The Tesla Roadster now has a 3rd party mod that allows Chademo charging. Of interest here is that he is feeding directly into the hv battery via the regen circuitry and not thru the charger (which would require Elon's digital ok). In fact they discovered how to do this when they were pushing the Roadster one day and found out they were actually charging it too.

Finally reached PAC, Inc on Bainbridge Island. The EV guy was out today but they can drop hv batt and massage back to life etc. They have not worked on a Smart_EV to date but of course understand the process should be similar to jobs they have already done before.

I have 2015 Smart_EV and will try to have them do the work.

MBenz advises today that replacement hv batt is currently not avail from Euro or N.America either for the time being.

Estimate by PAC is $2-3k for 3 days work. I'm guessing the high end due to slooowness of the initial charging of each cell that is required will take a lot of time and go beyond 3 days.
