The Woods charger from my understanding is an Australian made charger and has the Australian safety approvals. It should be easy enough to have the Woods charger repaired I would have thought?

Headway 38120L&38120S cells bulk production

Good weight saving there lithbattboss in that particular application... but just doing some sums.... If 8S6P makes 24v 48Ah (48 cells - 3v 8Ah each)@23.5kgs, I would need 12 times that 12 x 24v to get 288v 48Ah (12 * 48 cells = 576 cells). 12 * 23.5kgs = 282kgs verses 80 x 60Ah Sky Energy (80 * 2.2...

Go the Zilla 2k, you always need more power. The Zilla 2k sounds like a good idea with A123 cells. The suggestion by EV2Go of a 4 wheel drive conversion is a good one since I have seen similar model vehicles parked in the most rugged places such as bush land, creek beds and the like. So these vehic...

Urgent request for help

Since you purchased the charger from EV Power it would make sense that the first course of action is you contact EV Power to explain the issues of concern so they can rectify the problem or replace the charger if it is faulty.

The federal government has ruled out offering ince

The Australian Government is not interested in supporting EV's or an EV industry in Australia which is a shame. In Europe and the USA they are much more serious about EV's.
So our government says it is just a "fad".
It is a pity how Australia is going down the drain under this government.
