Fenix Power Nissan LEAF Battery Replacement

Welcome to www.LEAF380.com

Hello & Welcome fellow LEAF owner,

My name is Sal Cameli and I own a 2013 Nissan LEAF.

My battery is heavily degraded, I can only drive around 28 to 40 miles
depending on how cold it is outside.

I have 79,765 miles and I have just lost my 6th battery bar on 09-18-2019.

I need a NEW battery but, I don't want to spend $8500 to $10,000 for another battery
from Nissan with the same old technology.

(Click the more-info tab above for some pricing
which has been posted on 01-07-2020)

I'm a Geek, Tech-Junkie, IT Consultant by trade. I like New Technologies and
that's why I bought the LEAF in the first place but I don't want a "NEW" battery
that has the same old technology. Especially not for 8 to 10 Grand!!!

So, I found this company named Fenix Power (pronounced "Phoenix") from North Carolina and they are building
a new battery for the LEAF with brand new cells similar to the ones Tesla uses.

The batteries will have an Active Thermal Mangement system and be backed by a warranty
that guarantees that if you drop a bar they will replace modules to get you back up to 100% range.

I am customer number 8 and there have been 650 people who reserved a place in line so far.
I've been told by the CEO of Fenix that their installs will begin in June 2020 for cash paying customers first.
After those customers are completed then rental customers will begin.

The reason I made this site is to give other LEAF owners information and to tell you I have some
discount codes that will save you money if you decide to reserve a place in line like I have.

The best thing for you to do is go to Fenix's website and read their FAQ and decide if the program is for you.

My discount codes are:
(They save you 25%)
There is also a CleanTechnica code that will save you something.
Try adding all 3 to your check-out.

P.S. I do not work for Fenix, I am just a customer who wants them to succeed.
When a new customer uses my codes I receive a free month of the battery service.
So, thank you very much for using my codes.

More content will be added to this site as I get more information and videos eventually when my
installation time comes.

Thanks & if you have any questions you can either join the facebook group I created for LEAF owners
who want to upgrade their batteries or you can email me below (or both).

By proving to the industry that a fixed and insanely huge auto-part is the completely wrong way to build a car.
Expecting people to accept that in 10 or so years, their car needs to replace a component that costs more than
the whole car is a broken business model. It's turning cars into a disposable item, like cell phones. Also,
the primary reason an EV is more expensive than an ICE competitive vehicle is the cost of the battery, the car
and the battery need to be divorced in that equation. People compare the battery pack to a gas tank,
which isn't the right analogy. With gasoline, the fuel is the storage medium for the energy, in an EV the battery
is the storage medium. So the battery is part of the fuel, and NOT the car.

We're all familiar with
the phrase "batteries not included" for nearly everything else electric and portable, so why are we accepting
cars where the batteries are so difficult and expensive to swap and service? Also, when you do decide to
replace the battery (pack), you only have one option, the automaker, you're captive in their locked-in ecosystem.

So we've spent the last 4 years trying to figure out how to divorce the battery from the car in a way that
makes sense. We came up with some core items that we need to address:

The battery has to be serviceable, so a 600+ lb "part" just won't work. So if you divide up the battery into
pieces, you have to make them reasonably human-manageable. And finally, if you're going to maintain the battery,
with today's technology, the management has to be intelligent and in each small chunk, not a single system in one huge component.

With those core needs, we developed a battery module that's flexible, intelligent, tracks its service history, is
safe to handle and can be swapped in your driveway with just a pair of car ramps and the tools most home-mechanics already
have. Each module is a self-contained system, BMS, voltage regulation, S/P switching, contactors, and health
status display. But it also includes technology parallel to how cell phone networks manage millions of devices, so it
can be remotely managed and trouble spotted before it becomes a larger problem.

In the LEAF, first we install a frame of sorts into the battery pack location, and within that frame the modules are
then installed. Over time, if a few cells degrade and begin to under-perform, you can swap the affected modules out
and keep the battery performing indefinitely.

Also, we're going to publish our battery module and management design as a set of license-able protocols for other
manufacturers. In the same way you can replace the AA batteries in your TV remote with any brand you choose, in a
few years you may opt for "Duracell" or "Panasonic" modules that work in the system rather than Fenix. (This is where
my background in cellular engineering and architecture separates us from other batteries, I'm intimately familiar with
how you build standardized systems that can accommodate dozens of manufacturers within the same ecosystem.)

But before we get there, we're applying this to where people need it the most in EV, aging LEAFs where the car is
still nearly new, and the battery is nearly useless. And to show how the modules work, we're building them first, then
inviting other manufacturers to join in, and hopefully do it even better than we will.
