    Hi all, thank you for letting me join this community. Have you heard of EVCS? They operate here in LA but have locations in Oregon, Washington, and the Bay Area. I just recently got one of their ads and signed up for their unlimited subscription plan and I've been pleasantly surprised by it...
  3. Batteries and Charging
    Hi everyone, I am working on a custom project and want to buy some pins, male and female, to suit the 12 gauge (6mm^2) cables used in EV chargers. I can't seem to find anywhere that sells just the pins. I am prepared to crimp/solder them myself but everywhere I look just wants to sell me an...
  4. Batteries and Charging
    Last week, the salvage 2014 Leaf arrived for my Superbeetle conversion. The front is pretty bashed (radiator support almost touches the drive stack) but the car can move around on its own. When I plug in the trickle charger that came with it, the car starts beeping a lot and all three charge...

  6. All EV Conversions and Builds
    Good morning everyone! I know this is an odd, and potentially unrealistic, conversion and I figure I should lay down some basic expectations. My friends and I all have 2018-2019, high performance, sleds so I am not looking to break any land speed records, or reach unattainable ranges. In fact...

    Hi, I want to start an EV conversion on our 1987 Nissan Patrol. But charging is just a blur to me, I get that home chargers use the connector of your choosing, but can I just buy a certain plug, and a charger off of evshop.eu (which I found to be a supplier in Europe) and plug it in at (for...

  11. Batteries and Charging
    Hello all. I work in a data center, and we recently replaced our UPS systems. As part of this project, I was given the opportunity to take the old UPS/ATS system home. Unfortunately, the system was a 3-phase 480 volt system and there was no means of connecting it to my 220v home power. I did...
  12. Batteries and Charging
    I have previously purchased a Delta Q QuiQ Charger, and I am now in the market for some lithium packs. I was looking at the LG Chem batteries, which have a nominal voltage of 60.8v and have a 45Ah capacity, so about 2.6kW. The QuiQ charger is a 72v designed for lead acid, but the chemistry can...
  13. Batteries and Charging
    Hey everyone! I am currently working on a conversion and spotted these packs for sale on eBay. Now I know the dollar per kilowatt isn't that great on these, but I am trying to keep the costs low, so I plan to start out with a few of these for a proof of concept and then upgrade down the road...
  14. Technical Discussion
    The alternators of the hybrid drive train I'm making will be using a voltage and amperage that is not very common (48V @ 145-155 A). As a result, it is difficult to find a charger which I can use in this system (since most chargers are meant to be powered from the electricity grid (so 230V or...

    Hi everyone, I recently purchased a 444cell Tesla Battery Module (~5KWhr). Might anyone recommend which charger to get (that plugs into US 120VAC wall socket)? If you have experience in charging these battery modules, what's the time it'll take to charge the battery given the amp output from...
