The NiHM cells are packaged six to a pack assembly. Swapping the packs
around lets me swap the location of the strongest and weakest cells.

Check the Wiki article since it depends upon the model. My NHW11 has 38
cell packs.

I use Ebay to buy packs from salvage or wrecks.

It varies.

Well in my case, I already have a $50 spare battery and will swap it
with my perfectly good battery in about 8,000 miles. In effect, I have
two such batteries and will use one or the other.

When my original battery comes out, I plan to do the same modifications
to it. In short, it looks like I'll never have to pay the $,500
replacement cost  since I'll be doing my own work.
