    Any galaxy-brain solutions to fast-charging ebikes, motorcycles, and light cars at level 2 chargers in the US?

    Well, jeez, that's both much more terrifying and potentially useful than I anticipated. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

    Any galaxy-brain solutions to fast-charging ebikes, motorcycles, and light cars at level 2 chargers in the US?

    So, let's say you want to squeeze all the juice out of a quick public EV charger visit to make a light vehicle work for long-distance travel. Maybe you can charge your battery at 2C or more and be within specs by a very safe margin? Just for the sake of discussion, let's make up a touring ebike...

    Spare axles plus logs and a hub motor: walking-speed RC car that can move stacks of 4x8 plywood? A flat robot mule? Sorta??

    Ok, extremely simplistic model to go with the 'how about tracks?' idea. There are chains or belts, and some sort of suspension (old scooter/moped rear shock at each corner?), and an actual...rack, in the middle, missing, of course. 6'6" sasquatch (my 'pedaling a bike' scale mannequin of self...

    Spare axles plus logs and a hub motor: walking-speed RC car that can move stacks of 4x8 plywood? A flat robot mule? Sorta??

    Research update: I'm gonna get a Bosch iBooster to do the brakes. Seems like the Honda ones are the easiest to find. I don't fully understand the intricacies of the sensor in the pedal mechanism yet, but it seems like an excellent way to use the existing calipers/rotors and drums/shoes on the...

    Spare axles plus logs and a hub motor: walking-speed RC car that can move stacks of 4x8 plywood? A flat robot mule? Sorta??

    What I *want* to build is just an electric tractor out of old truck parts, but I don't have 50kw brushless money, nor do I have '1500 pounds of steel tubing and angle' money, nor even 'an absurd number of kilowatt hours in lithium titanate cells' money, but I do have some junk laying around. I...

    Hacking the Bafang display IO -- new independent research?

    Ooh! Extremely cool. Thanks! Also, wow, I don't think I've ever had such a strong "and that's why you should use a Tongsheng on the next ebike," epiphany than just now. The BBS02 little brother to the BBSHD fat bike can wait, I wanna get into that open source community.

    Hacking the Bafang display IO -- new independent research?

    You actually put the last piece of the puzzle where it needed to go with the UART interface. Definitely sounds like hiding a display somewhere and making my own alternative buttons and lights makes the most sense. Also, a fun 'this steampunk electric bike is in a holodeck program and I'm...

    Hacking the Bafang display IO -- new independent research?

    So, funny story: I have a 500C display with a BBSHD motor. Worked great, got left in the rain, the LCD layer died from water incursion but the backlight is totally fine (but useless *and* too bright!), and all of the buttons for changing PAS level and on/off work perfectly. I don't know how much...
