Oops, I take it back. Turns out China has their own standard which uses connectors that look the same as the type 2 mennekes units.

Type 2 charge leads

Hi guys, The latest generation of EVs are being shipped without home charge cables. For those not in the know, these allowed you to charge the car from any normal power point. If you're willing to roll your own, I'd recommend getting one of these http://s.aliexpress.com/jMrMFbAJ?fromSns=Copy to clip...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Could it be the panels weren't at max power point until the inverter took some of the load? Likely array output was higher than what the batteries could take?

Re: Interesting issue affecting private imports

The mod is a resistor and a diode. Maybe two resistors, a switch and a diode if you want it to work with all stations. Not expensive, just a bit of soldering

The AC charge speed is the same for both the 2010 and 2012 models.

The 2010 just charge at full speed all the time. The 2012 back off if the evse says so. Both draw Max 3.3kw

Does the same thing happen when the plug is plugged in, but the evse has no power attached?

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

When the car stops, has anyone been able to check the cell voltages, whilst the car fails to proceed?

I wonder if the issue is actually the motor controller, rather than the battery or charger?

Re: innovation

For the EV side of things, I'd recommend just getting an imiev cab for $15k. If you want to do a conversion on the space gear, you'll need at least $30k. It doesn't normally pan out unless you really need or want that specific vehicle Brace yourself, the mirth is coming; discussing anything overunity

Re: WTB: Vectrix (or functional equivilant)

There is a fellow who put 3 x Tesla modules into a Vectrix giving 15kwh and 250km range. It means you have to modify the modules into 48v 110Ah units by cutting 2 of the interconnecting plates. Leaf modules are still the easiest to use. I do know of a Vectrix in qld whose owner is looking to sell. I...

Have you considered a hybrid vehicle like a prius? Same major components, the difference is scale and addition of internal explosion engine.
