    This is from my upgraded Lectric Leopard with only 1300 miles that was parted out before its time. It's one of the original twenty Z1k beta units. It must have been pretty well sorted, because it has needed nothing. One thing that sets it apart that really helped in my car was that the...

    This came from my upgraded Lectric Leopard with only 1300 miles that was parted out before its time. It's an early version with cables exiting the front. Cannot be upgraded to digipot, display, etc. Not having those things never seemed to be an issue for me, though they would help if you're...

    Is there any interest in this charger? If there is I will dig it out and get pictures, etc. We used this to charge an electric lead-acid dragster about 5 years ago and have no use for it in our current projects (it is not CE listed and thus is not admissible in FSAE competitions). We'd be...
  4. Batteries and Charging
    I've been looking for a charger that charges off both 110VAC and 220VAC and has an adjustment for line-Amps drawn, so I won't overload a circuit if I can get a charge while traveling.

  7. Batteries and Charging
    I have a Manzanita 20 charger, a 144V pack consisting of 24 Trojan 6V batteries. I have one battery (A1) reading slightly lower than 6.25V and most of the others read 6.45. I'm not sure if I'm chargeing them fully, and when I measure the low battery (A1), while charging, it shows a higher...
  8. Batteries and Charging
    I have a manzanita charger and the instructions say to adjust it with a full battery pack, or monitor it till full. My battery pack (144V) was not fully charged when I got the charger. So, I set it up so it showed fully charged, lights flashing and all, then adjusted the voltage up a little...
