The 2007 EV Conversion Workshop is a VW Vanagon to electric

Comments Add

As of the 2007 EV Conversion Workshop, and by Bucks County Renewables the help of the Energy Justice Jenny Isaacs has gotten a group made up mostly of who will be converting a 1985 Vanagon from gasoline to electric. We told you about way back in March. and now we can follow up story by directing you over to a made by Jenny to update on the progress.

The plan is to make this a zero-emissions vehicle by offsetting the spent while charging the by purchasing wind energy. If you like to check out the vehicle it has been completed, they to show it off at RiverFest, in Frenchtown NJ on 1 — 3 and at the Pennsylvania Alternative Festival in Kempton PA, Sept 21 23. We certainly wish Jenny and the ten team the best!


HELP ME! I want to convert a model Vanagon to electic, but i help. No one around where i knows anything about (Fort Wayne, Indiana) of using batteries (that power by 5% monthly wether you use or not) i want to look using a Capacitor anyone any ideas or know where to go let me


Ultra-capacitors have 3 — unlimited charge/discharge undamaged by full discharge, and it is to determine state of charge measure the voltage). But even the ultracapacitors have several that make them a bad for main power storage in

The energy density is much than lead acid meaning a greatly reduced at the same weight. Cost per stored is much higher other battery types.

The voltage drops linearly discharge, requiring a sophisticated converter for operation, and that to the cost and reduces efficiency.

The discharge rate of capacitors is than batteries, the charge away while sitting

Capacitors aren’t ready to cars, but they can be useful as a buffer for other types of absorbing and releasing numerous power surges that reduce battery lifespan.

If you are on a budget, and can live with and performance limitations, go with discharge type lead batteries — they last as long as other but don’t cost as much,

If you prefer more range and go with NiMH or Li-iron cells. NiMH has nearly 3x the density of lead acid, and 4x to 5x the energy density. Cost be higher, of course.

Standard using cobalt oxide are high energy cells, 7x the energy density of lead but require sophisticated temperature and battery managment to prevent Leave those to experts, the engineers at Tesla Motors.

The Li-titanate cells from Nano have excellent life and longevity, has good resistance, and are very powerful, but density is similar to Li-phosphate and the is very high, so only if got a really big budget. Come to of it, with their high and very high cycle Altair Nano cells also make a very buffer battery for other of cells.
