72 volt charger now in use.

I have just received my 72v charger & wired it into my enclosure. So I now have a charger to charge all the batteries everyday & another 12v charger to give an extra top-up at the end of the week. This should keep all of the batteries in tip-top condition.

& hey, if anyone wants a 48v or 60v charger, I have them going spare. I would be willing to sell them for Β£15 each + postage.

On a slightly different note; my Scoota has now done 1600 miles (on the clock) & the motor/batteries are still going strong πŸ™‚

      Ok Johnny. I’ll check the postage cost & get back to you on monday evening. I’ll send it second class post (so it’s cheapest) if thats ok with you?

    Hi Nick,yeah,thats fine thanks

  7. nigsego Says:

    Hi Johnny.
    I have just checked Parcelforce’s website & looks like the postage will be about Β£5, so if your happy with that please email me. Also, rather then using Papal, would it be ok if you send a cheque? It’s only because Papal will charge me for the service. When you email me, I’ll give you my home address to send the cheque to. Thanx πŸ™‚

    hi, my 48v 40 w crooza won’t go batteries are full and good. lights work fine. when i turn throttle controller makes a very light click but nothing happens. do you know anybody who might be able to help

      Hi Peter.
      Sorry to hear about the problem. It think it could be 1 of the following issues:
      1. Burned out motor.
      2. Blown component inside the Speed Controller (probably a MOSFET).
      3. Cable shorting-out somewhere.
      4. Damaged cable, no longer making contact.
      5. Stuck-on break switch (although I don’t think you’d get a clicking sound if the switch was stuck).

      A good guy to speak to is Mike on the electric motoring forum (the link is on my home page).

      Checking all the wiring would be my first port of call, second would be to check the break switch’s & then try another Speed Controller.

      Could try taking the Controller apart & looking for a blown component. When the MOSFET’s go, it pretty obvious.

      Hope this helps.
