I remember reading an article and brochure for the VX-1FCe, a NiMH battery powered Vectrix with a Parker 500W H2 (or Methanol) Fuel Cell in the helmet compartment.
OK.. that's old news. I happen to be pawing my way around the service manual and noticed connectors for... guess what... a Fuel Cell!
The brochure says the 500W fuel cell continually charges the battery, even while driving, doubling or tripling the range. How would that work? Especially when doing regen braking.
I wonder if the Vectrix's controller and charger can still handle it? I mean I once had a factory rep tell me that you could program a vectrix via bluetooth...
I have access to some cool fuel cells in the 500W to 1500W range at good prices. The cogs and wheels are turning! Imagine 60Ah LiFePO4 batteries and a 1Kw fuel cell. Might be good for a couple hundred miles at speed...?
But can it be done safely. I'd hate to get blasted into low earth orbit and burn up upon reentry!
