Frequently asked questions?
What happens to the rejected battery packages of a (semi) electric car?
Previously these battery packs were destroyed with a recycling percentage of 30%, despite the lifespan or functionality. What EcarACCU does is to give these “good functional” batteries a second life. We disassemble and test the batteries and then use them for a new environmentally-friendly purpose. Through this, we achieve a stunning recycling percentage of 98%.
Are the refurbished cells directly useable in an installation such as solar energy storage for at home?
All of our refurbished cells do not yet have a working BMS system and the necessary power control systems. This can be developed through one of our partners or professionals. Above that, not all battery cells have the right voltage for certain applications, like solar storage for at home.
Do you offer batteries for e-bikes?
We do only offer refurbished lithium (Li-ion) batteries coming from electric and plug-in hybrid cars. These are not suitable for e-bikes or any of those applications.
Do you offer lead acid or gel batteries for automotive purposes?
We do not offer lead-acid batteries nor gel batteries. We offer a variety of refurbished lithium (Li-ion) batteries coming from electric and plug-in hybrid cars. Different than lead acid/gel batteries, these need additional programming and safety control systems to be operational.
Are the refurbished batteries available in different sizes and configurations?
Yes. EcarACCU offers different sizes, thicknesses, and configurations of battery packs. Some are classified per cell, and others are fused together. Because of this versatility, there will always be something that fits your wish.
What is the weight of one battery pack?
This depends on the size and type of chemistry. Most of what we offer is good for a number of kWh per module. With our rule of thumb, 1 kWh is approximately 11 kilos you can estimate the weight based on the desired number of Watt-hours.
