I am a newbie into EV conversions, in order to gain some EV experience i am converting an already electric Mahindra Reva-i from Lead Acid Batteries to Li-ion using two Tesla modules for a total of 250Ah at 48V. (11kwh).

Something this guys did:

I am trying to keep as many stock parts as possible, i thing i can get away only changing batteries and charger, keeping the original controller and DC motor.

Two quick questions:
1. What is the fastest that i can have those two Tesla model S modules safely charged? What charger would you recommend me for that matter?

2. Also, which would be some of the cheaper charging options to buy, and how long would i take to have them charged using it? Thank you all for supporting this newbie.

the link doesn't work.

Tesla modules: without cooling no more than 1/4C, so 50A

cheap chargers: 48 volt power supply, much used in telecom systems.
