Lanny Thomason of Eugene Oregon, South Town Lanes Bowling Alley, did a superb job of replacing my 12 year-old original battery pack with NiMH for a mere $6,000! These are not refurbished, but are barely used / reclaimed from out of a Ford Ranger EV with ~15k mileage on the pack. Although sadly, this may be the last of its kind. But hopefully, the latest, new battery-type composed of a combination of both NiMH plus LiFePo4 will be able to replace our dying breed of NiMH.
