Re: How about an electric Sledge ?

cool the sledge (also the jet engine), but i'm surprised he gets enough traction from this small front wheel, specially when he is riding alone standing at the back, there must be not so much weight on the wheel. But he's on flat grounds, we're in the alps, and the alps do not come in the flat versi...

thanks Allen !
If i can only finish balancing this pack and get it out for a ride !

10 kwh is a monster pack to balance, especially it's been sitting there for almost 2 years.

Re: Using Regen for cooling hub motors: Refrigerants or Pelt

hi,

about peltiers,

been discussed here and there, they are not good heat sink actually. And if you make them to become good heat sink, then they become poor at producing electricity. You just can't get both. search a little around, you'll find those discussions with more details.

Re: Wow, charge in minutes vs hours

One minute !? You take a 100 Ah pack, which is not a big pack for a car, So it can deliver 100 amps for one hour. How many amps you need to feed it then to recharge in one minute ?! that's 6'000 amps for a minute, right ? or am i missing something here ? just imagine the cable and the charger :shock...
