I am still looking for 62kWh battery packs, but at this point I would probably buy a good 40 kWh. Finding these are much harder than I would have thought. I sold my 2012 Leaf SL. I bought 2 2013 Leafs with degraded batteries, hoping to upgrade to 62 kWh or at lest 40 kWh batteries. This is what I need to make a round trip into town from my rural location. Any help or leads would be much appreciated. Thanks Kevin
Sourcing these batteries is **really** hard, and typically expensive.
But then comes the question of installation. Who is going to do it ? Are you/they up to snuff on solving the compatibility issues ?
As an aside, one person has posted in the forum of upgrading to a 62 kWh pack. He seems quite pleased but has noted that the OEM suspension is not really up to the task of the having the heaviest battery.
