I'm wondering if anyone has looked into the DC Boost converter since I'm resuming work on that.
First, I'd like to thank thingstodo & paul for their debugging tenacity!

Sorry, but I've been a bit out of the loop 'cause of an internet shut-down (1 month!! Don't use Excede or Wildblue if you like your sanity...) Also, I installed a new motor in a '97 4runner 'cause of a blown head-gasket.

ANYWAY... I've been thinking more about the boost converter idea. My initial impression was to KISS, thus just build a higher voltage battery pack. However, a new project has my interest - one of those cool old ****light**** English sports cars. To do it justice, everything must be light ( "build in more lightness" ). I've come to realize that a boost converter+battery pack will be lighter than a big battery pack.. - yes, I'm a bit slow.

So, yes, I'm interested - I think the idea has some great potential.
