  1. Fuse Box Layout

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Spent some time yesterday trying to hardwire a dashcam only for the hardwiring kit to be faulty. During the install I noticed that the online manual doesn't list all the fuses in place or fuses that don't currently exist in my car. Does anyone have a resource for the full fuse layout or a...
  2. EV battery (and drive train) for off grid camper

    Off Topic and Banter
    there are a few people who have torn apart EV batteries for use in off-grid campers/RV's, I was wondering whether you could transplant the whole of a gen1 leaf or i-miev drivetrain into something like a sprinter van including the battery, charger and motor attached to the engine working in...
  3. Charge point install preperation

    General Charging Discussion
    I'm going to be getting a rolec 7kw charge point installed soon, though I've not contacted them yet. The distance between the main CU and the garage is 30m. However the charge point location will need a further 5m of cable. The garage currently has power to it, but the cable is only 4mm and...

  6. Anyone tried 12A "Granny" charging?

    General Charging Discussion
    I've just finished building my own 32A capable EVSE, but will be using at 16A until I change cars. However I thought I'd run it as a "Granny" charger for time being and have set it up for 12A. After the first 2hr charge have checked currents and thermal increases of cables, DIN modules and most...
  7. Custom Battery Project Progressing

    General EV Discussion
    My drive for work is 60 miles round trip. I have not been able to charge at work and my maximum range was 62 miles. This ran the battery down too far to leave a safe reserve of energy. I needed a little extra power to get around and to run lights, heater, etc. In the photo you see a...
