I’m converting a Land Rover defender using Tesla battery packs ( 5) Curtis motor and controller and emus bms.
im mocking up the batteries and want to get them charging. I sourced all the parts from electric motorsport in Calafornia and am struggling to get the emus bms to talk to my phone or laptop. Has anyone any experience of this as hell would be greatly appreciated. I’m near Manchester Uk and am an experienced diy mechanic, I’ve built several kit cars and car ice conversions but this is my first attempt at EV conversion.

Sorry you didn't get any response on your previous thread, when you were just starting on this project. I can't help, knowing nothing about this specific BMS, but perhaps moving your thread to the Batteries and Charging section would get it more suitable attention.

Apologies to go slightly off topic, but can anyone chime in on the possibility of using a donor Nissan Leaf to electrify a Series II Land Rover (3 door short wheel base? I would love to implant a Tesla motor and batteries, but budget is limited. I was thinking of using a wrecked Nissan Leaf instead in order to manage budget. I am looking for range of around 100-150 kms. Any guidance or thoughts would be much appreciated, especially on the issue of whether the Nissan Leaf motor will have enough power to move the Land Rover along at a decent speed.

Even the least powerful Leaf motor (the original 80 kW) is substantially more powerful than any of the engines offered in the Series II... so yes, if installed with proper gearing, properly controlled, and supplied with an adequate battery, the Leaf powertrain will move the Land Rover along at least as well as the original engine. Whether or not that is a "decent speed" is a matter of opinion.
