The idea is to be able to drive to EVCCON next year rather than tow the car. Or to the beach or where ever. The idea is NOT to worry about finding a charge station. Since there are very few available fast charge stations and ones that are voltage specific for the average DIY build, taking your own fast charger is the ONLY way to do this. Im looking at a good 60 mile range with the little Bug between charges.
I had to fix a few unexpected little things on the build and now very close to getting this sucker on the road. I also now have 60 CALB SE 100ah cells for a 19kWh pack. Should do nicely. I will set my controller for 120 volts for driving at first and 500 battery amps. I am not sure how well the Kostov will handle higher voltages than 120 volts as recommended by Kostov.
