Cheers guys, confirmation enough for me. Paul, when you say leisure batteries, I assume you mean golf cart type packs? I've just phoned a place associated with that linked company, requested batteries suitable for leisure applications and got a resounding "huh?" :lol: Will have to try some...

My boss has just completely re-wired his house, layed power to and wired an outbuilding. It cost him £200 to have the work signed off by the local BC department (they want to see first and second fix). That's interesting - I'm doing a major renovation and extension at the moment, and while the B...

I'm glad I'm blissfully unawares of it then Probably best. A more in depth description - you are no longer allowed to carry out many forms of wiring in a house unless you are "part P qualified" (i.e. an electrician that has paid the local council several £k for a piece of paper). Certa...

thanks bob, you have confirmed one of my fears, but then also maybe answered them too. My EV will be used for very short runs only (6 miles per day total) the only reason I was looking for the higher capacity was a: for those occasional "jaunts" and b: because getting it to the charging po...

Lead Acid - the choices

In my continuing research before stumping up for the Mev Pocket, I started looking at batteries today. Lead Acid will be the route forward in the short term, so was merrily looking at the various Ah car batteries for given sizes, when a colleague asked why I was using car batteries. "lead acid,...

well they have signed several large contracts so I'd be somewhat surprised (and disappointed!) if they don't work. I can however well believe they would be very expensive! My interest was more from a technical side of how they have achieved the (claimed) figures - as an amateur motor builder I like ...

Unfortunately yet to find a relative who works there that could put a word in with the bosses to let a motor go to a MOP. :lol...
