Re: Non OEM Leaf battery upgrade?

I am not sure how his extender battery boxes would go in the sunny summers here but his experiments and CANbus knowledge would sure be a useful resource.

Re: Small wind turbines

They are handy for powering remote communications equipment when there are bad bush fires, lots of use, lots of wind, and no sunlight due to smoke.

I am expecting you to post complete circuit diagrams for all the electronics in the LEAF now that you have one to pull apart and trace.

Re: MG eZS

I guess they (the right hand drive ones) will be released in the UK first, so see how they go there. They will probably be quite popular in the UK, with the MG brand and the prices may be very good too.

Re: E63 LG 63Ah NCM battery group buy

Looks like they are the batteries, 2p in the ZOE and 3p in the KONA. There must be a way of fitting them 2p in an older LEAF.

Re: ICEd EV Chargers

I don't see you should not be allowed to double park beside or behind them and use an extension lead. Maybe even leave your phone number just in case they want to move their car before you have finished charging (if you are available).

Hi Tom, I am embarrassed to say I have not checked them so they are whatever they were when delivered! On my to-do list. I have a range of charging options. That which I use the most is my OpenEVSE three phase 22kW charger in conjunction with the Zoe Type2 cable One amp increments 6-32A and three p...

Re: 2018 Nissan Leaf!

Well looks like it is selling for $54,500- $55,500 (NSW on road). I guess that puts it between the Ionig EV and the Kona EV in both price and battery size. It appears that some sort of announcement has been made that the old LEAF (if bought new in Australia) can get the battery replaced for $9,500 p...

Re: 42 kWh!

https://insideevs.com/bmw-2019-i3-i3s-42-2-kwh-battery/ That should be enough to do 220 km around town, and a comfortable 180 km on the highway. Wonder if they offer battery upgrades...

Re: 2018 Nissan Leaf!

I see someone suggesting a RRP of $42,000 ..... my guess given Nissan's original pricing for the original Leaf would be well into the $60,000s and probably nearer $70,000 for the 60kw version. Of more interest to me is the NV2000 which reportedly got 40kw from earlier this year. Whether or not it w...

Nissan dealers are quoting owners in Australia about $34,000 AUD to replace worn out battery packs. Do they really think they are going to sell the new model here?
