I have a number of old Thundersky lithium batteries and need to dispose of them. Any suggestions on where to take them?
Super exciting project. Can’t wait to see how it all works out. Out of interest where did you get the Leaf modules from? I wouldn’t mind using them in my project The Leaf modules came out of my old car, I have had them for several years. https://forums.aeva.asn.au/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=2065 Purchase...

When installing the TDC-320 DC-DC converter I also replaced the 12V ancillary battery with a Drypower 12SB22C 12Volt 22Ah battery. I chose a sealed lead-acid because they are designed for a trickle (or float) charge, which is most of its life in MR02EV. 22Ah is a significant increase in capacity ove...

Its been some time since my last post but the work on MR02EV has continued regardless, the latest upgrade being a TDC-320-12JG DC-DC converter from TC Charger, supplied by Elmofo.com.au Over time I have used several DC-DC converters and the TDC-320-12JG is by far the best. Its is not the cheapest by...

I recently added a second EV to the vehicle fleet, a Vmoto Emax 110s scooter. They were imported into Australia in 2010 and came with about 100kg of glass mat absorbed lead acid batteries. So were embarrassingly heavy. Have upgraded the battery pack in mine with 8 Nissan Leaf modules left over from ...
The gearbox in MR02EV is is a standard Toyota gearbox. When driving 2nd gear gets the car smartly of the line and 3rd gear is for cruising above 60kph. However, in a manual gearbox shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear is a “dog leg” which is pretty annoying after a while. So with the help of two fellow...
In 2008 I purchased an MES-DEA 200-250 AC induction motor for the EV conversion of my MR2. More information on the motor can be found here:-
MR-02-EV has covered over 1,500 km since registration and whilst there are plenty of things to fix or improve I drive it to work almost every day. Recently I drove it over the Harbor Bridge on the way home from work ... first time.
The Automotive Engineer has signed-off my eMR-2 and I have a vehicle safety compliance certificate (an engineering certificate). Following is an extract from the document which gives you a flavor of the information that was required. Section 3. Description of vehicle or modifications to vehicle in a...
The controller is very complex to setup and configure. I got nowhere for several months until I managed to contact the engineer at MES who designed it …. the supplier was useless but he did accidentally include an email conversation with the engineer in an email to me!

Hello World … it’s probably time for an update. Whilst the MR-2 conversion has been slow going it has definitely been progressing and in Dec 2012 my father and I took it to Kreative Engineering in Windsor for an engineering certificate. It did not pass … but all the problems are minor and well on th...
