I have an old scooter project gathering dust in my warehouse which never really got used enough by my son. It’s a Razor300 with a 36v nominal (42v fully charged) lifepo4 battery pack. As you can see from the pictures it’s on a rectangular pack, but I’m toying with the idea of breaking it apart, and arranging the cells to fit in a custom esk8 enclosure.
The cells and pack are all in fine condition, and I’m wondering on the pros and cons of doing this. Clearly the major pro is that it’s free (in effect) but what are the cons? Would I be wasting my time doing this, and if not, could I use my spare focboxs with it?
Shoot it down as a terrible idea if so, or tell me to have a go if not… I’m interested in your thoughts
