Where can I find a Tesla V2 1500wh battery pack?

So I've been browsing the internet, trying to find the custom battery pack for the Tesla V2. I already ordered it, and I'm wanting to use the 1020wh until it starts to die off a bit from use. Whenever I find a trace of anything for it, I find the battery pack but it's always attatched to the wheel in the deal. I just want the 2 battery packs. Anyone know where I can find them?

That won't happen so quickly.

A bit of (very rough) math:

  • Not sure how well our battery cells age, but 5 year (minimum) lifespan shouldn't be an issue.
  • The Tesla's range is about 40km with 1020Wh. You might notice a capacity loss after.... 200 charge cycles? 500? One charge cycle corresponds to charging and using the battery from 0% to 100% and back,  so that would make 200*40km = 8000km range or 500*40km = 20000km range.

People have wheels with 25000km and more on them.

So when you get there, there will be much more modern and nicer and better and shinier wheels. You'll want one of those instead of upgrading the battery of your then old, outdated, banged up Tesla.

The battery will probably the last thing to die off on your Tesla.

Now if you just want to upgrade to more capacity regardless of your old battery's state, I'd contact the Ali seller who sells the 1480Wh Tesla and ask him to sell you just the two battery packs. Sellers only list some standard things, but often have other things (even entire wheels) available when you ask.

The upgrade is a bit involved (cutting away some small stringers in the shell to fit the bigger packs) and I would guess it is not at all cost-effective.

Usually, replacing a battery is not worth it, and buying a brand new wheel (and possibly selling the old one) is much better. You get a newer wheel for the same price, essentially.

I went to the ali website, I can't even find the tesla on there. Thank you though!

Who sells the 1480Wh/1500Wh Tesla? I only knew that one (some?) Ali sellers have it (it's not an official model). And if you contact such a seller and tell him you'd like to buy just the batteries, there should be a good chance he is receptive to that.

Maybe I'm totally outdated there who sells it and what is going on, sorry:whistling:I can find only regular Teslas there.

Loomo and Wheel Riders Store used to sell it.
It stopped being 1480Wh and became 1500Wh.
It stopped being some random Tesla cell and became LG M50T cells.

However... can't be purchased at the moment.
Besides the battery packs you will need a BMS and a ton of cables and patience.

After Begode watched this upgrade from 1020wh to 1480, they have produced an official model of 1500wh. From what I understand it’s available late November/December.

The 1020 model is a wonderful commuter travel / train wheel at 42lbs.
