Re: I need an electric TOAD....

Thread is a bit old? Any updates? I know some Canadians that use a Chevy Volt as a TOAD. They charge it at RV parks and use very little gas. :)

Greenworks L-600 6ah battery anyone?

Greenworks has a new 6ah battery that apparently fits in the same tools as the older 5ah battery. Is this a new chemistry and is anyone using this on their ev's?

Re: Why not comfort bikes?

I ride semi recumbents these days after starting out on MTB frames. I can't go back. They're both more efficient because of the aerodynamic advantage, and dramatically more comfortable. Add a motor on, and you've negated the disadvantage in riding one uphill. I don't understand why uprights are sti...

Did anything ever come of this? I've been obsessing about 2 speed gearboxes lately and remember this concept from years ago. I recall there was another member that did this as well but I can't seem to find the thread.

Re: Woodgas/Biogas vs DIY Electric

Winter is coming soon. If someone had a Freehold property they are living in, meaning no silly condo/strata rules. To reduce heating cost in the winter, a woodgas contraption going to a generator, that then powers heaters in the house. Maybe even find an electric water heater instead of gas, reduce...

Re: Woodgas/Biogas vs DIY Electric

Living in the desert southwest where wood is not very plentiful. I do my part by burning scrap wood for cutting my heating bill in winter. I have a very efficient stove, but gathering enough free wood just to heat it is a PITA. I just use my wood stove to heat from dead tree limbs and grapevines.

Re: interrupted charging, top up vs continous to full

One data sheet I looked up shows the cell to be .2c ? That's a pretty weak discharge for battery. So lower c rate cells sag more than higher c rate cells.

No battery expert for sure, but my old lifepo4 pack was always more stronger through discharge than lipo.

And it's double the horsepower... But to keep it in budget I would look for a used 1000w scooter on craigslist and soup it up.

Re: Scored a converted E-Bike for $75!

Nice score. My best find was a 50 buck ford think e bike. It had a 24v brushed mid drive, which liked to eat controllers. Original controller was fried, and it fried another right way. You had to ride it very careful, avoiding amps spikes. I keep trying to find a broken trek, or bbso2, but in my to...
