Re: Nucular electronics - complete kit for ev! [beta]

No. That's not what he's talking about. :) Believe me. We had a longer personal discussion about it. IF you have such a switch (which WILL be found at close inspection) and this switch will enable higher power modes then you're busted. And even if you don't have a switch and the setup menu of your ...

Re: Nucular electronics - complete kit for ev! [beta]

No. That's not what he's talking about. He talks about a secret switch to activatw ANY mode that's more powerful than what's legal. So a way to hide some settings or statistical data from spying (police officer's) eyes. Right...exactly what I said...he wants to set the 3 way speed switch and have i...

Re: Nucular electronics - complete kit for ev! [beta]

Something I would like is a limited mode. Something like this: when you turn on the ignition you are in limited mode, You can only use a few 100W, and only go 25km/h (configureable to what you want). Maby only able to use pas, throttle only for push assist up to 3km/h for example. You should not be...

I bought a few of these lights on aliexpress. The hosts are well made. Solid aluminum, glass lense and aluminum reflector. Even the chinesium XHP LED in them is pretty good. These lights are all around pretty decent and well worth the money. The only plastic part is the gromet that seals around the ...

Re: LTO Lithium Titanium Oxide (Titanate) Battery 30S (now 32S)- Seeking the Ultimate Commuter Battery

I am actively regretting going with the surplus Lipo packs I got instead of one of those LTO modules on Ebay for my bike build. 1.2kw/h in ~32# would be fine if the life of the pack is 5-10 years of commuting plus the enclosures should be easily mounted to a bike. LIPO per MAH is lighter and smalle...

Re: Build your own charger

The SE series have served me well. If I really cared, I'd use a shunt to measure current and automatically switch in/out my resistor bank to limit current. I'm using the 24v PSU's so I can get more or less 4S increments. They are rated for 25 amps. I run them just short of 30 amps without issues. Us...

Adding halls to the RV-100-Regular outrunner

The left 2 halls are soldered to 28 awg wire and it is way too large for soldering to these tiny halls. Also space between the stator teeth is very tight. I needed thinner wire for soldering to the halls no matter what. I bought some 32 awg teflon wire and that worked well. And that's what the right...

Re: My excellent adventure through some battery builds

China still has quality issues, but they have figured out how to make inexpensive smart BMS's that work.

Re: Sabvoton MQCON review and documents

Warning: If you are buying a new Sabvoton, it is a clone and prone to dying prematurely. Sabvoton closed their doors in late 2014 and everything newer than that is a Chinese knock-off. Quality in these controllers tends to be very poor and they fail often. I don't recommend buying a new Sabvoton co...

This will work too... Not all 5v PSU's will work so expect to buy a few varieties until you find ones that can. You want 2 things in a PSU: 1. adjustable output voltage that goes down to 4.1v 2. Isolated outputs. This means neither the positive or negative output wires are in any way electrically co...

A couple of questions before I hit the order button. I have a 24s 10AH lifepo4 pack, and while I generally only use 20A to 30A, I sometimes burst to 80A for a short while. Will the 100A version of this BMS be able to handle that for me or should I go for a higher amp version? https://www.ebay.com/i...

Re: Nucular electronics - complete kit for ev! [beta]

There is no delays, you can configure current ramp (dA/dt) in controller menu This ^^^^ is the answer. I saw that in the settings and it did NOT occur to me that's what I was looking at. Of course IF I had actually RTFM, I'd have known that! http://nucularelectronics.wikidot.com/en:controller-setup

Re: Random tools and EV related projects

The magnetic quadlock mount worked out really well. I have 2 now. One is in my car all the time and the other gets swapped to whatever EV I am using at the moment.

I have 5 smart phones I use for various things. They all have a steel plate on them now.

s It's probably overkill, but it sure looks cool. That should be able to dissipate 1kW easily. Let's hope the total amount of heat it needs to dissipate is much less than that. The limiting factor should no longer be heat dissipation. It would be nice to know exactly how much heat it really needs t...
