Re: Under the Cover--an Inside Look at a 2018 On-Board Charger (OBC2)

kiev, thank you very much for the photos of the new OBC/dc-dc innards. Any comments whether this new design has improved the component thermal management? I was always disturbed that the case of this module becomes hot despite the the liquid cooling system. This is indeed great news. Still made by N...

Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

GdB, thank you for adding the information to this thread. I took the liberty of editing your post to make the links visible even though you have the text nicely covered. The fourth link shows the related hardware.

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

So, this coming Friday there's a Climate Strike-related event at the local high school, and a few of us have been invited to show off our EVs.

Re: Battery Degradation

I have a 2012 MiEV, bought in summer 2013, with about 88,000mi and get a summer range of about 40mi driving country roads and in a small town. The range dropped abruptly after about 40,000mi and I started to have a dead 12V battery, if I didn't use it for a couple of days. Over the years I have swa...

Re: Using a second pack in parallel

Gary12345, points acknowledged. You might note that jray3 has performed many EV conversions, owns a number of such vehicles, and has worked with high school students for years on such projects, so is tuned in to the safety aspects of such endeavours.

Re: Admin: Unable to Access this Site

Hadn't been able to access this forum for the past day, and the feedback I just received is: "...turns out the server update
caused an issue ... had to change PHP versions...". Nice to see us back 'on the air' again.

On-Board Charger (OBC) Warranty Extended!

Really wonderful news! I can now stop composing the letter I was planning on sending to Mitsubishi Corporate.

Hope our friends across the world will also benefit.

Note: I had moved the above posts over from the OBC Poll thread because this topic merits its own highly-visible flag.

Re: Drivetrain transplant

I-miev + motorcycle... They transplanted everything. Had problems, if there is no vacuum pump, ABS etc... 1kaspars, thank you very much for linking us to this video.
