AEVA (SA) Website

Thanks David, I have fixed both of the things you mentioned. They were very valid points. The webpage that Google finds is from Nick King's SA Electric Vehicle site. We'll have to ask him to change the link from the 'calendar' to our new site. Eric.

Heater-- Demister

Be cautious with the eBay solid state relays... most of them are switching AC (even when the title says DC) and those that switch DC are only transistor output instead of MOSFET output (these must be really old stock).

Bulk Li Ion purchases for 2008

Hi,
I would be in for about 40 LFP 90Ah cells and November would be fine for me. Hey, we'll get the price even lower with these quantities.

Adelaide AEVA Meeting

Mike,
I would like to attend on the 6th August. I probably won't make it for the meal. Do I still have to book with Katie? Will there be any cost for the meeting?

If you modify a circuit breaker by drilling holes and using cables to it the authorities may think that the circuit breaker may not work as it should and not allow it.

Rodney, I have just listened to a lecture from an experienced Perm-132 motor user (Rod Muller - Goolwa SA) - and he no longer recommends this motor. Apparently the carbon from the brushes builds up inside the motor and then it cooks. I was going to use this motor as well. I am now going to use D&D S...
