- Jun 3, 2009Howdy,
I was successful in uploading the files to the solectria_ev Yahoo group
website and tried to post a message saying so over an hour ago.
Somehow, the message never showed up, so I'll try again.
The three files are:
1. Instructions for PFC 1500W Charger.doc
You can order the chargers from Greg McCrea in Sacramento, CA.
Contact info is at his website: www.zivanusa.com .
He does not have any mention of these charges on the website, but look
at the QuotationRetail.doc file I uploaded for the price list.
These chargers are programmed for your specific battery pack in a
similar way to what he does for the Zivan chargers.
