I assume that 7kEuro pack is a 24 kWh
No... a brand new 40kWh.

https://renovablesdelsur.com had a stock of brand new batteries (leaf and env200) from the dismissed nissan plant in Barcelona. Probably already out of stock now, but better ask directly

So not a very good data point then. 40 kWh battery packs tend to be >> $10k (salvage or not).

Here is a way to improve that air cooling. Mount the battery on the roof.

I think the hump goes in the back. For, you know, better aerodynamics.

Also great if you want to have four mini spare tires.

Clearly a fake, the HV cable is not connected ;-)

Also, I don't see how it could be safe. Imagine all that weight up top when cornering, and in an accident...

Roof-rack limits are often of the order of 100-200lb, are they not?

Probably someone bought a used pack and was carrying it home.

So now that I've posted my uninformed opinion, I thought it was time to watch the actual video :oops:

It's not as it seems; he does explain the "clickbait" by the end of the video. I won't spoil the suspense :o

Interestingly, with the new LeafSpy Pro battery pairing facility that he was beta testing, no CANbridge is actually required! [ Edit: but see Mux's replay next message, over the page. ] The new BMS takes over, and understands the new battery. Some strange things happen however, such as the estimated range (guess-o-meter) alternating between current and maximum range. The same thing happens on some Leafspy pages. I'm not certain that I believe that the two figures are current and maximum estimates; perhaps more details will emerge later. The URL below cuts to the part showing the alternating range estimates (then press play or whatever to watch normally):

https://youtube.com/embed/bgBB0L3i_Bg?start=363&end=369

The ability to charge to 80% is also gone, (or at least it stops working), as the support for this is apparently in the BMS, which gets swapped out along with the battery. So the CAN bridge can be used just for that feature.
