    Question ElectricGT anyone ?

    Hey guys,

    long time no post here,

    I've been thinking about swapping my 26 Leaf cells for a while, range is down, would like more.

    I've found this site:
    https://electricgt.com/

    Contacted them and started to make some rough cut simulations. Looks like I could fit 10 of their OX Drive Energy modules.
    In their 6s version, that would give me 22.2 kWh for 112 kgs, quite an improvement on range from my Leaf cells at 13 kWh (when new) and 96 kgs.
    I would pair the 10 modules 2by2 to bring the voltage down within the range of my Curtis 1238-7601 (max 125V), to get 82V when fully charged, vs my current 106V (with probably more sag than electricGT ?).

    Wondering if I would feel a significant decrease in torque on my HPEV's AC-23 , chart here for 96 V nominal:

    and here for 72V nominal
    https://www.hpevs.com/Site/power_gra...ric%20peak.pdf

    Otherwise if I connect them 10S I would end up with 164V fully charged, would need to upgrade my Curtis controller to their latest, and also upgrade my Orion BMS to get more cell taps.

    Anybody has dealt with electricGT ?

    thanks

    Looks like max 4C discharge on those Energy modules so your 10S arrangement would peak at 60A, whilst your 5S2P arrangement could only handle 120A.
    The Power modules appear to manage 8C which would be more usable but you're paying a premium at that.

    Hi,
    Unfortunately I cannot fit their Power modules, too high.
    But how do you come to 60A/120A discharge ?
    On page 6 of their spec sheet,
    https://electricgt.com/wp-content/up...y-brochure.pdf
    we read between 410 and 600 A peak amps per module depending on the configuration.
    I just need 400-600amps for a second or two.

    Sorry, you're right - I was reading that all wrong. Thought that bottom line was stats for 10 modules in parallel.
    In that case you're golden
