Rectify mains, filter and 510R 150W resistor.
That'd cost ~$50.
a couple of 60W incadenscents in place of the resistor would drop the cost further

I've done this before, highly versatile constant current powersupply with really bad efficiency and pretty bad PF

Re: HELP PLEASE I think I killed my cells

why would you need to put 120Ah in before switching back to the normal charger?
I would have thought even 10Ah would be enough to change over (20 hrs or so). likely even less

I actually saw this idea somewhere else, though for the life of me I can't find it. possibly silicon chip or autospeed

Re: 3 phase outlet, what is suitable for EV charging?

There is a solution to the high grid voltage problem: lots of cheap UPS have a 230v to 24v transformer built in, for the purpose of stepping up, or stepping down the grid voltage when it is out of range. you could easily harvest a few of these, put the 24v side in series with your incoming grid (eff...

yeah, the monitoring units on top of the blocks of cells.

It is useful for comparison when wanting to swap to a different second hand battery.

Re: 3 phase outlet, what is suitable for EV charging?

Anstiscab, surely your pole or pit to house cable is at least 10 mm²? So you'd be able to get more than the 38 A per phase than 6 mm² cable can usually safely handle? But maybe they use thinner conductors for 3 phase houses, I don't know. It seems silly to limit three phase houses to just a little ...

Maybe The 63A breaker may be there simply to act as a switch, rather than be there for current protection The utilities are a bit of a law unto themselves.

Re: i-miev degradation in the tropics

There's a wreck here in WA. I've been toying with the idea of getting it, selling the battery off, and using it in the short term to validate a new battery pack (likely with Chris), and in the long term to be spare parts for my dads imiev.

Re: i-miev degradation in the tropics

There are second hand imiev batteries available.
Josephs old pack is sitting at EV Shop for instance.

in case of a complete failure, I would be swapping to a second hand 80 or 90km range pack on the cheap, if that's all the range you need

I'm assuming you have already looked at the usual maps, plugshare, nextcharge, recargo and chargepoint? I do have a friend who works for the Mooreland (I think that's how you spell it) council, who has been able to get a number of stations installed. He owns a kona too, and previously owned a Zoe
