Use 2 sets of Lithium Batteries - distance solved

By george I had a feeling someone would say that. I have also considered such a combination but i thought that separation would give positive advice to drivers --that they are on the last leg. To change the power over I thought looked rather professional http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley4.gif

Use 2 sets of Lithium batteries - double distance

Since lithium batteries are about a third lighter then AGM or Liquid acid batteries most vehicles can carry 2 sets and still have extra weight allowance. Will this solve the problem of travelling 100-150 km distance? A medium vehicle with power of 120 volt 10 Kw similar to Barina or Charade can carr...

Genuine 100k range and bursts at 100kmph in a real modern EV would suit me fine. {quote} This is a realistic goal and achievable without too much trauma. a Conversion like this will cost around 15k and you can chose your own type of vehicle. Auto manufactureres calculate their production costs 3 thi...

Since the 14th century and importing spaggs to venice and later Italy there was a a new breed of people there   and they are still there   they are all Tenors and every single one thinks he is Caruso I wouldn't bet that it was due to the spaghetti that Marko Polo imported to italy

Nor was I! The truth is, 'FOLKS' don't want underpowered, inefficient, limited range, unreliable EV's markopolo:
as though you would know what they are like how efficient-- how powerful - how reliable and the distance is increasing.. --
