emeter

Amino Yes but - - how does it know how much charge is remaining? And then there is the fact that a battery contains no electricity. For lead/acid batteries it appears that one must measure the amount of sulphuric acid and I'm pretty sure the e-meter doesn't do that. Curious Tom

550 I have a similar sized vehicle (Mitsubishi pickup-2000# ready to go) so my experience may be helpful. I went with 6 12V marine batteries and a fixed ratio drive. I will do things differently next time. 72V gives good acceleration but marginal top speed - 35 mph, while 80Ahr allows only 15-20 mil...
