In the last few days I have been thinking about the kind of battery range I will need given the fact that I will not be able to Plug-In at work in the near future. Once again, I am gravitating towards the Thundersky lithium batteries and I am reading about many other EV owners taking this route. I calculated that 40 TS-LFP160AHA batteries would work out nicely. I would be able to either place the entire 40 pack in the trunk or break up the pack into two and place 30 in the rear and 10 in the front. The overall weight of the car would remain low (same or less than the original weight). According to certain vendor specs, 40 of these batteries could give me an approximate range of 100 km at a cruising speed of 60 mph which would be great and I would only need to charge once at home overnight.
Here is a sketch of a 40 pack of TS-LFP160AHA:
Last night I was watching CBC Television's "The Nature Of Things" program. The episode named "The Suzuki Diaries" about sustainability showed how different countries are harnessing nature's free energy while creating healthy economies and cleaner environments. If you have a chance to watch this, it is very interesting.
