Re: Modularity and electric vehicles

There's quite a few threads / projects where people have used toolpacks (intact) as ebike (and other) power sources, but it'll take some poking around to find them, as they don't all use a consistent terminology to make searching easy. But they'll give you some idea of how people have already done ...

I believe your problem may be with the size and amount of animated gifs this site has. If a significant amount of people have issue with this, what i could do is edit the animated gifs and tune their rate of speed down a little.

You could try disabling smooth scroll ( example ) or hardware acceleration. Mine's slow too. Scrolling feels like it's got a 50lb weight on it. I just use Firefox inste...

The large round uparrow icon at hte lower right of every post is a backtotop button.
I cannot see this 'back to top' button while using a mobile browser (Android Chrome).
I can't see it either. Tried with old iPad Safari and recent desktop Chrome & Firefox.

Re: Crimping connectors

Crimp sleeves basically do the same job as butt splice with the difference that the crimp sleeve connects the wires in parallel and from googling is intended for non electric big diameter wires.

Re: Blue EVG bike stolen in Orange County

The thief is probably going to want a charger. You could ask an ebike store in the area, like Electric Bicycle Center in Fullerton, to be on the lookout for anyone asking about a charger for em3ev. There's the Los Angeles Electric Bicycle Club on Facebook. You could join them and post a message there.
