Not sure that they are that tight on salvage. A couple of years ago Rep. Tom Massie (R-KY) salvaged an S model's batteries and used them to replace the lead-acid batteries to power his home. He made a video of the process: https://www.*******.com/watch?v=qpPYkqpe-Ms

BTW, We're switching from lead-acid to lithium next week (I hope) to power our house. From 24 batteries that need some monthly maintenance to 3 that don't.
