I've been pondering doing an ev for quite some time. I think a great vehicle base would be the 4 door Geo Tracker or Suzuki Sidekick. It weighs in at 2200 lbs curb weight, has 1.6L 4cyl topping out at 95HP or so and can be had for dirt cheap. You can buy a newer one for dirt cheap, and gut it out. I...

Re: "Edge" DD hubmotor, 1500W, 35mm, Al core

Maybe look into added more mass on the inside for heat shedding capability.
Maybe aluminum blocks, not sure how you would connect them tho

Solder wick or a wimpy solder sucker will clear the holes.
I just bought 3 solder suckers from Gearbest, after going through two rolls of braid.

Are the cheap china solder suckers reusable?

You aware of the earthquake risk in Montreal?
Just listened to a talking head on the radio, and most people do not realize the earthquake potential. Which is why only 3% of Montrealers have earthquake insurance.

Re: Quick 220

One thing about the Quick 220, is I can get the 220-240V but its only 20A because the wall outlets are 120V 20A.

https://youtu.be/1hmtxWyOzIk?t=74

So yeah Lincoln welder will need more then 20A thats a given.

Gotta spend more money!

The power of choice and impulse buying.

Grocery Stores - Give the consumer too many choices and customer will not buy, give the customer a handful of choices you will get sales.

On the market now - 150 miles on 10 minute charge. But you pay for it, which nets you a 400 mile pack. Then he talks about Solid State batteries in which 500 miles for 1 minute charge.

I think a hybrid car is where its at, battery powered and i.c.e. powered. So you are not limited to range anxiety. The next move forward would be high charge rate batteries, and a range of say 50 miles on one charge would cover 75% of the commuters. For myself I wouldnt mind an ev built by me to do ...
