I believe there is at least one workshop in Jordan which reconditions batteries, presumably by replacing bad cells with good ones. I don't know where they get the replacements - maybe from wrecked cars?

I suggest you get a suitable bluetooth interface such as KONNWEI KW 903, and the SoulEVSpy app for Android, and plug into your OBD2 socket, to check the individual cell-pairs of your battery - you may not have many bad ones, but they are all connected in series, so one really bad one can drag the whole battery down.
