Is a leaf cell extender pack possible

Fri Apr 23, 2021 11:11 am

Can nissan leaf 7.5 volt cells be used to add a extender pack to a 2012 Leaf?

Is it safe to assume a extender pack in the back needs to be the same voltage as the main pack?
The 48 cells in the main pack are all in series . 48 cells x 7.5v = 360 pack nominal voltage. And I dont want to take up that much space or add that much weight.

What batteries are commonly being used to build extender packs?

Such a pack has been offered, although I don't think it used Leaf cells. You really would be better off looking into having a used 30 or 40 kwh pack from a newer Leaf installed. Where (city or region) do you live?

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

If you live anywhere near the Netherlands, then MUXSAN would be the clear choice:


In North America though, I don't think anyone is building and selling extender packs. The founder of MUXSAN has stated before that offering that kind of service in the US is a non-starter, for legal liability reasons.
