Mercedes EV that runs on AA batteries

Recommended Posts

may be that way it would be cheaper as not all the batteries die at once you can just check which ones are bad and change those only

Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t the Tesla cars just run on a load of 51650s linked together, which is basically a glorified AA? If you’re using your head, you should be able to find the bad cells and solder new ones in. 

I have a 1/2” battery impact wrench. Stopped working. A replacement battery pack was 400dhs and 3 week wait from the uk. I took it apart and tested it. Ended up soldering in 2 51650s from a dragon mart vape and it was good as new. 

Cant wait until these cars are classed as “old” and I can have a play around. No carbs, no EFI, no fuel pumps, no ignition systems. Just a battery, a motor and a fancy tablet screen, maybe a set of brushes or an armature here and there. It all seems very simple and blown out of proportion due to lack of parts and wide scale training.

Yeah pretty much and they make such a big deal out of Tesla, probably uses more batteries than show in the parody too!
