Re: EV MPPT for E-Golf 2020

What you have is similar to James at realsolar cars. His system is 300w (limited i think by the transformers he could source, though i might have that wrong) Anyway i believe his system only works whilst the car is running for safety reasons. I have been musing this too for my env200 when camping. I...

Re: GTE battery isolation

hey big pie. do you mind me bring my pack to you in the env200 and applying your fix to the muxsan pack? I dont like the idea of taking the cells apart like the bike guy on ESphere, his soldering of the cell link left alot to be desired. (ok on a bike that you can jump off of and run away from thoug...

Re: Wanted: e-nv200 Service disconnect plug

Edit i should qualify they are not the same as the gen1 leaf ones. But any post 2013 leaf disconnect will work i.e. those with the white lifting hinge (not green like the gen1)

Re: 1992 Toyota Previa with Leaf stuff and lots of Tesla batteries

Love this build. We hired a previa to go camping from bumble campers in the uk. My boys 4 and 5 at the time loved it as the car looked like a bee.
I really like the photos of you charging next to the very pricey oem evs, makes me smile.

Hopefully this year i will have my env200 fully converted to a camper. I know its kind of cheating but i am going to make lots of mods to enhance it, promise. Anyway live near to @bobby_come_lately Tom so may bring him too if his bmw z3 is lacking the range.

Re: Garage space available in Manchester

That is rubbish news. Let me know when you find new digs with Landlords not playing the game of kicking out the tenants just to up the rent. I will help you shift your tools/ parts etc. imagine the env200 will cope well with that task.

Re: VW Touran powered by Nissan Leaf [FINISHED]

i would have said that the chademo is best at the front or rear and the type two at the side but i guess this is the path of least resistance once you have already got something else installed.
