    Hi I have a 4Kw enginer plug in kit fitted in my gen3, I fitted it 5 years ago. I want to sell it, because I am thinking of having a gen 4. The kit is still working but batteries nead attention they only take 1.5 Kw charge. I live in Birmingham UK.
    Any advice would be most welcome

    Have you investigated the Prolong Battery Charger and Discharger? It's possible that they might advise that their system would work equally well on your higher-capacity set-up (assuming it's NiMh and same operating voltage).

    Thanks for reply Indy John, But I am just interested in selling, I thought there may have been other UK members that could have given me advice, I also forgot to say it was a Gen 2 kit that I adapted to fit Gen 3.

    Post in private sales.

    The Enginer kit is an orphaned product without any support from the company. I would suspect that one of the cells is bad and limits the capacity.

    Most buyers will not place any extra value on the Engineer system.
    Some potential buyers may see the kit as a negative, rather than a positive.
    It may make sense to have it removed.
