Thanks but what is your 60Ah ?
They also have a NCM 3.68v 78Ah ( 150mm X W40mm X H98mm) , that fits in the LEV dimensions.

First work should be adapting the temperature sensor to another cell.

I can't find the 78Ah model you refer to, but those dimensions seem ideal, and 78Ah would be a good step up without wasting too much if the BMS only recognises 60ah.

You are right, everything doesn't seem to be on their website but they have it ! It is made by LiYuan.

Thanks for the datasheet...
Size : (L148x H133x W27mm)

The height is about 20mm more than the original, Does it fit ?
What are the real maximum dimensions we can accept ?

That should only matter for the ones sitting right-way-up in the middle of the battery pack. All others are normally on their sides, but these can be made to work standing upright.
