EV Parts - Charger, DC/DC, J1772 inlet, etc.

I have a few parts left over from a test conversion to 64 volts. The conversion went OK, but the motor in the EV was just too small to handle the extra power.

1. ElCon 2500 charger. Uses either 120v or 240v input. No switching necessary, just plug it in. Very good for a J1772 upgrade. $500 (like new - only a dozen or charging cycles on it.). This is a 60v charger currently set for 64v (nominal) lead acid batteries. Can be reset by ElCon in Sacramento for voltages within 10% + or - of 60v (nominal) and for various charging curves - Lithium, PbA, Gel, AGM, etc. Comes with battery cables and temperature compensation probe. I really like this charger, but unfortunately my current EV is 108 volts.

2. J1772 inlet with active vehicle-side control. Mounted inside a pair of outdoor-type aluminum switch boxes. J1772 inlet box has a door, the plug-side has a normal duplex 5-20 (120v, 20 amp) plug. Intended for use with the ElCon 2500. One of the outlets is paired with the J1772 inlet, and the other is paired with a short cord that used to connect to a regular 120v inlet connector - currently just a bare extension cord ready for your vehicle/plug. Intended for mounting inside a vehicle, with the J1772 door on the outside. $180.

2. Meanwell SD-200C-12 DC/DC converter. Dataplate states 36 to 72 volts input. Adjustable output 12VDC (nominal). Puts out 16+ amps @ 12v. Originally purchased as a spare, but I never needed to use it as the first one is still running strong. I used a different one (same model) one in the Citicar for the five years I owned it with no issues. $50. I have used this model at 48 and 64 volts with good results.

3. Tall 'tower type' forward/reverse contactor set. Good for up to about 200 amps max, and 100 amps continuous. Old but still useable, some pitting on contact points. Replacement contact points are available online. $50.

4. 12v 'heater'. Old item they used to sell at truck stops to keep your feet warm. Small and somewhat noisy fan, but works OK as a defroster. $10.

5. 48v axial flow computer 'muffin' fans. About 5" x 5". Have 3 @ $5 each.
