    Hi, I'm using an "OnBoard" EV charger from , in the Mazda B2200 NiCad conversion, and in the Fiero, LiFePO4 conversion. The regulators in both projects are built/sold by a friend in our EV Club. They can handle something like 5amps of charge current, and are very robust. If you look at the photo set with the "Bat-Guard" regulators, the website he sells from is listed there. Check them out at:

    Hi Saleh,

    RE your message; I'm not working on any brushless hub motors although I do have an interest in them and will look at the again in the future. My current project is converting an MR2. Can I suggest that you may want to stay away from PESWiki, there's a lot of pseudoscience and idiot talk. Most wiki posters on PESWiki are trying to find over-unity / perpetual motion technology and don't have a clue what they're talking about.

    What do you want the motor for? F&P smart drive washing machine motors are good for about 2kW each and can be driven from model aircraft BLDC motor controllers. If you need more power, start with a smart drive motor and base a DIY design on it with heavier windings and stronger rare earth magnets. It won't be the most optimised or extreme efficiency but it'll do the job. There's a guy in Auckland who sells smart drive motors on trademe for $35 a piece. He has wool fadges full of them!

    I live in Tauranga, not Auckland.

    In the process of designing up my first EV. Should be fairly straight forward though an interesting challenge with lots of readings and research, so i'm not going to under estimate the task.

    Keen on at least 250-350Km range, so i'm not going to be cheap at all in making it as good as it can be, as it's going to be my ride for 10+years.
