I’m about to buy several Tesla model S modules from an 85kwh battery. The seller is a breaker. I am going to pick them up in person and would like to do some me basic tests before paying for them.

I have extensive practical and theoretical knowledge of electronics, but no EV experience and haven’t worked withTesla batteries before.

I’ll visit ally inspect them, but I’m guessing a full discharge-charge cycle might be too much to ask the seller to go thru.

The seller seems reputable and is known on this forum.

I just don’t want to end up with a dud module, even inadvertently.

Give them a good visual inspection and then measure the module voltage (nominal ~23V). If that looks good then if possible look at the wreck for fire damage and the documents for mileage. If all looks good then I'd say you're fine to proceed :)
