OK, please please please please don't try this at home, but someone who put a controller together decided to run his S10 truck at 192v to extend the range!!! We are talking about the 200v components here. He's gone 300 miles so far without any problems. His commute is about 36-38 miles per day. Around 6-8 miles of stop and go in town driving, and 30 miles at 60 mph. I don't know what to say. Fully charged, it has to be way over 200v. Ok, the capacitors are rated for 250v surges, but what about the mosfets?!
