The only setup so far that provides 40kwh of usable capacity to a formerly 24kwh Leaf is one that uses ALL of the battery-related electronics from the 40kwh car. That's my understanding, anyway.
What is involved in getting 24 kWh of usable capacity from a donor 40 kWh pack used in a 24 kWh LEAF ?
Alternatively, same question using a donor 30 kWh pack. I think I am hearing that the electronic guts of the 24 kWh pack replace those present in the 30 kWh pack and then the hybrid 30 kWh pack is installed in the 24 kWh LEAF. Is this anywhere near correct ?
Your earlier post makes it sound like 40 kWh pack donors into 30 kWh LEAFs is an easier path.
