what about a little more practicable solution? a adjustable switch at the throttle, for WOT alternator disable. every time, you go for accel the car, the alt is go for a rest. if the car is coasting or idling, the loss is filled up. kinda hybrid, my prius do this every day.

in fakt i did this with the santamos AC and the little caravan behind, uphill the AC was switched off and the car maintained the speed.

Time for a new one

This time i chose new cells.



I started out trying to weld the ABS with a soldering iron, but that left a large hollow tunnel in the centre of the weld, so i finished the job using "solvent welding" i.e filling the 'V' i cut with ABS melted in acetone.



With no BMS at hand i just pulled the balancing wires out of the top.

Except for the cells, all parts were scavenged.
