Goal
Gen1 models are unsupported by Zero but are relatively simple in operation.
Replacing an aging or failed battery can be effective (if expensive) for the right owner with the skills or access to a professional.

Overview
There are several somewhat documented reports of using a stack of Nissan LEAF 7.4V 60Ah modules (7 in series or 7s = 51.8V ≅ 52V) to replace a pre-2013 Zero S-platform battery pack.
Reportedly, the BMS handles this relatively well. Details still being assembled.
