Does somebody tried to make something like this? And for me most interesting to know how does the main computer of the car react to it or does just discharge/charge goes 2 times slower then before? Couse to make like this battery is wery easy couse I made before much of el. bicycle batteries.

There is a detailed discussion about doing this here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6522&start=250

I've temporarily made a 48V/1500W "power bank" which I can charge my car with via 110V EVSE to get an additional 4-5 miles in an emergency. It's only ~70% efficient (1.4 kWH from the power bank, 1.0 kWH to the Leaf battery).

This is the topic you want. Go to halfway down the page.

2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium and no QC, a 2009 Vectrix VX-1 W/18 Leaf modules, and 3 EZIP E-bicycles.
PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
