    What should I stock for you guys?

    I started selling to you guys quite a while ago (2009 maybe?) whenever I'd find good deals on used equipment. Sometimes I made a few bucks, sometimes I'd just point you to the deal. There was a demand for me assisting, so I became a distributor for HPEVS and several other suppliers/manufacturers. I licensed my business in 2011 and have been doing low volume sales. This last year, I decided to offer more motor/controller options for the DIY community. I picked up some stock of Sevcon Controllers, Chargers, DC-DC, Programming cables etc.

    So, what else would you like to see on my website? I've got some budget to work with to stock a few more items.

    I'm thinking of stocking some more items locally (rather than drop shipping or not selling at all).

    I'm looking at:
    ME1507, ME1616 and ME1304 motors
    Domino throttles
    Mating connectors for the Chargers and DC-DC
    Harness unassembled "kits" with wire, connectors and pins only
    Sevcon Clearview displays

    website (if you don't know it): www.emf-power.com

    All of the above! Any chance you have a Domino throttle now?

    Also if you had batteries you would be a one stop shop.

    Good call, Thanks for the feedback.

    I'm working on sourcing throttles as we speak.

    Added the Motenergy ME1304 motor. Stocking a few various motors (ME1507, ME1616 and ME1304).

    Also added a LEV100 contactor. It's a 12V contactor that can do 100A, up to 900VDC. Can be used for switching lower current loads like DC-DC, turning on and off the charger DC output, or turning on/off your accessories. It's cheap, sealed and they're pretty awesome.

    Other things I'll soon stock:
    Various sprockets for the motors I stock, available with various teeth.



    Concerning batteries: I don't want to get into. It's expensive to find places that ship them, and it's always been a hassle. I did it for several years and imported almost $30k worth of Headway batteries back in the day, and it just wasn't worth it for me. I'll leave batteries to those with more experience.

    ya...and the last thing a small business should do is get stuck with a bunch of inventory that's difficult to move.
    Batteries are a specialty kind of item, and lots of changes are coming... big unknowns. I may buy an LEV100 from you for the ksi circuit if I find my ssr leaks too much... good to know about that option.

    I got 5 for now, on the way. In stock next week. Also getting a few motors to have on hand for when my supplier runs out.

    Working on building stock of wiring harnesses, but for now, 2 week lead time for me to build and ship.

    Note: I have parts and wire to built 30 of them, but building as-needed makes more sense for me and my buddy.

    Charles,
    I have them on my site. I have 3 units coming within the next week or so. Price is on my site, but I usually knock a few off for you DIY guys, especially returning customers like yourself.
