Re: Power cuts = no transport

Wow, now that is a long old power outage. We had one a couple of years back, and I ran my small invertor off the citroen 12v battery for a few hours to keep my router alive as well.

Re: Another EV bike :)

Thats not too bad, drawing 9 amps for 2.5 hours, is what, about 22 ah. Will you be able to test the a larger pack when you have built one at higher currents? I wouldn't like to try and drain 100+ amps unless I had the correct equipment to do it.

Hi Chris, Looks like you will have some smart packs there. Be very interested to see what sort of performance you get from them.

Re: British gas charging station yes or no

Also, it is a station with a J1772 connector - is the charger in your car a smart type of charger that will accept this connection?

Re: Another EV bike :)

well, I for one am looking forward to seeing this pack being built. and it will be interesting to see how it performs.

Another question I was just thinking of - do you have any idea on the size ( volume ) the pack will be, and an estimated weight at all?
