Details of EV trips undertaken

Id like to hear how our EV owners use their EVs to give us all an idea of what can & cant be done. Ill start off: Today I drove from Sandringham to Frankston & back, 56ks. The return trip was on the freeway about 16ks. This I did at 90ks (needing 90A @ 140V). 90Ahrs LIIon & 42Ahrs lead 144V. Once up...

EV Run to Canberra AGM 2009

For the original Melb to Syd EV run, canceled due to lack of numbers, We had intended having our own silenced gen set able to charge about 4-5 evs at the same time. So need about 15-20kVA. This would have been mounted on the Melb branch tandem trailer (the same one that maimed my car & destroyed KW'...

Some comments on LFPs & AGM run together

If it was cost driven, Id never have gotten into EVs at all. The cost per k is much higher, amortizing battery life, than say using my Honda Insight (3.5k/100 liters)for everyday personal transport.

Some comments on LFPs & AGM run together

Since adding 45 LRP 90s but retaining a string of the original 42Ahr (less one of the 12V bats) I have experimented with performance & charging. The AGMs are charged by the LFPs and are not charged by the NG3 generally. The AGMs are connected by a 100A Heineman CB that trips occasionally indicating ...

EV Run to Canberra AGM 2009

Ill never do this again after I jack knifed the Melb branch tandem trailer and nearly wrote off my car. Kevin W did the same & did write off his car. The EV doesnt like being towed. It wants to be the boss.

Melb to Syd EV tour

The tour organising is still at preliminary planning. Id like to see at least 15 EVs expressing interest & 10 definitely going before I do the detailed planning. This will involve buying one mobile Diesel generator able to charge a 144V nominal battery pack at 100A and another to hire able to provid...
