    +jehugarcia Where did you originally find the entire tesla battery pack? Did you happen to find it on ebay, or did you get it somewhere else? I work at an aerospace company and we are looking to do something similar and re-purpose the modules if we can get ahold of a full pack. Thanks

    So guys, I commend you on you ingenuity, and recycling abilities. However, I'm curious how you can charge more for used material, than one can buy new. Just one of those power packs is over $1300, and only 232aH. Someone would have to be a moron to fall for those prices. Especially for reclaimed battery packs . . .

    This is really not how it's done. This pack is a 1.5 model and you should always, always test the isolation resistance once the fuse is removed. This should be above 3500kΩ. Opening the top cover wrong without proper protection. What was the state of charge of this pack? I'm not trying yo be a wiseguy here but you show this on Youtube. Others could get serious hurt if they do it like this.

    Wouldn't it be much cheaper and easier to just buy the individual Panasonic rechargeable cells that make up a "Tesla battery" Those "modules" are just full of little rechargeable batteries by the hundreds. Thousands in the entire "battery" itself. Another dirty little secret that destroys the "high-tech" mythology of Tesla.

  • Stephane Cnockaert
    Stephane Cnockaert 3 months ago

    schematic please?
    86p * 6s * 16 racks in series = a total of 8,256 Panasonic 18650 Li-Ion cells (384 volt)

    why welding each 18650 cell using a fusible wire?
    -> implementing auto-balancing thanks to the suicide of any deviant cell
    -> a suicide is barely impacting the overall energy (loss is only 1/86 = 1.2 %)

    internally protected or unprotected Panasonic 18650 cells?
    -> protected cells provide a protection against internal over-pressure

    voltage monitoring?
    each of the 16 racks embeds a 6-stage voltage monitoring (zerovoltwire + 6 wires)
    -> all 86p groups are individually voltage-monitoring
    -> this enables locating the faulty rack
    -> this enables locating the 86p group that's faulty within a rack
    -> repairing gets easy (replace the whole 86p group, extract the cells, dump the bad cells, recycle the good cells)

    charge balance?
    discharge balance?
    actually, there is no balancing device
    diverting some charging current would develop heat, that would require liquid cooling

    up to you to consider what a Tesla battery is, and what Tesla is, as company:
    - spark of genius simplicity
    - or bloated lo-tech stuff presented as
    - pseudo hi-tech, purposedly incinerating huge amounts of cash
    - the producer of the 18650 cells is Panasonic
    - the chemical research is done by Panasonic
    - Tesla only provides a solid working environment that's relying on low cost energy (solar panels, wind turbines)
    - Tesla may establish as a leading battery pack assembling company

    as a footnote:
    - assembling Li-Ion battery packs for more than one car maker brand requires a lot of customization (size, shape)
    - any Tesla competitor can do the same overnight:
    - using LG 18650 Li-Ion cells,
    - in a 100% robotized hall (almost no wages cost),
    - located near waterfalls (hydro electricity).
    - most battery packs will be 10 kWh to 20 kWh battery packs for plugin rechargeable hybrid cars

    each time Li-Ion chemistry makes a progress:
    - the cell generates less heat
    - the cell develops less internal pressure
    - the cell stores more energy per kilo, more energy per liter, more energy per dollar
    - one will produce 21700 cells providing at least the energy of two 18650 cell, exhibiting the same safety as a 18650 cell
    -> a 100 kWh battery will consist of 32p * 6s * 16 racks in series = a total of 3072 Li-Ion cells (384 volt, max 1000 amp)
    -> a 17 kWh battery will consist of 16p * 6s * 6 racks in series = a total of 576 Li-Ion cells (144 volt, max 500 amp)

    An simple and inexpensive plugin rechargeable hybrid car can be made using:
    - a 100 kW thermal engine, followed by
    - an isolation clutch, followed by
    - a 70 kW electric motor (acting also as electric generator), followed by
    - a hydraulic converter (having a lock-up clutch)
    - Panasonic or LG 21700 cells
    - two 16p * 6s battery racks under the front seats
    - two 16p * 6s battery racks under the rear seats
    - two 16p * 6s battery racks under the trunk
    - total battery energy : 17 kWh
    - total car power : 170 kW

    Please note, on the 17 kWh battery, the suicide of a 21700 cell will cause a 1/16 = 6.3 % loss of energy.
    It is thus advised to test and measure each individual 21700 cell, before assembling it for building the 16p group.

    Up to you to find a suitable donor car.
    After removing the transmission (gearbox), plenty of space should be available for mounting the isolation clutch, the 70 kW electric machine, and the hydraulic converter (having a lock-up clutch).
    A front-drive car would be advantageous, as it will allow regenerative braking on the front wheels.

      Or you can buy a 19.2kwh 48 volt with BMS lithium battery from China for less than $2188.00 dollars.  They make battery packs that work very well and are brand new.  You would have to buy 4 Tesla modules to make 21.2kwh at a price of $5,499.00 dollars and I am not counting all the work you would have to do to make this work.  In my opinion, the Tesla batteries are overpriced.

  • Dogphlap

    Tesla 18650 cells are unlike other 18650 cells in as much as all the protective circuitry is missing, that is provided externally to the cells by Tesla's battery management. Just using those cells without protection is asking for a fire, a situation exacerbated by the lack of thermal management.

    • Dogphlap
      Dogphlap 4 months ago

      That is an interesting point. I don't really know whether the device is an over pressure switch or a thermistor, short of opening a cell and checking for myself I may never know but what I do know is that such a thermistors never has zero resistance (no matter how cold it is) and will have a non trivial resistance at anything like a high current making such a cell useless for high current applications or ones where a terminal voltage is required to stay moderately stable under varying loads.
      Anyway your point does not in anyway change my point which was that a typical 18650 cell has safety devices within it while those found in Tesla battery packs do not (not to imply the cells are dangerous just so long as the external to the cells precautions that Tesla provides are not abandoned).

      +Dogphlap I would not call this things "circuitry" but rather mechanical safety features. I am aware of the claim that they are missing on tesla cells but like everything, having not seen it with my own eyes I don't fully believe it.

    • Dogphlap

      "What kind of battery does TESLA use?
      Tesla uses 18650 batteries but has modified them. They have taken out
      the PTC and CID protection circuitry and made them truly bare-bones."

      PTC stands for Pressure Temperature Current switch.
      CID stands for Current Interrupt Device.

    • Spencer
      Spencer 4 months ago

      True, however keep in mind that the main contactors are no longer powered, splitting the pack voltage in half once already down to around 200VDC. Additionally its important to maintain dexterity with your hands so you don't drop your tools/bolts, and thick rubber gloves make that very difficult.

      Legacy. And in the automotive world they are not 3/8". They are 9.5mm. On any drawing from any auto manufacturer they will show up as 9.5mm not as 3/8".

    Do you need to worry about keeping them cool when you put them in other vehicles? If so, how do you do it?

    • jehugarcia
      jehugarcia 4 months ago

      +cerr00 you could run liquid through them, but no, Tesla puts 400kW load on them that's why they need to cool them we do 140kW peak so they'll never get hot

      well, what i meant is that saying how this fuse has an overall 441 kw rating is CRAZY - just felt like you left off a bit, though it could be assumed.

    when is someone going to build a car/kit frame around this battery so that you can custom build a car/kit. That would be really cool.

      I was looking at a Tesla cars counter today, and I refreshed the page to see how much new cars would be added 10 minutes later... surprise ! the counter shows me a lower number... one less Tesla !
      I suppose they have a database with all write offs ?

    So 15 modules at $1300 each is approx $20k. Wowzers

  • luckym0nk3y
    luckym0nk3y 5 months ago

    so... what about modular repair? if you crack a module, Will they fix the complete battery?

    • jehugarcia
      jehugarcia 4 months ago

      it doesn't matter, it is what it is, failing modules are probably rare and you are talking about a $50K battery, 2 days is well worth on the most expensive part of the car.

    • luckym0nk3y
      luckym0nk3y 4 months ago

      but that's super inefficient!

    • Tai Mai Shu
      Tai Mai Shu 4 months ago

      luckym0nk3y If you need a module replacement you're most likely get a loaner battery. In order to replace a module you'll need to open the battery like these guys. Then you need to reseal and run a test. The test alone is about 2 hrs.

    • luckym0nk3y
      luckym0nk3y 4 months ago

      let's say Tesla takes about 2 hours to replace 1 module. (I think it's more like 30 min.) my question still is.... how? not saying jehu and the team took too long to do it but if it takes Tesla 2 hours, I just want to know how. I think I heard something that you'll have youre car back in 4 hours. that's driving your car in the shop, taking the bad module out, installing the new module and driving out of the shop.

    • Tai Mai Shu
      Tai Mai Shu 4 months ago

      luckym0nk3y Will take more time to repair. These guys are only taking it off but doesn't have to put it back. ☺

  • TheSecondFunnyKing

    Since the pack was pretty packed with modules, was that a 100kWh battery pack?

    • Tai Mai Shu
      Tai Mai Shu 4 months ago

      TheSecondFunnyKing Same amount of modules but more density.

    • TheSecondFunnyKing
      TheSecondFunnyKing 5 months ago

      Ah I see. With the newer chemistry processing they use since Feb 2016, this battery would be the 90kWh edition. So probably 2 more new 5,6kWh modules in the 100D ...
