Re: Gas Cans --> Electric Mowers

So, has anyone tried mounting a battery pack and inverter on an inexpensive plug-in mower? :roll: :mrgreen: :geek: I tried it with my Black and Decker plug in mower. It's an 18" mulching mower and these mowers have an universal type electric motor that has a rectifier. So I did an experiment a...

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

I got to drive a bolt at work last week. It's a good all around road car.

Re: Charging Down Route 66

I tried 3 different photo sharing sites and gave up. I joined Facebook and joined the Route 66 Electric Car Club. You can find most of our best photos there. Link? I went looking, but am Facebook illiterate after giving up in disgust a few years ago at the randomness and inanity of the majority of ...

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

After slow charging from two bars EVBatmon says I have a 36Ahr battery! An increase of 1 Ahr. At least I'm going in the right direction. :mrgreen:

The good thing is the new battery pack seems to last as long as my old pack or better.

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

Hmmmm, still says 35 Ahr and RR shows only 62 miles after a full charge. I usually get over 70 with original pack.

This weekend I'll bring it down to 2 bars and try a level one charge.

Well okaaaay, 35Ah. :?

I haven't given it a full charge yet. Maybe that has something to do with it? I'll charge it up tonight and try again tomorrow. 8-)

Re: Charging Down Route 66

I did a googlemaps search of Shamrock, Texas and up popped a great photo of an old gas station green and white in color. Who knows how old it could be.

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

Boy, that was quick! Have you done a EVBatMon capacity measurement on your brand-new battery? Yes, 2 weeks and a day was pretty quick. Oakland Mitsubishi was great! I have to thank those guys. They received the battery sometime last week and started the change out Friday morning. By Monday they wer...
