These are the standard 24V 8Ah Nicd packs manufactured by Sanforce which recently have been reported to have cells explode.
The damage is so extensive i can't tell if the cell blew causing the black to short or the insulation on the black melted causing the short,
Your dead right the output wires wrap round the pack over the top of cells to the output cells,seems a real stupid design. I'm thinkink of putting output tabs direct from the output cells so no output wireing inside pack on the remaining 3 good packs any thoughts
I would allso like to put some sort of thermal protection in pack any thoughts ideas
Any other suggestions to stop this happening again
