  • Sale of second hand house batteries

    Hi all,
    My grandfather has recently swapped his 2 LG RESU 6.5kw batteries for a Tesla Powerwall ( Nothing to do with the performance of the batteries, more a marketing thing I think). I was wondering if there is a second hand market for these and if anyone could provide me with a rough guesstimate of what they would be worth.
    1 was installed in Nov 2016 and the other in Dec 2018 by a reputable installer and there have been 0 issues.
    Thanks in advance for your time and responses.

    I saw a secondary Resu on Craigslist in Northern California. My guess is that shipping will be the biggest issue so a local market might mitigate that. California is a big market because of recent public safety power outages. Where are they located and are they high voltage or 48v? At the right price there definitely will be a market, especially if you can confirm whether the warranty would follow for another 6 or 8 years.
