When the car gets to 25% SOC it then limits the car to 30mph which helps reduce the overall current draw, and when it gets to 15% SOC the car is then limited to 15mph - I have done this just to t...

Re: Gunwarf charging points

Yes, I was just reading the Polar Charge terms - £95 joining fee and a minimum of £19.50 a month - plus 95 pence for every time you charged. Ecotricity card - membership is free - how much to charge - free. Umm, I wonder which one will be popular?

Re: Long range lithium conversion

What is the cut off voltage for your charging? My cells turn off the charger when the cells get to 4.04 volts.

Re: Long range lithium conversion

On a charge at last !!!!. I hope that you notice that the batteries behave better after having a charge. I notice that if I dont charge my pack over night the following day the pack voltage is a bit softer under load.

What make are your batteries? Are they Thundersky?
