OK folks, after a lot of consideration, and a desire to have 100kwh of battery in the truck, I have come to the conclusion that the Volt packs won't cut it, mostly for form factor reasons. They are a PITA to make fit in the space allotted and cooling is also complicated. Therefor, I am contemplating using Lifepo4, 100Ah cells to make the pack. I can do it and it is a lot of cells but the price is right and they are tested cells. No cooling needed. 112S3P seems to work. Am I crazy. Standard charge/discharge current is 1/3C
