Some other nut job heating ideas:
You said it :D
1)Unless you are really driving near the limits of the controller most of the time you won't get anything worthwhile.
2)Same thing. My 30 amp PFC charger doesn't put out much heat at all.
3)That would work.
4)Or get some heated seat covers. I've got a heated massage pad that will run on 12 volts, I can drive and get a shiatsu :cool:
5)Not worth it unless you are going down a loooong hill, and still probably not worth it.

heated seat covers is a must - I come from cold country, they really work. Got one in my fiero too.

As for controller - my setup is low power, and 72V alltrax is cold (not even warm) after my 2 ride to work. I guess for 144+ systems it's different, but with such cost of convertion - might as well use electric heat and bigger pack

Ideally, i'd like to find gasoline heater from cars like VW Bug or other with air-cooled engine.
