DIY electric car conversion on a budget

battery coversion

In my opinion this is a great idea, there are millions of car enthusiast out there who would love to have a go at this.

The ones that succeed will then contribute to the Worlds energy crisis.many people have tried different things and experimented with many different types of batteries and this in my opinion is a good idea, good luck to them and a great article by the Chicago Tribune.

eric roberts's insight:

This post is really an introduction about new battery technologies that are now appearing, such as start-stop batteries.

These batteries are now fitted to many new models of car and will mean the end of the DIY mechanics ability to change the battery. without a special piece of equipment to reset the cars computer.

This is a well known fact now and indeed we are selling the AGM start-stop batteries online already, so people are sill fitting their own batteries?

eric roberts's insight:

I have always been a great fan of Johnson controls, probably because i buy batteries from one of their distributors here in the UK and sell their famous Varta battery range.

The recycling part of the business is also very important and of course a legal issue and so it is always good to know that Johnson's have  set out their focus for the future.

Hyundai Has An Answer For Fuel Cell EV Haters...Make That 10 Answers - CleanTechnica

Hyundai Has An Answer For Fuel Cell EV Haters...Make That 10 Answers - CleanTechnica | All about batteries | Scoop.it
Fuel cell electric vehicles have taken their fair share of hits over the past couple of years, but auto manufacturers are still plugging away at those pesky little buggers. The question is, why?
eric roberts's insight:

I do not think that there really are people that hate the new technology, the car makers are in this massive race to be the first with a wonder technology, or a wonder car, but what about the cost of all this?

Governments are throwing billions of dollars at the problem, but in the end who can afford them?

What about the problems that these new technology cars will present in the future, when they become second and third hand, regular drivers will not be able to afford the main dealers when a problem occurs. We should be looking more in to alternative fuels to run the engine technology that we are more familiar with.
