I was just about to ask for an update. I agree with Kevin on the CALB CA series cells. I have 100 of the 100Ah cells as well. If you take the time to bottom balance (takes a while to get it right) then you will have a long and happy relationship with your battery pack. Save the charger for last. Reserve a space for it in the design, but I have a feeling that there will be many more options in a year or so. Sounds like a good drive-train selection.

Here's an update you won't like. This generic snow storm has collapsed the roof of the temporary shelter I had built over CarBEN, and several hundred pounds of snow and the shards of wood have shattered the hatch door ...

The sides are also broken. I am very sad. Things will have to be assessed in daylight after unburying it. Pictures and a video will be posted, soon.

My heart sank when I viewed the video.

I can only give my miniscule support via text with little else to offer. If I was closer, I would certainly lend a hand.
