Re: Q Electric Milk Float - Any Information Please!

Is the engage being used as a stand alone device or is it connected to a curtis motor controller. How is the vehicle performing when the engage is suggesting you are low of power. Is every cell performing as it should? Access the battery terminals, jack the vehicle drive axle up, run the vehicle an...

Re: Q Electric Milk Float - Any Information Please!

I visited Paul yesterday and mercifully found the batteries to be in good condition. There are two Zivan chargers recently fitted. The main issue is the OEM display which is a Curtis enGage IV this went from full to 1 bar in 8 miles the batteries dropped only a volt. There seems to be a password to ...

Re: newby

How original do you want it to be? The biggest advance has been in battery technology. Lead-acid although cheap works out very dear because it lasts such a short time. A lithium battery would be 1/3 the weight and 1/2 the volume roughly speaking. Because they can give more power for longer it may al...

Chademo at last?

Just seen the EVTV video and it seems Chademo is almost here for the converter. This will make all the difference in my opinion. Unfortunately it will mean having high voltage batteries in order to get a fast rate of charge. The idea of being able to make long trips in your home converted vehicle is...

Re: Converting a vw t2 on a bugdet

To answer your question, yes you can use more volts on a 48v milk float motor, I have done it. I second what Grumpy says AGM bateries are a waste of money. I have a car with them and it is useless. The sort of range and speed you desire is likely unachievable on a tight budget. You could easily spen...

Re: Aixam Mega City controller settings

I have a couple of controllers for mega vans. If the settings are the same you might be able to download the settings from these?

Carice featured on BVR cover

This car looks interesting but there are scant technical details available. The weight of 350 Kg is impressive. However I suppose that could be with the smallest battery? The price is not too excessive but again that will be with the smallest battery and the lower powered motor. Sadly it is more tha...

Re: LEAF CHARGER PROJECT

Schooler Although I will probably not void the Leaf warranty please tell all about how to 3 phase charge the Leaf. I assume you attach the mains in Place of the regenerative motor? Chargemaster fitted a 30 Amp single phase charger last week and I noticed the 3phase fuses are 100 Amp so I could fit a...

Re: Lifepo4 cells . Initial charge or not?

Mike I am not sure I can do the subject justice in a post. Might be better to watch the video. To sumarise the plates and electrolyte are stable and non reactive. Only when charged do the Lithium molecules move into the plates and become highly reactive. A protective layer forms which protects the p...
