Of course Ive already pulled mine apart because theres no such thing as non resettable and I reset mine back to 0.01 instead of 0.19. Very tricky little interlocking crank handle from the counter/driver unit over to the rolling digit frame. Get the white plastic facia off first with bent circlip pli...

Mitsubishi aim for double capcity

Double battery capacity ?????
exactly the opposite.
Mitsubishi are going to re-release the Imiev as a hybrid with 60km battery only range and 1.2l caveman engine.
They are also releasing an Outlander Hybrid.

Cancelled - EIG cells available through EV-Power!

as a general rule the higher the "C" rating of a cell the less cycles it will live through . the ones you linked to look like hobby cells and most of them are only good for 80 to 200 cycles Only if you thrash them in a racing situation. Thats why they are good for race bikes, you cant fit many cell...

Keeping the 0913 for the moment but... Selling these hardly used QS 5kW hub motors that were modified for our quad bike project. Gone to a different motor concept as these were too involved and time consuming to modify. They would be great for a frame mount DH app as they are already bracketed with ...
