**Things We Know and Things We Would Like to Know About the Smart ED Battery**

Pack = 17.6 Kwhr (marketing description)

Cells = 98 40Ahr LiNiMnCoO2 derivitive - Nominal voltage 3.6v (not confirmed)

Computed Pack Voltage (98 x 3.6) = 352.8

Computed Pack Capacity (98 x 3.6 x 40ahr) =14.112 kWhr.

Something is already wrong with these numbers because the pack capacity doesn't compute using the above numbers. Even using a voltage of 4.2 per cell only calculates to a 16.46 kWhr capacity.

Does anyone have a couple of sources that tell us how many cells are in the car?

Thanks to emcconnell we have the following document that talks about the cells in our car:

Or at least that is the current assumption. I will look for a more definitive source.
