@PeterPerkins, I own a Honda Fit Gp1 Hybrid, which has a similar CRZ NimH battery pack. As per your guidance I tried balancing charging for 24hrs, but my batteries were too lazy and was back to 23% within a month. Decide to follow your 2nd step by discharging and cycling, a quick concern regarding the discharge, I will be using 240v 60w bulb, should i leave it connected until the voltage drops to 0v in the pack? or just until the light glow off. pls help. Thanks for all your support.

When the bulb goes out will be low enough for the first discharge, but if you do two cycles then leave it for a few hours after the bulb goes out on the second time.
It's not critical either way.

That info is in this thread. ;)

But you need a combined voltage of about 130-160V capability.
So two x 65V ones in series or one x 130V etc etc

The LED drivers must be the constant current type with a maximum current output of 350ma or less.

Sorry, I should of asked more specifically...these seem to have a range of dc out voltage, is this saying the dc out voltage varies depends on ac in? So this driver puts out 36v dc with 100v ac, so at 110v this would only output about 38v dc? Thanks for the help with my confusion.

Okay, thanks I ordered two of those. I was just assuming that the DC output would only be 132v dc in series if you were feeding it 240v. Under that assumption feeding it 120v in the US would barely be pushing maybe 70v dc.

I found a single LED driver with a voltage range that appears suitable for the UK.
Circuit component Electronic component Electronic engineering Cable Electrical wiring


Its a tiny PCB and seemed to put out the right voltage in my bench tests but would likely need some cooling for the claimed wattage.....

The pack got to about 118v, when I connect a 60w 130v light to it nothing happens. If I put a CFL bulb in it then it just kind of does a continuous fast flash. Maybe the alligator clip wires can't handle the current or am I missing something here?

You must use a standard 60w incandescent bulb not a CFL.
Your bulb must be blown then or you have a bad connection in your wires.
I wasn't using the right connections. I used the right side front 2 Phillips head screws to charge, which seemed to work, but you can't connect a bulb using that setup. I realized you pulled the negative off of the connection further back on the right side of the battery pack. I attached my negative to that post and the light lit right up. Thanks.

Please post a pic of exactly where you wrongly connected.
I hope you have not damaged anything.
I had charged it with these two Phillips headed screws that sit just to the right of the Panasonic label I think it is, my meter was showing a complete circuit of 104v before charge and 118v afterwards.
