Public charging design guide

I was wondering if anybody knew of a design guide to help get charging infrastructure built in the optimum way. It seems as though everybody is making it up as they go along and there are some basic do/don't lessons that would benefit from being written down. There have been attempts (there is a TfL...

Re: Specifying shorter range

Kevin, Tim & Greg, Thanks for your replies. I think the Tesla is out of my league... unless the lottery comes up this week. Interesting about the Twizzy: you can specify colour, but not doors! They really do seem to be too much of a toy. G-Wiz is in the same league I'd say, but without the manad...

Specifying shorter range

Before I look a complete dork in public I thought I'd pitch this one on the Forum to see if there has been earlier conversation on the subject of specifying cars with even more limited range than is common. (I am new to the Society) The thinking goes like this: I live on an island and I drive 8 mile...

Re: Newbie battery questions

Greg, Thanks for the posting. VERY helpful. I do appreciate your time on this. :) The car does have a Paktrakr so I will have a look at what that is saying over the weekend. Also I will be immersing myself in the joys of the Peukert effect for bed time reading. Any other contributions will also be g...

Newbie battery questions

Hi, I need to replace the 6 lead acid batteries in the Matiz conversion I bought and am feeling my way in here. A few questions are rattling round in my head and I'd be glad of some steers if possible. 1. Sealed v Low Maint Lead Acids. Is there much to choose in terms of performance/reliability etc?...
