Re: Terminal posts!!!

Hi Chris - I investigated these a while ago - the 48V relates to their use for forklifts, the manufacturer never bothered to gt them rated for anything higher. If the material used has a breakdown voltage significantly above 400V and the terminal distances are far enough from conductive surfaces - t...

Vic meetings cancelled for next 3 months

Hi to all Vic AEVA members! As you may have guessed, the current covid19 precautions effectively prevent the holding of any form of public gathering. As a consequence, the April, May and June meetings of the AEVA Vic branch have now been formally cancelled. As a replacement, roughly monthly emails w...

Re: Kona Electric 2019 Tips, Tricks and the Manual

Hmmm. That's odd - I tested my Kona's adaptive cruise control system some time ago on a trip to Sydney - I remember it being excellent at holding the set speed up and down hills as well as altering speed to maintain the set distance from cars in the same lane. However I am not a fan of cruise contro...

Re: OK I'm confused!

Hi there - I would also check the conductor size in your '10A lead'. They have been downsized over the years as manufacturers cut costs to the nth degree. You need at least 1.0mm2 conductors to carry 10A continuously for a long period of time (preferably 1.5mm2), but many so-called 10A leads are now...

Re: Home charging

Hi there - my recommendations (as an electrician and EVSE installer/tinkerer) is I'd go with a Zappy or similar: in your situation, that would ensure you get the most out of solar charging and keep your EV to the min CO2-e possible. Putting in dedicated EVSE with its heavy duty type 2 plug also avoi...

Re: Crossing the mountains

Hi Dave-did it in a Kona about 2 months ago. Bairnsdale to Myrtleford. Arrived with about 100km range to spare. (Was running heater over the mountain though. 0 and below and still lots of snow then).There is a type 2 AC charger at Hotham if you are nervous though.

Re: EV Sticker for Number Plates

The Leaf they sent them for is registered as a 2011 model. My 2019 Kona has not been sent any! BTW the Vic regs have actually applied for quite some time - I have been getting them made to the Vic reg specs (as in just like the ones they sent!) for about 7 years.

Re: EV Sticker for Number Plates

Interestingly (owning 3 EVs), I only received one set of stickers (for the Leaf). Nothing for the other 2. I wonder how accurate their records are... or were they were overwhelmed by so many EVs on their records that they had to send the sticker out in several batches? 😆

Re: AC Type 2 chargers - Understanding different combinations

Hi there-fact sheets are as correct as I can get them given the difficulty of getting some of the data 'officially'! All are currently right though. (I monitor for vehicle updates). BTW: As far as I understand it-all Type 1 and 2 plug cars can step up and down in a fairly granular manner. Cheers Bryce
