Wow. I paid twice that for the mower. I'm getting that trimmer though, that's cheaper than the body only.

Yeah its the same stuff. Good quality, mower is (still) running like a champ.

At half price its a steal!

I had a look on the site - is this coming up? Prices for where I am are the same as usual.

Hello From Newcastle

Bought - its a 40W CO2 with a 300 X 200 bed (roughly A4) that's brilliant for cutting perspex and plywood (and engraving glass/anodized aluminium).

Hello From Newcastle

Yep - there is a Newcastle charter of AEVA that was meeting at Catavolt, I've been a bit busy lately with life in general to go...

I'm of a similar background, have 2 Vectrix, and am into CNC laser cutting.

They are pretty decent, I bought the 80V mower (victa branded, but its just the EGO stuff re-badged).

Same thing - fan cooled battery charger that sucks the air through the cells, 300W fast charger(!).

Jack Rickard No BMS

That blinding belief in bottom balancing, and a mistrust (hatred?) of all things BMS led to this.

Funny that he actually he had no success in bottom balancing leaf cells, and admitted they probably need a BMS.

No, really Jack?

Interesting. I wondered when these would be coming in - they are the cheapest per kwh at the moment.

Yep sounds good.

I forgot the EV festival was on again, should take the Vectrix and do a couple of laps.

I *really* need to throw the leaf cells in it, the thundersags are living up to their name (143V resting to 102.9V @ 150A urk). Not going to be real competitive with anything at that rate.

FS: ME1003, TC 144V charger, Chennic DC/DC

Can this be reduced slightly to 158V? I think someone posted the details on a while ago. I'm interested as I need something with a bit more output for the 38 series leaf conversion in the vectrix. I have a 180V one that I was hoping to set to a lower voltage, but the Elcon thread died a death months...

Power Factor - what is it?

You can't - those wireless ones work with a current clamp and seem to assume a PF of 100. They are woeful with low PF loads - I had a capacitive divider charger that had a PF of 30, and drew 600W(ish) and the power meter showed it as 1800W.

Yay. I'm very interested in seeing this progress.

The V forums get around having copyrighted stuff like scooterdiag on their actual site by having a few dedicated members sharing the files via PM. Since the site itself isn't hosting them, no foul.

Sorry - 'you' was referring to the previous owner.

I can send you the one you sent me back, it doesn't have any internals at the moment though...

Where is the bracket going to go? I still haven't mounted mine, it lives under the seat.

That's the crappiest website ever to find out any information on the event.

Surely someone can put up more details than that?!

I'm interested in the grand prix - no idea how you get involved, the website doesn't help.

I think the one at Wallsend plaza is also operational, I haven't looked at the one at Glendale for a while.
