Re: leaf battery shell

Was it?

I'd prefer it went somewhere local. Just seems wrong to ship empty steel across the country. But am open to ideas

I'm hoping someone can crack the bms, so we can use future batteries as is for home storage

So I've come into possession of a complete leaf battery I've already taken out all the modules (using them for Vectrix's) I was originally going to see what new cells I could get to fit into it, with a view to upgrade a leaf at some point. since getting it, I've discovered you can now put the newer ...

Rectify mains, filter and 510R 150W resistor.
That'd cost ~$50.
a couple of 60W incadenscents in place of the resistor would drop the cost further

I've done this before, highly versatile constant current powersupply with really bad efficiency and pretty bad PF

Re: HELP PLEASE I think I killed my cells

why would you need to put 120Ah in before switching back to the normal charger?
I would have thought even 10Ah would be enough to change over (20 hrs or so). likely even less

Re: 3 phase outlet, what is suitable for EV charging?

There is a solution to the high grid voltage problem: lots of cheap UPS have a 230v to 24v transformer built in, for the purpose of stepping up, or stepping down the grid voltage when it is out of range. you could easily harvest a few of these, put the 24v side in series with your incoming grid (eff...

It is useful for comparison when wanting to swap to a different second hand battery.

Re: 3 phase outlet, what is suitable for EV charging?

Anstiscab, surely your pole or pit to house cable is at least 10 mm²? So you'd be able to get more than the 38 A per phase than 6 mm² cable can usually safely handle? But maybe they use thinner conductors for 3 phase houses, I don't know. It seems silly to limit three phase houses to just a little ...

There's a wreck here in WA. I've been toying with the idea of getting it, selling the battery off, and using it in the short term to validate a new battery pack (likely with Chris), and in the long term to be spare parts for my dads imiev.
