Re: Car concervsion to electric power & legality

Hello Raph, and welcome You didn't have 'do conversion' on your list, so I am presuming you will have done that before step 1. So long as you tell your insurance company about the conversion (this might result in them asking lots of questions, or refusing to insure you. Finding a friendly insurer is...

Re: Disposal of old lithium batteries

Hello Mike, and all I have just had an email, from Alan Ward in Dorset who says that his local tip (he is in Dorset) has a separate section for expired lithium batteries. So they are catered for in some places. The email was in response to a plea from Bob Knox in Exeter who would like a single 200Ah...

Re: New member, new project...

Hello Fred, and welcome Sounds like a sensible plan for your bike. I haven't played with LEAF modules myself but several people on here have. I'm thinking they will need some sort of BMS. I don't think the modules have any intelligence in themselves. Where in the world are you? Maybe there are local...

Re: Advice request on Motor caravan leisure batteries.

Hello BML I think you are in the wrong place. It sounds like you need the Vehicle Battery Society. We spend all day telling people NOT to use Leisure batteries in their electric cars as they are not designed for the current draw of a traction battery application. Maybe the Caravan Club could help yo...

Re: Disposal of old lithium batteries

Hello Mike I don't know the answer to this, but I am interested in how they fail when old, despite having offloaded all mine now. How big is 'alarmingly'? HiPower always said they did not need strapping, unlike other similar vintage prismatic cells. Did you get yours from Rob Sharpe? They were my or...

Re: Mennekes type 2 Charging Outlet

Hello Steve The 7-pin Mennekes type 2 socket is the standard used most widely in public charging points at the roadside and in car parks. Some are 3-phase, some are only single phase. Some allow 7kW (x3 = 22 kW 3-phase) while others are limited to 3.3kW by the supply to the post. Motorway 'rapid' ch...

Re: Allied Peugeot Boxer charging

I'm a bit late now that the van is stripped, but I will add this for completeness and future reference. I just found this on Martin Winlow's shop site: http://evbitz.uk/EVBitz.uk/T2___CEE.html#id10 My understanding is that only some of these conversions have both single phase charging AND three phas...

Re: Allied Peugeot Boxer charging

Hello Fin

A couple of forum users have experience of the Allied vans. Hopefully one of them will be along soon to lend their experience.

In the mean time, can you post a picture of your 7 pin plug? Maybe that will help us to help you.

Re: Charging batteries

Hello Mark, and welcome Is this your battery? Yuasa DCB605-6 ET http://www.thebatteryshop.co.uk/dcb605-6et-yuasa-pro-spec-battery-6v-210ah-4505-p.asp I think any 24v lead-acid charger will do what you are asking, but I'm a bit confused at to why your 'inverter charger' has allowed the voltage to dro...
