My battery (made up of Fluence modules, same as the Mk1 leaf) builds up that sweet smell in the car if it's been sat for a while (weeks) not used. Once the car is vented for a few minutes it clears. I also noticed the smell quite strongly when I first cracked open the original battery casing from the fluence.

I've also had others report the same smell when opening up both fluence and low mileage salvage leaf packs of the Mk2 module type.

My modules have no damage or any signs of leakage or deteriation at all and still perform perfectly 3 years on... The smell no longer worries me, I think it's actually the smell of electrolyte permeating the materials enclosing the cell somehow. :confused:
