Where to get battery rebuilt

I've been using an electric Ute for a couple of years now and the battery is starting not to hold as much charge as it once did. Kona is quoting a charge of $500+ to replace the battery.

Can anyone suggest a shop which might be able to switch out the cells within the battery for less than this? Based on the volume, I'm assuming Kona used generic cells.

Not sure what size battery you have, but couldn't you just get one from bmsbattery, or do you have packaging constraints? will build you a customized battery as is possible.
