Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

For the saloon cooling that wont have enough BTU's. The Masterflux compressor is much more suitable. But for battery cooling it might be ok.

Re: Zappi for charging i-MiEV

Or ask them if the charging cable is serviceable and easily swapped. If thats the case order a Type 2 version Zappi from the UK and order a Type 1 cable for the I-Miev and swap it. Avoid adaptors if you can.

Re: Zappi for charging i-MiEV

Would a myenergi zappi http://myenergi.uk/product/zappi/ be good for charging an i-MiEV? I assume it could ramp up the charge rate a bit more than the standard cable. Can the i-MiEV cope with having the charge rate ramped down as Solar production falls? Is Zappi approved for Australian installation...

Re: Home charging - solar diversion

Has anyone seen a charger like this available in Australia - which takes excess solar and puts in a car before sending it to the grid? Interesting. They talk as if the power is continuously variable, but I suspect that there are actually only 3 practical power levels when charging something like a ...

Re: Need Help with J1772 wiring. Gelco EVSE ??

The Tesla charger needs to be set to legacy mode.... Dip switch 2 inside it... The 882 Ohm resistor and 1N4148 diode will work on most Charging points, but the new 3 phase Tesla HPWC's are fussy. You would of been better off to use a type 2 socket on the lightweight.. It's becoming more common by th...

Re: Odometer tax?

A price per km is fairer all round but the government could make the rate for EV's lower as an incentive....As CJ mentions it was never indexed so it hasn't kept up with CPI. The sticking point is that EV's will be (at least short term) heavier in weight than an equivalent ICE vehicle and will have ...

Re: 2010 Imiev charging question

If your I-Miev doesn't have the 5th pin fitted to the J1772 socket on the car you can not use EVSE's. Easy to check visually.
