    I wonder how switchable those Headways would be? If space on my GPR-S permitted, would it be possible to simply swap out my 24 60AH TS LiFePo's for 6 or 7 of these Headway batteries? I have a...

    Richard, sorry about the GPRS. I have been biting my tongue, but now that you are saying this thing is a complete bust, I want to suggest to you that you take that damned BMS off the bike. The bike...

    Well to me it does. I get on the LATimes boards all the time and post against a mob of bone-heads who not only show nothing but contempt for all the EV's that can't match up with ICE's, but are even...

    I can't think of a single thing wrong with what you have said in your posts. But I also don't think that building an "amazing" EV will be enough until EV are amazing enough to match an ICE vehicle...

    I don't understand, from our point of view especially, how anybody could "hit the ball out of the park" producing an EV? I haven't been reading this forum as thoroughly lately as I usually used to...

    Well the keys here fot you, Harlan, are 1) once a month and 2) known in advance. That can be good for you, but folks who might want to be more spontaneous and perhaps exceed the range more than once...

    The primary problem with the Volt is price. The design is fairly ingenious. I often find myself really resenting the 40-mile (at most) range on my GPRS. Even a Leaf is limited in range. But we...

    OK, thanks for your answer. So then I would re-frame the question: wouldn't this be the more elegant and efficient time/place to put a bms -- right when the battery is manufactured? Wouldn't it...
  10. Sticky: Bms

    One thing I wonder about from time to time, as a guy who has no BMS at all on his GPRS: why even make a battery that can put put so much energy that it can damage itself? Why not, for instance, make...

    Richard, this is just from a brief conversation with Harlan over the weekend, and maybe I didn't pick up what he was saying exactly right. My understanding was not that TS had quit making batteries,...

    My understanding was that for a while TS would custom-make batteries that had their vents re-positioned to allow installing them on their sides. But now, I am given to understand that TS doesn't...

    The thing that struck me about vectrix was that they put a lot of painstaking effort into making their bikes, and all the components were top notch as far as I could tell. Except for the most...

    If I had sunk a lot of money into Zero as an investor, sacking Saiki is certainly the first thing I would do. I mean, I have millions of dollars on the line, and the company totally gives the...

    So Chef, thanks. I'm getting the impression form your post that the danger from these batteries is not from toxins but from explosion -- is that right?

    Leaky fork

    My right fork seems to be leaking oil. I guess what I am wondering is how difficult will it be to find someone competent to make the call on whether a seal needs to be replaced or the entire fork...

    Richard, there was actually more to my battery's story than bloating and stinking and leaking -- it was one of 4 batteries that my cell logger caught pooping out in the middle of my hill road home. ...
