Great forum you have here!
I just bought an EVT 4000 and I'm wondering how best to deal with it.
I want to do a 2 x 18 km commute to work, and a 2 x 15 km commute to my girlfriends' place. Often, I'll also go straight from one place to the other, which makes it 2 x 33 km.
After reading a lot on this forum and elsewhere, I have 2 main concerns: will I always make the 33 km at a decent speed, even in winter? And how can I make sure the battery life will be reasobable?
Do I need battery equalizers? If so, how come an equalization between batteries helps, even if the eq between individual cells is left entirely to the charging process?
I'm considering the option of installing the 60V mod, and then sticking to economy mode, to prolong battery life. Would that be a good option in your opinion?
Crusher300 contributed some very useful real-world numbers. He mentioned his mileage in real traffic, going always full throttle etc. Could anyone come up with some figures like that for a stock 48V model with the batteries already in use for a year?
Are there any other major points for me to think of?
Thank you very much!
