Hi EVerybody;

A few Questions this AM. IS there, Virginia, a K and W Charger Co,
anymore, of Marion Iowa, I think it sez on the beat up box? I have one of
theirs, works fine, so far, been able to FIX it. But, what if?? Are they
still in biz? I googled the hell out of them, didn't see anything. Sigh.

Whatthehell happened to Bill D. and the Killer, or Kill A Cycle?? It was
on the Darwin Awards? Sheesh! Nothing on the List?Been pretty quiet on the
List of late?

Other news, tooting Dave Oliveria's horn a little. He got his Ranger up
an' going!! Another EV gets on CT roads! Slowly we are overcomeing? Ha Ha,
in another few thousand years we can push the gas rigs off the roads at this
rate! IF there are roads and a nation for them, by then???

Seeya

Bob.

Hello Bob,

Here is a trick to find something, is just type in the first letter, by
typing the following sentence in your search engine:

User most wanted with letter K.

This will take you to a WEB address which is call Shop Butler.

Then click on the highlighted sentence :

User most wanted with letter K.

You will then see a long list of words that start with the letter K.

Instead of paging through all the K's which will take you forever, just type
the sentence exactly how it is printed below in the search bar on that page:


K & W Battery Charger Company


You will now see only 7522 pages of K & W battery chargers.

Shopbutler seems to be broken, because when I enter
anything starting from the list of entries with the
letter K then I always get 0 results from the database
but if I enter anything from there, I always get 7522 results
and they have nothing to do with K & W.

BTW, searching for "K & W Battery Charger" (with quotes)
brought up only Bob Brant's book; Googling for
"K & W Charger" delivers 10 pages about EVs with familiar
discussion contributers such as Lee and Bill Dube'.

Searching for just "K & W" brought up many, many companies
in all kinds of industries, from model airplanes and tires
to cafetaria and drive-in. Nothing about battery chargers.

I tried the EV Album, because that lists a lot of equipment
for EVs with manufacturers, but no K & W page.
In fact, it seems that Chargers are not listed at all.

Maybe one of the long time members know what happened to K & W

Success,

Brian Klosterman is (to my knowledge) the
owner/builder of K&W chargers. While I no longer use
a K&W, I'll look through the old paperwork _if_
searching for the owner doesn't turn anything up.

The only place where I can find any details from a
Brian Klosterman is in the EVDL archive on CREST:
http://www.crest.org/discussion/ev/200210/msg00932.html
Apparently in Oct 2002 his email address was:
[email protected]

You can try if that still works, no guarantees....

Yes, when I first got my old escort, it had a K & W that I had to send to him for repair. He was reasonable and quick. But, I have long since lost the address (though I have a copy of the manual on my website).

His website (didn't have anything in the address about chargers or "K&W") disappeared a few years ago. I thought he'd gone out of business.

Brian Klosterman is (to my knowledge) the
owner/builder of K&W chargers. While I no longer use
a K&W, I'll look through the old paperwork _if_
searching for the owner doesn't turn anything up.

Would you still drive your car if the tailpipe came out of the steering wheel? Are you saving any gas for your kids?

The Marion city town manager is a nice guy. He gave me a phone number
for a Margerite Klosterman, who apparently is the owner of the phone
number that was attached to the businesss.

Anyone wants it, email me privately :)

In the old manual I have the address is :

K&W Engineering, Inc.
3298 County Home Road
Marion, Iowa 52302

I believe the principal is / was Brian Klosterman. Here's an old EVDL
message with contact info which may or may not work :

The manual for the K&W BC-20 is available in the EVDL Library :

KTA Services of Ken Koch fame was the distributor for the K and W charger.
But, alas, Ken's website no longer list the K & W charger. I spoke to
Ken today and he states the K & W charger was discontinued about six
months ago.
