Re: [EVDL] LiFePo4, Hybrid Experiment
I believe that Steve Condie has stated my position below even more eloquently than I could have.
There is nothing wrong with tacking something together with available materials for experimentation.
But... it is presented as the only real world stuff on the lionev website.
I wasn't going to mention the appearance of the automotive-type battery charger and the $2.99 Harbor Freight special VOM in the slide show but... Ooops! I mentioned it.
Again, not a problem for a home-grown experiment, but shouldn't be there as the _only_ real world representation of a supposedly cutting-edge EV company.
Still... no _personal_ insult intended. Professional insult toward lionev.com intended?
I am OK with that :-)
