Electric Vehicle Battery Swaps
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar
Our around town electric vehicle received a replacement pair desulfated 12V batteries today. The GEM vehicles are notorious for chewing through Interstate batteries. Each Interstate battery exhibits the same problem after a few months of use. A single cell dies while the others are fine. I've contacted Interstate about the issue only to find out they were already well versed in the battery failures caused by GEM vehicles. Unfortunately for me my local auto and boat stores primarily sell Interstate batteries. When I make my rounds collecting dead batteries the most common brand is Interstate.
