EV Conversion with reconditioned battery

If you are planning to start your own Do It Yourself (DIY) electric car conversion project at home, it is always wise to have a budget. You want to know how much money you need to get all the parts required.

Apart from the electric motor, the other major cost of the overall project is the batteries. An average homemade electric vehicle will require 10 to 15 units of deep cycle batteries. If you were to buy all new battery, the cost will be very high it that will defeat the purpose of a DIY electric car.

To save cost, you can reuse dead batteries. How to you recondition a dead battery? There are many ways to do so. Part of the reasons why the battery is dead is because it has lost all the electric charge. There is a process where you can recharge the battery but you have to run through a few steps to check the condition of the battery.

An electric car does offer a lot of benefits compared to a gasoline driven vehicle. If you have the budget, you can buy a brand new one from the dealership. Unfortunately, without economy of scale, a new EV is still relatively expensive and many people are not ready to make the investment. The best alternative right now to retrofit our existing car to run on electricity.
