    Thank you for your insight , following your suggestion, we were provided a Braille CF replacement battery.

    Question I have is, what did you do to by-pass the lead directly next to the negative post , that plugs into the OEM battery as noted in the photo below?

    Also, FWIW , the OEM battery is 95% of the cost , the labor is minimal to R&R + reset procedure after battery replacement.

    The OEM two batteries I have replaced in the past several years were $11,014.08 and $12,556.05 + shipping ( Part # 323568 )

    I learnt from a LaFerrari owner friend who is having his KERS battery replaced currently that the natural lifespan of the battery chemistry is apparently around 10 years but reduces with discharge cycles and sitting uncharged. His is an early car, so if true, we should be seeing a many more battery replacements over the coming 2-5 years.

    No battery lasts forever.

    I’m currently having the dealer provide a health check as they’re no longer under warranty... Happy Days!

    Does this work for the LaFerrari? The EPA classifies hybrid batteries under emissions equipment, requiring manufacturers to warranty them for eight years and 100,000 miles. Some states, like California, require emissions equipment to be covered for ten years and 150,000 miles. If the battery fails within warranty range, your total replacement cost is zero.
