For those of you that are fortunate to get these cells here is the best way that I have found to salvage them and clean them up.
12 batteries 20 cells each 240 cells.

First thing I do is take a utility knife blade and flick the spot welded tabs on the buss PCB up as best as possible

Then I take a pair of side cutters and pull up on the tabs that I just exposed. Some of them have gooon them some not.

Once you pull the tabs up you have weakenedthe bus bar attachment and you can pop it off with a plastic upholstery tool

The PCB on the end will just pop off

Do 1 side at a time as if you do both you will bend the tabs back in place.

Once you are done removing the buss bars take a #1 phillips screwdriver and remove the 2 hidden screws under the silicone

Then turn the battery around and use the same #1 philips to unscrew the support rod that holds the cells together.
I use a drill and just push in as hard as I can and it will eventually come apart. Practice required :D

The cells will then separate into individual 4 packs

You can then remove as much of the nickle as you like. I just remove enough to free them from the plastic holder.

Set them aside for final processing.

Final processing with small flush cutters

Final results a nice purple pyramid.

Also there are at least two type of ninebot batteries the ones with the metal bar and hidden screw, Ones with abs connectors between every 4 cell group. 90% have the metal bar and hidden screw.
