This company is advertising a 8 kWh extra pack for our vehicles:http://eauto.si/metron-shop/?product=el ... e-extender
Interestingly, it also uses a DC/DC converter, which boosts the extender battery from 60V to 360V. I'd like to get one of those converters..
In my trip planning gyrations, I looked at some of the older posts on adding a pack and clicked on this site. It appeared to be closed so I sent emails to Metron:
“Unfortunatelly we are not producing BREX for iMiev any more We might restart next year, price will be around 7000 EUR without VAT for 8 kWh battery. We have sold 3 pcs, problem is that product[i]on of suitable DCDC converters has stopped in China. We need DCDC converter from 48 V DC to 370 V DC with 3 kW power”
It would seem that a rental pack, like the portable rental Chademo charger would be useful for use on trips.
And bundled with a trailer?
