Re: Does this look like electrical failure?

If this was transported through the US mail, that is mail fraud and a serious Federal offense. Many countries have similar laws. I would send a strongly worded written document stating your intention to pursue a criminal prosecution involving prison time, which you will forgo provided she submit a ...

Re: Does this look like electrical failure?

You wouldn't believe the elaborate story she concocted with so much detail. Its crazy. I did some research and she has a dog that is an aggressive chewer. That also explains why the paper sticker on the unit had some moisture damage (from dog saliva and cleaning attempt). And indentations from teet...

Does this look like electrical failure?

A customer returned this charger I sold them, claiming it overheated and melted the wires. I opened the case and it looks flawless inside. Is it me or do these wires look like they were cut? I just don't see melted insulation anywhere. This customer has said some conflicting things about how they us...

A123 and Headway LiFePo4 pack, 72v (USA, central TX)

Wholesale/distributors in the US?

I'm trying to find distributors (not retail sales) for small ev related parts. I've spent a lot of time searching online and I really can't find much other than retail, and of course buying directly from the manufacturer (which doesn't help my current situation). When I search wholesale distributors...

Re: Non-China built chargers?

It's just simple ~36v 2amp model.
The current issue with China is the tariffs and delayed lead time due to factories playing catch up after being shut down.

Non-China built chargers?

I'm looking for a low power charger that is not manufactured in China. The ones in the US are pretty much all high end and not for the small ev market (no surprises there).
It doesn't need to be made in the US but I'm trying to stay away from China.
Thanks,

Re: Anyone use fairings? Why not...?

Hey stateofstatic... thanks for that post. i'm impressed that even the ATB-ZZ ( one of the most least aerodynamic looking of their designs ) does so well. -6mph at 45mph turns a ~3000w load into a <2000w load at that speed. Or allows you to perhaps hit 50mph on the same power. You'd think it would ...

Re: Anyone use fairings? Why not...?

The ZZ Thriller looks too big, particularly with the leg coverage. A smaller version of the OS ZZ, combined with aerobars to the get rider lower seems like it would be the best setup for most. https://www.zzipper.com/Products/prod_upright.php My two designs, the first was the ebike and the 2nd(white...

New electric motorcycle shop in Austin TX

I just took a test ride on one of the electric motorcycles at #zbikezatx in Austin tx. They are a great value at $4300 for the base model. Perfect city transportation. Good quality components and fill a much needed gap below the higher end well known brands like Zero. They use one of the large QS mo...

This project is long gone. I gave up on it shortly after my last post. Too much deal with on mixing moped and bike parts. I'm back to just using the ebike. Can't stand being stuck in traffic and enjoy using bike only infrastructure to get away from the stinkies.
