A university near Houston TX purchased a salvaged pack

Tue Feb 12, 2019 7:08 pm

I just purchased a low mileage onboard chargerr from a Texas salvage yard, and in friendly negotiations with the counter man, he mentioned he had sold the battery pack to a college near Houston. Probably for cells to use in a Formula E project or such, but that could be a source of interesting research papers. Anybody got a clue where it might have gone?
