This vehicle is still popular in some Asian countries with the wet-rice civilization. E.g Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, South China etc. And it's 'buffalo-power' :lol:

Here is a cowpower vehicle and usually twin engine because cows are much weaker than buffalos.

Buffalos are assets . They plough fields efficiently , especially in terraced fields where tractors can't access. They are maintenance free and feed on grass, which is free . A tourist attraction now .
Can turn into a considerable sum on selling them .

It's an oriental wisdom , that might not be aware of to city folks .

That's why Mark Zuckerberg came to VN just to ride a buffalo :lol:

BM, you might not know that buffalo or cow crap is money here. I know some millionaires who are super rich because of this thing :cussing

snaker wrote:My yesterday trip was 92.5km/114Ah. I had to pass a 5km bad road so the chair consumed more power than normal. I think this 150Ah pack would be safe for the 120km range if roads are relatively good.

I stop sometime if seeing something interesting or talking with local people. The total stopping time is usually about a hour. The first time I drove 83km, it was very hard. That's because I did not prepare well for a long trip. Now I know the way to cope it. That's simple. Just eating and drinking as much as possible before going out. And putting a oresol bottle + 2 red bull cans in the bag. I can drive continuously in a whole day. I like the feeling of moving and when moving I can breath more easily. Seriously, I start feeling that I need more than 150Ah :mrgreen:

My chair came with a small NF22 (50Ah) battery box. We had to modify a little to extend the width from 24cm to 26cm. Then it could easily fit 16x75Ah cells plus cables/fuses/connectors. I am still confused why somebody here has a bigger GRP24 box but struggles in fitting 150Ah. And my chair still has a lot empty space under the seat due to its wrong design and build. If the battery box uses all this space, it can contain even 200Ah or more.

This is my chair
http://enjoycare.com/En/ProductView.asp?ID=24

The battery box is detachable. It lies between 2 rails which is 24cm wide. We modified the rails to allow 26cm width. And make another steal box the same size as the original battery box but 2cm wider. Its actual size (WxDxH) is 26cmx30cmx25cm.

You are right . Everyone can get the most space out of their chairs , if one modified it a bit .

This box has been fitted into an ARROW , and can be as big as : L382/W284/H270 mm.

Same chair as Ex-goose' and same cell , I fitted 135Ah while he said he can only house 90.

Its all mind over matter.
You *make* the most Ah fit, by modifying the chair a little, careful cell choice, etc. Once you have a plan, and a :hammer its easy.

Hi,

Snaker is using aluminium shell prismatic cells which are compact for their energy density whereas headway cells, though are comparable, their assembly eats up more space with the holders. :lol:

I couldn't find it in a quick search, but I remember a site a few years back that had a 'Virtual Dog Shit' generator - a long list of adjustable program parameters including breed of dog, size, weather conditions, diet, etc. that resulted in a picture of the resulting 'output' (to scale, on a grass surface if temp was above freezing, snow if below....)

I know folks that spent considerable time playing with variables to see the effect of changing them... :dance
