  1. DIY or kit for a Portable Mode 2 charging cable?

    General Charging Discussion
    Yes it's possible to DIY. You need to think carefully about what safety functions to incorporate, beyond the basic mode PWM Comms signal
  2. Range vs mi/kwh

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I guess you have checked tyre pressures, tracking, dragging brakes? Can you get someone else to drive while you observe spydata?

    Sounds like perfect car for islands, maybe that why several were imported into Orkney.
  4. The zero-carbon fantasy

    General EV Discussion
    Yeah, autospelling! 🤪
  5. The zero-carbon fantasy

    General EV Discussion
    There is a whole bunch of reasons other than zero carbon to see mass adoption of BEVs as a positive (lower carbon on a life cycle basis is good too), including:- 1/Reduced local emissions including brake dust 2/Rebalancing world geopolitics 3/Potential to reduce view of cats as a "male" symbol...

  7. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    With the overall 3 fold gross reduction in daily max consumption????, it would theoretically possible to achieve the same COST saving by using night storage and Octopus Go. OK not not nearly as flexible as your setup. The phase change heat storage, no doubt heated electrically on an off peak...
  8. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    For three phase, you will have a lot bigger DISTRIBUTION board and almost all the metering and switchgear stuff will NOT be bog standard cheap domestic stuff.
  9. Single-speed Automatic

    General EV Discussion
    For the non technical reader, the term "single speed automatic" is not a BAD term as it does convey the FACT it can be driven on an automatic license ( legally defined term) and the fact that there is no coordination of clutch and throttle required. So not technically correct but it kinda works...
  10. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    Whoa enthusiasts. Keep in mind 3 phase is NOT standard for UK domestic so you will encounter some additional costs even once you have DNO bit done (metering, wiring, switchgear etc) If it's just an ordinary urban house and a large rural property/mansion, I seriously doubt there is any real...
  11. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    Is that rather large 136kWh number reduced by 3 with heat pumps, or has your insulation made an even bigger difference ( or have you just hardened up):oops:
  12. Should I purchase a removable battery product or fixed battery product??

    General Charging Discussion
    Tevhnonerd, is this thread market research, lobbying or some other special interest? Just curious.

  14. MINI in the winter?

    Mini
    Is in tho Oponeo website, search by size just using 205/60r17. And then select winter under type. Start with car tyres.
  15. MINI in the winter?

    Mini
    Gordon, using the Oponeo UK website and searching by size and winter I got 4 quality brand choices in stock for immediate delivery. 3 were a higher load rating but not runflat or van tyres or anything silly. Again ignore the spread rating that's the H for the time being.
  16. Eliminating the Double-Beep when Charging starts

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Andy, getting back to your original investigations on the Mainline limiting control by digital potentiometer, is there no in J1779 a defined low limit error state. Is the basic problem that the Ampera doesn't just stop charging at this low state, the equivalent of less than 6A but just switched...
  17. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    Three phase is good for all machines but for little ones and woodworking there are lots of workarounds. Speed control is pretty easy with single phase. I guess if you are turning up whole tree trunks or running a sawmill, 3 phase would be mandatory🤗Mini workshop sounds more like light joinery...
  18. 3kW Charging cable with built in Energy meter

    General EV Discussion
    Can you advise what is the purpose? Does it need to meet any metering standard. If all you need is an approximate idea, a stopwatch will do the job.
  19. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    By definition, your DNO will not be your electricity supplier or meter provider. These are all separated services even if you have a supply from one of the companies that bears a similar name.
  20. 3 phase for a house renovation

    General Charging Discussion
    From what you describe, a single phase 100A should be suitable, maybe a bit of load control if you fit electric shower(s). The DNO is the company the runs the electricity wires and transformers downstream from the main grid (Distribution Network Operator). They have a fixed geographical monopoly.
