used Curtis 1400e dc-dc 96v

I am upgrading to 120v and need to swap out this nice little dc-dc. Its about 2 years old, no problems.... 300 watts continuous, 375 peak. Plenty for typical small EV. retails for $410, I'll sell for $350+$15 S&H anywhere in the US.




*** SOLD 10/17/2012 ***

ok, I still have this thing.... and it looks like have to compete with the cheapo Chennic prices even though this is a way more solid unit. Anyway, in the interest of liquidating, I'll drop price to $150, shipping included in US.

It is a very nice unit and nice price, but my friend has decided to go for 120v. I'm doing 144v. If you could find a way to modify it for a higher voltage I'm sure it would sell right away. Or if someone had a 120v system they might be able to just tap into the pack at 96v. It would be a bit harder on the cells in the 96v string and probably shorten their life slightly compared to the other cells, but maybe not too bad if it's not meant to be a daily commuter. I wouldn't do it with lithium cells, but lead acid could probably handle it. However, I haven't investigated it, just my opinion.
