Upgraded HV Pack to a 10ea 15ah Pb/acid pack, paralleled onto a 15ah LiFePO4 pack of Tenergy Cylindrical cells. The Pb/Acid pack, acts like a BMS for the charge protection of the LiFePO4 cells. Lower cost than having to purchase higher ah, lithium pack w/active bms.

My commute is only 2.5 miles one way, I charge at work, so I chose a small hybrid battery pack to experiment with, which also helped with keeping the convertible looking less like a rolling barge, about to sink into the water.
