Yeah, something along those lines, but significantly cheaper!! And I really just want the battery, so if someone is doing a battery swap and looking to recoup some value from the old cells?
I'm under the impression that Nissan takes the old battery in a swap. I think any cells on the secondary market are from totaled cars.
You might actually have better look looking for Tesla modules or packs since the cars are a lot more common.
I was thinking more along the lines of this type of swap: https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=27600

Where it's handled by a third party who wouldn't benefit (or could be the source of) old EOL battery packs.

6 bar loser '14 at https://www.facebook.com/groups/4377412 ... 546125228/ in Florida. Don't know why they bought it. They said "I bought this 2014 Leaf in June, and have already lost 2 bars."

Perhaps it was also a reset victim? Seems way too fast to go from 8 to 6 bars between June and end of October. But, maybe it's possible if they were right on the edge of the 8th bar and they beat the hell out of the battery in Florida?

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

2013 with 72k miles in Portland, OR. Owned since new. Haven't lost any bars and would guestimate that the battery is about at 95%. Battery performance below freezing has gotten a bit worse.

I just lost my second capacity bar on my 2013 Nissan Leaf. Here are my stats:

MY13 (took delivery 10/13, manufactured 9/13)
Location: Northern Colorado
Date of loss: 10/15/2019
Mileage at loss: 83330
AHr: 51.34
SOH: 78.5%
Hx: 68.73%
L1/L2 charges: 4912
QC: 44

I try to leave my LEAF outside at night to cool off the battery during the summer. We moved to charging to 100% in the morning every weekday (just prior to departure) in the last few years to make up for capacity loss.
