Re: Vectrix and assorted EV parts

So it turns out the batteries in the Vectrix are actually OK, there was a loose busbar that was causing a high resistance joint.

I'll re-list this bike with updated information. I don't have the room in my garage to store it, nor the time to ride it since I have a 700cc gasser (boo hiss I know).

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?

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.
