WA EV trial report

Skimmed the report

Spotted the bit about noise from motor
High pitched whine
Only can be heard with younger ears

This occurs on the volt on petrol / hold mode
Mainly on accel and deceleration

Really good intro into conversions for gen public

Ford ranger pickup running on lead acid

I Just remembered that one had to add water to lead acids
So that article on aluminium air where water is added every 200km is not so bad

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Specs.

That's because dc charging is $$$

The charge point units installed at northside Nissan and magic Nissan are already 30a

E-stations current model also is 32a

The tesla roadster and model s supposedly come with a 32amp industrial plug

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Specs.

Hmmm mitsu still sticking with 3.3kw charging I guess this will be similar to the volt since it has petrol backup Also possibly cheaper and maybe kinder to the batteries. Chademo for fast charging spark ev also has 3.3kw ac charging. http://insideevs.com/plug-in-compact-comparison-chevrolet-spark-vs...

BMW I battery torture tests

Will be interesting to see what tesla will do with their ads

I guess that they haven't bothered with the roadster since it is way beyond the general public's budget

Possibly similar to the Nissan GTR?

Shake test is my favourite

Mitsubishi has also done similar tests on the car, with battery pack installed.

that is what Nikki GB also brought up.
RVs in America also may park at the electric charge spots
