    Q85 battery

    Any recommendations for the most competitive price Amaron Q85 battery for the rides with the start stop function?
  3. Installed iRoad X9 in my car last year. Had set the voltage threshold to 11.8 V. Went for a vacation for 7 days. When I came back I could not unlock the car with smart key and could not start the engine. The iRoad had drained the car battery. So it looks like after it detects 11.8 V it does not disconnect the power. It still draws power from the car battery. Lesson learnt. Remove the power plug and USB cable from the camera if you are going on vacation. I don't know which workshops can install the battery pack that is discussed in some forums.
  4. A post about a customer who refused to pay after a battery replacement workshop rendered its services has gone viral online. Spotted on its own facebook page, FastFix Car Battery Replacement Service explained how the whole issue came about. It wrote in its post that its client, Mr C, reached out to them saying that he needed help as his car could not start. After listening to the symptoms the car showed( car still cranks and aircon is not as strong as before), the workshop concluded that it needed a new battery. However, upon reaching Mr C, whose car was parked in the CBD and hence the need to pay for ERP charges, the guys from FastFix realised that it wasn't the battery that needed replacing. Concluding that there was nothing the guys from FastFix could do to help, Mr C was then asked to pay for the labour fee that had been pointed out before in their Whatsapp conversation. Unfortunately, Mr C disagreed and refused to pay the $50 that they had agreed on as nothing has been done to his Kia. There was not much FastFix could do which probably prompted them to 'share their story' of the client on their facebook page. Here are some of the notable comment in the post.
  5. A documentary video from CNA Insider showing us about the explosive facts of overcharging a bargain-price lithium-ion battery. This applies to mobile phone and other batteries that are lithium-ion. But PMD' owners, please take note. You guys have higher risk involved. Due to the sheer size of the batteries. So you must be wondering, how dangerous it can be right? CNA Insider has gotten a professor from NUS, Dr Palani Balaya to demonstrate how overcharging lithium-ion batteries can be dangerous. So here's a lithium-ion cell This cell should take 3 volts to charge. Let's ramp it up to 5 volts! ⚡️ Okay. Something is growing. . . For those who are watching the video, fret not. No need to move back from your screen. Do you notice the smoke? More smoke. And it goes. . . Kabooz!!!! Oh my goodness!@#$%!@#$ So imagine this is multiplied to the size of a scooter. To avoid all these mishaps, please look out for battery certification. For the full video, please watch from here.

    Cost to replace hybrid Battery

    Hi All. I am interested to find out the price of replacing the hybrid battery for our vehicle. How much does it varies from brand to brand? Anybody had theirs replace before?
  9. Hi bros, I was researching about these Lithium-Iron Batteries (LiFePo4, LFP Batteries) and was pretty impressed by the benefits it has compared to what's available in the market now. I am quite new to owning a car and perhaps a bit too excited about trying new stuff for my car so would like to seek your knowledge and opinion on this. What really caught my attention was the benefits of it (albeit the price, not sure how much but they say more ex than the normal batteries): No maintenance (like those sealed type) Suitable for start/stop feature (haha this one I know not many people like!) No explosion (they say very safe, won't catch fire) No spillage Non-toxic and no rare earth materials Constant & stable discharge Light-weight (this one really quite amazing, like only 6 to 9kg???!) Longer cycle life Battery management system (not sure what this is for) I mean there must be a reason why the electric cars and buses are using this LFP batteries right? But I will definitely do more research first and would be great if you guys are able to share your thoughts! TIA https://medium.com/solar-microgrid/battery-showdown-lead-acid-vs-lithium-ion-1d37a1998287 https://www.roadpro.co.uk/lithium-battery-guide
  10. Hi Guys, Like to find out from you guys that which battery brand is the consumer's choice. Kindly share with me the battery you are using and maybe why did you choose that battery! (:

    Dyson, the New Kid on the Block

    Dyson developing an electric car, according to government documents The company last year refused to confirm they were working on a green vehicle, but a government plan on infrastructure suggests they are Dyson is developing an electric car at its headquarters in Wiltshire with help from public money, according to government documents. The company, which makes a range of products that utilise the sort of highly efficient motors needed for an electric car such as vacuum cleaners, hand dryers and bladeless fans, last year refused to rule out rumours it was building one. But on Wednesday, the government appeared to have accidentally disclosed Dyson is working on one, along with other big companies outside of the automotive industry, such as Apple. “The government is funding Dyson to develop a new battery electric vehicle at their headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. This will secure £174m of investment in the area, creating over 500 jobs, mostly in engineering,” said the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan, published on Wednesday. When Dyson CEO, Max Conze, was asked last year if the company was working on an electric car, he said: “We are ruling nothing out. Like our friends in Cupertino [Apple] we are also unhealthily obsessive when it comes to taking apart our products to make them better.” Dyson recently reported profits up 20% in 2015, driven by strong growth in China, and said it plans to invest £1bn in battery technology over the next five years. Last October, Dyson bought solid-state battery company, Sakti3, for $90m, which founder Sir James Dyson said had “developed a breakthrough in battery technology.” Asked if the company was, as the government suggested, developing an electric car, a Dyson spokesman said: “We never comment on products that are in development.” The Guardian has also contacted the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles, which encourages the roll-out of electric vehicles as a way to cut air pollution and lower carbon emissions, and is awaiting details on the exact level of funding. Dyson, 68, has a long history of inventions. He designed the Rotork Sea Truck, a fast cargo boat in 1970, which has been used by the military and is still sold today. In 1974, he designed the Ballbarrow, a barrow with a ball replacing the wheel, having been frustrated by wheelbarrows getting stuck in mud on a building site. His breakthrough was the bagless vaucum cleaner, which was inspired by air cyclones used in sawmills to suck up sawdust. Since then, he has created bladeless fans and the Airblade hand dryer. Many of Dyson’s devices use small, light and efficient electric motors developed over 10 years by his company, which may find application in developing a new electric car. Dyson is a now worth several billion pounds and in 2014 pledged his company would spend £1.5bn on research and development to create future products, aiming to launch 100 new electrical products by 2018. Dyson Reportedly Developing An Electric Car Of Its Own There are so many potential jokes, quips, and overall smartass remarks to be mined from the prospect of a vacuum cleaner company designing a car which, contrary to the firm’s essential business, doesn’t suck, that we’ll cut straight to the otherwise buried lead… Originally tipped by The Guardian, U.K. company Dyson is developing an electric car of its own at its headquarters in Wiltshire, England, and according to government documents, the Brits are publically funding the enterprise. Both the company and the government have yet to officially comment on the situation. The Guardian says a just-published National Infrastructure Delivery Plan revealed, likely by accident, “The government is funding Dyson to develop a new battery electric vehicle at their headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. This will secure £174m of investment in the area, creating over 500 jobs, mostly in engineering.” The newspaper further reports that Dyson bought solid-state battery company, Sakti3, for $90m last October, which founder Sir James Dyson said had “developed a breakthrough in battery technology.” In 2014 Dyson reportedly pledged his company would spend £1.5bn on research and development to create future products, with the lofty goal of bringing 100 new items to market by 2018. A big boost in the company’s favor in this regard is that its famed lineup of vacuum cleaners, bladeless fans and hand dryers not only incorporate cutting-edge electric motors, but come wrapped in revolutionary designs that essentially transform everyday household products into display-worthy items and enable Dyson to command premium prices for their wares. Substitute “home computer” for “vacuum cleaner” and “operating system” for “electric motors,” and that sounds a lot like Apple if you ask us.

    GS Yuasa Car Battery

    Anyone use this? http://www.sgcarmart.com/news/writeup.php?AID=193 I suppose is a good battery since come from Japan.
  20. Hi Bro n Sis, Anyone know where to get this hammock, i hate the wiring, prefer battery type: Kum sia in advance.
  21. recommended by the local Varta battery distributor to two shops in the west. one shop offered me a varta battery of the capacity i wanted but the battery has no indication of the Varta brand on the body. It has a BMW marked on the body presumably it is used on BMW car but mine is not a BMW but the capacity is suitable for my car. the battery does not come in a box as most new batteries do. it is wrapped in cellophane plastic. It looks very much like a new battery to me. the boss said is a new battery and it just came in a few days ago. he said could check the barcode but when I scanned the barcode the search ended with no result can this be a new battery as the shop is recommended by the local varta distributor
  22. Which one do u think is better
  23. I always drive till my battery flat and then call AA to change. The last time I changed was 4 Mar 2010 when mileage was 116k. Had a 45ah battery for $133. Now mileage 205k and last servicing at 200k TCM said my battery ok. But I got a $10 battery voucher from AA that would expire end Jun. Should I change or wait till it is flat? Till now, there is still no sign that the battery would up lorry. How long more will it go? As usual I would wait till it is flat. But recently, I have been frequenting JB at least once a month and I am concerned that I might be caught with a flat battery with no help from AA and I cant use the voucher.
