Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

The PHEV eats the battery with low tyre pressures. My 2014 build at 25000kms gets 44-46kms after an overnight charge. I am using a 16A EVSE to max out the onboard charger though..

Re: Celica 1977 RA28 restoration + performance EV conversion!

Hi all, I'm building (to my knowledge) the first RA28 electric conversion downunder. Please have a look and bookmark for future updates if your interested!

Re: Hyundai Australia Kona EV info

I guess if they manage to get it here before the Model 3 they will want to capitalise on that by selling it at more than Model 3 prices. More like equal it. With the current exchange rate, I''d be surprised if the entry level Model 3 came in at under $55 000, and I think $60 000 is more likely. Thi...

Is there a possibility for custom firmware for the 3024MSE?.
As a point of interest, what features were you hoping for in a patched firmware?
LifePo4 charging support for AVASS cells... :-). But it appears setting bulk and float to the same voltage might work.

Is there a possibility for custom firmware for the 3024MSE?. Sorry Reecho, but no. At least not from Coulomb and I. As you can imagine, it is very time-consuming work. Keeping up with PIP-4048MS firmware, and hopefully soon PIP-5048MS firmware, when new version come out, is as much as we can handle...

Re: iMiev stopped with RR showing 7km's and 2 bars

Once a cell drops below 2.75v it's like someone turns off the light switch. Goneski.

That's what has happened.

After 8 years the batteries will be getting on. Unfortunately the replacement pack is worth almost twice what the car is.

Re: Hyundai Australia Kona EV info

It is that simple, I didn't say the Kona would be $67,000 in Australia, I just posted what the NZ price is in Australian dollars, in case other people were interested. That is what it would cost in Australian dollars if you go to New Zealand and buy one. At the moment you can't buy one in Australia...

Re: Hyundai Australia Kona EV info

Converts to around $67,000 in Australian Dollars. It's not that simple. NZ does not have a free trade agreement with SK. Add to that the market is much smaller that AU. Jump onto the Hyundai NZ page and compare pricing to the locally delivered models. You will get a sense of the scale. Example: in ...

Whats the size of the Goodwe SBP you scored
The 5Kw version.

I think I have managed to stumble on the CAN BUS protocols. As you would expect it looks like they have copied Sunny Boy's Island product, just with a few changes.


Why am I not surprised.. :-)
