack (13 Deka 8G27s) with much-appreciated help from Ken Olum
& Co. Now I'm wondering if anyone wants to buy -- or has an idea how to
sell -- the used pack, 13 8G27s near the end of their life cycle but
seemingly in otherwise good condition, i.e. no bad ones in the pack. The
range had dropped to about 20 AH (18-25 depending) before going into
limp-home mode -- compared with 40+ at the start. So they have a bit of life
in them but are definitely well along in their golden years :-) They're
located halfway between Boston and Albany and would be expensive to ship (60
pounds each?), presumably not worth it, but fit in a car if you want to
I was thinking of asking $200 but input on that is also welcome.
BTW I bought the new ones from Mr. Solar in Baltimore for $2500
including drop-shipping to Massachusetts, and was happy dealing with them.
