    I am in the process of installing Gen 4 cells from a wrecked 2016 into a gen 2.

    I will update with photos soon. IMG_0676.JPG IMG_0677.JPG IMG_0678.JPG IMG_0679.JPG IMG_0680.JPG IMG_0681.JPG IMG_0682.JPG IMG_0683.JPG IMG_0684.JPG IMG_0686.JPG IMG_0685.JPG IMG_0688.JPG IMG_0689.JPG

    I hope it was the base Two, as the other models are Li-Ion and the charger will not be right, as it expects NiMH, like the Two has.

    Li-ion has a history of catching fire if the charger over charges.

    They look almost identical except the top. The last two pictures show an older cell from a 2005 in front of the new ones.

    Yes, this is NiMh. The first one I ordered was Li-ion. I returned that one. It was very light and easier to handle.

    Awesome as usual Todd.

    Working on it on a metal table top scares me though. Be careful bro.

    The battery works perfectly. Consistent voltage and internal resistance is even across all blocks.

    Do the new modules have the same clips for the temp sensors?

    Yes, both.in the 2016 the temp sensors attach on the top but they have the ability to clip in on the bottom for use on the gen 2.
