Re: My driveway is getting busy...

Surely in the Blingo's case a simple graph can be drawn up which compares initial cost then cost over miles. The electric Blingo can be easily referenced by gasoline and diesel versions over similar age/miles. Would make a good display.... Then you can add what its like to drive and own as a clinche...

Re: EV Charger Maps

I'd suggest adding in camping spots that can cater for caravans therefore able to supply a 13 amp socket for a night. This would amplify the number of recharge points greatly. Many B&B's are able to do this too. I don't think this aspect of the business is very forward thinking or active enough....

Re: Cheshire/Manchester - 16th of the Month - Pub-meet

As I'm new around and very interested. I hope to be there. I'm in the Wigan area.

Years ago I toyed with the idea of contactors so I could wire 2V (FLA) cells into 2V(6P), 4V(3P), 6V(2P) and the full 12V like a four speed gearbox.

Obviously, the more cells the more options for voltages but divisibility must be maintained to run all the cells all the time.

I do know of one supplier who's prices are beyond crazy.
