Striving to source my parts and pieces as locally as feasible, I contacted AllCell Tech in Chicago, Il. They kindly agreed to supply me with 2 x 48V, 20Ah batteries. There were plenty of less expensive options on EBay out of China but I just wasn’t feeling the vibe and that path runs counter to the efforts I’m making to eliminate C02.
These new batteries effectively triple the capacity of my current system. On battery power alone I should be good for 200 – 300km depending on wind and how much I load in the trailer. With sunny weather, I can probably count on another 50km – 100km per day from the solar panels – enough to make my goal of under 10 days!Tweet
