My 2 year old board broke down after the last rain, and water got inside the battery pack. The total voltage read 24v in the end, down from 42v for the full normal. I’ve disassembled it later, there was quite a bit of corrosion. I disconnected the battery from the BMS. I’d like to repair and repackage the battery, I’m trying to figure out what to do next.
- The pack is glued pretty tightly together. How can I disassemble it safely?
- The battery was 10s3p made of inr18650-30q cells. Could a 13s BMS work with a 10s config, leaving a few wires unconnected?
- Some cells read 3v, others <1v. Are those usable?
- I have more new cells, can I combine them with used ones in the same pack?
I’d appreciate any tips and advice, thanks!
