Electric cars with old batteries may soon be rejuvenated and regain up to 50 percent of their range with a new solution from Vanderbilt University. The team has come up with a battery management that addresses each cell via single controllers.
The module can thus be reconfigured so that all cells run out of energy at the same time rather than weaker ones slowing the others down uncontrollably. The model used an open source Tesla battery and the team is working with Vanderbilt to get their device to market asap.
