Re: berlingo help

Hi Grumpy. I fully understand where you are coming from. Please re-read my previous post. It's not about using the original charger as it was designed. The idea is to spoof/bypass it. No matter. It's not us getting stuck in. As you know, EVTV has found an incredible AH (coloumb) counter. http://send...

Re: berlingo help

If its a constant CC/CV charge.. If the Voltage cannot go higher than the lithium packs charged Voltage then they ought not to get overcharged. CC will save the charger from melting. Then the rest will need to be spoofed. Say if the current drops enough, make the temperature sensor pins go "hi&...

Re: berlingo help

Lead batteries lose capacity from day one. They hate going low so your mileage will be dropping from day one. If you can squeeze a couple of years out of them just for the shops and back you'll be doing well. :( You could have 45 cells of 60AH that should weigh 200lb and give 9KWH if you invested in...

Re: berlingo help

If SLA's were considered then there's no need for more than 25 miles.. The drop in weight shouldn't overstress any batteries.

Re: berlingo help

Hi Woofy, if you do the numbers, SLA's are not cost effective any more against the likes of CALB or Sinopoly LiFePo4's. These are 3x the charge for half the weight and last a very, very long time if not abused with over charge or over discharge. However, the charging profiles of any completely diffe...

See you in 5 days. We're off to Blackpool today ;)
