[EVDL] Oops. A123 Cells are delicate it seems

My first foray into lithium has had a few snags. It seems it is very easy to scratch the skin of the cells thus a possible short within a cell. This was by close encounters with scissors and knives. Cutting the nickel connectors and plastic membranes of a 48v pack. I am trying to get 20 pairs

Well, the article imprecisely referred to "high speed chargers." Do you think they are concerned by everyone using level 2 at the same time ? Second, the article mentions a cul-de-sac as an example case. I think it matters a lot where people charge. If the L3 chargers are in a residential

AMEN! We need to be careful about using the term MPPT. MPPT in a solar grid-tie inverter will MAXIMIZE power from the source (solar panels) and dump it all in the infinite grid. Putting a battery in place of solar panels will do the same thing. It will MAXIMALLY load the battery and shove
