Re: Zappi EVSE

It might be useful in an AC coupled system, where the aim is to charge the car before letting the Solar charge the house batteries.

If only a mere mortal could get a hv DC bus inverter.

I've been flirting with the idea of using a vfd with a 600v DC bus as a 3 phase ac coupled inverter. Creating the neutral is my stumbling block

Re: 4Springs' Home Battery Storage System

Cycle count does a bad job of telling the story of service life. Either extreme of soc wears cells. High charge or discharge rate wears cells. High temp or extremely low temp wears cells.

Splitting the pack in two likely won't help your service life

Re: super caps in a NHW10

The caps I bought didn't meet spec, 300F instead of 500F, with wide variation and really high internal resistance.

I could retry with larger maxwells, but it's cost prohibitive

You would need to add to the cell groups underneath the car too. That may be challenging to impossible

Re: TO BLADE, OR NOT TO BLADE?

I misread earlier, I thought you were planning on upgrading it, rather than it already being upgraded.

Make sure you get a wiring diagram off the person who did the upgrade work.

Out of curiosity, did they fit a larger battery? Any other details on what the upgrade entailed?

Re: Non OEM Leaf battery upgrade?

The only one I saw working properly had two separate packs. The original as is, and a second one external and connected after the battery ecu current sensor. The car just saw the original battery discharging slower.

I'm struggling to find the link though 🤔

Re: 10kW Motorbike Conversion

Top speed would be fairly short lived due to heat buildup. My Vectrix draws 10kw to do 100 -110kmh.

Tricky part is you don't really know until after its built and you've tested it
