    Ran across these today and couldn't resist the temptation. Wife is going to be pissed......one has modules dated 1/31/2016 and one has modules dated 4/9/2016. Both read 215.0 vdc when I installed a safety disconnect to check them.

    What a find! You must be looking in all the right places :)
    Some flowers might be in order...
    Got any plans for them?

    I have been contemplating this for a few days now. Original intent was to use the modules to build two killer Gen 2 packs and make them available to the masses for purchase. Then I was thinking (here we go again) there may very well be 2010-2011 owners out there that bought used and are no longer under warranty. Certainly some of them may need a new battery, but fear the dealership pricing. And of course, there's always my peeps (the Gen2 crowd). Certainly some of them would love to get their hands on a new, unused factory OEM HV battery to use the modules to rebuild their own packs. Shoot, I like just taking the top off the shipping package to look how pretty they are. Virgin, with a capital V. Although these HV battery CASES and wiring are specifically for the 2010-2011, the modules could be used for a direct swap on any Gen2 or Gen3. The wiring harnesses may even be compatible with all Gen3, but I'm not sure. I guess I could compare them to ones I have from previous disassembled batteries. Anyone have input on that?

    I think I'll be putting one or both into the "for sale" section soon.

    Is this your way of not saying that you were correct, the wife was pissed? :D

    Either these packs go or you go!
