    Ideas for using a 24V 40Ah LiFePO4 battery with damaged cell to power a 12V 500W inverter?

    I acquired the battery in subject from one of the local recycle groups. It consists of nominally sixteen 3.2V 20Ah LiFePO4 pouch cells arranged in 8s2p configuration (pouches in pairs soldered to a PCB that puts them in series). One of the pairs developed a fault and was desoldered and removed...
