Re: New Blade Electron owner

The tm4 has a hard lower voltage limit of 200v.

How are you measuring 180v? The nominal system voltage should be 320v or 100 lifepo4 cells.

Does yours have the cylindrical cells like in my car?

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

The Tc chargers have internal output relays, so don't need Pre charge. Johny - why would the inverter need a separate fuse? I haven't seen that before. The battery fuse is usually sized to protect the wires between battery and inverter. I could understand if there's multiple major loads, but the inv...

Re: Lithium Starter Batteries

I'd love to take that battery off your hands if you're willing to part with it. There's a certain prelude conversion that would benefit from a light starting lighting battery.

Re: Home charging outlets - load sharing

Just put in 3 x 15A power points and remember to only use two at a time.

How many cars do you have to charge?

Re: 10 Amp charging

I've seen heaps of 10A extension leads with 1.5mm2 wire. I get mine from bunnings The wire in the wall is all 2.5mm2, with usually a 15A fuse, 16A or 20A circuit breaker. The only difference between a 10A and a 15 A PowerPoint is the bigger earth pin. If you've been charging fine from a 10A PowerPoi...

Re: iMiev won't start!

The sudden death episodes tend to be more a flooded lead acid battery issue. Basically sediment in the bottom of one or more of the cells results in a condition path between sets of plates. Sediment moves around though.

Not really applicable to the various sealed lead acid types

Re: iMiev won't start!

My dads 2012 did the same thing when his 12v battery died.

I'd recommend going to your local mechanic or battery recycler or even computer shop to see if they have any free 12v batteries.

Even a little ex UPS 20ah unit would do

Hi guys, So my dad recently drove his imiev down a hill while it was still plugged in. Apparently the charge interlock doesn't stop gravity Several of the pins are bent on the plug. I think I can fix it if I can get another plug that's been damaged from being dropped or vandalised. So, does anyone h...

Re: 2012 Imiev 70K kms, battery u/s.

You'll need to take two readings, one where the car is fully charged. The other when the car stops. That will expose which cells are causing problems, and also whether the issue is balancing related
