Re: Training

Hi Bill - re EVSEs - have just written an article for ReNew to help homeowners get up to speed with what is/isn't possible re EVSE choices to better inform them before calling in the electrician. Should be in newsagents (or in your letterbox if you subscribe) in next few days.

Re: 2011 nissan leaf

FYI: I have a 2011 Leaf (16 came in for Vic EV trial and were sold off after) so no-go to import one - but just having that series oficially imported negates bringing them in privately, no matter which year. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings. Bryce

Re: WTB: 90Ah (or 100Ah) Winston cells x 9

Hi Terry - they're Thundersky LFP90Ah.
Max charge current is 3C, standard charge current is 0.3C.
Size: 217mm x 61mm x 145 mm. (Although exact size is not that important - can reconfigure the blocks to suit anything close to that).
Vmax 4.25V, Vmin 2.5V.

Thanks for looking!

Re: WTB: 90Ah (or 100Ah) Winston cells x 9

Good question - however it's a 96V system - dropping 15V would be a deal-breaker and pulling out another 10 or so would make it's range just that bit too low!
