Re: Charging i-Miev troubles

I've charged MR BEAN successfully from my tiny solar garage apartment at 8 amps 120V via the Outback PS1, which has a floating ground 120V inverter output. As a matter of fact, only rubber was touching the ground, as I didn't even lower the trailer's tongue jack! However, it has failed to start twic...

Re: help locating a used on board charger

Yes, that's the charger that I transplanted. The motor and inverter are still in the B&R warehouse (well, at least I saw the motor). They had no clue on component naming, so I negotiated down the charger price. True-to-form, their manager sits behind a one-way mirror and that ass behind the glas...

Re: Supplemental cooling for the charger.

Hey Aerowhatt, could you post a materials list and perhaps a drawing of your fan bracket? I'd like to get that cooling mod made while the weather is still so hot. Sure I will do that as soon as I can. Some life complications at present unfortunately. What would be best perhaps a template for the br...

Re: help locating a used on board charger

1pk- congrats on the repair! Which yard in Tacoma crushed a car after radio removal only? A very nice black car was auctioned recently here and I haven't found where it landed. If you were after the blue n white car at B&R Auto Wrecking, take some solace that I got basically EVerything BUT the m...

Re: Cold weather folk..... Heated windshield?

How would that differ from a stick-on defroster grid, which is quite affordable and you 'get used to' looking through. https://www.frostfighter.com/clear-view-defrosters-list-12V-1.htm The higher-end OEM heated windshields use a finer grid, which still bothers some drivers... https://www.autoblog.co...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger, DC-DC Converter

I have access to a wrecked IMIEV that is also a 2010, but the part number on the working charger inside it is different, and the inside PCBs are totally different. I think the Wrecked IMIEV was a beginning of year 2010 model, and my friends IMIEV is End of Year 2010 model. The junkyard charger that...

More positive press Re: Most Affordable

In the vein of many early technology adopters, this owner's trip diary is a bit wordy/nerdy, but it's a nice effort to educate on how straightforward it is to take a trip far beyond an EV's stated range. https://cleantechnica.com/2018/07/29/taking-my-electric-city-car-on-a-long-distance-journey/
